Ezra Miller Reportedly Not Part of WB’s Future DC Plans After 2023 Movie

Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been in a bit of a pickle after Ezra Miller’s recent antics. The actor was arrested multiple times while vacationing in Hawaii for alleged harassment and disorderly conduct at a karaoke bar and for alleged assault at a private event. Miller is also charged with grooming and threatening violence against a young woman who is currently 18, as she was 12. Warner Bros. has yet to announce what it is doing with the situation, and now a new report from Deadline claims the studio is in a losing streak. The report also revealed that they would no longer include the actor in future DC projects after the flash.

“There is no win in this for Warner Bros,” Deadline wrote. “It’s a problem inherited from Zaslav. The hope is that the scandal will remain at a low level before the film is released, and I hope for the best.” In Zaslav’s plan to make DC an explosively successful division like Marvel under his newly structured studio, with his own new boss, the non-binary id Miller, we hear is just not part of those plans going forward in the future universe, whether there are more allegations or not.”

While it’s unclear if the studio could even recast Miller this late in the game, the flash should see the return of Michael Keaton as Batman. Keaton hasn’t played the role since 1992 Return of Batman and has since moved on to the Marvel Universe with his final appearance as Adrian Toomes/Vulture in Morbius. The actor previously revealed why he came on board to return as Batman for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. While speaking with The Jess Cagle Show, Keaton explained what brought him back to the role.

“When it came back, I was curious about it. I thought, ‘Boy, what would that look like?’ And then, coincidentally, there were whispers, I got a call from Warner Bros. They wanted to talk to me about something, and there were hints of Batman,” Keaton recently revealed during his appearance on series. “I think it was about something else regarding Batman… I got a call later saying, ‘We want you to read something. I just thought, ‘Of course you have to.'”

On his Batman return in The Flash, Keaton added, “It’s got to be good. There’s no reason to do it if it’s not good. It won’t change a thing. And I jumped in and I had fun. And why not? You know, I mean, director Andy Muschietti is fantastic, and it’s really creative. I don’t know. It’s fun.”
