20 Jun – It looks like Ezra Miller might not be reprising his role as the DC superhero The Flash in future films.
According to Deadline, sources are saying that Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav is currently having to deal with his first movie crisis involving the actor, whose multiple problems with the authorities are now ruining the studio's plan to expand the DC Universe.
"There is no winning in this for 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," said a source.
It is noted that Miller has been making headlines for all the wrong things for the past few months, from being arrested twice for a bar fight in March and second-degree assault in April, to getting a temporary harassment prevention order from the mother of a 12-year-old, and another order of protection from parents of an 18-year-old girl, alleging that he was grooming their children.
Reportedly, the studio has had enough of Miller, and that even if there are no more allegations against the actor, Warner Bros will not keep him around.
The studio is already facing several issues with its big franchises, from the lacklustre reception of the latest "Fantastic Beasts" movie, to the ongoing boycott of Amber Heard, who reprises her role as Mera in "Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom".
