Will the studios take action against this Flash actor?
According to a Rolling Stone report, Warner Bros and DC Comics announced an “emergency meeting” to discuss Ezra Miller’s recent arrest in Hawaii. The actor is known for their roles in the Fantastic Beasts franchise and several DC films, including Justice League: Suicide Squad. Miller will star in the superhero’s standalone film, The Flash, scheduled for release in June 2023.
What Happened at the Bar
But the 29-year-old’s actions at a karaoke bar may have put their career on pause. According to Hawaii News Now, Miller was allegedly “yelling obscenities and became agitated when people began singing karaoke.” They reportedly snatched a microphone from one of the singers and later lunged at a man playing darts. Though the bar owner urged Miller to calm down, Hawaiian County police took the actor into custody.
The couple involved has filed for a restraining order against Miller. Miller allegedly threatened the couple once released on bail and stole personal and financial items from them.
While nothing is official yet, a source told Rolling Stone that the studios have “hit pause on any future projects involving Miller, including possible appearances in the DC Extended Universe.” However, another source from the studio denied an emergency meeting took place.
Miller’s Controversial History
This is not Miller’s first time in the hot seat after displaying disorderly conduct in a public space. They were caught on video reportedly choking a woman back in 2020. Neither Miller nor the studios issued a response regarding this incident.
