Grant Gustin Talks Time-Travel On THE FLASH; Is a Flashpoint Storyline In The Works?

"We are diving deep into the time-travel element and it is going to be wild," said Barry Allen actor Grant Gustin on the battle between Flash and Reverse-Flash. "I think it would be fun if [time-travel] totally changed the show for season two."

We learned previously that The CW's Flash superhero drama would explore the concept of time-travel in episode 15 and now the show's star, Grant Gustin has shared some details with THR.  "We are diving deep into the time-travel element and it is going to be wild," teased Gustin.  He adds that he hopes time-travel  will be a component of the show for many seasons to come.  "I think it would be fun if [time-travel] totally changed the show for season two."

Could a Flashpoint-style, elseworlds season 2 be in store for The CW's Flash?  DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer has already introduced a number of his comic book creations and concepts on both of The CW's superhero drams; however,  the whimsical storyline of Flashpoint-1 lends itself better to The Flash than Arrow.  In fact, Gustin has been hinting at Flashpoint since the pilot episode first aired.  .  "We're going to slowly find out more about Harrison Wells and what the hell is going on there", said Gustin back in August.  He continued, "What the coolest thing about that moment, to me, is they're setting up the fact that the Flashpoint story line [from the comics] could potentially happen — that Speed Force could be an aspect and time travel is potentially a part of the show."
 


-1 Flashpoint is a 2011 DC Comics miniseries created by Geoff Johns which chronicles the radical changes to the DC universe after The Flash travels back in time to stop the Reverse-Flash from killing his mother.  In doing so, Barry Allen never gains the powers of the Speed Force and never becomes The Flash, creating drastic changes across the DC proper.  WB released an animated adaptation of Flashpoint in 2013 titled Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.
