"I think that Eric Bauza is an immense talent and I am loving working with him," Kirkman says

Previously over the Easter weekend, Prime Video’s animated series Invincible replaced troubled actor Ezra Miller as the voice actor for the character D.A. Sinclair, for the animated show’s second season. Miller had previously lent their voice to portray Sinclair in a single episode during the show’s first season.

In a new interview with Variety, Invincible showrunner and series creator Robert Kirkman explained the reasoning for Miller’s recasting.

“Like we saw with the Rick Sheridan role that was played by Jonathan Groff in Season 1 and Luke Macfarlane in Season 2 and similar to Game of Thrones when you have a cast that’s this large and you’re recording in different times, sometimes availabilities are going to shift and recasting is going to be necessary,” Kirkman said.

Kirkman added: “I think it’s going to be something that’s going to happen from time to time with this show. I think that Eric Bauza is an immense talent and I am loving working with him, it’s a real opportunity to work with somebody that is so experienced in animation and has the skills and wealth of experience that he has.”

Kirkman is obviously spinning and citing Miller’s so-called “availability” but, out of curiosity, what was Miller doing, besides getting into trouble, that he was so busy that he can do a voiceover in a recording booth or send an audio file via email?

Regardless, Kirkman threw in a final zinger at the end of the interview and said: “And I hope that Warner Bros. figures out a way to release the Coyote vs. Acme movie.”

Along with losing the role in Invincible, it should come as no surprise that Ezra Miller won’t be playing Barry Allen in the new DC Universe from DC Studios. There has been speculation that Arrowverse actor and fan favorite Grant Gustin could possibly reappear as the Flash in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s rebooted DC Universe.

Invincible Season 2 is currently airing on Amazon Prime.
