He and his difficulties had dragged the company down.
Warnes Bros. is now slowly taking action in response to Ezra Miller’s multiple legal issues, which grabbed headlines and put the “Flash” films in jeopardy. The company wants the actor out of the picture, so they may now ultimately say goodbye to their iconic DC character.
Since Miller has been mired in one issue after another, making it difficult for them to justify their problematic behavior off-screen, “The Flash” has become Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav’s headache.
“There is no winning in this for Warner Bros,” a studio source told Deadline. “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.”
Even if no new claims emerge, the studio is unlikely to keep the actor in the Flash role in future DC projects. “That would mean replacing him in the future, but there is still a $200 million investment on the line with the first film and Warner Bros execs have to be cringing at each new press report,” the source added.
Miller was first detained in March in Hilo, Hawaii, following an incident in which they allegedly swore at visitors, disrupted a woman’s karaoke session, and ran at a man playing darts.
The second incident occurred in April, when they were arrested for second-degree assault at a Pahoa home after reportedly hurling a chair at a woman, leaving a “half-inch cut to her forehead.”
Furthermore, during their arrest in Hawaii, the actor was observed acting aggressively toward police officers and making the strange claim that they were recording themselves being assaulted for the purpose of art, and even using their 9th and 4th amendment rights to avoid being arrested.
Recently, they were accused of something new but this time, grooming a teenage girl and her parents claimed that Miller provided her with alcohol, marijuana, and LSD at the time.
