Ezra Miller Fired From The Flash After Controversies

Following a spate of legal squabbles, troubled actor Ezra Miller has allegedly been dismissed from his role as The Flash in Warner Bros and DC's superhero picture series.

The 29-year-old actor has played Barry Allen aka The Flash since 2016 when they first appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as the super speed hero.

The character is set to feature in spin-off film The Flash which will see the character take the centre stage - but the release has been dampened by Ezra’s recent legal woes.

The actor has been arrested twice in recent months in Hawaii on allegations of physical altercations with members of the public on the island, and they have also been accused of harassment by the parents of one young woman, and have a temporary harassment prevention order against them amid allegations involving a 12-year-old child.

Now reports have suggested Ezra will be fired from the DC cinematic universe once The Flash is released next year.

A source told Deadline: “There is no winning in this for Warner Bros.

“This is an inherited problem for [CEO David] Zaslav. 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.”

However the source added: “the studio won’t likely keep Miller in the Flash role in future DC films.

“That would mean replacing him in the future, but there is still a $200 million investment on the line with the first film and Warner Bros execs have to be cringing at each new press report.”
