Fans are very excited about the release of Warner Bros.’s upcoming movie, The Flash. However, it’s safe to say that most fans are excited to see Michael Keaton’s Batman and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl and the hype for Ezra Miller is next to nothing. The star had a remarkable career, however, it was overshadowed by their public controversies.
As per sources, Ezra Miller will make an appearance at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on June 12, but will not give any interviews, only pose for pictures. This has invited a lot of criticism and fans even compared the situation to Will Smith, who was under scrutiny for slapping Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards in 2022.
Ezra Miller is all set to make an appearance at The Flash‘s LA premiere
As we approach The Flash‘s release date, the anticipation is quite high. It has been revealed that the star of the movie, Ezra Miller will make an appearance at the film’s Los Angeles premiere, however, they will keep a low profile and avoid giving any interviews. A source close to Miller has stated,
“Ezra wants the movie to open and the conversation to be about the movie and not about Ezra. They are focused on their mental health and don’t want it to be transactional.”
Sources have also confirmed that this is the last time Miller will be playing Flash/Barry Allen on-screen.
People on social media gave their opinion
The fans were not happy after the announcement as many petitions were signed requesting Warner Bros to remove Miller from the film. Some users also compared it to Will Smith’s controversy. The actor is currently banned from attending the Academy Awards because he slapped comedian Chris Rock on stage in 2022.
Will Smith got banned from the Oscars for 10 years and didn’t do a fraction of the shit Ezra Miller did. lol https://t.co/rLiLPCHmrH

Yeah the “free-pass” Miller is getting is disgusting. They sound like a really toxic and dangerous person and the fact that people are overlooking that because Miller is a talented actor is just really shocking and disheartening.

literally no accountability all for the sake of damage control to an already broken franchise, the DCEU

Many people argued that Will Smith deserved the ban because he slapped Chris Rock during the event, as millions were watching.
What did Ezra Miller do?
Ezra Miller’s woes began back in April 2020 when a video of them choking a woman at a bar in Reykjavik, Iceland surfaced on social media. In March 2022, the star was arrested in Hawaii and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment over their alleged involvement in two separate incidents that took place at a karaoke bar. Then in April 2022, Miller was arrested and charged with second-degree assault after they allegedly threw a chair at a woman.
In June 2022, Chase Iron Eyes and Sara Jumping Eagle claimed in the court that Miller had been manipulating and controlling their daughter Tokata Iron Eyes. Shortly after that, a woman from Greenfield, Massachusetts, and her child were granted a temporary harassment prevention order against Miller due to a disturbing incident where Miller “acted inappropriately toward” the minor.
In August 2022, Miller was accused of burglarizing a home in Vermont and housing a woman and her three kids at their farm filled with guns. It’s safe to say that the star’s future in Hollywood isn’t too bright.
