Ezra Miller has created a lot of buzz around them and The Flash through their controversial acts. And after the change in leadership and the arrival of James Gunn and Peter Safran at DC, Ezra Miller’s future as the Scarlet Speedster seems to be uncertain.

Even though the Snydercut improved the Flash as a character and increased Miller’s significance in the movie’s plot by a substantial margin in comparison to the 2017’s Joss Whedon’s Justice league. But the inclusion of one scene in particular in the Snydercut didn’t sit well with the fans.

The Snydercut includes a problematic scene of Ezra Miller as the Flash

Zack Snyder’s Justice League was finally released in 2021 after immense fan support and was able to live up to the fans’ expectations. But among all the welcome addition in the new cut, the one sequence which didn’t stand out was the scene between Barry Allen and Iris.

The scene includes Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen looking for a job at a doggy daycare, and after Iris stumbles into a traffic accident, the Scarlett speedster proceeds to save her. Although on paper the scene sounds okay, the problem arrives the way it plays out. Instead of quickly saving her, the speedster proceeds to fawn over Iris while brushing her hair out of her face which comes out as creepy and a total breach of privacy.

Although the scene was included to present Iris as Barry’s love interest and develop their connection, but the way it was executed comes off as creepy and unnecessary.

The Snyderverse is resting for good

Although the Snyderverse had its moments and a bunch of good films over its run, it didn’t fully manage to develop itself as a cohesive universe. And with the box office returns being underwhelming with few exceptions, the universe finally seems to be nearing its end.

James Gunn and Peter Safran have been adamant about pulling off the bandages from the old DCEU, which was on a slow death spiral since BVS. And with James Gunn soon releasing the initial chapters for the new 10-year saga, it seems that the DCEU will be resting for good and will provide room for a more cohesive universe led by James Gunn.

And with the exit of Henry Cavill as Superman and rumors of Jason Momoa being recast as Lobo in the new DCU, it’d be interesting to witness James Gunn’s plan for Ezra Miller and their future after The Flash.

Even though the Snydercut removed the abomination of a scene from the 2017’s cut, where Barry lands on Diana’s chest, it still doesn’t justify the inclusion of the sequence with Iris. Although Zack Snyder tried to tone down the scene through Rose Betts’ piano cover of Song to the Siren, it still comes out as toxic and creepy.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is available to stream on HBO Max.
