Dylan O’Brien replaces Ezra Miller as The Flash in an incredible piece of art following a recent rumor floating around that was eventually debunked.
With Ezra Miller’s recent legal trouble, some DC fans have wondered how Warner Bros. would deal with the situation. A rumor then started circulating that the studio was looking to recast The Flash role with Dylan O’Brien stepping into the yellow boots. O’Brien is best known for starring in MTV’s Teen Wolf and leading the Maze Runner franchise, with many fans seeing him as a good fit for a few different superhero roles.
The Dylan O’Brien rumor was eventually debunked, with Ezra Miller’s The Flash on track to hit theaters next summer. While O’Brien might not actually be replacing Miller as The Flash, new fan art from digital artist Spdrmnkyxxiii shows us what that looks like in another reality:
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso, and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
The Flash opens on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding Ezra Miler’s future in the DC Extended Universe, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
