As Ezra Miller Is Charged With Felony Burglary, Pressure Grows for Warner Discovery To Cancel His Movie

Alphabet privilege, Gary from Nerdrotic calls it.

The fate of Warner Bros.' The Flash hangs in the balance as actor Ezra Miller continues to make headlines for their controversial behavior and various arrests. An outright shelving of the film is not off the table, though it would be a last resort.

Warners -- and its new parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery -- had hoped to avoid the line of fire, because its big-budget DC superhero tentpole isn't scheduled to hit theaters until June 23, 2023. But the pressure is mounting by the day.

On Monday, the actor was charged with a felony burglary, and on Wednesday, Rolling Stone reported that Vermont's child services department is attempting to locate a mother and three children who have allegedly been residing at Miller's farm in the state.

That's not necessarily terrible, but... it's not anything good.

A source with knowledge of the situation says the studio appears to be preparing for three possible scenarios.

First, Warners has received indications that the 29-year-old Miller, whose mother has accompanied the actor in recent days, will seek professional help after returning home to their farm in Vermont after being away. If that happens, Miller, who goes by they/them pronouns, could give an interview at some point explaining their erratic behavior over the past few years. The actor could then do limited press for The Flash, and the movie would open in cinemas as planned.

The second scenario: Even if Miller doesn't reach out for help, Warners could still release the film. But don't expect Miller to play a prominent role in terms of marketing and publicity. Nor would Miller be the Flash going forward, as the role would be recast in future projects.

The third: The situation with Miller deteriorates further. This would see Warners killing the movie outright, as it could not be reshot with a different actor. Miller plays multiple characters and is in almost every scene. Scrapping a $200 million film would be an unprecedented move.

The movie is scheduled to be released June 23, 2023. Gary from Nerdrotic said something like, "That means that Warner Discovery has to spend the next year praying Miller doesn't murder someone in the meantime."

Last week, Business Insider ran this headline:

Ezra Miller's unraveling:
Friends concerned as the 'Flash' actor travels the US in body armor
and faces claims of running a cult in Iceland

But as Midnight's Edge pointed out, you can see the original headline in the URL:

https://www.businessinsider.com
/ezra-miller-flash-running-a-cult-grooming-minors-carrying-guns-2022-8

I know the leftwing media gets overly panicked about guns, but... this guy should not have guns. He's got red flags sticking out of his ass, and that's not a metaphor. I mean, he actually inserts red flags into his rectum.

This was that "major negative story" that was on the horizon that Discovery Warner wouldn't be able to contain.

Reportedly, Alan Horn, hired to serve as a consiglierte of sorts, has advised David Zaslav to take the hit and just cancel the $200 million movie, reasoning that the damage to the DC movie universe and to Warner Bros. generally will be worse than $200 million.

Here's some quotes from the Business Insider hit on Ezra Miller, whose They/Them status no longer is enough to protect him in the media:


For years, Miller has been hailed as a hero of New Hollywood... When Miller came out as queer [in 2011] -- telling The Daily Beast, "I'm open to love wherever it can be found" -- fans had found their icon.


...

In June, Tokata's parents obtained a temporary protection order demanding Miller stay away from their child. In tribal court documents, the parents said the actor had been grooming Tokata for six years and was physically and emotionally abusive.

Tokata was 12 when Miller started "taking an interest in her," aka grooming her.

She's now 18.

Tokata herself denies this, but, you know. Patty Hearst defended the SLA for a while, too.

A week after Tokata's parents obtained their protection order, a Massachusetts mother of a 12-year-old was also granted a temporary harassment-protection order against Miller, who she said showed an inappropriate interest in her child.

Insider has spoken with 14 people who had recent interactions with Miller in which the actor exhibited frightening emotional outbursts, carried firearms, or left them feeling unsafe. Some people said Miller sought out impressionable young women and nonbinary people whom they could isolate from their families and control. In some cases, Miller had sexual relations with these people. In 2020, during a roughly two-month stint in Iceland where Miller walked the streets barefoot, rumors spread that the movie star was running a cult out of an Airbnb.

