The Flash Actress Gets Honest About Ezra Miller's Controversies

The Flash star Ezra Miller has been involved in numerous controversies in the past couple of years. During that time, the release of the film was put into question, especially with some of the legal charges that resulted from it and the potential PR dilemma that the film might have on its press tour.

However, despite all of that, the movie is still set for release this summer. Miller has also released a statement with a promise that they are going to address their mental health issues. Earlier this week, DC Studios co-chief James Gunn declared the film "one of the greatest superhero movies ever made."

Speaking recently with The Hollywood Reporter during a red carpet premiere event, Kiesey Clemons, who plays Iris West in the film, was asked about her thoughts regarding Gunn's recent compliment. "I did, and he said very nice things," she said with a smile.

The actress also shared her experience working on the film and expressed her hope that the audience will still check out despite the headlines that it is getting from the controversies of its lead actor.

She added, "I had a great time. I’ve known Ezra for years and I loved working with Andy [Muschietti]. Despite everything, we had a really great time filming and we did make a really great movie. I hope that despite [all the headlines], people really enjoy the movie because what James said is true. I believe what he said and I think it’s absolutely correct."

Clemons was also asked to address her thoughts about her co-star's recent controversies where she admitted that it was "absolutely" tough for her to watch.

"And what people forget is that a lot of people go through that but they don’t do it with the whole world watching. Although it comes with the territory, it’s really unfair and has been hard watching that," she explained.

Earlier this week, Gunn and fellow DC Studios chief Peter Safran addressed Miller's status in the DCU where they played coy about his future.

"Ezra is completely committed to their recovery. We are fully supportive of that journey right now," Safran said. He also acknowledged that the actor could return although they haven't made a decision.

While Miller's future in the DCU is still uncertain and their controversies have not affected the film, all attention now is to look forward on its release in just a couple of months and hopefully, the hype does live on.
