Fans have taken to social media to call for Warner Bros Pictures to replace Ezra Miller with Grant Gustin in the upcoming Flash movie.
This all comes after there have been reports that Warner Bros had opted to pause all of Miller’s upcoming WB projects, which seemingly include The Flash movie.
Miller has been in a lot of hot water of late due to his erratic and worrying behaviour in bars in Hawaii.
I’ve already gone over what he’s been up to over there in other articles.
To cut many articles short, Miller’s been a nuisance in Hawaii and had been arrested for anti-social behaviour in bars over there.
This has sparked calls online from fans who want to see Grant Gustin take over the role of Barry Allen in Andy Muschietti’s Flash movie.
Interestingly enough, we did reveal that Grant was going to cameo in the movie.
Seems as though fans want him in the movie for more than just a cameo!
Should Grant Gustin play Barry Allen in The Flash movie instead of Ezra Miller?

One user wrote: “I think the flash will be recast and re shot I’m told the studio have a great relationship with grant gustin and are working for a viable way to replace Ezra with grant. [sic]”
Another added: “They literally have Grant Gustin right there ….Use him![sic]”
“It Time for Grant Gustin to replace Ezra in the flash movie [sic],” said a third fan.
A fourth fan added: “Definitely understand that they already shot the film but any future projects should be shot with Grant Gustin.”
That fourth user has a really good point – they’ve already shot the movie, so it would be very expensive to bring Grant in to do reshoots as Barry Allen in the movie.
It just wouldn’t be economically viable for Warners to replace Miller with Gustin in The Flash movie.
However, they should really look at recasting the role should Miller’s worrying behaviour continue.
It’s since been revealed that Warner Bros has been holding emergency meetings to discuss what to do with Miller moving forward.
