Fans think that former The Flash co-director John Francis Daley is throwing shade at Ezra Miller over a recently-surfaced video that appears to show the actor choking a woman.
Throughout the course of pre-production, a number of directors have joined and subsequently departed Ezra Miller’s first cinematic solo outing as The Flash. Among those directors were Spider-Man: Homecoming writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who reportedly left the project over “creative differences” with Ezra Miller regarding the tone of the film.
Since yesterday, Ezra Miller has been in the middle of a controversy due to a recently-surfaced video that appears to show the actor choking a woman and throwing her on the ground. According to a source at the bar where the incident took place, The Flash star was escorted from the premises following the altercation. Now, fans are thinking that John Francis Daley is throwing shade at Ezra Miller by seemingly referring to his experience working with The Flash star through a Twitter post that simply says, “creative differences.”

It certainly does seem petty for him to allude to something people already know about, in response to the recent news surrounding Ezra Miller.

Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie was on track to begin production next month, but its start date will likely be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint storyline. For those unaware, the Flashpoint comic book storyline followed The Flash as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
Ezra Miller was last seen as The Flash in Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
