DC fandom seems convinced that the DC Extended Universe has reached the point of a reboot as news emerged that The Flash star Ezra Miller is reportedly no longer a sought-out actor for DC film projects. The speedster movie from IT director Andy Muschietti is set for a 2023 release and whiles its fate is in limbo, discussion on what strategy the new boss David Zaslav should prefer has social media riled up.
Miller’s erratic behavior since their Hawaii arrest and the recent grooming allegation has cost Warner Bros. Discovery heavily, enough to put the upcoming DC film The Flash in DOA category (Dead on Arrival). With the rising dissent among fans asking for their removal, Deadline reported the studio will not work with the actor after The Flash for any DC project and the decision is immutable even if Miller’s controversies come to a halt or continue to that matter.
Currently, there are no plans for Ben Affleck’s Batman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel in the DCEU, not unless the studio revert its course correction decision and greenlights the Snyderverse. Nonetheless, fans on social media are convinced this is the nail in the coffin to the once set out DC Universe. Some even pitching that Matt Reeves‘ Batman universe should take over for a fresh start. Readers can check out reactions below.
Reboot the DCEU.

I’m not sure if I want a whole DCEU reboot because that means losing out on Black Canary, Batgirl, Blue Beetle etc

Honestly, for DCEU, release any movie that's left on the slate that's literally being filmed right now and then call it quits.
Let Reeves continue his Batman universe, Todd Phillips to do his Joker stuff and wait 5-10 years on a DC film universe reboot. It's the only move left.

I don't want to hear another WORD about this whole Ezra Miller thing meaning WB "will" reboot the DCEU or "should" reboot the DCEU.
It's called RECASTING. It's a thing. You should read up on it.
It'll happen with Amber Heard, and it'll happen with Ezra Miller.

What DC really need to do is completely reboot the DCEU and focus on entirely different characters in order disassociate itself from the previous version of the DCEU, including a completely different version of the Justice League. Namely, the Justice League International. pic.twitter.com/lJ3Zn0k20y

#RestoreTheSnyderVerse is the BEST option for @wbd. If they want to scrap the DCEU & reboot,do a 2 movie finale with JL2-3 & Reboot.If you wanna continue the current DCEU…make JL2-3 and just continue. Of the core members of the Trinity, I hate to say it but Ezra is recast'able. pic.twitter.com/RVVS0HewvE

People really are too reactionary on the internet, the DCEU is fine, people outside of social media won't care about these scandal's.
This is a transitional previous for the DCEU , and a hard reboot would fuck everything up for everyone.thank god Twitter people don't matter.

The only ones left are Momoa and Gal Gadot along with Michael Keaton, Black Canary, Black Adam, Blue Beetle, Batgirl etc.

Well, since it’s inevitable that the DCEU is most likely gonna reboot (and any chances of restoring the Snyderverse are officially gone), I’m gonna start my own fancast for a rebooted DCEU. Definitely gonna hav some fun with this one. pic.twitter.com/agPoLz0Haq

Prior to the controversies, Miller had a secure future in DCEU even making a cameo as the speedster in HBO Max’s Peacemaker finale. With The Flash’s role also in the dark, Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are the only characters from the 2017’s Justice League that the studio is currently interested in moving forward. And the Aquaman franchise also has its own problem to deal with due to calls for Amber Heard‘s replacement since the Johnny Depp case concluded.
What’s more, The Flash has also put the Batgirl project up in the air. Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl were the new generations of DC superheroes set takeover Superman and Batman’s place. A Blue Beetle project is currently in production as well with massive support since its comic-accurate suit reveal donned by Xolo Maridueña.
It seems like nothing is certain until The Flash hits theatres on 23 June 2023.
