The Flash storyline: what is the plot of the DC blockbuster?
The Flash is loosely based on the Flashpoint story from the DC comics. In the original, Barry Allen travels back in time to prevent the murder of his mother. In the upcoming DC movie, the superhero’s time travel is primarily used to open up a multiverse in the style of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The Flash controversy surrounding lead actor Ezra Miller
In April 2020, a video surfaced of Ezra Miller choking a woman in an Icelandic bar. The police were not called at the time. Then on March 28, 2022, Miller was arrested after an altercation with patrons at a karaoke bar in Hawaii. In the process, Milller allegedly yelled obscenities, snatched the mic from a woman and lunged at a man.
After being released on bond, Miller allegedly entered a couple’s bedroom on March 29 and made threats. The victims then filed for a restraining order.
After Ezra Miller is said to have already attracted negative attention on The Flash set, Warner executives have considered three scenarios for dealing with the DC movie. This includes the extreme case that the film is not released at all, similar to Batgirl. In the meantime, however, Ezra Miller has already spoken out for the first time and announced that he has sought treatment for psychological problems.
