A rumor did the rounds late last night which claimed that Warner Bros. was "considering" replacing The Flash star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen with Love and Monsters actor Dylan O'Brien. Despite the questionable source, the report picked up a bit of steam, prompting Variety's Adam B. Vary to reach out to the studio to see if there was any truth to it.
Shockingly, there isn't - although we wouldn't be surprised if Miller's tenure as The Scarlet Speedster is short-lived.
The troubled actor recently made headlines after being arrested (twice) in Hawaii for various scummy behavior. Last we heard, WB was not planning to take any immediate action, but there is mounting pressure for the studio to at least address the situation officially.
It's far too late to replace Miller for the upcoming movie, of course, but the nature of DC's take on the "Multiverse" and the Flashpoint storyline means another actor could potentially take over down the line.
The Fastest Man Alive's first solo outing was recently pushed back from Nov. 4, 2022 to June 23, 2023.
