The Flash’s Ezra Miller Might Be No Longer Part of DCEU
The Flash’s Ezra Miller went viral for the last couple of months for the wrong reasons. And the most recent issue they faced appears to be the nail in the coffin for their future in the DCEU.
After multiple setbacks, Warner Bros. has settled on a premiere date for The Flash movie. In that film, Ezra Miller will reprise their role as the scarlet speedster. They first portrayed in a cameo role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.
Warner Bros. cuts The Flash’s Ezra Miller from future DCEU films
In a report made by Deadline, it appears Ezra Miller’s connection with Warner Bros. will finally end. Sources say, that Warner Bros. Discover CEO David Zaslav does not want to get involved with Miller anymore.
One of the report’s sources claims that Miller’s current issues have brought the company to the losing end.
“There is no winning in this for the Warner Bros. This is an inherited problem for Zaslav. The hope is that the scandal will remain at a low level before the movie is released, and hope for the best to turn out.”
Clearly, everything that Miller has done over the past months has shaken Warner Bros.’ plans of expanding their DCEU franchise. And based on the buzz around the topic, it appears that the company has no plans of getting The Flash’s Ezra Miller on future DC films.
Now that Miller’s future in the DC Universe seems to be settled, that is not the case for The Flash movie. As of writing, Zaslav has yet to decide what the studio will do with the upcoming 2023 film.
The major problem the studios will face is how they’ll promote the superhero film with a heavily problematic lead actor. The studio’s CEO has various options on this matter.
For one, he can recast The Flash‘s Ezra Miller, but this course of action will ultimately lose him a lot of money for production and reshoots. He can also choose to premiere the film on a streaming platform rather than making it hit the cinemas.
Either way, Miller’s future in the DCEU will end in The Flash‘s premiere. And how they’ll promote the film is a mystery to all.
New accusations about the actor rose anew
The Flash‘s Ezra Miller founds himself in yet another issue. A couple of weeks ago, The Daily Beast reported the new predicament the actor placed himself in. The headlines read that a mother and her 12-year-old child have filed a temporary harassment prevention order against Miller. The actor allegedly menaced the family and made inappropriate gestures toward the child.
Last week another incident arose as the parents of an 18-year-old teen have asked a judge to issue a restraining order against the actor. The family claims that Miller has groomed and brainwashed their child, Tokata Iron Eyes.
A snippet of the filing reads, “Ezra uses violence, intimidation, the threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata.”
According to the family, the two met at Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota when Tokata was just 12 years old. Since then, the parents claim that Miller has given Tokata drugs and alcohol and flew the child to different places without their permission.
In light of this news, Miller took to their Instagram account to post cryptic and disturbing stories. The stories they posted seem to mock the authorities about their situation. They later on, deleted their Instagram account.
To make things more complicated, Tokata posted a two-minute video on Instagram to defend the actor. Tokata says that “This is my life and these are my decisions and I’m disappointed in my parents and the press — in every way.”
Prior to these new allegations against The Flash‘s Ezra Miller, they was also arrested twice in Hawaii. Then a couple of weeks later, authorities arrested them for second-degree assault.
The Flash will premiere on June 23, 2023.
