As Ezra Miller Is Charged With Felony Burglary, Pressure Grows for Warner Discovery To Cancel His Movie

Alphabet privilege, Gary from Nerdrotic calls it.

The fate of Warner Bros.' The Flash hangs in the balance as actor Ezra Miller continues to make headlines for their controversial behavior and various arrests. An outright shelving of the film is not off the table, though it would be a last resort.

Warners -- and its new parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery -- had hoped to avoid the line of fire, because its big-budget DC superhero tentpole isn't scheduled to hit theaters until June 23, 2023. But the pressure is mounting by the day.

On Monday, the actor was charged with a felony burglary, and on Wednesday, Rolling Stone reported that Vermont's child services department is attempting to locate a mother and three children who have allegedly been residing at Miller's farm in the state.

That's not necessarily terrible, but... it's not anything good.

A source with knowledge of the situation says the studio appears to be preparing for three possible scenarios.

First, Warners has received indications that the 29-year-old Miller, whose mother has accompanied the actor in recent days, will seek professional help after returning home to their farm in Vermont after being away. If that happens, Miller, who goes by they/them pronouns, could give an interview at some point explaining their erratic behavior over the past few years. The actor could then do limited press for The Flash, and the movie would open in cinemas as planned.

The second scenario: Even if Miller doesn't reach out for help, Warners could still release the film. But don't expect Miller to play a prominent role in terms of marketing and publicity. Nor would Miller be the Flash going forward, as the role would be recast in future projects.

The third: The situation with Miller deteriorates further. This would see Warners killing the movie outright, as it could not be reshot with a different actor. Miller plays multiple characters and is in almost every scene. Scrapping a $200 million film would be an unprecedented move.

The movie is scheduled to be released June 23, 2023. Gary from Nerdrotic said something like, "That means that Warner Discovery has to spend the next year praying Miller doesn't murder someone in the meantime."

Last week, Business Insider ran this headline:

Ezra Miller's unraveling: Friends concerned as the 'Flash' actor travels the US in body armor and faces claims of running a cult in Iceland

But as Midnight's Edge pointed out, you can see the original headline in the URL:

I know the leftwing media gets overly panicked about guns, but... this guy should not have guns. He's got red flags sticking out of his ass, and that's not a metaphor. I mean, he actually inserts red flags into his rectum.

This was that "major negative story" that was on the horizon that Discovery Warner wouldn't be able to contain.

Reportedly, Alan Horn, hired to serve as a consiglierte of sorts, has advised David Zaslav to take the hit and just cancel the $200 million movie, reasoning that the damage to the DC movie universe and to Warner Bros. generally will be worse than $200 million.

Here's some quotes from the Business Insider hit on Ezra Miller, whose They/Them status no longer is enough to protect him in the media:


For years, Miller has been hailed as a hero of New Hollywood... When Miller came out as queer [in 2011] -- telling The Daily Beast, "I'm open to love wherever it can be found" -- fans had found their icon.


...

In June, Tokata's parents obtained a temporary protection order demanding Miller stay away from their child. In tribal court documents, the parents said the actor had been grooming Tokata for six years and was physically and emotionally abusive.

Tokata was 12 when Miller started "taking an interest in her," aka grooming her.

She's now 18.

Tokata herself denies this, but, you know. Patty Hearst defended the SLA for a while, too.

A week after Tokata's parents obtained their protection order, a Massachusetts mother of a 12-year-old was also granted a temporary harassment-protection order against Miller, who she said showed an inappropriate interest in her child.

Insider has spoken with 14 people who had recent interactions with Miller in which the actor exhibited frightening emotional outbursts, carried firearms, or left them feeling unsafe. Some people said Miller sought out impressionable young women and nonbinary people whom they could isolate from their families and control. In some cases, Miller had sexual relations with these people. In 2020, during a roughly two-month stint in Iceland where Miller walked the streets barefoot, rumors spread that the movie star was running a cult out of an Airbnb.

I will also omit parts about his emotional and mental instability -- he frequently turns on people savagely, out of nowhere, over nothing at all.

There's worse stuff that that. That just seems like nit-picking compared to the rest of it.

I do want to mention his smells, which is a sign of mental decay.


...

By the end of 2019, their behavior, once characterized as quirky, became more disturbing, observers said.

On the set of "Asking for It," a feminist thriller filmed in Oklahoma in fall 2019, Miller often wore long robes, a cape, and a unicorn head despite scorching temperatures, crew members said. (The ensemble was not part of Miller's on-screen wardrobe.) Many people on the set commented on Miller's pungent body odor, and one production staffer told Insider that Miller appeared mentally scattered.

...

