Ezra Miller’s role as the fastest superhero in the DC Extended Universe may come to an end following the release of the upcoming movie “The Flash.”
The actor, who identifies as nonbinary, has found themself at the center of several scandalous stories due to their erratic behavior. The recent scandals have reportedly caused Warner Bros Discovery to rethink Miller’s future with the movie franchise.
Sources told Deadline that even if Miller managed to stay out of trouble, the studio would most likely replace the actor’s role as the Flash in future films.
However, recasting the role of Barry Allen won’t help Warner Bros. with its current problem regarding the upcoming 2023 release of “The Flash.”
Since the studio invested $200 million into the movie, Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav must decide what to do with the completed film starring Miller.
“There is no winning in this for Warner Bros,” a studio insider told the outlet. “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.”
In the last two weeks, Miller has made headlines after the parents of two different individuals accused the 29-year-old actor of inappropriate behavior.
Most recently, the mother of a 12-year-old in Greenfield, MA was reportedly granted a temporary harassment prevention order after claiming the actor made improper gestures toward her child, who identified as nonbinary.
Last week, the parents of an 18-year-old named Tokata Iron Eyes requested a restraining order against the actor for brainwashing and grooming their child.
“Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata,” the paperwork stated.
Amid the scandal, Warner Bros has yet to publicly comment on Miller’s controversial behavior and his future in “The Flash” movie franchise.
