At the end of March, we learned of the recent arrest of Ezra Miller in Hawaii, due to his violent behavior at a karaoke bar. According to reports, the celebrity began shouting obscenities in the establishment and even pounced on a client who was playing darts. This led to his arrest—for felony harassment and disorderly conduct—and a $500 bond. But the matter did not end there, as a couple also raised a restraining order against him, alleging that Miller threatened to kill them in his hotel room.
That said, there are plenty of reasons for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC to prefer to get rid of any contract with the star. Executives from both brands have already held an emergency meeting to find out how to deal with the “Ezra Miller” problem. And according to rolling stonea well-informed source asserted that the companies agreed “putting a pause on any future projects involving Miller, including his potential appearances in the DC Cinematic Universe” (via).
Extremely difficult decision and colossal inconvenience for the DCEU. At the end of the day, we’re talking about who has played Barry Allen/Flash in the DCEU since his cameo in batman v superman and its star in League of Justice. To top it off, she stars in the upcoming Scarlet Runner solo film, a project that aims to refresh the franchise with the endless possibilities of the multiverse. And of course, anyone would think that to succeed at the box office, Flash would lead to a sequel. However, the saga may already be dead before it was born.
the same source of rolling stone revealed that Ezra Miller would have suffered “frequent crises” during the filming of that tape in 2021. On the other hand, it is not the first time that the celebrity lies on the verge of cancellation. In 2020, a viralized video captured him assaulting a woman in a bar in Iceland. This did not lead to any legal action against her, but it did lead to countless angry social media users demanding her dismissal from any film project.
The day after Ezra Miller’s arrest, the London premiere of Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets, where he personifies the disturbed magician Credence Barebone. Obviously, the 29-year-old star couldn’t walk the red carpet.
Dumbledore’s secrets, from director David Yates, will hit theaters on April 14. For its part, Flashunder the direction of Andy Muschietti, will hit the big screen on June 23, 2023.
The entry Ezra Miller’s future at Warners in doubt after his arrest was first published in Cine PREMIERE.
