Justice League and Fantastic Beasts actor Ezra Miller is wrapped up in yet another controversy. Two years after videos of the actor choking a woman surfaced online, the DC superhero actor has been arrested for an unrelated case of harassment.
Ezra Miller arrested in Hawaii
Reported by Hawaii News Now, Ezra Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment at a Hawaiian bar. Hawaii Island Police announced that the 29-year-old superhero actor was arrested and charged for his behaviour.
The incident occurred at karaoke bar on Silva Street, Hawaii. When at the karaoke bar, Miller became agitated when patrons started to sing karaoke. Allegedly, the actor started yelling obscenities at other people in the bar.
Additionally, Miller’s agitation allegedly turned to physical harassment. The actor is said to have snatched the microphone out of the hand’s of a young woman mid-song. Additionally, the actor is said to have lunged at a man trying to play darts.
Hawaii Island Police officers explained that Miller was asked multiple times to calm down. However, the actor allegedly refused, leading to an arrest on Sunday evening. The actor was released on a $500 bail.
Will there be repercussions?
Ezra Miller is one of Warner Bros’ biggest stars at the moment. Not only is the actor the face of its superhero universe as The Flash, but he's also an integral character in the Fantastic Beasts series. Warner Bros currently has two Miller movies in production: Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and The Flash.
At the moment, it seems unlikely that Miller will face consequences for this latest stunt. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore has already seen a recast of its main villain over the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard controversy. This means that they likely won't replace Miller in the movie, especially considering it releases in just over a week’s time.
As for The Flash, Warner Bros has already spent a considerable amount of time on creating that movie. However, the movie’s recent delay to June, 2023 will likely give audiences time to forget Miller’s transgressions.
Of course, Warner Bros — and other studios — may end up terminating future projects with the actor. This is all speculation, though.
