Ezra Miller's standalone The Flash film has experienced a lot of highs and lows throughout its production and while recent reports have claimed that Warner Bros. Discovery is considering dropping the film altogether, it looks like the DC Extended Universe film is no longer in danger of receiving proverbial David Zaslav's axe.
Now, more promising news surrounding the film is coming to light and it looks like it's on track to be the DCEU's next big hit after the original Aquaman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming project has received some of the highest test screening scores for a DC film since Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. The outlet also claims that the morale behind the scenes has been generally positive as of late, especially after Ezra issued an apology earlier this month.
In a follow-up report, The Direct says that The Flash has been given a score in the mid-80s which is a pretty good rating considering VFX work for the film is far from being completed.

As it stands, the public perception of Miller is still divided. Still, the actor's recent apology and revelation that he's finally seeking professional help seemed to have given some of his critics a change of heart. It'll be interesting to see if the film's box office returns will reach unprecedented numbers but if it's really that good, I'm sure fans will be willing to set aside their ill feelings towards the controversial actor.
DC's The Flash is on track for release on June 23, 2022.
