DC fans discuss if Warner Bros. should reboot DCEU amid report that Ezra Miller won’t be cast as The Flash again

DC fans discuss if Warner Bros. should reboot DCEU amid report that Ezra Miller won’t be cast as The Flash again

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.

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.
