Despite the controversy surrounding the actor, the director of The Flash (2023) has stated that Ezra Miller shouldn’t be replaced if a sequel happens.

Miller plays Barry Allen (AKA The Flash) in the DCU, but last year, they were arrested twice in Hawaii - once for disorderly conduct and harassment, and the second time for second-degree assault. These weren’t the only incidents that the actor was involved in, either - also in 2022, they were charged with felony burglary after they allegedly stole bottles of alcohol from a Vermont home.

Take a look at the trailer for The Flash (2023) below.

There was a time where it wasn’t clear if Warner Bros. might end up cancelling The Flash or replacing Miller as a result of these incidents, but the movie is still on track to release next month, and initial reactions have been very positive. Director Andrés Muschietti also previously stated that working with Miller was “probably one of my best experiences working with an actor, ever”.

Now, as The Playlist reports, speaking on an upcoming episode of The Discourse podcast, Muschietti has made his stance on Miller’s future as The Flash clear - he believes that they should keep their role.

“If [a sequel] happens, yes,” he said. “I don’t think there’s anyone that can play that character as well as they did. The other depictions of the character are great, but this particular vision of the character, they just excelled in doing it. And, as you said, the two Barrys – it feels like a character that was made for them.”

Producer Barbara Muschietti then said: “In principal photography, Ezra was brilliant and the most committed and the most professional. Ezra gave everything for this role – physically, creatively, emotionally. They were absolutely supreme.”

The Flash is set to release in cinemas on 16 June.
