Ezra Miller, known for their role in “The Flash,” recently spoke out about the support they received from DC Studios co-CEOs Peter Safran and James Gunn during their struggles with mental health leading up to the film’s release.
Miller, who identifies as non-binary, faced legal issues and accusations that overshadowed the movie’s promotion. Despite calls for reevaluation of Miller’s casting, the actor expressed gratitude towards the Warner Bros. Discovery team, including Zack Snyder, David Zaslav, and Mike DeLuca, for their understanding and assistance.
Miller specifically thanked Safran and Gunn for their care and discernment, acknowledging their contributions to bringing the film to fruition. They also extended appreciation to the countless artists, workers, and supporters who had been part of their decade-long journey.
While Safran emphasized Miller’s commitment to recovery, director Andy Muschietti expressed unwavering support for the actor and hinted at a potential sequel.
“Ezra is completely committed to their recovery, and we are fully supportive of that journey that they’re on right now,” Safran said. “When the time is right, when they feel like they’re ready to have the discussion, we’ll all figure out what the best path forward is. Right now, they are completely focused on their recovery. In our conversations with them over the last couple of months, it feels like they’re making enormous progress.”
