Flash S2 To Explore The Multi-Verse

With the first season finale for The CW’s “The Flash” airing tonight, the show’s star Grant Gustin has offered a tease for what’s to come next season, saying that it looks like the multiverse concept used heavily in the DC Comics world will be coming to “The Flash” next season.

Gustin tells TV Guide:

“What’s fun about this show is that there’s going to be multiple timelines as we move forward. I think we’re going to start showing Earth-One and Earth-Two in the near future. There will be kind of different dimensions going on.”

Co-Star Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco on the show, adds:

“It gets a little Rubik’s Cube-y in terms of keeping consistency between all these timelines and whatnot, but the writers have their stuff together. If I were to trust anyone, it would be them.”

Gustin has also spoken about the upcoming “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” spin-off series which will share the same screen universe as that of “Arrow” and “The Flash”. There’s already been crossovers between “Arrow” and “Flash” this past season, and Gustin tells Buzzfeed that we can expect more integration of the three shows in the future:

“I’m on Flash, but as far as a lot of those other characters are concerned, they’re just on three TV shows at one time, which is really cool. Wentworth [Miller, who plays Captain Cold] and Dominic [Purcell, who plays Heat Wave] are on Legends, but they’ll be on Arrow and Flash, too. It’s like a revolving door for all three shows.”

Finally, a new piece in Variety on the show’s producer also asked him about the chances of The CW’s “The Flash” and his upcoming CBS “Supergirl” series crossing over. For now, it looks like that won’t happen as CBS has no interest in it:

“The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves. I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see it. I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.”