I will also omit parts about his emotional and mental instability -- he frequently turns on people savagely, out of nowhere, over nothing at all.

There's worse stuff that that. That just seems like nit-picking compared to the rest of it.

I do want to mention his smells, which is a sign of mental decay.

...

By the end of 2019, their behavior, once characterized as quirky, became more disturbing, observers said.

On the set of "Asking for It," a feminist thriller filmed in Oklahoma in fall 2019, Miller often wore long robes, a cape, and a unicorn head despite scorching temperatures, crew members said. (The ensemble was not part of Miller's on-screen wardrobe.) Many people on the set commented on Miller's pungent body odor, and one production staffer told Insider that Miller appeared mentally scattered.

...

Miller's presence was poorly received by some Icelanders, who said the actor was aggressive and emitted a putrid stench. The actor, who rarely changed out of the same loosely fitting bohemian clothing, strolled the frigid streets of Reykjavík barefoot, revealing long, pointy toenails and what looked like an infected gash on one foot, three people said. One person recalled seeing Miller walking around mumbling.

The article discusses the "cult" he's running. He has an apartment filled with mattresses and holds court, offering his #woke nonbinary ideology. Apparently people are mesmerized by this, like they were by Hitler.


Miller traveled everywhere with their personal assistant and spiritual advisor, Jasper Young Bear, who told locals he cut off at least one of his own fingers during a ritual ceremony. (Young Bear didn't respond to a request for comment.)

...

Between Miller's makeshift commune, their monologues on spirituality, and their emotional outbursts, rumors began to circulate in Reykjavík that the star was running a cult.

Miller held court daily at the Airbnb. They often alluded to possessing supernatural powers, two people said, and instructed guests to participate in group meditations led by Young Bear. They spoke at length about fate and the importance of social justice for marginalized groups. Many of the people who became involved with Miller said they believed in the issues Miller cared about but Miller often took things too far.

...

Another time, the young woman said, she was stretching in a communal area when Miller approached and asked whether she was practicing yoga. The two began discussing yoga. Then Miller started screaming. "Ezra was like, 'You don't know anything about yoga!'" she recalled. "This hostile demon just took over." In both cases, the young woman said, Miller made her feel ashamed for being white.

The really repulsive stuff concerns his grooming of young children-- I'm sorry, I mean, concerns his Drag Queen Story Hour activities. Sorry, Twitter!


...

But over time, they said, Miller's interest in their daughter intensified. In December 2017, Miller flew Tokata -- then 14 and a devoted "Harry Potter" fan — and other Standing Rock members to London to visit the set of "Fantastic Beasts," tribal court documents say. The documents said Miller, who was 25 at the time, attempted to sleep in the same bed as Tokata but was stopped by a tribal member. Tokata's parents said they didn't learn about this incident until earlier this year; Tokata said it never happened.

...

In January 2020, when Tokata was 16, she enrolled at Bard College at Simon's Rock -- less than a two-hour drive from Miller's Vermont farm.

During the group's four-day stay, Miller unexpectedly drew a gun, ranted about being followed by the FBI, and refused to let Tokata out of their sight, said Bear Cross and another member of the household, who asked to remain anonymous.

...

One cold night, the household member said, she saw Miller having sex with Tokata on a bed outside.

Sixteen isn't that young, but it is young, and he was 26. And he had allegedly been driving hard towards this particular basket since she was 12 or 14.

And we don't know this was the first time. This is just the first time we have a witness (allegedly).


...

"This is when I was able to see some of Ezra's deranged behavior," Iron Eyes said. On the trip, he said, Miller claimed [he was] an incarnation of Jesus Christ, said Tokata was Miller's mother in a past life, and at one point brandished a gun in a state park. Tokata's parents pointed to these incidents in the protection order as examples of violence and psychological manipulation.

