Grant Gustin will play the lightning-fast character also known as Barry Allen, and appear in three episodes of "Arrow" -- including the backdoor pilot.
Couldve been worse I suppose, but I seriously doubt this kid will be able to hold a TV show or potentially be cast in the JL movie. So much for tying the DC Tv and Movie universe together :/
I hope they're gonna make him blonde as Barry Allen should be. The idea that blonde men can be heroic and good is like anathema to the people who run hollywood, who almost always cast the blonde guy as the bad guy.
I'm gonna cry
Isn't he a little thin to be Flash?
Oh Arrow...don't ruin OTHER superheros in your wake.
so what is the flash movie before the justice league still happening or what? because the idea of a tv spinoff really deminishs all hope for me
Well they've already butchered superman, green arrow is on its way, im really not surprised. Just wondering how they are planning a future batman guest star.
Aint he starring in arrow for a couple of episodes....personally think it will ruin the show adding superpowers...i think people like it because of grounded reality of it...that it is plausiable
Hurray! Now I know I will never watch the show. Was going to start, but now... nah. I'd rather watch water boil than one of those Glee idiots.
Then youre missing out. He's only a support cast for like an episode. Arrow is still a good show.
I hope so. But never underestimate the power of a Glee idiot.
Arrow is an average tv show at best but in terms of it being linked to comic book mytho it sucks. I hope they never try to tie this universe and the DC movie one in the future together. Seriously DC characters in terms of casting have been terrible as of late. I mean GLEE star...really, thats as bad as casting Zac Efron in a Green Arrow movie.
"thats as bad as casting Zac Efron in a Green Arrow movie." Pleeeeease don't give them any ideas, because I can easily see this being true.
Arrow is a great TV show which takes an alternate adaptation on GA. GA is a comic book character with comic book tropes, trying to translate everything in fine detail to a live action tv show would be even more of a joke than you claim it to already be.
Who is saying they need to translate everything into "fine" detail. Hell even a moderate amount would of been good but Arrow doesn't even do that. It has an identity Crises, first it wants you to believe it's taken a plausible route for the show then they now want to add superheroes with actual powers.
