Read on to find out who plays The Flash:
Glee's Grant Gustin has landed the key role of The Flash/Barry Allen in The CW’s backdoor pilot and potential Flash spinoff, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Gustin will play the iconic comic book character and appear in three episodes of The CW’s Arrow — eight, nine and 20 — the latter of which will serve as the backdoor pilot for a potential spinoff Flash series.
The potential Flash spinoff will be an origin story similar to what producers did with Stephen Amell starrer Arrow.
"When we first meet Barry Allen, he’s just a forensic scientist … an ordinary man," Kreisberg told reporters in July when the project was first aounced. The character, like Amell’s vigilante, will be grounded in reality and as realistic as possible. The first two episodes will see the character in Queen’s home of Starling City, with the 20th providing a window to see Barry in The Flash’s world.
