There are two ways of looking at this. You're either sad that the show and movie universe is separate because we could have had an awesome Green Arrow and Flash cameo/movies. Or you're happy they're separate so this pooh pooh won't stink up the show-verse.

Meh, Im not excited about it, but I am willing to change if he blows me away as Flash
staypuffed - 10/21/2014, 4:23 PM
Excellent choice!
GhostBusterPro - 10/21/2014, 4:23 PM
really people actually support this horrible casting?
needles94 - 10/21/2014, 4:23 PM
anybody who actually thought the tv and movies would cross over is dillusional
needles94 - 10/21/2014, 4:24 PM
@GhostBusterPro remember when Heath Ledger was horrible casting?

Grant is a tv actor for a reason.
TheDude - 10/21/2014, 4:30 PM
I just can't see him had the flash, he looks like more of a kid than Grant. Maybe he'll be impulse? Why is it hard to find a blonde flash?
Super12 - 10/21/2014, 4:30 PM
I'm ok with Grant Gustin not being Barry Allen on the big screen. But this little girl? Sorry, he's a great actor and has some good chops, but I'm not convinced he can pull off Barry Allen. We're probably in for a slightly emo, cynical, ultra-sarcastic Flash instead of the fun-loving, upbeat, All-American kid from the midwest.
Super12 - 10/21/2014, 4:31 PM
Also is there a shortage of blonde actors out there or what??
CaptainPresley - 10/21/2014, 4:32 PM
There is no such thing as TV or Movie actors anymore.
BabyGroot - 10/21/2014, 4:35 PM
Are the comments still [frick]ed up? I can't see my comment.
BabyGroot - 10/21/2014, 4:36 PM
Anyway... Ezra would've been better suited for one of the younger heroes, in my honest opinion. I'm just trying my hardest not to let my inner fanboy hate him for being casted in this role, but he's really [frick]ing talented. Who knows? He could go Christian Bale, get ripped, or anorexic or fat whenever he chooses. I just hope this casting makes sense and stays true to the character, that is all!
Saoshyant - 10/21/2014, 4:36 PM
Just want to remind people that when they announced Grant a lot of people said he was wrong because he was too young, too scrawny, didn't look like a superhero and nobody had heard of him.

When the movie does the character justice nobody will care about who is playing him. At least that's what an actor's job is after all.
dapussy - 10/21/2014, 4:38 PM
So.... the Flash is gay now.
Saoshyant - 10/21/2014, 4:43 PM
At this point I want them to make Flash super gay and change the red to pink just to see you guys heads explode.
SuperPickle - 10/21/2014, 4:58 PM
Some of you people are so [frick]ing stupid it makes my brain hurt.

WHO GIVES A SHIT THAT HE'S GAY?

He's an ACTOR. Playing a PART.

If you tools had any idea how many of your favorite actors in roles were gay, your heads would explode. And if you have that big of an issue with a gay actor playing a role, then you don't know SHIT about the whole idea of superheroes.

For [frick]'s sake, people. Homophobic shitheads.

I agree with @Saoshyant, I hope they make The Flash gay and he has a love scene with Dick Grayson or something, just to watch your heads explode.

Stupid [frick]ing asshats.
Tevii - 10/21/2014, 4:58 PM
My distaste for this casting has nothing to do with whether or not he is a good actor. He's a fine actor, just a horrible choice for the part. I could see him as Nightwing, Robin or Red Hood loooooooooooong before Flash.

