AceShowbiz - Warner Bros. Pictures has seemingly come to the conclusion that there is no saving Ezra Miller. Amid their escalating volatile and odd behavior, words are "The Flash" could be the actor's last DCEU movie.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav has several choices to pick with the completed movie. "He can pull back on heavily promoting the summer 2023 film, confining it to some P&A and no publicity tour. Or he can relegate it to streaming with HBO Max and take a write-down. Or lean in toward making the movie a hit and then drop Miller if they can't straighten things out," the site details.
The last option seems to be the most probable scenario as Warner Bros. is said to have tried getting help for Ezra, but their problems keep piling up. Even if no more allegations surface, the studio won't likely keep the 29-year-old in the Flash role in future DC films.
"There is no winning in this for Warner Bros," one studio source tells the news 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."
Most recently, Ezra faces two separate allegations of acting inappropriately toward a 12-year-old nonbinary child and grooming a teenage girl. Parents of the 18-year-old girl named Tokata Iron Eyes, who is "on the run," filed a protective order against the "Justice League" star earlier this month.
The concerned parents claimed Ezra groomed and brainwashed Tokata. "Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata," the filing read.
Tokata, however, has publicly defended Miller. "My comrade Ezra Miller ... has only provided loving support and invaluable protection throughout this period of loss," the teen said in a statement posted online. "I am now aware of the severity of emotional and psychological manipulation I was made to endure while in my parents home ... I am an adult and I deserve to feel authority in my own body," the teen continued.
Tokata also said in an Instagram video, "I'd like to say that it's nobody's business and nobody is owed a story. Or an outcome. This is my life. These are my decisions. And I'm disappointed in my parents and the press in every way. Thank you."
"The Flash" is currently slated to be released on June 23, 2023 in the United States.
