After a nail-biting year of box office flops and production scraps for Warner Bros., this Tuesday at CinemaCon, they unveiled the newest trailer for The Flash starring traveling terror and accused abuser Ezra Miller. But what was even more riveting than the film’s trailer was when its director Andy Muschietti told the audience that Ezra was “one of the best actors” he’s ever worked with… What kind of life-ruining information does Ezra have on Andy for him to embarrass himself like this?
The Flash (aka Ezra Miller) was a no-show at yesterday’s CinemaCon presentation for The Flash since they’ve also taken on the role of persona non grata after making back-to-back headlines for disorderly conduct, harassment, assault, restraining orders, grooming a child, and burglary. Not exactly the hill you’d think Andy would want to die on, but according to Deadline, here’s what he told the crowd:
Ezra Miller didn’t show up for the presentation, but The Flash director Andy Muschietti did, and he took time to praise the tabloid-laden actor, who stars in what is expected to be a huge summer blockbuster when it opens June 16.
Beamed Muschietti, “One of the best actors I’ve ever worked with. Every tool in the toolkit… [Miller] is an incredible comedian, and [has] all the action required for a big spectacle like this.”

Entertainment Weekly revealed that the night before CinemaCon, Warner Bros. held a screening event to showcase the current cut of the film, where Andy and his sis/The Flash producer Barbara Muschietti addressed Ezra’s state to the press for the first time during a Q&A:
“We’re all hoping that they get better… They’re taking the steps to recovery,” he added of the actor, who uses they/them pronouns. “They’re dealing with mental health issues, but they’re well. We talked to them not too long ago, and they’re very committed to getting better.”
“And, I have to say, during our shoot, during principal photography, their commitment to the role was something we’ve never seen,” Barbara said. “And the discipline to the work, the willingness — physical, mental, and just wanting to go beyond the pale — is just amazing.”
Ezra Miller must be a regular Energizer Bunny because around the time that Ezra was giving mind, body, and spirit to the movie, they were also reportedly grooming a minor. And instead of delusionally talking up Ezra Miller, Andy should’ve kept it real and said, “Please go see this movie, or I’ll never get a check from Warner Bros. again!”