Later that month, Miller returned to the Vermont farm with Tokata in tow. On January 29, Miller and their house guests called Tokata's parents to tell them Tokata was incapacitated after having taken LSD four days prior.

Drugged children.

Here's another creepy claim:


...


[A witness] said they paused their kiss, and Miller told Tokata, "No abuse without love." Tokata said she and Miller never kissed and Miller didn't say those words.

And yet, that sounds like such an "Ezra" thing to say.

Ezra also took an interest in another 11-year-old girl. There's no actual crime here. Just... creepy, creepy interest.


...

In February, a few days after Tokata's LSD incident, Miller visited a small town in Massachusetts. There they met a mother and her child, who was 11 at the time and who identifies as nonbinary.

...

The mother, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her child, told Insider the actor showed an inappropriate interest in her 11-year-old. She said Miller complimented the child's style and maturity level and asked whether they were interested in starting a clothing line together. Miller also offered to pay for the child to attend design school.

"I want to invest in your future. I want to make you somebody," the now-12-year-old recalled Miller telling them. They added they were "really uncomfortable 'cause I'm somebody who doesn't like talking to new people" but said Miller was "pushing and pushing me to talk."

...

Miller blew up again when the mother used the word "tribe" to refer to her friends, screaming that she was racist and accusing her of cultural appropriation, she said. She also recalled Miller saying her child was "a mystical being" who was more powerful than their mother and who "would be lucky to have Ezra to guide and protect them."

That mother wised up and got a protective order against Miller, restraining him from making contact with her daughter. Nothing further happened. (Yet, knock wood.)

So they're going to release this movie?

Supposedly the movie is "testing well," but I assume that means "testing well for a DC movie," which means "testing meh but at least it's better than Batwoman."

59 People really like Batman, and they like Batman movies. Even ones that are not really that great get high praise, like the last one, and make money. So they can rely on that.

I mean the Superman movies Snyder made earned a lot of money, they were just hated by fans and critics. So there's money power in Superman, if done right. Those properties aren't wrung dry yet like Avengers, for example.

Don't get me wrong, Captain Marvel was one my favorite comic book characters when I was a kid and the 70's TV show with Isis was cool too but for some reason he just doesn't translate to movies.

He just didn't have any cool supervillains like Batman and Superman and as we know it's really the villains that make the hero compelling and interesting.

69 Here's some anecdata on this. Take it for what it's worth.

I knew who The Flash was from my kid days knowing DC Comics sucked back in the 80s. I knew there was a modern reboot from commercials that signaled it was time to grab another beer. I did not know of the sentient turd named Ezra Miller.

Thus, overcoming my revulsion of millennials, zoomers, and pretty much anything under thirty years old not a dog, shirt, or classic rock album, I began an experiment. Did they know of the Saga of Ezra Miller ? Did they know what day it was ? Could they make exact change without using a calculator ?

Get this, they have no idea who Ezra Miller even is, let alone that these events are happening. They can typically tell you which day ending in Y - but not the date. Proper change is out of the question.

106 tbh, I was shocked to learn that shazam was a marvel IP

its not but the real story is so complicated and ridiculous you can be forgiven for being confused.

Captain Marvel was a very early creation, like a year after Superman. Eventually he became more popular than Superman, and the company which became DC sued for stealing their Superman concept. They believed (and argued) that they owned ALL superheroes as a genre, and anything that remotely resembled Superman.

The guys that owned and published Captain Marvel fought the suit for years, until comic books just weren't making much money and said "eh, screw it you have him" and sold all their other properties to DC (went on to make Mad magazine etc).

Then DC sort of forgot the character of Captain Marvel entirely and the copyright lapsed. Marvel Comics thought "well hell Marvel is in the name, we should have that character" so they came up with their own, totally unlike Captain Marvel version of the character.

