Americans are sick and tired of getting lectured to by Hollywood elites.
That’s become increasingly true as the entertainment industry’s dirty laundry is getting aired.
Now a bizarre Hollywood sex scandal just took a disturbing turn.
Warner Bros. is lagging far behind Disney in terms of comic book adaptations.
DC is experiencing a failure to launch its cinematic universe, while Marvel is onto phase four.
And Warner’s problems are getting worse because The Flash stand-alone film is turning into a disaster.
Ezra Miller, the star of the film, has gone completely off the rails in terms of his personal life, having multiple run-ins with law enforcement.
And now Miller is accused of running a quasi-cult.
CBR reported that “multiple people have stated that Miller acted like a cult leader during their time renting a spacious Airbnb in Reykjavik, Iceland, which was home to ‘a menagerie of Icelandic artists, expats, and spiritual confidants whom [Miller had] encouraged to stay there, even though many had their own homes in Reykjavik.’ One woman, who visited the house in March 2020, referred to the Airbnb as a ‘commune,’ noting how the guests living in the house were ‘hypnotized’ by Miller’s every word and unfazed by their mood swings. Rumors soon began to circulate in Reykjavik that The Flash actor was running a cult due to their monologues on spirituality and emotional outbursts, as well as their insistence that they possessed supernatural powers, requesting that guests should participate in group meditations.”
Miller was recently arrested in Hawaii after a weird confrontation in a karaoke bar.
He was also accused of going on the lam with a girl he allegedly groomed.
Business Insider reported that “law enforcement apparently ‘cannot locate or serve’ the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ star Ezra Miller after the parents of an 18-year-old activist filed a domestic-violence protection order against the actor…The order of protection was granted by a judge in the Standing Rock Sioux tribal court Tuesday…In the order, Chase Iron Eyes and Sara Jumping Eagle — the parents of the 18-year-old Gibson Iron Eyes — accuse the actor of physical and emotional abuse as well as grooming their child…While Gibson Iron Eyes is an adult under US law, the teen remains under parental guardianship under tribal law, which is where the order of protection was filed…Miller and Gibson Iron Eyes both identify as nonbinary and use they/them pronouns.”
Warner Bros. has dumped $300 million into The Flash, so it will not be as easy to pull the plug on it like they did Bat Girl.
Executives called an emergency meeting to discuss what to do regarding Miller.
Thus far, the plan appears to be to move ahead and do as much damage control as possible.
During an earnings call, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said, “We have seen The Flash, Black Adam, and Shazam 2. We are very excited about them…We’ve seen them. We think they are terrific, and we think we can make them even better.”
If Miller gets any more toxic, the studio might have to re-examine its position and reshoot the movie with a new actor, which would be an outrageous cost.
