Actress Ezra Miller, who appeared in The Flash film, has apologized to all those whom she ‘worried and upset’ by her past behaviour. In a new interview, Ezra revealed that he is ‘battling with complex mental health problems’ and started treatment for the same. Recently, Ezra was charged with a felony in Stamford, Vermont. Ezra’s statement comes just days after a report claimed that Warner Bros. had come up with three options to deal with the situation.

According to news agency ANI, the Vermont State Police was informed about a complaint of theft from a residence in Stamford on May 1. They found that several bottles of liquor were taken from the house while the owner of the house was not present. After collecting statements and watching surveillance videos, the police found probable cause to charge Ezra with felony charges in a deserted residence. On August 7, Ezra was found by police, who issued the actor a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court on September 26.
In a statement to Variety, Ezra said, “Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I suffer from complex mental health problems and have started treatment. I apologize to all.” I would like to demand that I am concerned and disturbed by my past behavior. I am committed to doing what is necessary to return to a healthy, safe and productive state in my life.”
According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros.’s first option required Ezra to be consulted and then “given an interview explaining his erratic behavior over the years.” The other option was that if Ezra refused professional help, the studio would not involve him in promoting the film. As per the third option, the film will be scrapped to avoid bad publicity.
Events unfold amid Ezra’s trouble with the law. Ezra has been at the center of several scandals this year. He was arrested twice this spring in Hawaii, once for disorderly conduct and harassment and once for second-degree assault. Ezra faces several allegations of abuse by various women around the world, including strangling a woman in an Icelandic bar and harassing another woman at her home in Berlin. The parents of an 18-year-old worker have also accused them of grooming their daughter.
Ezra is set to star in the DC film, The Flash, a reprise of his role from Justice League which has a 2023 release date. During his arrest and controversies, the question of whether the single Flash film will be canceled or released in theaters next year remains. However, last week, according to Variety, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said, “We’ve seen The Flash, Black Adam and Shazam 2. We’re very excited about them.”
