[TV] Grant Gustin Says Flash Will Have a Traditional Costume in Arrow Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 09.22.2013
When he gets it, anyway...
Grant Gustin recently spoke with E! Online about playing Barry Allen, aka The Flash, in Arrow and potentially his own series as well. Check out the highlights:
On the audition process: "I got an audition and I was really excited and a little skeptical at first, because I'm a comic book fan. I know the character and know I'm a little young."
On starting out as just Barry Allen: "I know I'm coming on as up-and-coming in my field. He's not going to be The Flash immediately, obviously. We're going to be Barry Allen first in two episodes and then he'll come back later as The Flash. I haven't actually had a chance to read any scripts yet, so we'll see."
On the character: "[I] didn't realize 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."
On the costume: "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."
