Oooooooh… be still the DC fan within!
It looks like Barry Allen AKA The Flash has found his dad in the upcoming big screen outing.
Yes, actor Ezra Miller’s onscreen father, Henry Allen, will be played by Almost Famous star Billy Crudup.
However, even more interestingly is that DC Movies boss Geoff Johns said recently that the comics and movies will be closer related than many think and that there’ll be fun little connections.
So how’s this for a connection? Crudup played Dr Manhattan in Zach Snyder’s Watchmen movie and the current DC Rebirth storyline is bringing the Watchmen into the DC Universe and will very possibly connect Manhattan to Flash.
Oh, and The Comedian was played in Watchmen by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who also played Bruce’s dad, Thomas Wayne in Batman V Superman.
We think that’s pretty cool…
And just keeping the cool coming, John Wesley Shipp, who plays Henry on the Flash TV Show, is very happy about the casting too:
