The Flash star Ezra Miller’s future is in trouble at upcoming DC films with his recent arrest for disorderly conduct and harassment. According to Rolling Stone, WB and DC executives held an emergency impromptu meeting to discuss Ezra Miller’s future with DC films. They will reportedly hit pause on any future projects involving Miller.
According to the March 28 police report, Miller became agitated after patrons at a Hawaii bar began singing karaoke. Miller shouted obscenities and grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman as she was singing and allegedly lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts. The 29-year-old movie star was arrested and charged on both counts and was released on $500 bail. The incident took place at Margarita Village in Hilo, Hawaii, the day before Miller’s Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore castmates were celebrating that film’s world premiere in London.
Even more troubling, a local couple filed a temporary restraining order against Miller on March 29. The couple claimed that after his arrest, Miller burst into their bedroom and threatened them, with Miller saying to the man, “I will burry [sic] you and and your slut wife,” according to the report. The petition also alleges that Miller stole the woman’s passport and the man’s wallet, which included a social security card, driver’s license and bank cards. A judge granted a TRO the following day. The judge is expected to make a decision on whether or not to extend the restraining order by the end of the month.
Miller was never expected to attend the Fantastic Beasts premiere, according to a source, because the studio’s publicity preparations for the film were constrained due to contractual promotion commitments for The Flash. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore hit theaters in the U.S. on April 15.
