In a statement from a rep for Ezra Miller to Variety, the actor said, “Having recently gone through a period of intense crisis, I now understand that I suffer from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment. I would like to apologize to anyone I have alarmed and upset with my behavior in the past. I am committed to doing the work necessary to return to a healthy, safe and productive phase in my life.”
While it’s good news that Miller is looking to recover, it’s hard to ignore that this happened so shortly after Warner Bros. revealed Discovery’s plans to keep The Flash on track through June 23, 2023 and to avoid wrapping up a $200 million project set to revitalize its flagship franchise. Included among the three options the studio considered was a public announcement of Miller’s path to rehabilitation in hopes that they could seek the help they needed and move into a better, healthier state. We hope they do just that.
