Maribel Verdú has landed the mother of a role…
The 50-year-old Spanish actress will star in Warner Bros.’ The Flash film.
Verdú, best known for her roles in Y Tu Mama Tambien and Pan’s Labyrinth, will portray Barry Allen’s mother in the upcoming Warner Bros. DC standalone movie.
Billy Crudup, due to a schedule conflict on the second season of Apple’s The Morning Show, won’t be reprising his role as Flash’s father.
Ezra Miller will be playing Allen/The Flash again. Cameras will roll in the spring to summer in London.
Andy Muschietti is directing off a screenplay written by Christina Hodson.
While the plot is under wraps, The Flash reportedly involves alternate dimensions with Allen trying to save his mother from being murdered. Also making cameos are alternate dimension Batmans, Michael Keaton from the 1980s Warner Bros. films and Ben Affleck from the millennium ones.
