Ezra Miller’s DCEU future is reportedly in question following recent events

The Flash, Ezra Miler, DCEU future, arrest

Take a knee, Will Smith, and let Ezra Miller have the spotlight for a moment. A new report from Rolling Stone claims that Warner Bros. and DC executives held an emergency meeting to discuss Ezra Miller’s DCEU future with the studio following the star’s recent arrest for disorderly conduct and harassment.

According to a source close to the situation, the studio is holding off on any future projects involving Miller, including possible appearances in the DC Cinematic Universe. Concerning the studio, WB has at least a year to decide Miller’s future with the studio before greenlighting a sequel to The Flash.


According to police, Miller was at the bar when they “became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke.” Apparently, they didn’t like their song choices because they then “began yelling obscenities and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke…and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.” After the incident, Miller was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment. They were released after they posted a $500 bond. You can read the full statement from the Hawaii Police Department below:

“Shortly after midnight on Monday, March 28, 2022, a 29-year-old man visiting from Vermont was arrested and charged for disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a bar in Hilo. On Sunday, March 27, at 11:30 p.m., South Hilo patrol officers responded to a report of disorderly patron at a bar on Silva Street. During the course of their investigation, police determined that the man, later identified as Ezra Miller, became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke. Miller began yelling obscenities and at one point grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman singing karaoke (disorderly conduct offense) and later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts (harassment offense). The bar owner asked Miller to calm down several times to no avail.
Miller was arrested and charged on both offenses and total bail was set at $500. They provided the bail, and was released.”

This isn’t the first time that Miller has had a brush with Johnny Law. Back in 2020, footage appeared online that depicted Miller choking a woman in a bar in Iceland. Those close to the situation described it as a serious altercation that led to Miller being escorted off the premises by staff.

Lastly, Miller posted a since-deleted video on Instagram that threatened a North Carolina chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. In the video, Miller told members of the hate group to kill themselves with their own guns, otherwise “we’ll do it for you if that’s what you want.”

To say that Miller is a colorful character would be an understatement, and I am not surprised that WB is questioning their involvement in future projects. As it stands, Miller filmed Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and The Flash back-to-back. Is this the last we’ll see of them concerning doing business with WB? Only time will tell, I suppose.
