He was one of the three rumored names the other week, now he’s confirmed – Grant Gustin is set to play DC superhero The Flash.
The former “Glee” star will take on the role of Barry Allen/The Flash in three episodes of the second season of The CW’s “Arrow”.
One of those episodes late in the season will serve as a backdoor pilot for a potential new show focusing on the character.
In this version, Allen is a Central City assistant police forensic investigator looking into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to his own past tragedy.
The character, which will start out an “ordinary man” according to the show runners, is also a comic book fan boy and obsessed with Green Arrow’s actions.
The new season of “Arrow” launches on October 9th.
