What does this mean for their future in the DCEU?

Updated with a statement from Miller's attorney.

Is Ezra Miller's turbulent year coming to an end?

According to a new report from Deadline, the embattled The Flash star has entered a plea deal ahead of their upcoming burglary trial in Vermont.

While Miller had originally pleaded not guilty to felony burglary charges, they have now entered a guilty plea to the lesser charge of trespassing.

Miller was accused of breaking into a neighbor's house and stealing three bottles of alcohol in the summer of 2022. They had previously been arrested in Hawaii for disorderly conduct and harassment.

Miller will be forced to pay a $500 fine and serve one year on administrative probation, according to Deadline.

Miller's attorney Lisa Shelkrot made a statement on behalf of the actor on January 13 after the judge accepted their guilty plea.

"Ezra Miller pled guilty this morning to a misdemeanor unlawful trespass in Vermont Superior Court and accepted the conditions imposed by the court. Ezra would like to thank the court and the community for their trust and patience throughout this process, and would once again like to acknowledge the love and support they have received from their family and friends, who continue to be a vital presence in their ongoing mental health."

While at one point it seemed certain that Miller would be fired from his role as The Flash, things aren't so clear anymore. Last fall Miller issued a public apology and reportedly had a positive meeting with the Warner Bros. executive chairs where they apologized again. And now with James Gunn and Peter Safran taking over the DCEU, a lot of decisions are up in the air.

"Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment," Miller said in a statement apologizing for their behavior. "I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe, and productive stage in my life."

It's currently unknown if Miller's version of The Flash would return at all in the new Gunn and Safran-led DCEU, but this news certainly makes it more likely.

The Flash comes out in theaters on June 16 and is getting positive reviews from critics who have seen early cuts of the movie.
