Grant Gustin On Playing The Flash Again

Grant Gustin has been the face behind The Flash for nine seasons. The Flash first premiered in October 2014. The ninth season of the superhero series got over in March 2023. During an interview with the media outlet Entertainment Weekly, The Flash star Grant Gustin spoke about the role that gave him recognition in the entertainment industry and how he will always be ready to play Barry Allen. The actor said-

“I’m not going to say I’m hanging it up for good. I have no idea what the future holds. And not even Flash-related — so many people would ask what I wanted to do when this chapter was over, and how I probably wouldn’t want to do superhero things again, but no, I grew up a fan of this genre. I love this genre, I love sci-fi stuff, and I love superhero stuff, so I would be open to doing any superhero thing again, Flash or something else, as long as it was a character I was excited about. I would honestly love for someone to call me about some Flash-related thing at some point down the line.”

According to the 33-year-old actor, the character of Barry Allen aka The Flash would always be close to his heart. He further mentioned-

“Regardless of whether I put the suit on again or not — and I love this — I’ll be associated with the character for the rest of my life. No matter what else I do in my career, this will probably be the thing that I’m most recognized for, just because of the impact of the character in the suit. And that has nothing to do with me. That’s just the character’s legacy. So, anybody who wants to call me about the Flash, I will take the phone call and hear them out.”

The Glee actor even said that whenever he gets the opportunity of playing some other superhero not connected with the Flash, he would always want to trade it with Barry Allen’s The Flash.
