Last October, we learned that The Flash star Ezra Miller had pled not guilty to felony burglary, but it seems the prospect of being locked behind bars for up to 25 years if found guilty may have caused them to rethink their situation!
Deadline is reporting that Miller has now entered a plea of guilty to the lesser charge of trespassing, which would only result in a $500 fine and the actor being placed on probation. More importantly, the deal means the charges of burglary and petty larceny will be dropped.
Miller was charged with felony burglary in Vermont after allegedly stealing three bottles of liquor from neighbor Isaac Winokur's pantry, but they've engaged in much worse behaviour over the past year or so. Last we heard, most of their major legal troubles appeared to have "gone away."
Though Miller's behaviour has caused major headaches for Warner Bros. Discovery, the studio is still set to release The Flash next year. The Barry Allen actor released a statement apologizing for his actions and promising to undergo treatment for their mental health issues, but not everyone was convinced they were being sincere.
Though Miller is not expected to reprise the role of the Scarlet Speedster again, a recent report indicated that new DC Studios co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran haven't made a decision yet. We can't imagine they'd risk such a PR nightmare, but money talks at the end of the day, and we know the WBD execs are very pleased with how the movie has been testing.
The Flash recently moved its release date up by one week, and is now set to race into theaters on June 16, 2023.
