With Ezra Miller’s future as The Flash uncertain, X-Men star Lucas Till steps in and becomes the Scarlet Speedster in a new image.
Ezra Miller has been The Flash since 2014, making his debut as Barry Allen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before reprising the role in Suicide Squad and Justice League. The actor was also set to star in a film focusing on The Flash, but it has gone through multiple hiccups. Spider-Man: Homecoming writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are currently on board to direct The Flash’s first cinematic solo outing. However, recent reports suggest Ezra Miller may be out of the role due to creative differences. Ezra Miller is reportedly writing his own version of The Flash movie with famed comic book writer Grant Morrison.
Unless he renewed it, Ezra Miller’s holding deal for The Flash expired last month and DC fans are already thinking about who could be the next Barry Allen. Lucas Till is one name that has been floated around among fans. Of course, Lucas Till is also no stranger to comic book projects, having played Havok in three X-Men films. Now, digital artist Dalton Barrett has shared an awesome piece that imagines Lucas Till as The Flash. You can see Lucas Till replace Ezra Miller as The Flash in the artwork below.
Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen was last seen in Justice League. The film ended with the character racing into action after defeating Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons with the help of the other Justice League heroes.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
