The Key to Success for “The Flash”

The official trailer for the “Flash” movie from DC was released on Super Bowl Sunday this year. For the last three years, the release of this movie has been in question because of the notoriety that the lead actor, Ezra Miller was receiving for constantly popping back into the news for harassing or talking to underaged children, and even choking someone in a random store. At face value, obviously, this seems like a bad idea for promoting a film or creating a public figure, but maybe there’s more to it.

This past week the video game, “Hogwarts Legacy,” was released. The video game is based on the wizarding world of Harry Potter, which is a book series by author J.K. Rowling, who recently made some anti-LGBTQ+ remarks and stances. Due to this, many people thought that the game, based on their association with Rowling, would be badly received, but because the hate for her was so immense, this led to the even greater promotion of the video game and it has now broken several records for most viewed and talked about.

This being said, Ezra Miller is a very different person and has a very different background, so his aggressions might be harder to forgive, but maybe in all of this, to be successful, kindness and acceptability do not factor, being polarizing and talked about is what really matters. Hitler, Elon Musk, Donald Trump, etc… all were made popular because of their polarizing narrative contradicting the normality and their ability to stay in the limelight.

  1. This is like the phrase no such thing as bad press because people tend to only remember that they saw somebody do something, not what they actually did when decision time has come

  2. this sentiment seems to be similar to the notion of no such thing as bad press, meaning that what sticks with people most is that the people were seen not what they did. people realize they saw or heard somebody do something bu don’t remember what they did, at least not immediately or quickly enough for most things to matter.

  3. Watching The Flash with Ezra Miller in it will be a little weird. I started watching The Flash Series on CW where Grant Gustin is The Flash. I think the producer should have stayed with Grant Gustin for the movie because the image of him as The Flash is already stuck in people’s heads for the longest time. You know, just like how Tobey Maguire was, is, and will forever be the Spiderman we love. Anyways, I am looking forward to this movie. I hope this turns out well.