It's probably the best move. Those 2 movies will give them over 300m in write offs and then easily clears the decks of DC movies. Black Adam, Shazam 2 and aquaman 2 will all be out by Feb. the only other movie that has been officially greenlit is joker 2. Zappa has said he is going to make DC theater focused and make Warner profitable. Clearing the decks this year and making a clear path forward is the easiest way to do that.

A court eventually ruled that the IP of Captain Marvel was more key to Marvel Comics and their properties by the name alone, so they got to use the name. Captain Marvel was then just called Shazam which is... really odd because that's his magical word that swaps him back and forth between the Big Red Cheese and little Billy Batson.

Marvel Comics came out with a whole cavalcade of Marvels just to make sure they controlled the name, most of whom are forgotten or stupid.

My theory is that, up until rather recently, Hollywood went through great pains to keep these bastards under wraps, and this warped shit has always went on. I'll guess the second biggest amount of effort from the studio system, behind making profitable movies, was keeping their talent's weird ass appetites off the screen, out of the papers, and within the confines of the town. In the last couple decades, something changed.

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — The owners of My Inner Baby received a cease-and-desist order from the Noblesville city government on Friday, days after the Board of Zoning Appeals ruled the business was in violation of its current zoning guidelines.

“We’re a medical supply store. We sell adult diapers and related incontinence supplies as well as costumes for age-play, as well as any type of events where people want to participate in age regression,” said owner Ryan Polokoff.

Polokoff said age regression is used in therapy, allowing people to retreat back to a time in their lives when they felt safe.

The city government says because My Inner Baby markets itself with the hashtag “#ABDL’ — adult babies and diaper lovers — by definition, it’s considered a sex shop, and therefore the business is violating its commercial zoning guidelines.

148 By next Spring no one will remember this movie, the best move is to cancel it now. The longer it drags on the worse it will be for Warner Discovery.

I think they can get away with making him Reverse Flash, the bad guy. They would just have to reshoot ALL of his good guy Flash scenes, which cannot be a minor undertaking in a film that's already 300 million in the red.

The Death of Captain Marvel is easily one of the top ten best graphic novels.

Yeah he was one that worked well. Ms Marvel was kind of interesting at first, and I liked the Monica Rambeau version.

the studio system was used to control actors, way back when. However, valuable actors tended to be covered for. For example, it was rumored Errol Flynn killed someone in a drunk driving accident, but the studio got a flunky to claim responsibility.

He might get his movie cancelled. And yeah, a $200m total clawback of a movie well into production would be unprecented... but only by degree.

That Batgirl debacle clocked in @ $90m+ when they pulled the plug, and nobody on that project had sex with kids while running around in body armor, waving a gun, and claiming to be the manifestation of Christ... that we know of, anyway.

But that's just business and money, and this is H'wood. The fact is, he'll never do a day in jail. He might go to some rehab or mental health facility for a minute. He'll get out, grow increasingly mad, take bigger risks, and eventually die horribly with a non-zero risk of related fatalities.

Northstar, the hot, slutty speedster girl's twin brother. Who HAD been into chicks just a few years earlier but Marvel was playing politics even back then.

Wolverine first started in Alpha Flight, well before X-men. Guardian, the 'iron man' guy was a very cool male hero...and he got killed off so his wife could wear the suit instead. More sexual politics.

Northstar, the flying speedster twin who displayed absolutely zero characteristics of being homosexual whatsoever as he was neck deep in gorgeous women throwing themselves at him, then suddenly announced he was a pouf.

Alpha Flight was an example of a writer taking only ONE tip to heart: characters need to have flaws. So he built a superhero team made up entirely of flaws, sometimes brutal and murderous ones.

Well if gays* have 10X the suicide rate of normies, and trans people 40X the rate of normies, I think we're venturing into calling the kettle black territory.

* Anne Hecht for example - driving under the influence of drugs at high speed? Suicide. Period.

