Grant Gustin Talks About THE FLASH's ARROW Debut In Episode 9 Of DC ALL ACCESS

Grant Gustin talks about his initial audition for the role of 'Barry Allen' in Arrow, as well as revealing his Superman tattoo, while the latest episode of DC All Access also features interviews about FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics and Justice League 3000.

Who needs Kris Kringle when you have Blair and Tiffany? In this week's all-new episode of "DC All Access," our two hosts give away a specially assembled DC Holiday Bundle. But first, they somehow manage to catch up with the Flash himself, Arrow's Grant Gustin, to talk about his new role on the show as Barry Allen. Also, Simon Oliver and Mark Doyle discuss FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics, artist Howard Porter talks Justice League 3000 and ComicBookGirl19 reviews three of this week's most highly anticipated new comics!

Still need to watch arrow. worth it?
ezio619 - 12/10/2013, 10:50 AM
Batman-the show takes a while to get going imo but after episode 10 or so,it kicked it into gear for me and its been great since then, so yeah
SuperCat - 12/10/2013, 10:51 AM
He still looks more like Wally West.
ezio619 - 12/10/2013, 10:52 AM
its cool that even he felt he was alittle too young for the part so the producers had to convince him, anyway,i really liked him, hopefully tomorrow will continue that trend
GinjaNinja - 12/10/2013, 10:55 AM
He cannot be the DCCU flash. He was bad as Barry. which sucks because I like Arrow so I wanted that to be th eDCCU.
ezio619 - 12/10/2013, 10:56 AM
dougie-what was bad about him, he was barry pre flash, barrry was clumsy and always late and dorky before he became flash
JasonBlue - 12/10/2013, 10:59 AM
They bassically said that if Grant had never auditioned they wouldn't have brought the character to life. Which I think is great for DC to do... to be able to hold off on bringing a character to life if they can't find the right actor/actress for the job. Which definitely shows in their casting for Shadow and Slade Wilson.

This gives me a lot more confidence in DC's casting in the future.
charlie2094 - 12/10/2013, 10:59 AM
Really liked him in Episode 9, can't wait for the next episode! Arrow's been really strong this second season, wonder if they will connect Arrow with the DCCU...I'd be more than happy if they did, but don't mind either way.

Will we still see the Flash costume this season? Now that Episode 22 isn't acting like a pilot for the Flash show, not sure if we will
27ShowStopper - 12/10/2013, 10:59 AM
Hope he kills it as Flash. This show is better then I could have imagined. Bested only by Game of Thrones.
JasonBlue - 12/10/2013, 11:00 AM

Best casting DC has ever done.
Alphadog - 12/10/2013, 11:01 AM
I have to admit that i was kind of worried when he was cast but i really liked him in Arrow even though I'm still worried about him playing flash since he's not that athletic. Gal Gadot on another hand shows no promise at all.
TheRationalNerd - 12/10/2013, 11:04 AM
I really want to get into this show but seeing how it may not tie into the DCCU makes me loose a bit of interest. Just feels like it'll be all for nothing (with the exception of traditional characters and villains never seen before on live tv.)

ezio619 - 12/10/2013, 11:04 AM
sure ,their some easy drama, thea is characterized alittle inconsistently week to week it seems like and laurel is ..not a fan of her character or her storyline right now but other then, really enjoying this show!!

Omega-when you see ep 16 and onwards, your opinion on tommy might change...
JasonBlue - 12/10/2013, 11:04 AM
@Alphadog I think Gal's going to surprise us all... if Snyder makes her just like Faora (with the accent and strength) WW will be amazing.
Pasto - 12/10/2013, 11:08 AM
Joeis always stoked. And I thought Gustin did a pretty darn good job as Barry.
charlie2094 - 12/10/2013, 11:09 AM

You should at least try it, I mean, The Dark Knight isn't part of the DCCU but that doesn't take anything away from how incredible Dark Knight is. It would be nice to see them link, but it's a very strong show, that it can stand on it's own if need be
Dmon - 12/10/2013, 11:09 AM
@0megaDaGod I like Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance he also played Harry Dresden on The Dresden Files even though that show was inferior to the books it's what got me to read them.
tomasocelot - 12/10/2013, 11:11 AM
haha gusto took to many meds again and got a haircut

Enphlieuwince - 12/10/2013, 11:11 AM

"Something about him makes me wanna drop kick him in the face."

