Following a string of arrests and other legal snafus in recent weeks, The Flash star Ezra Miller has apparently been detained again in Hawaii.
The 29-year-old actor has been involved in various scandals in Hawaii in less than a month. Miller was arrested by local police on March 27 for disorderly behavior and harassment. The Justice League star yelled obscenities and became enraged when people began to sing karaoke, but he also lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts.
Not long after, a Hawaiian couple issued Miller with a restraining order after he broke into their residence and threatened to murder them before stealing their stuff. However, as of April 12, the restraining order was lifted. Now The Flash’s actor has reportedly once again become entangled with local police.
Miller was arrested by police on Hawaii Island on Tuesday morning, according to a new report from Hawaii News Now. Miller was also detained on a charge of second-degree assault, according to KITV Island News. The report was corroborated by the Hawaii Police Department, which also provided details on Miller’s arrest.
Miller reportedly created a tense situation after being asked to leave a party at a private property in Lower Puna about 1 a.m. It resulted in the actor hurling a chair, injuring a 26-year-old woman on the forehead, resulting in a half-inch wound. The woman has refused medical treatment for her injury.
Miller and his representatives did not respond to these reports, nor have they commented on any of the previous situations in the last few weeks. Miller’s future on The Flash is now unknown, and there have been reports that Warner Bros. and DC Films conducted an emergency meeting in light of the legal difficulties.
After having its November 4 release date moved again to June 23, 2023, the Flash movie wrapped filming in late 2021 and is currently in post-production. Miller also returned to the character of Credence Barebone/Aurelius Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore despite his legal troubles.
Miller was one of the original cast members for the planned Justice League when Warner Bros. released their first news for a DCEU back in October 2014. While Grant Gustin continues to play the Scarlet Speedster on The CW’s The Flash, Miller has been cast as the character’s first big-screen adaptation.
Miller’s involvement in a potential Fantastic Beasts 4 sequel is yet to be determined. If Warner Bros. is shrewd, they may wait until the outcomes of Miller’s future hearings are known before deciding what to do with the actor, The Flash franchise, and the character’s status in the DCEU.
The guys at Midnight’s Edge report on what they’ve been hearing from insiders familiar with the situation.
And that video was recorded BEFORE the latest arrest. They had a longer roundtable discussion about the most recent arrest yesterday. You can listen to it here. They also surmise that this most recent arrest will likely have very serious ramifications for Ezra’s career now that a new administration is in charge at DC and Warner Bros. after Discovery just took over.
