In recent months, Ezra Miller has been making headlines for reasons not strictly artistic. The actor who plays the role of The Flash in the DC cinematic universe is accused of various crimes committed in Hawaii ranging from assault to solicitation by administering marijuana and alcohol to a minor on whom he would also have used violence.
In recent days, the actor has gone into hiding with the girl and the authorities have issued a restraining order against him.
After a series of strange posts published on his social networks in which Ezra Miller claimed to be ” in another universe “, the actor has eliminated all his social profiles and has, in all respects, become unavailable.
Warner Bros. has been following Ezra Miller‘s legal disputes with concern for many months and, as reported by Deadline, is still undecided on how to organize the launch of The Flash, a film that sees the actor as the protagonist.

For now, the only thing that seems certain is that the film will be released, but how the film will be distributed are still to be defined. The leaders of WB hope that the waters will calm down before the release of the film, scheduled for 2023. It seems clear, however, that after this controversial story Ezra Miller will no longer be part of the future projects of the DC Extended Universe.
The Flash, which cost $ 200 million, risks turning out to be a failure due to the actor’s personal stories and it is clear that, by now, Ezra Miller is no longer manageable and therefore uncomfortable for giants like Waner Bros. and DC.
An internal source of Warner Bros., regarding the affair, has stated:
There is no victory in this for Warner Bros. This is an inherited problem for David Zaslav [CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, ed]. The hope is that the scandal will remain at a low level before the release of the film and we hope that the best will be resolved. “
