The Flash star Ezra Miller has commented on the reports that suggest the solo will erase the Snyderverse.
A bevy of rumors over the weekend (reliable insider MyTimetoShine) suggested that Ezra Miller’s The Flash would “erase” the Snyderverse entirely due to Barry Allen’s time-traveling abilities. This would essentially wipe away Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. Wonder Woman would obviously stay on board in this scenario as the films have been critical darlings for the DC Extended Universe. The erasure would see the soon-to-be-introduced Supergirl taking on Superman’s mantle and a new Justice League, potentially with Michael Keaton’s Batman in tow.
Fans took to social media to voice their opinion on the film wiping away Zack Snyder’s creative efforts, which essentially propped up the DCEU in its current position. The responses have overall been mixed but have caused quite the flurry. So much so that Ezra Miller responded to the reports that dominated the news cycle over the weekend.
In his response, Ezra Miller maintained that nothing could ever erase Zack Snyder’s contributions to the DCEU. While it does seem likely that The Flash will at least play around with the established Snyderverse and likely push it aside to create a more cohesive universe, Miller’s comments seem wholly positive.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint comic storyline, which followed The Flash 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. It is currently unknown how much inspiration the upcoming Ezra Miller film will take from the comic.
The upcoming solo film will star Ezra Miller reprising their role as Barry Allen from Justice Leauge joined alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Ron Livingston replacing Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Sasha Calle debuting as Supergirl, and the return of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as their versions of Batman.
The Flash is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
