Grant Gustin, better known as Sebastian from Glee, has just been cast as Barry Allen aka The Flash in the upcoming season of CW’s Arrow. The plan is for Barry Allen’s character to appear in three episodes of Arrow before The Flash series spins off on its own. Here is the character description from a press release: “Barry Allen (Gustin) is a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante.” The character will be introduced as a regular guy at first, appearing in episodes 8, 9 and 20. Arrow premiers on October 9 at 8pm on the CW.
Okay, so on to the next bit of news which (fingers crossed) might just be a rumor. As if casting Ben Affleck as a tired and weary Batman wasn’t enough, Justin Bieber just posted this pic to his Instagram of him posing in a mirror next to an alleged copy of a script for the upcoming Superman sequel with the caption “#robin ??” Honestly, I’m not sure how much more we can take!
