The Flash is currently airing its second season on The CW, and he will even make a special appearance on Supergirl on Monday night, but fans of Gustin will never see him take The Flash to the big screen for an appearance in the Justice League films.
Zack Synder revealed why Grant Gustin’s Flash will not appear in the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film now in theaters. According to TV Guide, he said:
“I just don’t think it was a good fit. I’m very strict with this universe and I just don’t see a version where [Gustin’s The Flash would work]… that [tone is] not our world. Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multi-verse [idea], so it’s just not a thing that’s possible.”
Unlike Marvel’s crossing over of their television and big screen characters, fans of DC Comics will never see that happen in their universe. Ezra Miller is The Flash in the new film.
Would you have wanted to see Grant Gustin appear as The Flash in the new Batman v Superman film? Tell us what you think.
I just read the article about Jack Snyder. He is an arrogant and cocky guy I can’t like him. Jack Snyder and Ezra Miller are terrible. I think the Flash movie should have a great actor like Grant Gustin playing the Flash. I’m not going to watch Jack Snyder’s movie with Ezra Miller because there is only one Flash for me and that is Grant Gustin.
Grant Gustin should play the Flash because he is an amazing actor and we already love him as the flash. Like Spiderman was really good in Captain America and he didn’t match the tone. The flash is suppost to be funny. Spider-man was suppost to be funny and he was and it worked. Why cant the flash be the same.
This new Flash with Grant Gustin as Barry Allen is all to weak. He just running around getting beat up where ever he is. Also he just cant make up his mind about anything. Hes just weak, indecisive, and a bit silly. Jay Garrick as Flash was much tougher and better for my taste.
I want Grant Gustin to play the Flash in the new movie. He is awsome and a really great actor. I wish he was playing the part. 🙁
Fully honest, i’m glad that Grant isnät The Flash.
Reason 1: They already have their Amanda Waller, Deathshot, Capt. Boomerang in the tv universe and in the movie universe they’re played by different actors.
Reason 2: The tone doesn’t fit.
Reason 3: Let the writers of tv have their own creativity.
Reason 4: Ezra is far better actor than Grant and can carry his own movie.
I think DCM is being foolish. Part of the reason MCU works so well is that there IS synergy between their movies and TV shows. If Agents of SHIELD references events from Avengers 2 – I feel like I need to see Avengers 2 to be fully immersed in the storyline. To me, the DC TV shows are far better (and more fun) than their movies have been since Burton helmed Batman back in the 80s. I can see the concept of multiple universes at play – else why WOULDN’T Arrow and Flash know there’s a guy called Superman out… Read more »
I cant see anyone else playing the flash period!
Grant Gustin may not be a carbon-copy of Barry Allen’s description in the comics, but he is a much better actor for the job, and would provide the brightness necessary for the character. The Flash in the comics is a humourous and funny character who jokes around and adds a spot of brightness into the dark DC universe. So, yeah.
Y is DC …so obsessed with jack Snyder ….his movies …do not even make sense ….more over …his movies are alys dark….thrs no brightness
I Just seen Batman VS Superman and I would much prefer the CW Flash compared to the one they showed in the movie. He looks like a window licker compared to Grant.
Given the awful reviews, and the anticipated fall-out from that, Grant is probably quite happy to not be associated with what will probably be a deadend rebooted franchise. Unless there are big changes, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for a Flash movie.
Doesn’t really make a difference who plays the The Flash if things at DC stay the course. As long as they continue to hire Zack Snyder to direct major DC franchises like Superman, they will continue to produce a poor product. That’s where Marvel kicks their butts…they hire the right people for the job.
The only good DC comic tv show is iZombie. The others (arrow, flash, legends of tomorrow) are horrible and unwatchable. marvel did way better on their tv shows. orders of magnitude better.
Dude, the Flash and Arrow are amazing. Don’t try to deny it just because they are DC. They are great.
Yeah, the thing about DC, is that their movies are always “eh”, but their tv shows always do really well.
