What are the Most Recent Allegations Against Miller?
Miller has been accused of grooming Tokata Iron Eyes, now 18, since he was 12 years old, a claim first made public by TMZ on June 8. Chase Iron Eyes and Sara Jumping Eagle, Iron Eyes’s parents, told People in court documents that Miller “took an immediate and apparently innocent liking” to their daughter Tokata and has been manipulating her for years. Moreover, Case and Sara claimed that when Tokata was a teenager, Miller gave him marijuana, LSD, and alcohol. The lawsuit also states that Miller, through the Quiet group, offered to cover Tokata’s college expenses. Tokata reportedly left school in December and has since visited Vermont, New York City, Los Angeles, and Hawaii with Miller. Chase and Sara allege in their complaint that Miller “holds sway over a young adolescent Tokata through violence, intimidation, the threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs.”
Tokata Iron Eyes responded to the allegations against Miller on Instagram on Monday. Takata’s parents told People that they “doubt whether they wrote the statement” because their son does not have a phone.
What’s Going on Between Ezra Miller and Warner Bros.?
Miller was arrested for the second time this year on April 20th, in Hawaii. The Hawaii Police Department claims that early in the morning, Miller was detained at a private residence in the Puna neighborhood on suspicion of second-degree assault. According to a press release, police identified the suspect as Ezra Miller, who “reportedly threw a chair, striking a 26-year-old female on the forehead, resulting in an approximately half-inch cut.”

A question about the initial detention. Miller was arrested at the end of March, the AP reports, at a karaoke bar in Hawaii. Assistant Chief Kenneth Quiocho of the Hawaii Police Department told the Associated Press that Miller objected to the film’s soundtrack song “Shallow” being sung by the audience. According to the AP report, before Miller and his companion were arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment, Miller “grabbed a mic from a singing woman and lunged at a man playing darts.” Also, the number of incidents seems to be growing. Since March 7, Miller has been the subject of multiple police calls in Hawaii. The Associated Press categorized the incidents as follows based on data provided by Quiocho:
They were “manini” incidents—a Hawaii Pidgin term that can mean minor or small—such as filming people at a gas station, refusing to leave the sidewalk area of a restaurant and arguing with people.
Two residents of Hawaii filed a lawsuit against Miller, and the allegations were included in the same AP story that detailed his arrest. The male petitioner is said to have been threatened by Miller, who “burst into the bedroom of the petitioner(s) and said, ‘I will bury you and your slut wife,'” according to the complaint. Residents claimed that Miller stole their passport and wallet and filed a restraining order against him (Miller’s pronouns are they/them). However, the AP reported two weeks later that the two people had withdrawn the restraining order against Miller. William Dean, the attorney for the two residents, would not elaborate on why they withdrew the restraining order.
According to Rolling Stone, Warner Bros. executives met to discuss Miller’s future with the franchise even before the second arrest. According to the article in Rolling Stone, Miller allegedly suffered “meltdowns” on the set of The Flash. Despite “no yelling or violent outbursts,” an insider claimed that Miller was “losing it.” Whenever Ezra entered the picture, the person would have a moment of clarity and realize, “I don’t know what I’m doing.” Studios executives reportedly met with Miller on March 30 and decided to put a hold on any further collaboration between Miller and the company.

What Does This Mean For the Future of the DCEU?
According to a new report in Variety, Miller will continue to play Flash on the big screen for the foreseeable future in the DCEU. The Flash “may simply cost too much money to scrap the project entirely and it likely will not generate the revenues needed to turn a profit without playing in theatres,” sources told Variety.
However, fans have been vocal on social media demanding that Miller be replaced by Gustin in the role of The Flash, so perhaps that is the most fan-pleasant solution. Since the theatrical release of The Flash isn’t until June 23, 2023, this situation, whether it involves Warner Bros. retaining Miller or replacing him, is likely far from over. If new information becomes available, we will update this report.
