Fantastic Beasts star Ezra Miller turned up to Comic-Con as sexy Toadette
Fantastic Beasts star Ezra Miller turned up to Comic-Con dressed as Mario Kart character Toadette.
The queer actor, who is best known for his roles as The Flash in Justice League and Credence in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was in his element at the event.
Miller rocked up to Warner Bros’ Fantastic Beasts panel event rocking the skimpy pink outfit, complete with a giant mushroom head.
The actor managed to upstage the film’s other stars with the outfit, posing for a photo with Eddie Redmayne – and standing out gloriously in group photos from the panel.
A photo from an event later the same day suggests Miller acquired some fellow Toads at the event.
The star has a long record of being his best self at Comic-Con, with previous outfit triumphs include Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist and Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.
Of course the Toadette look is better than the time John Barrowman turned up to a Doctor Who panel in a blue tutu and declared himself the “transgender TARDIS”.
Miller previously spoke about what the Harry Potter franchise had meant to him growing up.
He said: “I was teased as a youngster with strange interests, with a speech impediment. I was an easy target.”
“When I started going through puberty and having confusing feelings about wanting to kiss people – not all of them being girls, there were moments in my life where I felt ostracized from my contemporaries or my peers.
“Those times were very painful, but also very formative because they prompt us to step outside of society and to look at the world with fresh eyes, which is why I think so many of our great minds have been ostracised folks and disenfranchised people.”
“In those years of bullying I would come home and listen to Harry Potter for a few to several hours every single day while I ate instant ramen.”
The actor came out as queer in 2012 in an interview with Out Magazine.

Despite subsequently landing roles in major franchises, Miller revealed he was told at the time that he’d “made a mistake.”
Miller told Shortlist: “When I gave that interview, I was told by a lot of people I’d made a mistake.
“Folks in the industry, folks outside the industry. People I’ve never spoken to. They said there’s a reason so many gay, queer, gender-fluid people in Hollywood conceal their sexual identity, or their gender identity in their public image.
“I was told I had done a ‘silly’ thing in … thwarting my own potential to be a leading man.
“I was given a lot of stern talking-tos.”
He added: “I didn’t think I’d done anything wrong, though there have been moments of doubt as a result of those conversations. What they said was, in fact, rubbish, as you might say. We are the ones. It’s up to us to manifest the world we want to exist in. But we’re ready. Humans are ready.”
Miller is set to lead a solo Flash movie off the back of 2017’s Justice League, but the release has been repeatedly delayed after multiple creative departures. The film does not yet have a release date.
