Gunn is fully hyping this just praying it is successful.
Just my prediction. Gunn will manage to get a few well written produced films out of this but ultimately the plan to get this entire verse organized and back onb track will fall apart. They have already gone back on the "won't see multiple Batmans running around" part.

That looked promising but still hate the lead guy. I think a Flash/Man of Steel 2 themed movie could be phenomenal.

We hate on him because not because of his Flash on screen but being Human Trash off it.

I don't like him as an actor either. I thought he was a poor Barry Allen and that they could have cast the role better. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is the only role of his that I've seen that I've liked his performance and I feel that was more of him playing himself than an actual role.

Easy to explain....He is a literal p.e.d.o.

Sara Jumping Eagle and Chase Iron Eyes allege in court documents that their 18-year-old Tokata was verbally and physically abused by Miller after being groomed by the actor for six years. Tokata’s parents say that Miller first met Tokata in 2016 when she was just 12 years old, when all four were involved in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Miller kept tabs on Tokata over the years, the parents allege, later flying the then 14-year-old to the London premiere of their movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and encouraging her musical aspirations.

But in June, Tokata’s parents would obtain a temporary protective order requesting that Miller be kept away from their child. In tribal court documents, the parents, who are members of the Lakota Nation in North Dakota and South Dakota, state that the actor had been abusive toward their daughter over the years; they allege that Miller attempted to sleep in the same bed as Tokata when she was 14. Insider also spoke with someone who alleged they saw Miller having sex with Takota in December 2021. Tokata denied both claims to Insider, calling the latter “so very false.”


In January, Miller and guests at the actor’s Vermont compound told Tokata’s parents that their daughter was incapacitated after taking LSD. When Jumping Eagle and Iron Eyes saw Tokata, they told Insider, she was “incoherent,” without a phone or ID, and had bruises on her arms and left cheek. After a few weeks with her parents, Tokata would reconnect with Miller, leading to her parents’ legal action. On June 7, the tribal court said it could not locate or serve Miller and demanded they appear in-person on July 12, the day the judge later closed the case to the public, according to Insider.

The timeline good god. When you have this many reports happening from all over, with video evidence, this isn't "people getting money"

February 2020: When filming for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Miller reportedly took up residence at an Airbnb in an Iceland suburb along with “artists, expats, and spiritual confidants,” according to an August 4 Business Insider report. One anonymous woman, who compared the house to a “commune,” felt like “everyone was hypnotized.” Miller reportedly paid for food, weed, and lodging at the Airbnb, where they were said to have held speeches about spirituality, alluding to possessing spiritual powers. Several sources told BI they were afraid of Miller’s emotional outbursts.

April 1, 2020: In a since-deleted tweet, a disturbing video alleges to show Miller choking a woman and throwing her to the ground at Prikið Kaffihús, a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland. Variety confirms that the altercation took place at the trendy bar and employees identify Miller in the video, who they escort from the premises. The seven-second clip makes its rounds on Twitter on April 6, and shows a person saying, “Oh you wanna fight? That’s what you wanna do?” to a woman in a bar. She appears to be jokingly readying herself for a fight. The person, identified as Miller, then grabs the woman by the throat and throws her to the ground. “Woah, bro,” says the person filming the incident. “Bro.” A source at the bar tells Variety that the situation began after “pushy” fans confront Miller, until Miller physically attacks the woman. Restaurant staff escort Miller from the premises. They are not under investigation by authorities following the incident, police confirm to The Wrap.

That month, BI later reported, Miller rented out parts of a hotel in northern Iceland to record music with local musicians. One young woman, who was 18 at the time, began a sexual relationship with Miller during the six days she stayed at the hotel. “Ezra was super-manipulative. They kind of had us all under their finger,” she said, describing several verbal altercations. “They were able to twist and pull everything that I thought I knew about the world.”

January 28, 2022: In a since-deleted video posted to their Instagram account, Miller tells members of a North Carolina chapter of the Ku Klux Klan to “kill themselves” with their own guns, or else “we’ll do it for you if that’s what you want.” It’s unclear if Miller is responding to a specific incident. The video goes viral on social media.


March 27, 2022: Miller is arrested in Hawaii and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment following a physical confrontation with patrons at a karaoke bar. In a public statement from the Hawaii Police Department Hilo Patrol, police allege that Miller became “agitated” while patrons began singing a karaoke rendition of “Shallow” from A Star is Born. They began yelling “obscenities” at the patrons and grabbed a microphone from a woman singing karaoke and later lunged at a man playing darts, according to police. “The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times to no avail,” police state. Miller’s $500 bail is paid by a couple they live with at a hostel. Per TMZ, a video circulates of a weeks-earlier confrontation with police in Hawaii.

