    Ezra Miller’s Role In ‘Invincible’ Season 2 Officially Recast Due To Controversies

    Following a string of scandals and controversies, Ezra Miller has been replaced from Prime Video’s ‘Invincible‘, where Miller voiced the character of Sinclair, a troubled scientist who turned humans into robots.

    The series, which is available to stream on Prime Video, released a new episode where, surprisingly, Sinclair’s voice was played by Eric Bauza, whose other voice credits include ‘X-Men ’97‘ and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’.

    This comes after a lot of speculation about Ezra’s role in ‘The Flash‘ but director Andy Muschietti said that he had no plans to recast Miller in future iterations.

    “We have a lot of empathy in general for people who need help, and especially in mental health issues,” Muschietti said, “That’s why they are taking the necessary steps to deal with their recovery, and we support them in that.”

    Miller came under fire in April 2020 after a video of them choking a female fan outside of a club in Reykjavik, Iceland, went viral.

    In the past, they have been detained for alleged criminal behavior and harassment, in addition to charges of assault, abuse, and child grooming. Due to plea agreements Miller has reached with several states, some of the accusations against them have been withdrawn. In a statement, the actor expressed regret for their actions in 2022 and mentioned that they had started “ongoing treatment” to deal with “complex mental issues.”

    “Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller says. “I want to apologise to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behaviour. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
