Invincible Recasts Ezra Miller's Role in Wake of Actor's Controversies

Ezra Miller, the Flash and Fantastic Beasts star who became mired in controversy after a string of arrests and allegations in recent years, appears to have been quietly replaced in the second season of the Prime Video animated series Invincible.

Miller voiced the character in one episode in the first season of the adult animated series, but when Sinclair appeared in the March 28th episode, the character was voiced by Eric Bauza (X-Men ’97, Coyote vs. Acme).

Deadline has reached out to Prime Video for comment.

Miller, embattled star of The Flash and Fantastic Beasts, has been embroiled in multiple scandals. Last year, they pleaded guilty to unlawful trespassing in a burglary case in Vermont after cutting a plea deal ahead of the hearing. In 2022, Miller agreed to mental health treatment after a string of run-ins with the law.

Based on the Skybound/Image comic, from The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman, Invincible revolves around 18-year-old Mark Grayson, voiced by Steven Yeun, who’s just like every other guy his age—except his father is (or was) the most powerful superhero on the planet. Still reeling from Nolan’s (J.K. Simmons) betrayal in Season One, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear – that he might become his father without even knowing it.

Series also stars Sandra Oh, Zazie Beetz, Grey DeLisle, Chris Diamantopoulos, Walton Goggins, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Mantzoukas, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Kevin Michael Richardson and Seth Rogen.

Invincible is co-produced by Skybound Animation and Amazon MGM Studios. Kirkman, David Alpert, Catherine Winder, Simon Racioppa, Margaret M. Dean, Rogen, and Evan Goldberg executive produce. Helen Leigh and Walker serve as co-executive producers.

The recasting was first reported by Entertainment Weekly.
