There's A Plan B For Grant Gustin's FLASH Should Series Fail

Greg Berlanti, the Executive Producer of Arrow and Flash, says he has a plan B for Grant Gustin's Flash if the fastest man alive's solo TV series fails to grab an audience or get picked up. Plus more on Felicity's involvement in Barry's life. Read on for more!

In an interview with Digital Spy, Greg Berlanti (executive producer of Arrow and Flash) lets us know that he has a plan B should plan A for Grant Gustin's FLASH fail to grab an audience or get picked up this fall.

"Fingers crossed we don't screw it up and he gets his own show!" he joked. "If he didn't, I don't think we would ever want to let Grant go. He's too valuable. That would be our hope, I think - no matter what, to keep Barry part of the universe."

So Barry will be returning to Starling City as a series regular on Arrow if Flash doesn't do well. He also hints that Barry and Felicity's chemistry will be explored in great detail and that Felicity will make frequent guest appearances on the Flash TV show. With the recent revival of Sara and Oliver's romance, Olicity has taken a back seat in Arrow's remaining season 2. Thus, opening up the opportunity for Felicity to move to central city for a brief arc.

Who would you like to see Felicity be with? Or should she focus on her work and become the self-made tech-billionaire she is destined to be?

Olicity is pain
HavocPrime - 2/10/2014, 7:10 AM
Sounds cool and I hope these shows somehow make it into DC's movie series
JatevinM - 2/10/2014, 7:11 AM
I'd definitely prefer she worry less about love and more about her work
JoeMomma29 - 2/10/2014, 7:14 AM
Hopefully the show will take off like Arrow, I just hope it does not start off slow.
Nubase - 2/10/2014, 7:19 AM
Flash should do well, as long as they keep in tone with arrow, keep the effects smart and the suit same as the comics it will be a success

This show has the potential to be better than Arrow, so I don't see it failing, especially taking into consideration how well received the episodes with Barry Allen were.
Jollem - 2/10/2014, 7:28 AM's the flash. knock it outta the park

ManCalledSting - 2/10/2014, 7:28 AM
Makes sense, but I'm sure it'll get it's own show.

Grant/Barry is a lucky guy..either way he likely gets to smooch on Felicity.

I expect Flash will be good.
Berserker187 - 2/10/2014, 8:08 AM
So would we see green lantern?
they should mention Bruce in the episode.
charlie2094 - 2/10/2014, 8:13 AM
Well, the director David Nutter has directed 19 Pilot Episodes and 17 of which got picked up for a full series, so not too concerned about this :P

Really looking forward to this...they did a decent job getting Arrow off the ground which is now pretty great, sure they can take what they've learnt and make it even better. Only concern I have is about how they'll pull off the character

Flash is far more sci-fi than Arrow, with his speed and all his villains, hope they can pull it off without having poor cgi

How could this show possibly fail?!

1. it's an Arrow spin off which is already popular
SaxoWolf - 2/10/2014, 8:14 AM
@Aquaman9 LMAO
soforizo - 2/10/2014, 8:14 AM
Those "Olicity" fans can get quite obnoxious with their demands. I do like the idea of actors crossing over for stories.
BaneSmash - 2/10/2014, 8:15 AM

Started watching Attack on Titans, OMG!! What a great show.............. Love it.
soforizo - 2/10/2014, 8:16 AM

The cgi is key in my opinion, though the stories, chemistry and action need to be great as well.
OnePunchBaldy - 2/10/2014, 8:16 AM

One of the best anime in years! Until Space Dandy premiered lol
Pasto - 2/10/2014, 8:16 AM
'Olicity' gives me as much pain as 'Seddy' or 'Farly'.

Are you sticking your foot out of the closet? ;)
Pasto - 2/10/2014, 8:17 AM
I only watch Attack On Titan for Mikasa. Hot chick that is.....even if she is animated....

*Reconsiders life*
soforizo - 2/10/2014, 8:17 AM

I love that anime, it is fantastic!
HecticHector - 2/10/2014, 8:18 AM
I have high hopes for the Flash show. However, I'm glad there is a plan B. It would be cool to see Flash as a series regular on 'Arrow', much like Green Arrow was on 'Smallville'. A Flash solo TV show is much more desirable, though. PLEASE DON'T SCREW IT UP!

The Flash costume teases from the writers is making me want to throw a bloody SHARK at them
gambgel - 2/10/2014, 8:21 AM
cant wait for this show. Will be the first real superhero tv show in a very looooooooong time.

And Im sure it will be sooo cool, with his personality and the action scenes
batmanvsuperman - 2/10/2014, 8:23 AM
This show will be awesome
MrReese - 2/10/2014, 8:25 AM
Good shit.If it's anywhere near as good as Arrow & better than AoS it shouldn't fail. ;) I like Grant as Barry tho so I'll still watch.
SuperCat - 2/10/2014, 8:29 AM
John11TT - 2/10/2014, 8:30 AM
I not want Barry Allen as a series regular in Arrow! I want see him in he´s own show as The Flash!!! (In suit of course) ;)
BaneSmash - 2/10/2014, 8:32 AM
@Sofo & Spidey

I'm hooked on it! And I'm not big on Anime.......
BaneSmash - 2/10/2014, 8:33 AM
Can't wait to see what the Flash looks like.
Pasto - 2/10/2014, 8:37 AM
MrReese - 2/10/2014, 8:41 AM
Plan A is making similar abc shows look like shit compared. ;)
Spidey10 - 2/10/2014, 8:59 AM
Denzel is awesome...would've killed it as LEX
GarthRanzz - 2/10/2014, 9:01 AM
I really like Oliver and Sara, with Laurel it brings great drama. Felicity, i always think needs to break in the cave with Diggle.
Spidey10 - 2/10/2014, 9:06 AM
I hope Laurel dies especially after the last episode...your sister who you thought was dead comes back and you act like that...she deserved a good
