You may have been expecting that Grant Gustin would portray The Flash on the big screen, since he currently is on CW’s newly premiered series. However, it is The Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller that has been cast to wear the suit in 2018.
The Flash, aka Barry Allen, is also expected to appear in the new Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, which is set to hit cinemas in March, 2016.
The CW just launched The Flash last week, and it was the most watched telecast of any CW series since 2009! In fact, the only series premiere to ever beat it was The Vampire Diaries.
We were kind of hoping this would push studio bosses to consider Gustin for the role on the big screen, as we’d love to see TV and Film blend together with their successful DC Comics properties. Doesn’t look like it will be happening this time around however.
