A Warner Bros. statement denies the latest report that the studio held a meeting to discuss the future of The Flash star Ezra Miller in the DCEU.

Press leaks that Warner Bros. supported the sidelining of The Flash star Ezra Miller in the DC Extended Universe appear to have been greatly exaggerated.

A Warner Bros. executive told IGN that the meeting in question never took place, and also denied claims that Miller’s future in the DCEU is currently in jeopardy.

Since Ezra Miller was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment , Late March 2022, after an incident in a bar in Hawaii, where he ripped the microphone of a woman who was singing karaoke and threw himself at a man who was playing darts. Shortly thereafter, the Flash star was served with a restraining order after a couple claimed he threatened to kill them before stealing a wallet, social security card, passport, etc.

Additionally, it was recently reported that in light of these recent events, Warner Bros. held an emergency meeting to discuss Miller’s future with the studio, as he not only plays Barry Allen/The Flash but also Credence Barebone in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The same report suggested that Miller had frequent outbursts on the set of The Flash, which wrapped production in October 2021 after a long shoot.

These are not the only troubling incidents of Miller, with Hawai. In April 2020, just before filming began on The Flash, the actor was spotted grabbing a female fan by the throat outside a bar in Iceland. More recently, Miller released a video encouraging Ku Klux Klan members to commit suicide before threatening to do it for them.

It’s been a rocky road to seeing The Flash in theaters.

Screenwriters Phil Lord and Chris Miller signed on to write the story in 2015, while Seth Grahame-Smith was chosen to write and direct. The latter left the project in 2016 and was replaced by Rick Famuyiwa, who also left the project the following year due to creative differences. Warner Bros. then commissioned a rewrite of the script from Joby Harold, and in 2018 John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were announced as the new directors.

After another reshuffle, Andy Muschietti was named the new director in August 2020, and production began in April 2021. However, even with Muschietti on board, The Flash has faced a few setbacks, the most recent of which occurred in July when filming was halted due to an accident while filming a stunt with a Batcycle.
