The Flash actor’s legal troubles continue to mount as he’s charged with a felony burglary in Vermont.
Another day, another troubling Ezra Miller story. It was reported late last night that Fantastic Beasts actor had been charged with felony burglary in the state of Vermont. The incident in question happened on May 1.
According to a police report, Vermont State Police were notified of a potential burglary in which “several bottles of alcohol were taken from within the residence while the homeowners were not present.” It’s currently not known whether Miller knew the people whose home they broke into.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller was located on August 7 and handed a citation to appear in court for an arraignment hearing on September 26. The report also states Miller’s place of residence as Vermont.
This is only the latest development in the saga of Ezra Miller. The actor has been arrested twice in Hawaii this year, first for disorderly behaviour and harassment and, later, for second degree assault after allegedly throwing a chair at a woman.
Neither Miller’s team or the actor themselves have commented on such matters. Warner Bros Discovery, the studio behind the Fantastic Beasts franchise in which Miller stars as Credence Barebone also hasn’t commented on the actor’s legal issues.
Miller is set to appear as the titular hero in WB’s The Flash next year. Just last week, David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros Discovery commented on how The Flash is “terrific,” moving full steam ahead with the film’s release.
Zaslav also controversially cancelled Batgirl, a move which has seemed to make him public enemy number one in social media and within the industry.
“We’re not going to launch a movie to make a quarter and we’re not going to put a movie out unless we believe in it,” Zaslav said of Batgirl’s cancellation last week.
Filmmakers like Kevin Smith have criticised Zaslav’s strategy of cancelling a diverse superhero film while staying committed to releasing one starring an actor accused of multiple wrongdoings.