Miller's presence was poorly received by some Icelanders, who said the actor was aggressive and emitted a putrid stench. The actor, who rarely changed out of the same loosely fitting bohemian clothing, strolled the frigid streets of Reykjavík barefoot, revealing long, pointy toenails and what looked like an infected gash on one foot, three people said. One person recalled seeing Miller walking around mumbling.

The article discusses the "cult" he's running. He has an apartment filled with mattresses and holds court, offering his #woke nonbinary ideology. Apparently people are mesmerized by this, like they were by Hitler.

Miller traveled everywhere with their personal assistant and spiritual advisor, Jasper Young Bear, who told locals he cut off at least one of his own fingers during a ritual ceremony. (Young Bear didn't respond to a request for comment.)

...

Between Miller's makeshift commune, their monologues on spirituality, and their emotional outbursts, rumors began to circulate in Reykjavík that the star was running a cult.

Miller held court daily at the Airbnb. They often alluded to possessing supernatural powers, two people said, and instructed guests to participate in group meditations led by Young Bear. They spoke at length about fate and the importance of social justice for marginalized groups. Many of the people who became involved with Miller said they believed in the issues Miller cared about but Miller often took things too far.

...

Another time, the young woman said, she was stretching in a communal area when Miller approached and asked whether she was practicing yoga. The two began discussing yoga. Then Miller started screaming. "Ezra was like, 'You don't know anything about yoga!'" she recalled. "This hostile demon just took over." In both cases, the young woman said, Miller made her feel ashamed for being white.

The really repulsive stuff concerns his grooming of young children-- I'm sorry, I mean, concerns his Drag Queen Story Hour activities. Sorry, Twitter!

...

But over time, they said, Miller's interest in their daughter intensified. In December 2017, Miller flew Tokata -- then 14 and a devoted "Harry Potter" fan — and other Standing Rock members to London to visit the set of "Fantastic Beasts," tribal court documents say. The documents said Miller, who was 25 at the time, attempted to sleep in the same bed as Tokata but was stopped by a tribal member. Tokata's parents said they didn't learn about this incident until earlier this year; Tokata said it never happened.

...

In January 2020, when Tokata was 16, she enrolled at Bard College at Simon's Rock -- less than a two-hour drive from Miller's Vermont farm.

During the group's four-day stay, Miller unexpectedly drew a gun, ranted about being followed by the FBI, and refused to let Tokata out of their sight, said Bear Cross and another member of the household, who asked to remain anonymous.

...

One cold night, the household member said, she saw Miller having sex with Tokata on a bed outside.

Sixteen isn't that young, but it is young, and he was 26. And he had allegedly been driving hard towards this particular basket since she was 12 or 14.

And we don't know this was the first time. This is just the first time we have a witness (allegedly).

...

"This is when I was able to see some of Ezra's deranged behavior," Iron Eyes said. On the trip, he said, Miller claimed [he was] an incarnation of Jesus Christ, said Tokata was Miller's mother in a past life, and at one point brandished a gun in a state park. Tokata's parents pointed to these incidents in the protection order as examples of violence and psychological manipulation.

Later that month, Miller returned to the Vermont farm with Tokata in tow. On January 29, Miller and their house guests called Tokata's parents to tell them Tokata was incapacitated after having taken LSD four days prior.

Drugged children.

Here's another creepy claim:

...


[A witness] said they paused their kiss, and Miller told Tokata, "No abuse without love." Tokata said she and Miller never kissed and Miller didn't say those words.

And yet, that sounds like such an "Ezra" thing to say.

Ezra also took an interest in another 11-year-old girl. There's no actual crime here. Just... creepy, creepy interest.

...

In February, a few days after Tokata's LSD incident, Miller visited a small town in Massachusetts. There they met a mother and her child, who was 11 at the time and who identifies as nonbinary.

...

The mother, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her child, told Insider the actor showed an inappropriate interest in her 11-year-old. She said Miller complimented the child's style and maturity level and asked whether they were interested in starting a clothing line together. Miller also offered to pay for the child to attend design school.

"I want to invest in your future. I want to make you somebody," the now-12-year-old recalled Miller telling them. They added they were "really uncomfortable 'cause I'm somebody who doesn't like talking to new people" but said Miller was "pushing and pushing me to talk."

...

Miller blew up again when the mother used the word "tribe" to refer to her friends, screaming that she was racist and accusing her of cultural appropriation, she said. She also recalled Miller saying her child was "a mystical being" who was more powerful than their mother and who "would be lucky to have Ezra to guide and protect them."

That mother wised up and got a protective order against Miller, restraining him from making contact with her daughter. Nothing further happened. (Yet, knock wood.)

So they're going to release this movie?

Supposedly the movie is "testing well," but I assume that means "testing well for a DC movie," which means "testing meh but at least it's better than Batwoman."
