Actor Ezra Miller, who will be featured in The Flash movie, has apologized to anyone they’ve “alarmed and upset” with their past behavior. In a new interview, Ezra revealed that they “suffered from complex mental health issues” and began treating them. Recently, Ezra was charged with burglary in Stamford, Vermont. Ezra’s statement comes just days after a report claimed that Warner Bros. came up with three options for dealing with the situation.

According to news agency ANI, the Vermont State Police Department was notified on May 1 of a burglary complaint from a home in Stamford. They discovered that several alcohol bottles had been taken from the residence while the homeowners were not present. Police found a possible reason to charge Ezra with breaking into a vacant home after collecting statements and watching surveillance videos. On August 7, Ezra was tracked down by police, who subpoenaed the actor to appear in Vermont court for arraignment 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 issues and have begun ongoing treatment. I want to apologize to everyone I have alarmed and I have been upset by my past behavior and I am determined to do the necessary work to return to a healthy, safe and productive phase of my life.”
According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros’ first option required Ezra to seek help and then “at one point give an interview explaining their erratic behavior over the past few years.” The second alternative was that if Ezra refused professional help, the studio would not involve them in the promotions of the film. According to the third option, the film would be scrapped to avoid bad publicity.
The developments come amid Ezra’s troubles with the law. Ezra has been at the center of several scandals this year. They were arrested twice in Hawaii this spring, once for disorderly conduct and harassment and again for second-degree assault. Ezra faces several allegations of abuse from various women around the world, including choking a woman in an Icelandic bar and harassing another woman in her home in Berlin. The parents of an 18-year-old activist have also accused them of looking after their daughter.
Ezra will star in the DC movie, The Flash, a reprise of their role from Justice League with a 2023 release date. Throughout their arrests and controversies, the question remained whether the solo Flash movie will be canceled next year or in the cinema will be released will continue to exist. But last week, Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav said, according to Variety, “We’ve seen The Flash, Black Adam and Shazam 2. We’re really excited about it.”
