Miller's apology tour continues in the wake of their recent behavior.
Ezra Miller has been on an apology tour over the past couple weeks, with their latest stop reportedly being a meeting with the heads of the Warner Bros. film division.
THR reports that Miller and their agent, Scott Metzger, met with WB film chairs Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, where they reportedly apologized for bringing negative attention to the The Flash. Miller also reportedly reaffirmed their commitment to the movie, which has been rumored to be under threat amid a flurry of controversy surrounding the actor.
Miller is said to have sought the meeting after reports emerged that the film might be canceled, not the least because The Flash is reportedly “one of their favorite characters to play,” according to one of THR's sources. Miller was reportedly apologetic and reaffirmed their commitment to getting care.

According to THR, the mood around The Flash has improved of late at WB Discovery, buoyed by strong audience test scores and Miller's recent about-face.
Still, even if WB Discovery goes ahead with The Flash, Miller's problems are far from over. The actor faces legal trouble in multiple states, including a felony burglary charge in Vermont. They also have been accused of grooming a teenager. Miller only recently reappeared after abruptly deleting their Instagram and vanishing.
In the wake of their reappearance, Miller apologized for their recent behavior, claiming they are suffering from “complex mental health issues.”
“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said earlier this month. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
In the meantime, WB Discovery is said to be preparing for multiple scenarios, including canceling the film outright. The Flash is one of many difficulties that the studio is currently facing amid the blowback over Batgirl's cancellation and more.
As for Miller, they're set to appear in in a Vermont court on September 27 to face their felony burglary charge.
