Gina Carano didn’t go down without a fight, nor did her loyal Cara Dune fans, resulting in #IStandWithGinaCarano and #WeLoveCaraDune trending online. The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau, Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin), Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand), Katee Sackhoff (Bo-Katan Kryze), and Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon) all showed various support to Carano following her departure from the Mouse House. Still, the Muay Thai fighter was ultimately let go from the Star Wars saga.

A New Flash?

Following a lengthy history of Miller reportedly hitting and choking numerous fans and bystanders, executives have now “hit pause” on The Flash (2023), Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021), and Fantastic Beasts franchise actor Ezra Miller to star in any upcoming projects from the major Hollywood studios.

In fact, many viewers are calling for Miller to be fired and replaced immediately:

Fans on social media are calling for TV Flash Grant Gustin to replace Ezra Miller as the film version of #TheFlash amid reports of studio friction with the embattled star.

Another user wrote:

The Flash started filming in April 2021 and Ezra choked that fan in April 2020 so it’s not like Warner Bros didn’t have time to recast before the film went into production. Instead they tried to sweep stuff under the rug and hide it when they should’ve addressed it head on.

Another Twitter user wrote:

So now that WB is supposedly taking action abt Ezra Miller, can they just bring in Grant Gustin as the DCEU Flash? He deserves better writing.

More about DC and The Flash

Reasoning? Reports suggest that Fisher’s blatant calling out of Warner Brothers’ mistreatment of actors of color during director Joss Whedon’s reign of his Justice League (2017) caused the actor to experience intolerable emotional damage.

Ray Fisher called out the mistreatment, and DC reportedly responded by sidelining his character in future projects, including The Flash (2022) and now Peacemaker.
