Is 'The Flash' canceled? The movie was delayed several times.

Miller made the headlines for disorderly behavior twice in the spring of 2022 and at least once in 2020. In 2020, they were caught on camera appearing to choke and push a woman to the ground. The incident occurred at the Prikið Kaffihús in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Miller's antics sparked heated debate several times, with many condemning the A-lister. Calls for their cancellation are nothing new. According to the latest rumors, however, Warner Bros. Pictures might decide to pull the plug on The Flash.

An insider close to Miller told Rolling Stone that there had been complaints about the actor's conduct. As the source said, they had "frequent meltdowns" during the shooting of The Flash.

'The Flash' first sparked cancellation rumors in the spring of 2020, after the incident in Iceland.

Fans started discussing the prospect of The Flash getting canceled after a video of Miller seemingly choking a woman started to make the rounds in the spring of 2020.

The Flash had already been delayed several times at that point, having first been scheduled for a 2018 release. (That plan was scrapped when the movie lost its first director.) Its new proposed release date was June 23, 2023, but that may change.

According to a rumor, Warner Bros. may have held an emergency meeting about Miller's future on March 30, 2022. Apparently, they might get banned from promotional opportunities such as red carpet events. However, the movie's release hasn't been canceled yet.

'The Flash' has not yet been canceled, though some fans believe it may get delayed indefinitely.

At this stage, it's not entirely certain if a re-shoot of The Flash would be on the table, but some fans want Grant Gustin to replace Miller. According to another rumor, Warner Bros. may decide to delay the movie indefinitely.

"The Flash getting delayed indefinitely I fear. There's always something with them," tweeted @DaveTheAnodite.

Warner Bros. announced on March 9, 2022, that the release date of several movies has been pushed back. Black Adam is scheduled to arrive in theatres on Oct. 21, 2022. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is set to premiere on March 17, 2023. Wonka is scheduled to come out on Dec. 15, 2023. The Flash, as it stands, will arrive in cinemas on June 23, 2023. But we'll believe it when we see it.
