Flash’s Ezra Miller controversy escalates with disturbing new abuse details

Warner Bros. is currently deep in the neck in another round of controversy thanks to the evolving situation surrounding Ezra Miller, the leading star of The flash within the DCEU. Over the past few years, while their solo movie has been delayed one after another, Miller has been in the headlines for abuse and harassment allegations, which is just the beginning of the problems.

The issues seemingly became public when Miller appeared to strangle a fan in a bar in Iceland, which happened in April 2020 and was all caught on video by a bystander who shared the incident online. More recently, Miller was arrested on two separate occasions on charges of harassment in Hawaii, raising serious concerns about whether they would be a viable option to remain in the DCEU altogether.

Of The flash still more than a year away from release, Warner Bros. some tough choices to make with the future of the DCEU, especially since Miller is one of the few original actors left. Now that situation has become even more difficult thanks to new details that have come out about some of Miller’s latest abuse allegations.

Ezra Miller Incident Details Become Public

Variety revealed details regarding the abuse allegations surrounding The flash star Ezra Miller thanks to conversations with a number of victims and witnesses to various alleged actions of the actor. Carlos Reynir was a bartender at a pub in Reykjavík, Iceland, where Miller was seen on camera choking a woman in public.

Reynir noted two separate incidents involving Miller, one of which started as playful banter before Miller strangled and punched him. Reynir jumped in to break off the fight, but Miller was allowed to return to the bar after apologizing to the man the altercation took place with.

The second incident was much harder to ignore after Miller choked a woman in another bar, with Reynir noting that “There was always something about Ezra.”

Variety then spoke to the woman involved in the incident, though she remained anonymous for privacy reasons.

Miller reportedly asked, “Do you want to fight? Is that what you do?” as they approached each other, with the person filming the video jumping in to intervene after Miller grabbed her by the neck.

The woman had asked about Miller’s feet after noticing some wounds on him, but when she walked away after the explanation and joked, “But just to know, I could take you in a fight.” Miller Miller then replied: “Do you really want to fight?” before saying to meet him in a smoking area shortly afterwards.

The woman thought it was just a joke, but then Miller jumped on her and started choking her, yelling at her that she was actually fighting as her boyfriend started filming what happened:

“I think it’s just fun and games, but it wasn’t. Suddenly, [they’re] on top of me, choking me, still screaming in my face if I want to fight. My friend who is filming sees [they’re] clearly not kidding and it’s actually serious so he stops filming and pushes [them] off me [they’re] still trying to fight me. Two male friends of mine are actually holding [Miller] back as [they’re] yelling, ‘This is what you wanted! This is what you wanted!’”

The woman noticed that Miller had spit in her boyfriend’s face “several times,” but then Reynir came out to break the fight between them when he saw things “get out of hand.” The bartender then described the incident between him and Miller, sharing that the actor †[grabbed him] by the throat as [he tried] to lead them out [back] door and tells [him} they’re not leaving.”

Miller had claimed that the woman’s friends pushed them around, although the bartender noted this wasn’t what happened. Miller then “proceeded to spit in [his] several times face” before Reynir closed and locked the door. It should be noted that this act was reportedly committed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, making this incident much more egregious.

Miller then went to the main entrance and tried to get in aggressively, but they were eventually led away by friends, which was confirmed by multiple sources.

Another woman echoed the same sentiment about Miller, saying she had a friendship with Miller after a consensual sexual encounter in 2020. But then Miller’s mood changed dramatically when she told Miller not to smoke in her house, which “just turn them off.”

Miller then went on a verbal diatribe, saying in the simplest terms that they could do it “whatever they want, whenever they want” before the woman replied by saying that guests should ‘respect their host’s house rules’.

“And I quote this word for word,” she said. “They started with ‘I am a maker of planets. Tobacco is sacred.'”

When she told Miller this, they said… “looked at [her] with this really mean stern face, and said to me, ‘Sit down,’ like they ordered a dog.’ They responded to that comment by saying: “Yes, I talk to you like a dog.”

When the woman asked Miller to leave, they threw insulating material at her and began searching her entire house and… “sprinkling tobacco leaves on the ground:”

“I asked them to leave about 20 times, maybe more. They started insulting me. I’m a ‘transphobic piece of shit’. I’m a ‘Nazi’. It got so, so stressful for me. They walked through my house, looked at everything, touched everything and scattered tobacco leaves on the floor, it felt disgusting and very intrusive.”

She asked Miller if they remembered being… “a descendant of Holocaust survivors”, though Miller then turned it around and made himself feel like a victim in the situation:

“I asked them if they remember me telling them I’m a descendant of Holocaust survivors, so why would they say that to me? They answered and yelled at me, ‘Yes, but how many of my family died?’ Because many people in their family died. I thought, oh, okay, this is a game of who has the most trauma.”

About half an hour passed before she convinced Miller to leave, which happened after she called authorities. After that happened, she really believed that Miller “may attack somehow” [her] physical,” say they “felt totally unsafe” after that night.

She told Miller she was going to call the police. but then Miller turned it back to her by pretending to call the police as she called:

“I told them I called the police because they refused to leave. And while I called the police, Ezra called the police – or pretended to call the police. I don’t know.”

Miller then entered the woman’s bedroom and shouted that she… “they trigger” and that she had been the perpetrator in this case:

“…they started yelling that they were a rape survivor and I triggered them. They started saying I assaulted them. I beat them up. I hurt them.”

As the world learns more details about Ezra Miller’s troubles, the situation becomes increasingly difficult for both Warner Bros. as the fans looking forward to their work. While it’s incredibly disappointing, given that The flash officially been in development for nearly a decade, the film itself could be the studio’s least concern.

While the company denied having any discussions about replacing or firing Miller, insiders noted that the actor was almost done playing the role within the DCEU. Warner Bros. has already decided to skip San Diego Comic-Con this year, and as things stand now with Miller, it won’t be an easy time promoting this movie as the studio tries to figure out what to do next.

The flash is currently set to debut in theaters on June 23, 2023.