March 29, 2022: The couple who lived with Miller at the hostel file a restraining order against the actor. In documents obtained by Radar Online, the couple ask the court to order Miller to not contact them in any form and to stay away from their home and places of work. Following the incident at the karaoke bar, the couple claims that Miller returned home and threatened the couple, saying “I will bury you and your **** wife.” The petition alleges that Miller stole the wife’s passport and the husband’s wallet, which contains his credit cards, social-security card, and driver’s license. It’s unclear whether the items were returned. A judge grants the couple the restraining order the following day. The order is dropped in mid-April.

April 6, 2022: Sources tell Rolling Stone that Warner Bros. and DC executives held an emergency impromptu meeting to discuss Miller’s recent controversies and their future with the studio. “According to a knowledgeable source, the consensus in the room was to hit pause on any future projects involving Miller including possible appearances in the DC Extended Universe,” Rolling Stone reports. An inside source says that Miller had “frequent meltdowns” during last year’s production of The Flash, although the sources stresses that Miller did not yell or have violent outbursts.

April 19, 2022: Three weeks after their March arrest, the actor was again taken into custody in Hawaii for allegedly throwing a chair which hit a woman at a private party, leaving the 26-year-old woman with a half-inch cut on her forehead. In a public statement from Hawaii police, authorities say that Miller was arrested around 1:30 a.m. during a traffic stop and released from custody at around 4 a.m. pending further investigation.

May 16, 2022: Music producer Oliver Ignatious and rapper Ghais Guevara claim that Miller stole the music they worked on and posted it on social media without credits. Ignatious and Miller met up in both the Northeast and Hawaii to collaborate on new music, weeks before their first arrest in Hawaii. Ignatious plans to file a court order for Miller to take the music down. The link to the songs are no longer featured on Miller’s Instagram bio.

June 8, 2022: The parents of 18-year-old activist Gibson Iron Eyes, who is nonbinary, accuse Miller of grooming their child. In court documents obtained by TMZ from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court, Gibson’s parents, attorney and activist Chase Iron Eyes, and pediatrician Sara Jumping Eagle seek intervention from the court, alleging that Miller has been involved with their child since they were 12. A judge signed the request for a protective order, which says Miller cannot contact the child, Sara, or Chase or be within 100 yards of their residence.

Gibson and Miller met while they were both protesting for the LandBack Reclamation Movement. in Standing Rock in 2016. According to court documents, Miller allegedly flew Gibson to London in 2017 to visit the set of Fantastic Beasts. Gibson was 14 at the time and Ezra was 25. Their parents allege Miller tried to sleep in the same bed as Gibson and provided Gibson with alcohol, marijuana, and LSD. The parents go on to accuse the actor of influencing Gibson in their decision to drop out of their private school in Massachusetts in December 2021. (Miller offered to pay their tuition when Gibson was 16 and their parents believe this created a “a sense of indebtedness”). They add that when they flew to Vermont in January to check on Gibson, their child had bruises on their body, and was not in possession of their own driver’s license, car keys, or bank card. Since then, Gibson and Ezra have been traveling together, Gibson’s parents claim. They were spotted in Hawaii together in a video, per TMZ. “Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata,” court documents allege. A hearing is scheduled for July 12.

Grant Gustin really is a better Flash. Warner won't even acknowledge the CW though.

Another thing Marvel got right was incorporating the best of the Netflix series. I would have been super bummed if they recast Matt Murdock

Trailer isn't bad but I'm still out. I really can't stand Ezra, especially as Barry, and not going to support his movies. It was bad casting and ready to move on to Gunn's DC already.

I rewatched this and it had Christian Bale’s version of Batman’s motorcycle. Think that is just going to be a throwaway Easter egg or secret cameo?

We know Marvel is not above them. Wonder if DC is smart enough to do something similar?

Grace Randolph had a rumor that Bale was going to be in the movie and become the new permanent Batman. It naturally got shot down right away and it's "Soooooo" Grace Randolph. I have trouble buying the permanent part but maybe she had a source on the movie. Bale has said in the past that he'd only return with Nolan but you never know. They might have backed up the Brinks truck.

No studio does "Permanent". I heard the same thing that without Nolan his answer was no. Although maybe he considers a cameo?

They sort of did though. Ezra did appear in the Flash TV series in a brief cameo.

I have this on zero authority whatsoever but just a hunch… Bale’s Batman shows up here also.

People have been guessing that since you see a similar Batman motorcycle in the trailer.

The preview in Guardians was so good, I got goosebumps 3 or 4 times. This might be the best DC movie to date.

Yup, goosebumps again!

"Never rub another man's rhubarb." One of the best movie lines ever.

I have come to expect mixed DC movies or to be dissapointed when something looks great via a trailer from them but then the movie comes out. The trailer looks good but I am cautiously optimistic.
