Although The Flash is slated for release in 2023 and received high ratings in test screenings (via THR), Ezra Miller’s future in the DC Universe is uncertain. With James Gunn and Peter Safran taking over DC, Wonder Woman 3 was canceled, Black Adam was shown the door, and Henry Cavill’s Superman retired. It’s surprising that The Flash survived the chopping block, but for Warner Bros. it is too expensive to be disposed of (per grade), even with Miller’s image issues.
Negative press has hounded Miller due to their erratic behavior and legal troubles since production of Fantastic Beasts: A Dumbledore Mystery was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Miller traveled to Iceland where they were filmed attacking a woman (through diversity). Miller was arrested in Hawaii later that month and then arrested for robbery in Vermont.
According to Vanity Fair, Miller was also accused of allegedly caring for minors and creating a sex cult. They were given restraining orders and threatened the Ku Klux Klan’s secession on social media. Miller’s erratic behavior, apparent paranoia, and gun obsession have led many to worry about the actor’s mental health and safety. In August 2022, Miller issued a statement Diversitystating that they are going through a mental health crisis and are seeking treatment, adding, “I want to apologize to everyone I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior.”
