Ezra Miller, known for their role as The Flash, released a statement following a string of legal issues and abuse allegations.

A representative of Miller’s provided a statement to Variety, where the actor addressed their actions over the last few years.

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” said Miller.

“I want to apologise to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behaviour. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

The actor plates DC Universe superhero Barry Allen in the 2017 film, Justice League and its 2021 counterpart, Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

The 29-year-old has been involved in a number of serious incidents.

In 2020 a video surfaced where the actor appeared to have strangled a woman.

They were also arrested twice in Hawaii in March and April this year for disorderly conduct and harassment respectively.

Most recently, they were charged with felony burglary on 9 August. They’re set to appear in court on 26 September.

Miller stars in the upcoming standalone film The Flash, which is slated for box office release on 23 June 2023.

Critics have stated the film should be cancelled in light of Miller’s behaviour.

The allegations have caused concern for Warner Bros Discovery.

Miller stars in two of the studio’s largest franchises: the DC Comics films and the Harry Potter spinoff series Fantastic Beasts.

Scrutiny intensified when it was announced Batgirl would be cancelled, but The Flash film faced no consequences.
