A big rumour circulating online claims that DC’s upcoming movie, ‘The Flash’ starring Ezra Miller in the lead, will disrupt the current continuity of the films, thus erasing the event’s of director Zack Snyder‘s ‘Justice League‘.
According to a viral tweet, ‘The Flash’ will clean the slate of every Snyder film. “Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Justice League never happened now. Erased from continuity. [Ben] Affleck and [Henry] Cavill are both gone,” read the tweet.

According to a recent Reddit post, Miller replied to a DM of a fan expressing concern about the upcoming film. In his response, Miller denied the claims and said, “No power or force in any known megaverse would or could ever erase Zack Snyder’s mighty wrkz. You can take that quote. Take that to the bank, to the press, to the schools, to the military, and the other pillar of capitalism I’m forgetting cause of that thing where if you try to think of a group of things you always forget one of them (sic).”
