Ezra Miller, the star of The Flash, is currently in danger, and fans are calling for Elliot Page to step in to replace him. Following a complaint from the parents of an 18-year-old, Miller has been placed on administrative leave and is no longer allowed to speak to the media, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
After choking an Icelandic fan in 2020, Miller (who uses they/them pronouns and is non-binary) became the subject of several controversies in the previous couple of years. Earlier this month, Rolling Stone revealed that Miller was hosting a 25-year-old woman and her children on their property in Vermont, where they kept firearms and marijuana about the house.
Fans of The Flash are demanding for DC to bring in Oscar-nominated Page, who has been in programs such as Tales of the City and The Umbrella Academy, to replace Miller as Barry Allen.
Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has not publicly commented on Miller's future as The Flash, optimistic fans offered their ideas. This week, Page's followers took to Twitter to demand that the studio hire him as a substitute for Miller.
Just wanted to remark that Elliot Page would make a fantastic Barry Allen in the event that the show ever needed to find a replacement for any reason.
I think Elliot Page as Flash would be an incredible role model and inspiration to anyone who identify as non-binary or gender non-conforming. He's a terrific actor and has a penchant for playing quick-witted characters. " I don't think his stature matters. The tiniest Flash possible."

The Flash, which ended production in October 2021, has already been completed by Miller. The release date has been moved back from 2022 to the summer of 2019. To no effect, Warner Bros., the production company behind The Flash, sought to assist Miller out, according to Deadline, in June. A source claims that Warner Bros. will likely not retain Miller on as The Flash in future films.
Even though Miller was not named in Variety's story, a source claimed that the actor "hopes to address the allegations at some point, but they have chosen to privately focus on their health and healing over the coming months." Miller has not issued an official statement in response to the allegations.
