For Warner Bros., Ezra Miller introduces a $200 million issue. The Flash, a superhero film starring Miller dressed in spandex, had a budget of that amount. The DC comics’ huge bet against Disney’s world-conquering Marvel films, such as The Avengers trilogy, and Spider-Man, will be released next summer.
The only issue is that their lead actor has been associated with a number of scandals, ranging from hosting a woman and her children on a Vermont farm where it has been said that there are firearms nearby to two recent arrests in Hawaii.
The first incident occurred on March 27 at a dive bar when Miller allegedly grabbed a microphone away from a woman doing karaoke, according to police. An enraged Miller allegedly lunged at a man playing darts and yelled profanities after that, prompting police to intervene.
A month later, after being asked to leave a meeting, Miller allegedly flung a chair, striking a woman and leaving her with a half-inch gash on her forehead. Later that evening, after Miller allegedly broke into their bedroom and threatened to “bury” them, a couple obtained a restraining order against him. Miller received 10 police calls in the peaceful Hawaiian town of Hilo in only three weeks.
Before becoming a franchise celebrity in JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the DC universe, Miller was the darling of the independent film thanks to performances in Afterschool and We Need to Talk About Kevin. By coming out as queer in 2012 and as non-binary in 2018, they established themselves as an advocate for the LGBT+ community, saying: “I don’t identify as a man, I don’t identify as a woman. I hardly recognize myself as a human.
Miller was slated to play the lead role in The Flash, making him the first openly gay actor to star in a superhero film, but that is now in doubt. Warner Bros. reportedly sought to “find help” for Miller, but it currently seems unlikely that they will be retained for more projects, according to Deadline. After all, this is the same production company that fired Johnny Depp following his unsuccessful UK lawsuit against The Sun.
Ezra Miller was born in 1992 to a prosperous family in New Jersey; their mother was a dancer and their father was a successful publisher. Miller started singing opera in order to get over a childhood stutter, making her stage debut in 2001 at the Lincoln Center’s New York premiere of Philip Glass’s White Raven.
Miller nevertheless experienced homophobic bullying in high school. Miller confessed to Out in 2012, “I was attempting to kiss males in school.” I transitioned from stammering to being a gay child opera singer to being, “like, a really confused queer adolescent.”
At the age of 16, Miller left high school due to Beethoven rather than bullying. According to the actor, the composer appeared to them in a dream and stated, “The four symphonies I’ve composed are no good. They simply aren’t enough. You write five more, I told you. Never give up! And I suddenly realized I needed to drop out of school as I awoke in a cold sweat.
It didn’t involve a complete leap of faith. Miller made their first appearance on the big screen in Antonio Campos’ gloomy directorial debut Afterschool in 2008 after having already starred in a number of TV shorts.
Miller plays Ellen Barkin’s conceited adolescent son in the 2011 film Another Happy Day, directed by Sam Levinson, who also wrote the screenplay for Euphoria. When Levinson was casting the movie, Miller arrived late and insisted on sitting outdoors so he could smoke. What a f***ing prick, I thought. The director said, “He’s ideal for this picture.”
Miller, who starred as the title character in the 2011 film We Need to Talk About Kevin, a remake of Lionel Shriver’s novel about a young person on a mission to kill their mother, discovered their niche as an eccentric, talkative youngster. After that, they were cast opposite Emma Watson in the well-liked adaption of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
At that point, Miller started appearing in the news for the wrong reasons. The actor was detained by authorities while filming…Perks after being stopped by officers for a broken taillight and discovered, in Miller’s words, “neath a quilt” of marijuana.
When Miller was cast as Credence in Fantastic Beasts and The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he gained widespread notoriety. Then strange videos of the actor started to appear. Miller would alternate between emotive piano performances of Rihanna’s “Work” in hotel lobbies and illegible red carpet interviews with Toadette from Mario Kart.
They unexpectedly kissed a fan on the mouth during a 2017 Comic-Con event after the fan-requested to smell Miller’s breath for alcohol. Although confusing, it wasn’t very alarming. That was the case up until 2020 when a video that claimed to show Miller choking a woman at a Reykjavik pub surfaced on Twitter.
After remaining silent for two years, the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, recently told Variety, “I assume it’s all fun and games — but suddenly it wasn’t.” The actor was never subject to any legal action. Miller remained silent about the incident in public.
Then, at the start of this year, Miller went on a social media tirade, demanding the North Carolina-based “Beulaville chapter” of the Ku Klux Klan to “kill themselves.” There has been no reported Klan activity in the region, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization that tracks hate groups. Then the incidents in Hawaii happened.
