Ezra Miller has been no stranger to the headlines lately. However, virtually all the press has been bad due to essentially all of them have been bad press due to run-in’s with the law. However, despite chatter that DC might drop Miller as The Flash, it has been confirmed that The Flash will still move forward with Miller.
The 29-year-old actor, who played Barry Allen aka the Flash in 2018’s Justice League and the 2021 Zack Snyder cut, also was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment in Hawaii in April. Miller allegedly threw a chair at a woman and leaving her with a forehead gash.
In good news for the troubled star, just last month it was reported that they will no longer face legal trouble in Germany after prosecutors reportedly dropped a trespassing investigation.
The star, who uses they/them pronouns, had been accused of refusing to leave the Berlin home of a woman named only as Zara after she invited them there one evening in February. The woman alleging that Miller became verbally abusive and only left after she called the police.
Variety reported that she filed a criminal complaint against Miller. But she dropped the case when it emerged they had left Germany.
Miller was also accused of sheltering teenage runaway Tokata Iron Eyes, whose parents filed a restraining order against the star.
Warner Brothers Confirms The Flash Release Date with Ezra Miller
However, despite these recent troubles with the law, Warner Bros. confirmed the film is still on track for a June 23, 2023, with Miller in tow.
Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said at the firm’s Q2 earnings call this week, “We have seen ‘The Flash,’ ‘Black Adam’ and ‘Shazam 2.'”
“We are very excited about them. We’ve seen them. We think they are terrific, and we think we can make them even better.” Zaslay continued.
Zaslav also spoke out to defend the studio’s decision to axe the $90 million Batgirl movie starring Leslie Grace as the titular superhero.
“We’re not going to launch a movie until it’s ready. We’re not going to launch a movie to make a quarter. And we’re not going to put a movie out unless we believe in it.” Zaslav adds.
