Roy Rochlin / GettyThanks to one of the most notorious fan campaigns of all time, Warner Bros. Pictures, published on HBO Max Thursday Zack Snyder’s Justice League – aka “The Snyder Cut “. Despite a passionate campaign to reveal what the original director’s film would have looked like before Joss Whedon stepped in, the Snyder cut has received mixed reviews. The film also debuts after Warner Bros. chose to stand with DC Films President Walter Hamada – cyborg actor Ray Fisher was accused of attempting a misconduct investigation into abusive and racist behavior in the Justice League undermined to protect his “friend and alumni” co-president, “producer Geoff Johns. (A WarnerMedia representative’s statement said in part that “a full investigation was conducted by an outside law firm, led by a former federal judge who has assured WarnerMedia that there are no obstacles to the investigation.”) But discussion around the film’s release appears to be ignoring yet another controversy that erupted last spring – one that seems to have been somewhat lost in the early days of the pandemic-triggered quarantine. ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ producer Deborah Snyder on Joss Whedon, DC fans and the ‘joy’ of graduation In early April, a video surfaced online in which Flash actor Ezra Miller appeared to be suffocating a woman and knocking her to the ground The video, which was recorded outside in the snow, only lasts seven seconds. Miller, dressed in a red coat, calls out, “Did you want to fight? Is that the deal? “The woman comes up to him, waves her arms and appears to be smiling. Miller grabs her by the neck and pushes her back against a metal container before pushing her to the ground while another voice – apparently the cameraman’s – says,” Whoa, bro, bro, bro. “The camera lowers before the clip ends abruptly. The video surfaced on Twitter and Reddit but was largely treated as a rumor. Variety, however, caught the incident shortly after the clip appeared The incident reportedly took place outside the Prikið Kaffihús bar and cafe in Reykjavík, Iceland. A source at the waterhole confirmed to Variety that the incident occurred around 6pm on April 1, when some were “pretty intrusive “fans approached the actor. Although some online fans at the time believed the video was some kind of prank, or perhaps it was taken out of context, the Variety source said it was serious serious argument. They also confirmed that the person concerned was Miller. (The Daily Beast reached out to one of the original posters in the video and reached out to Prikið for more details, but received no response.) In the end, the source says, Prikið Miller’s staff escorted Miller from the premises. Reykjavík City Police spokesman Gunnar Rúnar Sveinbjörnsson told The Daily Beast in an email that the police had not been called and that no one had been arrested or taken into custody. Representatives from Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment. Miller, using she / she pronouns, first saw a career breakout in the early 2010s – first with the 2011 psychological thriller we need to talk about Kevin and a year later with the coming-of-age drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower. After a harrowing twist at the Stanford Prison Experiment in 2015, Miller had a big break in 2016, debuting both as The Flash in Suicide Squad and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but also as Credence Barebone in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them . Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller in Zack Snyder’s Justice League HBO Max And So Miller remains a key ingredient in two massive Warner franchises. Fantastic Beasts will be releasing its third episode next year (minus Johnny Depp), and then in 2022 Miller will bring the standalone vehicle The Flash – in which they will appear alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Michael Keaton is also on board to repeat his role as Batman. As Miller’s star continues to rise, the silence around the video only becomes more noticeable. Read more at The Daily Beast.
