Hollywood star Ezra Miller‘s career could be in jeopardy. The actor was recently arrested in Hawaii, following an incident. Although he was promptly bailed out, his problems didn’t end there. A slew of bad press, coupled with some angry fans calling for his removal as The Flash, may put his career in trouble. We take a look at the projects affected by his recent arrest.
Why was Ezra Miller Arrested?
The Flash star was arrested on March 28th for disorderly conduct and harassment.
The incident happened at a local karaoke bar. There, the actor yelled obscenities at visitors singing karaoke. They then, reportedly, took hold of a microphone from a 23-year-old woman who was singing. This was not all, Miller later lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.
Ezra Miller Projects Affected By His Recent Arrest
The arrest and the ensuing bad press have put into question the actor’s future career. He has faced some backlash on social media. However, up till now, no decision/ announcement has been made regarding Miller’s projects.
The star has a couple of big projects lined up in the near future. Let’s take a closer look at them.
Ezra Miller as The Flash
Miller has played the role of the Flash in three DC films. They now lead the solo movie, The Flash, which hits the screens next year. This is an important project, not only for Miller but also for DC. This is because the film has major box office potential, considering Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton would also feature in the film as their versions of the Batman. However, following the arrest, there have been calls for recasting The Flash. Although, nothing definitive has happened yet.
Ezra Miller in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore
Another huge film, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, has Miller in an important role. In it, they play the role of Credence Barebone. Barebone, in the previous film of the franchise, was revealed to be Aurelius Dumbledore, a sibling of Albus Dumbledore. The film releases on the 15th of April 2022 in the United States. Bad press with regard to one of their lead actors just before the release of a major movie is not good news for Warner Bros.
