Ezra Miller surprised fans of “The Flash” by making a public appearance at the movie’s premiere on Monday night, despite ongoing legal issues.

This marks the first public appearance for Miller in years.
Ezra Miller attends ‘The Flash’ premiere, issues rare comment
Miller’s off-screen scandals made headlines before the completion of the film. The “Stand” actor appeared to address their recent controversies while thanking Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Film Group heads Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, and DC Studios’ James Gunn and Peter Safran in a speech. Miller praised the executives for their “grace and discernment and care in the context of [their] life” and for “bringing this moment to fruition.” They also expressed their “love” for director Andy Muschietti.
While co-stars Ben Affleck and Kiersey Clemons posed for cast photos at the Ovation Hollywood event in Los Angeles, fans expressed confusion over Miller’s presence via Twitter. Some social media users questioned whether the actor would face any consequences for their actions, while others joked that the entire $220 million budget went towards Miller’s legal fees.
Miller’s controversies began in 2020 when they were captured on video appearing to choke a female fan in Iceland. Although no charges were filed, Miller faced legal issues in Hawaii for disorderly conduct and harassment, which resulted in a $500 fine and dismissal of charges, respectively. Miller also faced felony burglary charges in Vermont in 2017, pleading guilty to a misdemeanor unlawful trespass. In a statement to Variety, Miller apologized for their past behavior and expressed a commitment to seeking treatment for “complex mental health issues.”
