Actor Ezra Miller has seen better days due to a large amount of controversy and legal battles the actor has found themselves in lately. Known for hit projects like the Fantastic Beasts film series and Trainwreck, Miller’s personal life seems to trump their professional career in more ways than one. Because of ongoing legal disputes that have seen the actor accused of assault and burglary, Miller’s reputation as one of several protagonists in the DC Extended Universe has recently been in jeopardy. Unlike the downfall of Batgirl, however, Ezra Miller’s solo film The Flash has yet to be canceled by Warner Bros., and there may be a good reason.

According to a report by World of Reel, Ezra Miller’s The Flash is apparently so good that test audiences have rated the film with the highest test scores any movie has received in the DC Extended Universe history. Now, that may not be saying much due to the lackluster reviews that many of the DCEU films have received over the years, but it’s welcome news to anyone following Ezra Miller’s controversies. Most movies like The Flash could have been shelved by now if their stars acted the way that Miller has in recent years, but it seems that Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav has a lot of confidence in the film and its broad appeal to DC fans. The movie is set for a release date of June 23, 2023.

Prior to the stellar word of mouth for Ezra Miller’s performance in The Flash, the actor has made headlines for themselves by taking a world tour that has seen them get into a lot of hot water. Vox reports that Miller has allegedly started a sex cult and acted in an inappropriate manner with an underage person. They have been accused of stealing from a Vermont home and also holding a woman hostage. Last week, Miller apologized for many of their past transgressions and confirmed that they were seeking treatment for mental health issues. Still, with everything going on in the actor’s life, it appears that The Flash is still a go for a summer release next year.

Ezra Miller and the ensemble cast of The Flash may be thanking test audiences for their excellent ratings of the movie so far, which is set to costar Michael Keaton in a return to proper Batman form. In comparison, many films under the DC Extended Universe’s umbrella have not been crowd pleasers in recent years, even though their box office returns suggest otherwise. Rotten Tomatoes currently ranks 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with 29% on its Tomatometer, the first movie that Ezra Miller appeared in as Barry Allen, aka The Flash. They will next be seen opposite Sir Ben Kingsley in Daliland, which will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. There is no word yet if Miller will be in attendance for the film, which tells the story of famed painter Salvador Dali and his turbulent marriage to his wife, Gala Dali.