but hey, Warner SUCKS at casting so whatever.... Jason Momoa is freakin awesome, but he's not Aquaman. he's more Hawkman or lobo
Tevii - 10/21/2014, 5:01 PM
Saoshyant - my issue is that if marvel can actually hire actors that look the part, why cant Warner bros?
There are so many characters that diversity isnt an issue, so why not hire to make the long time comic fans actually feel like they are watching a movie based on the comics they have loved for so long. Why make unnecessary changes? the answer is poor and antiquated marketing research
Tevii - 10/21/2014, 5:02 PM
NetmanTripleSec - nice!!
teinen - 10/21/2014, 5:03 PM
They should have cast the Rock cuz he's huge. Omg he's so huge. I could care less if these guys can act or whatever, as long as they're HUGE.
teinen - 10/21/2014, 5:09 PM
@Netman half of those movies never happened, those roles never played. And it would be presumptuous to assume they would have all sucked. You could also make the counter argument with good examples of inspired casting like Ledger, Downey even Hugh Jackman.
SuperPickle - 10/21/2014, 5:13 PM
@teinen HALF? More like all but one. And that one wasn't even supposed to be a film version of the comic book character. Karate Kid was a DC character too, with absolutely NO connection to the movie except in name.

Netman is a [frick]ing stupid toolbox.
SuperPickle - 10/21/2014, 5:14 PM
Leave it to people like Netman and every superhero movie is going to star professional wrestlers.
seven43861 - 10/21/2014, 5:24 PM
With the pedigree of television programs that they've been capable of doing it just doesn't make any sense why they wouldn't have their worlds connected. Just idiocy.
DCeddie - 10/21/2014, 5:30 PM
I don't give two sh!ts that he's gay. I DO care that he doesn't look the part, AT ALL! Why in the heck has Flash been reinvented as an anorexic?? Why can't he get some freaking muscles? Why is it a crime to have a (up until now) white character be played by a white actor?

I've never been so disappointed about casting so many times in one film.
DCeddie - 10/21/2014, 5:33 PM
@ NTS "Doesn't have to be one or the other, it can and should be both."

100% agreed!
TexasTwoFace - 10/21/2014, 5:33 PM
He wouldn't have been my choice, with Cavill and Affleck already cast I would have gotten someone older to play Barry but I don't think it is a terrible choice especially if he dyes his hair blond. We already have enough dark haired heroes in the JL. I'm not sold on how great an actor he is but I'm sure he's not a terrible one. And he is miles better than Jason Mamoa.
whittaflash - 10/21/2014, 5:37 PM
Some characters are a strongly defines by their looks and/or ethnicity, but Barry Allen isn't one of them. As long as Ezra looks like a ripped to shreds runner for the movies I'll be happy as he has the acting chops to make the role his.
ThatFiauxGuy - 10/21/2014, 5:39 PM
It should have beeen Rob Kazinsky!
McGee - 10/21/2014, 6:26 PM
Heh...heh.....AHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Pathogen - 10/21/2014, 6:34 PM
wow. he's young. that's dumb.
Titanace - 10/21/2014, 6:42 PM
Stinky
Japhath - 10/21/2014, 7:06 PM
HATE IT!!!!!!! Grant Gustin all the way. Don't care how good of an actor he is, we shouldn't have to see 2 Barry's!!! WB should take a risk and make one universe.
robometrallador - 10/21/2014, 7:11 PM
dont grant gustin this, see agents of shield, they got all the season finale out of their asses as they had to change plans for hydra takeover. I guess it didnt work as bad as it sounds but the show has definetely a weak will force as a result of retcons and stuff.
Japhath - 10/21/2014, 7:14 PM
My son said "Ezra looks Chaneesian. Barry is not Chaneesian." I would have to agree with his summation.
mcminnjb1990 - 10/21/2014, 7:22 PM
For all the haters watch "There's something about Kevin" and you can see his range he is a great actor. Would he be my first choice? No. But he will kill this role. Plus flash is always the little one so he will look the part too
Mankzin2 - 10/21/2014, 7:42 PM
The majority of you people on this site sicken me. I pray someday that you will change and become a better person.
Mankzin2 - 10/21/2014, 7:51 PM
Again...I will repeat this as many times as I see it in comments. If you comment on a persons race or ethnic background that shows where your first thoughts go to and proves that you are a racist. You racist people are what is wrong in America and you hiding behind the guise of fighting for minorities is so transparent, you are trash
BATMANx - 10/21/2014, 7:52 PM
