The Flash star Kiersey Clemons has broken her silence on the troubling allegations against Ezra Miller.

Ezra Miller has been in the news for a number of incidents and is currently seeking treatment for complex mental health issues. DC Studios co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran recently showed their support for Miller and now The Flash star Kiersey Clemons has shared her thoughts about the recent controversies surrounding the 30-year old actor.

“What people forget is that a lot of people go through that but they don’t do it with the whole world watching,” Clemons told The Hollywood Reporter during a red carpet interview fo her new movie Somebody I Used to Know. “Although it comes with the territory, it’s really unfair and has been hard watching that.”

The Iris West actress went on to talk about her time shooting The Flash, which James Gunn has described as “one of the greatest superhero movies” of all time: I had a great time. I’ve known Ezra for years and I loved working with [director] 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.”

Warner Bros. recently moved up the release of The Flash to June 16, 2023. The movie is now hitting theaters one week after Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and two weeks before Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. It’s one of the final DC Comics movies arriving before James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe plans become a reality.

Warner Bros. Discovery already has a script for a potential sequel to The Flash, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the man behind the two Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran did not discuss the Flash sequel during their DC Universe presentation.

Who else is attached to the Flash movie?

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen 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.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
