As the controversies surrounding actor Ezra Miller continue to add up, many fans are anxious to know what will happen with his character The Flash. He’s a staple of the DCEU and it was expected that he’d be appearing in many more films in the coming years. But knowing the allegations against Ezra Miller, not to mention several arrests, everyone knows that many other actors have been canceled for far less. With that in mind, we’ve learned that Warner Bros is considering their options when it comes to replacing Ezra Miller.
It’s unclear how many actors have topped WB’s list to replace Ezra Miller as The Flash. However, one such name that a source close to the situation has informed us about is Dylan O’Brien. The 30-year-old actor is known for roles in both television and film, including the MTV series Teen Wolf. He also played the lead character in Love and Monsters.
Of course, fans have their own picks for who could be the next Flash. One popular choice is actor Grant Gustin. He’s an easy choice because he already played a version of The Flash for The CW’s Arrowverse. Having said that, it would potentially also be difficult to transition Grant Gustin from the Arrowverse to the DCEU. Though it isn’t like those respective continuities haven’t already crossed over.
In any case, it might be best to go with someone new like Dylan O’Brien for replacing Ezra Miller. Although it still remains a mystery how such a change will fit into the DCEU’s narrative. With Warner Bros Discovery eager to have an overhaul of the property, however, there could be any number of changes that would allow it to work. As such, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with Ezra Miller and what Warner Bros’ ultimate decision on the matter is.
Fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for further updates on The Flash, any potential recasts, and Ezra Miller’s own situation as we have them.
