Ezra Miller’s career in the DCEU might be ending soon, as a new report suggests that the problematic actor is going to be cut after The Flash. According to Deadline, sources said even if no more allegations surface, the studio won’t likely keep Miller in the Flash role in future DC films.
That would mean they would replace his character Barry Allen 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.”

One source told the publication, “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.”
Per gossip website TMZ, Deadline originally wrote, “In (David) Zaslav’s plan to make DC an explosively successful division like Marvel under his newly structured studio, with its own new boss, the non-binary identifying Miller, we hear, is simply not a part of those plans going forward in the future universe regardless if there are more allegations or not.”
Prior to the recent news involving inappropriate and grooming behavior with minors, the We Need To Talk About Kevin actor was arrested twice in Hawaii for attacking folks in a karaoke bar. Following that, Miller was arrested for second-degree assault at a residence a month later, for allegedly throwing a chair at a woman, cutting her forehead.
