Ezra Miller cosplayed as a sexy version of Nintendo character Toadette during the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. The actor has been working in Hollywood for some time, first earning praise for his unnerving performance in Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, though he gained more mainstream attention for roles in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and Trainwreck. However, the actor's star skyrocketed when he joined Warner Bros' DC movie franchise as Barry Allen aka. The Flash in 2014.
He's since debuted as the Scarlet Speedster in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, had a cameo in Suicide Squad, and joined the titular superhero team in Justice League. Warner Bros. is also developing a solo The Flash movie, which found a new pair of directors earlier this year and looks to be moving forward. In addition to the DC universe, Miller is also part of another major Warner Bros. franchise: Harry Potter. Miller co-starred in 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and will return to the role of Credence Barebone later this year in The Crimes of Grindelwald.
In order to promote the Fantastic Beasts sequel at Comic-Con, Warner Bros. brought out the cast of The Crimes of Grindelwald for a portion of their two-hour panel. As panel moderator Aisha Taylor introduced the cast, Miller unveiled his cosplay for this year's Comic-Con: A sexy version of Nintendo character Toadette. Fans in Hall H shared a number of photos of Miller's costume. Take a look:

This isn't the first time Miller has attended one of his Comic-Con panels in full cosplay. In 2017, the actor appeared on the panel for Justice League in full costume as Edward Elric from manga series Fullmetal Alchemist. The previous year, Miller wore what appeared to be a Lord of the Rings inspired costume. Further, the actor is an enthusiastic fan of superheroes, Harry Potter and many other kinds of geeky media. So, as a fan himself, it's no surprise to see him don a cosplay just like many of those in the crowd at Comic-Con.
Fans of the actor will get to see him next in The Crimes of Grindelwald, which hits theaters later this year amid controversy surrounding Johnny Depp's involvement portraying Gellert Grindelwald. It's unclear of Miller's Credence will appear in further Fantastic Beasts movies, though Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling have a total of five films planned for the series. Additionally, Miller's DC solo entry looks to be moving forward, and The Flash movie may release in 2020, which gives fans of the actor's work plenty to look forward to in the coming years. Plus, it paves the way for even more opportunities for Miller to cosplay at future Comic-Con events.
