Warner Bros. and DC executives held an emergency meeting on March 30 following the arrest of “The Flash” star Ezra Miller. Miller was arrested in Hawaii on March 28, 2022 for disorderly conduct and harassment.
“The Flash” star faced a temporary restraining order filed by a couple that claimed Miller stormed into their bedroom and threatened them.
According to a “knowledgeable source” close to RollingStone, the publication that initially reported on the meeting, a joint decision was made to pause any future projects with Miller, including possible appearances in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
Sources state that Miller has been going through major personal issues, citing struggles with mental health and other factors playing into his recent behavior.
The RollingStone insider stated that Miller had “frequent meltdowns” on the set of Warner Bros. upcoming superhero blockbuster “The Flash.” Miller didn’t display any violent outbursts, but they would become troubled resulting in them needing a break from production.
As of right now upcoming films featuring Miller, like “The Flash” and “Fantastic Beasts 3,” will remain on their premiere and production paths, but the performer’s future is unknown. Warner Bros. has over a year to make an ultimate final decision on the star’s role as Barry Allen / Flash in the DCEU.
