As Ezra Miller continues to swim in the soup he's landed himself in, rumor mills are churning that WB is considering replacing the actor with '1917' star George MacKay in 'The Flash' in the future. To add more fuel to the speculation, fan art of the British actor rocking a Flash costume similar to what Grant Gustin wears in the TV show of the same name has been doing the rounds.

At the time of writing, the studio has firmly maintained its stance that they would not recast Miller given the financial ramifications and that it will release in cinemas as planned, but there have been multiple reports of the actor being replaced in future installments, and on their part, fans have been pushing for Miller to be recast. While some felt Gustin who has starred as the titular character in eight seasons on The CW could be a worthy replacement, MacKay's version did get some approval as well.

"Recast. Ezra doesn’t have the right Flash look or attitude in the movies imo. That on top of their real-world choices. Give me a blonde guy who is even moderately good at bantering with the rest of the cast and I’ll be happy," one of the fans tweeted. "Grant Gustin is better," one of the tweets read.

This was seconded by some more fans. "Recast for sure. I would prefer someone like Lucas Till as the new Flash but that’s just personal preference," a tweet said.

"Recast. I never liked Ezra as the flash that much anyways. Now with all the drama he's caused, he's not worth keeping anyways. It only makes DC look worse if they choose to keep him," another opined.

"Recast Ezra with someone who has actually played the Flash very well…GRANT!!!!" one of the tweets said. "Recast didn't like Ezra from the jump." a fan opined. MacKay had some takers.

"Mackay, Erza’s adaptation was fine but finally seeing a comic accurate Barry would be cool," one of the tweets read.

Last month, Miller issued an official apology. “Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe, and productive stage in my life.” However, his latest run-in with trouble just has calls of replacing him in the much-awaited movie that much louder.
