LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: DC fans had been excitedly awaiting the announcement of the next era of projects the franchise has been envisioning. The day finally came on Monday, January 30, as DC founders James Gunn and Peter Safran announced DCU Chapter One the titled 'Gods and Monsters', the first phase of their projects. However, the excitement of fans was marred by another announcement by Safran, which highlighted the possibility of Ezra Miller reprising his role as The Flash.

'The Flash' star Miller, who started facing the ire of the public in 2020, after a video of him choking a womann went viral, has had an extremely tumultuous 2022. From multiple arrests, including for second-degree assault for allegedly throwing a chair at a 26-year-old woman in a private residence, to being accused of sexual assault and grooming. In the past one year Miller's reputation has dropped to a point where his presence on any movie set is bound to invite negative reactions.

At a press event, while announcing their next phase of projects under 'Chapter One', Safran reportedly said that DC is open to further collaborations with Miller.  “Ezra is completely committed to their recovery. And we are fully supportive of that journey that they’re on right now. When the time is right, when they feel like they’re ready to have the discussion, we’ll all figure out what the best path forward is. But right now, they are completely focused on their recovery. And in our conversations with them over the last couple of months, it feels like they’re making enormous progress,” Safran was quoted as saying by multiple publications. 

The announcement has, however, not gone down well with DC fans, who continue to vocally express their ire on social media. "They better recast his a** at the end of the flash," wrote one user, while another commented, "he deserves prison time." A third user wrote, "they/them are a 'recovering' predator...", and a fourth commented, "nope ain't watching anything with them in it."





What movies are planned under DCU Chapter One: 'Gods and Monsters'?

The first rebooted DCU slate that will unfold across the next few years will include 'Superman: Legacy', 'Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow', 'The Brave and the Bold', 'Swamp Thing', and 'The Authority', under 'Chapter One: Gods and Monsters'. Apart from these, 'The Batman Part II', and 'Joker: Folie à Deux' have also been confirmed but will be labeled under the 'Elseworlds' banner.
