Invincible Recasts Ezra Miller As D.A. Sinclair

Ezra Miller recast as D.A. Sinclair on Invincible Season 2

Respectfully, we informed you of this at a prior juncture. But since the whole internet seems in a tizzy about Ezra Miller getting recast as D.A. Sinclair on Invincible Season 2, we’re going to rereport the news here. Miller is no longer the voice of the character, perhaps after a series of controversies and crimes have led to making them persona no grata in the entertainment industry. Or perhaps they just weren’t available.

In fact, this recasting was well known prior to the season, and as mentioned when we broke down the return of the D.A. Sinclair plotline on March 23, we noted that Miller had voiced the diabolical scientist in Season 1, and Bauza was voicing in Season 2. The Miller/Bauza switch is far from the only switch in that plotline, either… Jonathan Groff played the voice of Rick Sheridan, one of D.A. Sinclair’s victims, in Season 1; Luke Macfarlane plays the voice in Season 2. And everyone loves Groff, so that was almost definitely down to a scheduling issue.

While it would be easy to point to the controversies with Miller including assault, abuse, weapons trafficking, and child trafficking, as pretty much every site on the internet has, it’s also possible that with a multi-year gap between seasons, Miller just wasn’t available. While we don’t know the exact production schedule of Invincible Season 2, it was renewed for Seasons 2 and 3 back in 2021. They’ve been working on these episodes for quite a while. As of now, neither Prime Video nor Miller’s reps have confirmed the reason for the switch.

Regardless, Bauza is an in-demand voice actor who seems to be a talented mimic. He made his debut on Season 2, Episode 7 “I’m Not Going Anywhere.” He now plays Sinclair, a scientist who has created Reanimen, a race of super-strong cyborgs composed of dead flesh who can go toe-to-toe with Invincible (Steven Yeun), and presumably other characters as well. Sinclair is secretly working for the Global Defense Agency, and Cecil Stedman (Walton Goggins), something that will blow back on them in future storylines if the comics are any indication.

Miller currently has no projects upcoming after The Flash tanked in theaters last year. And also since all those crimes.
