Randolph said that a ‘new Justice League formed,’ as ‘Supergirl is [the] new Superman’ and original Batman star Michael ‘Keaton working w/ Black Canary, picks Batgirl as new Batman.’

She added, ‘This is new DC, let’s be open minded & give it a fair shot.’

The site also quoted the Twitter account MyTimeToShineHello, which presented information that dovetailed with Randolph’s, noting that ‘Affleck and Cavill are both gone.

‘I don’t usually tweet about DC stuff but I [have] a friend who have seen The Flash and the movie will erase every movie [director Zack] Snyder has done,’ a tweet from the account on Saturday read. ‘Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Justice League never happened now. Erased from continuity.’
