Henry Allen will look very different in the upcoming The Flash movie. Warner Bros. has just confirmed that Loudermilk star Ron Livingston will take over the role after Billy Crudup's departure.

Deadline had reported that Livingston has been cast as the new Henry Allen in the Ezra Miller film. Interestingly, the official Warner Bros. Twitter account confirmed the news by sharing a screenshot of the report and welcoming Livingston to the project.

"We are excited to welcome Ron Livingston to the cast of The Flash," the caption reads along with the hashtag #TheFlashMovie.


It was previously reported that Crudup would have to exit the film due to conflicts with another project, which is confirmed to be Apple TV+'s The Morning Show. Crudup had previously played Henry Allen in the theatrical cut of Justice League and the Snyder Cut.

The Flash will also star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen and Kiersey Clemmons as Iris West. Although Clemmons was initially expected to appear in the theatrical cut of Justice League, her scene had been removed. Luckily, the scene, which features Barry saving Iris from the car crash, has been restored in the Snyder Cut.


Crudup is not the only previously-confirmed star who will no longer appear in The Flash. Ray Fisher had also revealed that his Justice League character Victor Stone will no longer be a part of Barry's standalone film.

The Flash has long been delayed due to several factors. The project initially struggled to keep a director before Andy Muschietti signed on to helm the movie. Although the film was supposed to begin production as early as 2017, it was pushed back repeatedly through the years. It is now expected to start filming in April.

The Flash is currently scheduled for release on November 4, 2022.
