RUMOR: Grant Gustin to Cameo in ‘The Flash’
The multiverse is a vast and ever-expanding concept that allows creators limitless potential when it comes to developing a story. With an infinite amount of chances, you are not bound by the predetermined choices made by another creator and forge your own path forward as you see fit. With this concept, creators are able to write stories for everyone and allow people who may not have been interested before a new gateway into this universe via a new and fresh take on a popular character. Exploring this concept in film is a whole new ballpark when pre-existing characters can be brought together for a really interesting experience.
A new report from the Illuminerdi states that Grant Gustin is set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming film, The Flash. For those who’ve been living under a rock for quite some time, Grant Gustin has played Barry Allen since a brief appearance on Arrow that served as a backdoor pilot for his owns series. This wouldn’t be the first time the two flashes had met, previously colliding during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event on the CW in which the two met for a brief period in which the two shared a brief, befuddled conversation as to how they met.
While it’s currently unknown just how long we’ll see Gustin in the film it opens the door for plenty of other cameos from that earth. The two meeting again, possibly with more time to spare, would allow Miller’s Barry to become more aware of what he’s become a part of. When we first met him, he wasn’t even the Flash and didn’t have an inkling of a clue what the Speedforce was. While it could just be a brief appearance, it’ll surely excite many fans of the series and peak the interest of many.
