As Miller continues to be embroiled in controversy, fans pick a replacement
Miller has been caught up in a number of scandals in recent years such as grabbing a fan by the throat, being arrested in Hawaii for drunken and aggressive behaviour and, most recently, being filmed seemingly threatening to knockout a shop worker who asked for a selfie.
Now it appears as though it may have been one headline too many for Miller as fans on social media are now tipping The Umbrella Academy and Juno star to replace him as Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash.
Just want to take this moment to say Elliot Page would make a great Barry Allen, in case there's ever a need to, you know, cast a new Flash, for whatever reason. pic.twitter.com/61zGO2GKp1

I feel like some people are just fancasting Elliot Page as The Flash because they like him and wanna get rid of Ezra Miller. But I genuinely think he could pull it off. pic.twitter.com/iVm13PCv60

It is currently thought that although Miller’s scenes for The Flash movie have already been filmed – with principal photography taking place between April-October 2021 and release scheduled for 2023 – the 29-year-old will have their scenes cut even if no more allegations are brought forward.
This update came shortly after Miller was accused of grooming an underaged fan. A 12-year-old and their mother filed for a restraining order and while the Justice League and Fantastic Beasts star continues to deny the claims, authorities have been struggling to locate the actor ever since.
Elsewhere, even if Page is ultimately overlooked for the role of the crimson comet, others have been putting forward plenty of other suggestions in the meantime – one of which has already played the role.
- Ezra Miller taunts police with cryptic tweet and then deletes social media as court struggles to locate actor
- Nick Kyrgios could face two years in prison over assault claims as ex-girlfriend speaks out
- Elliot Page may have just become the first person ever to like their passport photo
