Recent headlines have painted a bizarre and perhaps unflattering picture The Lightning Actor Ezra Miller, including reports of “placement of children on farms with firearms and marijuana plants” and alleged “grooming” of another person. As some may recall, this pattern of behavior apparently began two years ago, right at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and a viral video of Miller appearing to strangle a fan in a bar surfaced online. In a new report from Variety, the victim of that incident has now spoken out publicly for the first time, alongside an alleged victim of another incident involving the justice league Actor.
Speaking to the trade, the victim, who asked to remain anonymous, revealed the encounter began after she asked Millar about injuries to her, with the actor telling them they were “battle scars from a fight”. They revealed that after saying this, they told Miller, “Just so you know, I might put you in a fight,” the actor reportedly replied, “Do you really want to fight?” That exchange led to the one in the video shown physical altercation. Their story was corroborated by several other sources, with Handel even speaking to a bartender from the establishment who told them, “There was always something with Ezra.”
“I think it’s just fun and games – but it wasn’t that, either,” the victim told Handel of the encounter. “Suddenly, [they’re] on me, choke me, still scream in my face when I wanna fight. My friend who films sees [they’re] obviously not kidding and it’s actually serious so he stops filming and presses [them] away from me as [they’re] still trying to fight me. Two friends of mine actually stop [Miller] back as [they’re] screaming, “That’s what you wanted! That’s what you wanted!'”
diversity‘s report reveals a new encounter previously unknown to the public. An alleged victim in Berlin, Germany, spoke to Handel about her own encounter with Miller, which initially seemed pleasant before turning violent and aggressive after they told Miller not to smoke in their home. Her story was also corroborated by five other sources on the trade.
“It just upset her,” said the victim, identified only as Nadia diversity. “I’ve asked her to leave about 20 times, maybe more. They started insulting me. I’m a ‘transphobic piece of shit’. I am a nazi’. It got so, so stressful for me. They walked around my house, looked at everything, touched everything, spread tobacco leaves on the floor. It felt gross and very intrusive.”
These reports only highlight the latest news about the actor and his reported erratic behavior both in public and private. However, as a result of all this news, there has been a lot of concern and uncertainty among DC fans about how Warner Bros. Pictures will handle the long-awaited The Lightning Film recently pushed back to summer 2023 instead of a November 2022 release date.
Corresponding diversity however, the investment that WB has made The Lightning Film is just too much to scrap the project, dump it on HBO Max, or even reshoot Miller’s scenes with a new actor. Trade notes that the studio is “committed to releasing the film.” Check back here for more updates on how WB is handling this situation as we learn more.
