Joining Arrow season two as Barry Allen aka The Flash, Grant Gustin has shared a few thoughts on his character...

Glee's Grant Gustin (now there's some pleasing alliteration for a Monday morning), recently announced as the actor to play Arrow's Barry Allen, has shared some thoughts on his character's transformation into The Flash. 

Speaking to E! Online, the self-described comic book fan and Arrow "fanboy" said his version of Barry Allen is to be "up-and-coming in [his] field. He's not going to be The Flash immediately, obviously. We're going to see Barry Allen first in two episodes and then he'll come back later as The Flash."

Given Arrow's no-superpowers rule until now, the arrival of The Flash marks something of a departure for the new series, we assume. The powers are all part of the fun according to Gustin, "I didn't realise before I started doing all my research that he can actually time travel, he can run so fast. I think that'd be a really fun thing to play with on the show is him kind of going to different times and experimenting with that. That'd be fun".

Has he tried on the red suit yet? Not as far as we know, though Gustin did confirm "I would imagine, when The Flash comes he'll be in a pretty traditional Flash costume. That's kind of what I've caught wind of."