230 Minneapolis teacher union negotiated contract stipulates "underrepresented" people are exempt from seniority based layoffs.

https://bit.ly/3C2BVSW

So white teachers with seniority will be laid off before BIPOC people without seniority. Considering we're talking about white teachers in Minneapolis, they're probably solidly crazed leftists, so it's friendly fire.

232 I'm not a psychiatrist, or a physician of any sort; but I've had to deal with mentally-ill relatives, and Miller has all the hallmarks I've seen in my relatives who've needed hospitalization, and then some. Whether he'd be such a creep if he had proper treatment is hard to say; with some people, madness becomes so big a part of their persona that they come to prefer crazy to sane. If Miller were just an ordinary guy, he might have a chance; but as a star, I fear for him and for anyone who's in his vicinity.

That being said, any person who lets Miller handle a firearm is the one who really should be committed!

Different time, different situation. The party is leaving the establishment behind slowly but surely.


Different time by default, but the situation is EXACTLY the same, and also mirrors the Tea Party Wave. The Electorate is, once again, demonstrating a preference for something different. The Party, however, is once again asking "But baby, where else are you gonna' go ?".

So far the GOP is 3-0, at least in my lifetime, on this. They isolated Trump. They nullified the Tea Party. And Hell, they fought Reagan where they could, handcuffed him with Bush, and went right back to business is usual the day The Gipper left the White House.

I'll believe the GOP has changed when it shows it has changed.

Sure. In Big Budget Cartoon Thingie #62, Herotron has to fight "The Catamite," who runs an Icelandic death cult that believes the genderless aliens who commanded them to release the dick-rotting bioweapon are allergic to soap.

After he kills The Catamite, Herotron is revealed to be the *real* villain, and all men voluntarily castrate themselves to make the world more female and therefore better.

I'm not sure if this is the right time but some of you know I've have computer issues ever since I got my new laptop. It freezes up, blank screen of death etc. It seems to happen after I've been here. All damn day long computer freezes up. Sometimes I can get it back sometimes I have to reboot, sometimes I have to cold boot. I can't figure it out. I'm thinking I may take a two day break and see if it still happens. It shouldn't obviously but something is hanging the damn thing up. Always after I have been here though.

249 I think everyone is really really done with superhero origins except the movie studios. They really aren't needed unless its a critical part of the plot (like, say Spider-Man or Iron Man). Hell, Stan Lee supposedly came up with using Mutants for the X-Men so he wouldn't have to make up any more origin stories: they're just born that way, done.

Now in MCU canon the first mutant was... Ms Marvel.

We're talking about completely different things, Jack, in the micro. Yes, Liz will get her ass handed to her in Wyoming. Just like Pence would have had his ass handed to him if he had stayed long enough to lose in Indiana.

In both cases, the GOP won't care, because both persons are useful in their national effort to pull away some fraction of support and / or influence from Trump. In Liz's case, there will be X amount of voters that - still - are looking for any reason not to vote for the Orange Haired Vulgarian. Liz will provide that excuse, in some amount of states that will already be too close for comfort after the DNC / GOPe vote rig.

That's the thing, Jack. The GOP doesn't mind losing in Wyoming, any more than they mind losing Congressional Majorities or Presidential Elections. They mind losing control of their own party, though. They mind that quite a bit. More than anything, apparently.

259 The big problem with the DC movies is that they really really really want to run all of these oddball variations of their top superheroes without, at the very least, establishing the basic, baseline superhero that people love and have a following.

Snyder's Superman, f'rinstance. Dude doesn't get Superman at all. Right off the bat, ole Super is shirking off and kinda hates humankind, and why won't they all leave him alone???? And then Super kills Zod right out of the gate. Very unSuperman-like and then Snyder want wants Superman to be the Big Bad in the upcoming movies. Fuck that.

Same with Flash. They're going straight to Flashpoint with absolutely nothing and no one properly established.

This is lousy thinking and piss-poor movie making.
