Grant Gustin will play The Flash on CW's Arrow series

Sep. 13, 2013by: Niki Stephens

So neither of the guys that were rumored to be up for the part of The Flash/Barry Allen for CW's ARROW nabbed the role. Grant Gustin, the guy you see in the above photo did.

You may know Gustin from his time on the updated version of 90210 or GLEE. I'm sure we've got GLEE fans around here, can't say the same for The young actor said this about taking on the part, I'm unbelievably excited. I've been a lifelong fan of DC Comics, so I can’t be more honored and can’t wait to get started.

Gustin will be seen in episodes 8,9, and 20 with the last serving to launch a backdoor pilot for a potential FLASH spinoff. The character will start the first two episodes with Allen in "Queen's home of Starling City, with the 20th providing a window to see Barry in The Flash's world. Barry Allen is described a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante. "

ARROW co-creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg as well as director David Nutter will work on the spin-off. Geoff Johns will write the script. Season three of ARROW begins on October 9, 2013.

I never got in to Smallville and by the time I did, I'd missed so much, I wasn't motivated in making it a regular thing to watch. Think I started watching it from season 3 or 4...for a couple of seasons after that. The best thing by far, in my opinion about Smallville...was Arrow. You so know the guys behind Smallville wanted Batman instead...but never mind... Arrow was awesome. Where am I going with this? Well, it always bothered me that when they had the beginnings of their Justice

You so know the guys behind Smallville wanted Batman instead...but never mind... Arrow was awesome. Where am I going with this? Well, it always bothered me that when they had the beginnings of their Justice League group, when they walk away from that exploding Level 33.1 facility, Clark was walking in the centre like he had done all the effing work. Jeez, Arrow had the best scenes in that operation and as I recall Clark burst in to a room filled with kryptonite and was rendered useless. Anywayz... this new Arrow incarnation is also very good ... so good, I think DC should include it in to their DC cinematic universe. Given that this new Flash is a nobody, seems like they're going to keep this separate. WB's just don't have a clue...or so it would seem.

is it me...

Or does he looks like a young Matt Damon on this pic ?
Anyway, if they're going to ruin every major DC characters, like they did on Smallville... No thanks...
And it probably means no THE FLASH film, not in an upcoming JLA movie...

I love Arrow but they will ruin it if they don't keep the realism. They are moving it towards a new Smallville but it needs to stay gritty with no superpowers.

Kid Flash, maybe??

I really hate the CW and Arrow so this doesn't really affect me much, but as a comic fan I can't say I am pleased that they are hiring these kids and putting them into shows that mangle every little detail about the character they are playing. Arrow is a horrible show, Smallville started out good but turned into a teenagers wet dream of a soap opera. This has no chance of being any good. There will be no chance of us seeing a real Flash movie/Justice League version because of how horrible this

A CSI type series where one of the team member is actually a superhero might work... Or not.
Wherever the direction they are going to take with the character I'd be bummed out if John Wesley Shipp won't appear in an extended cameo role.

Wally West?

This guy isn't Barry Allen...maybe Wally West...but this is bad news bears if he's supposed to be Barry Allen...For me, this is the first major sign of trouble.

Haha, Hipster Douche Flash. I like that but yeah you're making a good point. Come to think of it, he suits better with Kid Flash.

He looks the part (maybe more Wally or Bart than Barry but we'll see), he's got that CW-ready pretty boy look but not annoyingly so.

I kind of wish he was more manly looking. Maybe the same age or a year or two younger than Arrow. Hopefully the get the character right and deliver us a kick ass Flash series.

And I think you mean Season 2, not season 3.
