Grant Gustin Reveals He’s Been Talking To James Gunn

The Flash Season 9 Episode 13: Recap & Ending Explained

CW’s Arrowverse gave rise to plenty of shows, but arguably the best among them was ‘The Flash,’ which last year concluded its ninth and final season. Grant Gustin portrayed the Scarlet Speedster for almost 10 years, and he is well known to be among the best live-action versions of the character.

Since Flash himself is one of the most popular characters in DC comics, plenty of fans have been wondering whether he will be included in the newly rebooted Gunn’s & Safran’s DCU.

DCEU did have its Flash, portrayed by the highly scandalous Ezra Miller. The character eventually got its own movie, adapting the famous ‘Flashpoint’ storyline in which Miller’s Flash supposedly resets the timeline completely changing some vital details in his universe. The movie was met with mixed reactions, and it was one of the final flops that DCEU had.

Gunn never made any mention of whether Flash will be included in the DCU but he and Gustin have shown interest in collaborating with each other recently. The actor expressed his willingness to reprise the role when asked by a fan at a convention. Gunn, on the other hand, expressed his interest on Threads. However, Gustin clarifies for The Wrap that the decision is not up to him and no official discussions have taken place yet, he did talk to James Gunn but the two never actually met and all of their conversations were limited to ‘Superman.’

Like, we’ve never talked about Flash. We’ve talked, just like, I’m a huge Superman fan. I’ve always been a Superman fan, since I was a kid. So I’m just really excited about the movie. And I’m excited about David’s casting.

It seems unlikely however that Gunn will include Flash in his line-up anytime soon, however, as the fans are still reeling from the latest live-action speedster. But who knows? Have something to add? Let us know in the comments below!
