Ezra Miller Issues First Public Comments at ‘The Flash’ Premiere


Ezra Miller made a public showing for the first time in nearly two years on Monday night, attending the Los Angeles premiere of the DC Studios’ “The Flash.”

The embattled actor spoke openly about past misconduct allegations and legal woes before fans and many industry players at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Miller, who is non-binary and uses they and them pronouns, made a big show of acknowledging Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Film Group heads Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, and DC stewards James Gunn and Peter Safran for “your grace and discernment and care in the context of my life. And in bringing this moment to fruition.”

Following a series of escalating incidents, Miller was charged with felony burglary in Vermont in 2022 after police investigated an incident involving a robbery at a private residence. HIs troubles began in 2020 after a video was circulated in which Miller appeared to be choking a woman outside of a bar in Iceland. No charges were filed. The actor was also arrested twice in Hawaii, once for disorderly conduct and harassment. Miller pled no contest to a single count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct in the Hawaii case, and paid a $500 fine. The harassment charge was dismissed.

Miller received a rockstar welcome at “The Flash” premiere, introduced by his director Andy Muschietti.

“I love you, maestro,” Miller told the director. “I think you’re amazing, and I think your work is monumental.”

The studio announced ahead of time that the LA premiere would be Miller’s lone publicity commitment for the film. They walked the red carpet and did not stand for traditional on-camera and print interviews. Miller’s “The Flash” costar Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez turned up at the event, as did Muschietti’s “It” collaborator Jessica Chastain.

“The Flash” will open June 16 in North America. Despite euphoric reactions out of its debut screening at this year’s CinemaCon, and being heralded internally as one of the greatest superhero films ever made, early tracking has “The Flash” earning $70 million in its first weekend.