LMAO! You sound a little like AngryGusto here.
Pasto - 12/10/2013, 11:13 AM
"It's actually my favorite thing to watch right now"


cipher - 12/10/2013, 11:18 AM
AngryGusto- So, what's your story? Escaped clone? Gamma radiation? Flop down south?
Enphlieuwince - 12/10/2013, 11:19 AM

Stop while you're ahead kid."

ROTFL. Wow, you mofos need a web series AT LEAST. This shit is just too funny...
TheRationalNerd - 12/10/2013, 11:19 AM

Brilliant thinking, your right man. I'll most def have to check it out after I wrap up with these finals. A great Winter Break this will be indeed! Thanks bro!
Enphlieuwince - 12/10/2013, 11:21 AM
@Gusto, for me, all of your post seem funnier because of that avatar. I can't help but read it in an old man's voice.
Dmon - 12/10/2013, 11:23 AM
@0megaDaGod Actually I think in tomorrows episode Det. Lance is going to tell Ollie that he has known he was Arrow for a long time.
GodzillaKart - 12/10/2013, 11:24 AM
Arrow is the best CBTV show ever made. Am I forgetting any?

If they could drop some of the 90210 "drama" and replace it with more sophisticated story telling, that would be great, but all in all, fantastic.

AoS has a ton of catching up to do.
soforizo - 12/10/2013, 11:30 AM
The actor himself creeps me out, but I liked him as Barry in that last episode.
GodzillaKart - 12/10/2013, 11:33 AM
As good as this show is, I think the guys calling for this to be part of the DCCU are all wet. I haven't seen anything to indicate that these guys could share the screen with Afleck and Cavill.
Dmon - 12/10/2013, 11:34 AM
@AnnoDomini Go watch the preview Lance is talking to Ollie about a super powered baddie. Ollie is using his normal voice not the synthesized one and Lance tells him to kill the guy.
soforizo - 12/10/2013, 11:37 AM

Ease up on the possible spoilers a bit dude, I think most viewers enjoy watching their episodes without spoilers.
cipher - 12/10/2013, 11:40 AM
Even the old man's gone PC.

What. Is the world. Coming to?
soforizo - 12/10/2013, 11:42 AM
PoliticallyCorrectGusto = BizarroGusto

It would be nice to have a BizarroGrif who went around saying "Hit show" or "Hit movie".
Dmon - 12/10/2013, 11:43 AM
@soforizo I don't think commenting on a preview that aired at the end of an episode and has been posted on here several times is a spoiler. Also it is still just speculation that I have had for a while and the preview just solidifies it.
Dmon - 12/10/2013, 11:45 AM
I was just merely stating that I think Det. Lance knows more then he lets on since some said they thought he was an incompetent Detective.
cipher - 12/10/2013, 11:47 AM
What are your feelings on drunks?
soforizo - 12/10/2013, 11:48 AM

Okay. No problem.

cipher - 12/10/2013, 11:49 AM
Hey, yoss..

I think Liderc would have a heart attack if he saw all these Gustos.
Dmon - 12/10/2013, 11:52 AM
@Gusto I did a google image search on that chick she is hot!
cipher - 12/10/2013, 11:52 AM

Moderation? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! I can't wait to see what I'm like in your universe.

Probably a vegetarian.

Hahahahahahahahahaha, yeah, brother..

Dribbling into his straitjacket, the poor sod.
