Eagerness of people is in high altitude in viewing the star Thomas Grant Gustin as Barry Allen in “Flash”, as the fans are already counting days to the premiere of CW Television’s new series in spite of many obstacles in casting a superhero like this. CW Executive Mark Pedowitz confirmed that the star of the show would be Barry Allen, with an updated version of the original story. He also said that this version of the “Flash” would start as a reoccurring character of the second season of Arrow in the year 2013- 2014.
Pedowitz also told that American film and television writer, producer & director Greg Berlanti was also preparing the Flash movie for Warner Bros. Entertainment, and there would be no conflict on development between TV Series and Feature Film. It sounded like two development teams might be directly connected to each other.
Grant Gustin expressed to ComicBook.com that he thought to cover up the “Flash” history as much possible as he could. He thought that the assignment would be much tougher to him. But, after studying several volumes of CW series, provided by Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, really influenced him to work.
With an interview with ComicBook.com Grant Gustin told, “It was a little daunting when I got the role. It was a little daunting when I got the audition actually. I was excited to have the opportunity and didn’t… I mean, some things you’re like, I have a really good chance at this, and I didn’t necessarily think that about this role. But now that I have it I see why they wanted to go in this direction.
It’s kind of a different take on The Flash and I’m definitely starting to feel like I’m in the skin and I’m having a lot of fun. The writing is like they’ve already written in my voice so it’s easy enough to just kind of do it. And it’s just the most fun I’ve ever had, so it’s great.”
