Ezra Miller to be replaced as The Flash in future D.C. films

Ezra Miller as Flash

Warner Bros. is reportedly ready to drop Ezra Miller from future DC comic movies amidst controversies surrounding The Flash actor.

The reports follow a string of disturbing accusations, including predatory and violent activity. On June 15, a Massachusetts judge granted a temporary protection order forbidding the 29-year-old actor from contacting a teenaged girl and her mother after violent outbursts and stalking incidents.

Only days prior, Chase Iron Eyes and Sara Jumping Eagle, the parents of environmental activist Tokata Iron Eyes, were also granted a protection order against Miller on behalf of their daughter. The parents claim the relationship began during the 2016 Dakota Access Pipeline protests when Miller was 23 and Iron Eyes just 12.

The parents allege that Miller used "violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata." While Miller deactivated their social media, Tokata has released statements defending Miller, rejecting the need for a protection order. Despite being 18, Tokata's parents are still her legal guardians according to tribal regulations.

Though signed by a judge, the order has yet to be served as authorities cannot locate Miller -- whom they believe to be on the run with Tokata.

Other headlines involving the actor include getting arrested twice in Hawaii earlier this year. In March, Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment after becoming violent with patrons at a karaoke bar. The following month, The Hawaii Police Department arrested Miller for second-degree assault after the actor reportedly threw a chair at a woman, resulting in an approximate half-inch cut on her forehead.

While no official action has been taken, Deadline sources report, “Even if no more allegations surface, the studio won’t likely keep Miller in the Flash role in future DC films.”

Although Miller will likely be dropped from future D.C. projects, it is unclear how the studio will handle the release of the $200-million movie on June 23, 2023, as the actor continues to rake in bad press.

"There is no winning in this for Warner Bros.," one studio source told Deadline. "The hope is that the scandal will remain at a low level before the movie is released, and hope for the best to turn out."

Neither Warner Bros. nor Ezra Miller's representation has publicly addressed the actor's legal trouble or their future in the D.C. movie franchise. ~Megan Parsons

    Too bad after all that investment they find out he's a pervert. They definitely should not release The Flash movie with him in it. They should delay the release and reshoot his scenes with a different actor.

    Typical contemporary western snowflake society ousting men over a woman over mere allegations, even with a solid alibi. First Johnny Depp and now Ezra Miller. What has this world come to?

    I almost feel bad for WB at this stage.. The DCEU is a flaming tire fire of bad decisions at this stage between Snyder, Heard and now Miller. I remember thinking they should have just cast Gustin for Flash in the movies and I'm guessing they kind of wished that now too!

    Sad that he is screwing up a Steller career.

    Allegations @ Tom LOL He was on video choking someone! Did you see the arrest video too! He is a loonie! Ezra Miller is no Johnny Depp! I heard Louis CK is next to play the Flash in future DC films! :)

    Tom you are an idiot. This Behavior has gone on for Ezra for a long time. Why don't you search for a history of all his violence. You're such a snowflake.

    @Tom: Nice freaking try. Don't try to tack Ezra onto Johnny Depp! Unlike JD, Ezra is *on film* choking a fan. Not choking a lamp or something - but choking an actual human being. Also unlike JD, Ezra has been arrested multiple times now for violence against others. Again, this is not against, say.. cupboards, but against actual people. Also unlike with JD, multiple people have called Ezra out on claims of harassment. The two situations are not even remotely parallel, and people don't get to tack their favourite low-life into JD successful fight to prove his innocence. What JD's case does do, is give a sliver of hope to other abused men that they might be able to come forward and have their claims taken seriously. And hope as well to other men or who, like JD, *are not* historical, serial abusers; that they might, just maybe, actually be given the presumption of innocence, if and only if and but until such time as they are doing fullyattend a chance to successfully fight to

    Corrections: "And hope as well to other men *who, like JD, *are not* historical, serial abusers; that they might, just maybe, actually be given the presumption of innocence, and to be deemed guilty; if, and only if, and *not until such time as; they are proven to have done what they are accused of.
