DC Reportedly Pauses Flash Actor Ezra Miller's Projects Following Arrest

Rolling Stone reports that Miller's involvement with the DCEU is currently being reconsidered.


Multiple Ezra Miller projects--and the actor's future with Warner Bros. and DC--are reportedly in jeopardy following a number of recent incidents, including the star's arrest for disorderly conduct and harassment. According to Rolling Stone, the companies' executives held an emergency meeting on March 30.

On March 29, Miller reportedly had a temporary restraining order placed against them by a couple that claimed they stormed into their bedroom and threatened them. Miller also allegedly engaged in other illicit activities, and is accused of stealing a passport and a wallet that included a social security card, driver’s license, and bank cards. None of these seem to be isolated incidents, as Page Six is also reporting that Miller "was the subject of 10 police calls in less than a month."

As of this writing, Miller is set to appear as the titular character in The Flash, which is slated for release in 2023. But as Rolling Stone reports, both Warner Bros. and DC are reportedly pausing any future projects involving the actor--which also includes further possible appearances in the DC Cinematic Universe.

These recent developments also cast an unfortunate shadow over The Flash. The film was, among many other reasons, drawing lots of attention for it excitingly featuring the return of Michael Keaton as Batman. The Flash is expected to hit theaters on June 23, 2023.

Miller will next be seen in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which is due to hit theaters on April 15.
