Warner Bros. is currently experiencing a PR nightmare with both Amber Heard and Ezra Miller. While Heard is not the star of Aquaman 2, Ezra Miller is the lead of The Flash, one of the studio’s biggest tentpole movies in their lineup. With every new allegation that comes out directed toward Miller, Warner Bros. is going to have to make a decision. Could the studio recast Ezra Miller as The Flash? Well, that would be difficult.

A North Dakota family filed a legal complaint against Miller after accusing them of grooming their daughter, Tokata Iron Eyes, since the age she was 12. Iron Eyes made a post denying these accusations, but now Miller is missing and the orders have not been served to them yet. According to Entertainment Weekly, the actor faces new accusations from a family who claims they harassed their 12-year-old child and “brandished a gun in a threatening manner.”
These allegations come after Miller has faced other legal problems in Hawaii. They were recently arrested twice in Hawaii. The first time was for harassing a woman at a karaoke bar and assaulting another man. The second time was for throwing a chair at a woman at a party. These events in 2022 have put Ezra Miller past the point of no return, meaning Warner Bros. is going to have to do something about The Flash.

So, the question becomes what do they do?
Many fans want Miller to be replaced, but that would be difficult to make happen. The movie is already done shooting and would have come out this year if it had not been delayed. While last-minute reshoots have been done with different cast members (Christopher Plummer replacing Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World), the difference is that Ezra Miller will be in almost every frame of The Flash.
For a recasting to happen, it means that the movie will have to be delayed once again and the film basically needs to be remade. This would mean Warner Bros. has to invest millions of dollars back into production while also coordinating with all of the cast and crew to come back. The studio doesn’t want to do that, so the question becomes how do …read more
