Ron Livingston to play Henry Allen in DC's The Flash
Billy Crudup, who essayed the role of Henry Allen (the father of Barry Allen aka The Flash), in Justice League, recently exited the project over scheduling issues.
Actor Ron Livingston has been roped in to replace Billy Crudup in the upcoming Warner Bros' DCEU film The Flash.
Variety reported that Crudup, who essayed the role of Henry Allen, the father of Barry Allen aka The Flash, in Justice League (and Zack Snyder's Justice League), recently exited the project over scheduling issues.
Livingston will co-star Ezra Miller, who is playing the titular character, and Spanish actor Maribel Verdu, who will essay the role of Allen's mother.
Andy Muschietti of the It franchise will be helming the Warner Bros feature, which has been in works since 2016.
It was recently reported that actor Kiersey Clemons will be reprising her role as Iris West, the romantic interest of Allen, in the movie. Clemons had portrayed West in Justice League, but her role was cut by director Zack Snyder back in 2017 before he turned the film over to Joss Whedon. Her portions were restored in Zack Snyder's Justice League that premiered last week.
Christina Hodson has penned the latest draft of the script that sees Flash go back in time to prevent the murder of his mother, an act that proves to have unintended consequences for his timeline.
The Flash will also feature actors Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, reprising Bruce Wayne/Batman, as well as actor Sasha Calle as Supergirl. The film is slated for release in theatres worldwide on November 4, 2022.
