Lucas Till suits up as Wally West to replace Ezra Miller as The Flash in this new image.
Given The Flash star Ezra Miller‘s recent legal issues, some fans have expressed interest in seeing a new actor in the role as the DC Extended Universe’s Scarlet Speedster. One actor that some fans are considering is Lucas Till.
Lucas Till, whom many comic book movie fans will most recognize him as Havoc in X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past, and Apocalypse suits up as Wally West in this design from digital artist Subi Özil. Here, we get a glimpse at what could serve as a possible replacement for Ezra Miller as The Flash.

Will DC opt for Wally West?
Let’s be very clear, the situation regarding Ezra Miller is quite complicated. Although they are involved in numerous legal issues at this time, there are elements to the narrative that are still quite unclear, with the facts hopefully to be brought further into light soon. Whether or not this means anything regarding their future as Barry Allen, perhaps if DC wants to move on from their portrayal as The Flash, maybe Wally West is a good way to go moving forward. And maybe Lucas Till can be the new Scarlet Speedster in that regard.
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 is currently due to open on June 23, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the future of Barry Allen and the Justice League in the DCEU, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
