Despite increasing allegations against the star of The Flash, Warner Bros. is staying committed to Ezra Miller’s upcoming superhero movie.
A new exposé by Variety is revealing even more shocking details about the embattled actor’s behavior while living in Iceland and Germany and is casting more doubt on whether the studio's long-awaited Flash movie will see a theatrical release.
However, according to Warner Bros., there is no doubt, and the film will definitely see a wide release in theaters. According to sources, the film cost too much money and the only hope of turning a profit will come from a “robust theatrical run.” Whether fans will contribute to that run remains a separate question.
The exposé reveals new details about several altercations Miller has been involved with over the past several years.
One woman, known only as Nadia in the article, said that she had a two-year relationship with Miller that suddenly turned sour when she asked the star to not smoke in her house.
“That just set them off. I asked them to leave about 20 times, maybe more. They started insulting me,” she said. “I’m a ‘transphobic piece of sh*t.’ I’m a ‘nazi.’ It became so, so stressful for me. They were going around my house, looking at everything, touching everything, spreading tobacco leaves on the floor. It felt disgusting and very intrusive.”
“I asked them if they remember I told them I’m a descendant of Holocaust survivors, so why would they say that to me?” she said. “They answered, screaming at me, ‘Yes, but how many people of my family died?’ Because many people in their family died. I was like, Oh, OK, this is a game of who’s got the most trauma.”
Miller eventually left when Nadia called the police. However, thirty minutes later, they returned, seemingly trying to break down the door to the apartment building and screaming that Nadia had stolen their passport and money. She discovered Miller had left a jacket behind in her apartment and threw it down to them from her balcony.
Miller’s troubles are also extending to accusations from parents. The parents of a now-18-year-old from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North and South Dakota claim that Miller manipulated their child, who is nonbinary, from ages 12-18.
They allege that Miller gave their underage child alcohol, marijuana, and LSD and that the nonbinary influenced their child’s decision to come out as nonbinary. Obviously, the latter accusation paints all the parents’ accusations with the possibility of transphobia being the motivator.
Additionally, an Instagram from the alleged victim has been posting that their parents are in fact the ones lying, and that Miller did not harm them.
Another story, this one from Rolling Stone, alleged that Miller has been housing a mother and three young children at their Vermont Farm in unsafe conditions that involve unsecured guns and ammunition laying around the property.
Right now, Warner Bros. still has The Flash on their major release calendar for June 2023. Whether any of these accusations turn into something more, and whether or not the film does come out, remains to be seen.
