'The Flash' Grant Gustin Teases Classic Red Suit & Time Traveling!

In an interview with Grant Gustin he talks about the reception of becoming Barry Allen!

Today E! Online sat down with Grant Gustin. Gustin if some of you don't know has been cast as Barry Allen aka The Flash in this upcoming season of Arrow on The CW. He talks about his reaction on getting the role, his classic red spandex suit and time traveling
"I'm kind of running around a little bit, but mostly just for fun at this point,"
He said at The Hollywood Reporter's Nominees and TV's New Season pre-Emmys party. He continued:
"Just because I'm really excited...I'm a little fanboy. I'm so excited to be a part of the show. I got an audition and I was really excited and a little skeptical at first, because I'm a comic book fan. I know the character and know I'm a little young."
 He goes onto talking about the audition process and his reaction when he got the job: 
"[It was a] long audition process. I was at the ocean in Malibu with a buddy of mine, and just had a movie moment and jumped in the ocean afterwards. It was pretty amazing."
 He goes onto talking about being Barry Allen 'The Assistant Forensic Scientist" before becoming The Scarlet Speedster:
"I know I'm coming on as up-and-coming in my field, He's not going to be The Flash immediately, obviously. We're going to be Barry Allen first in two episodes and then he'll come back later as The Flash. I haven't actually had a chance to read any scripts yet, so we'll see."

 He then goes onto talk about The Flash Time-Travel ability like in Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox:
"I didn't realize before I started doing all my research that he can actually time travel, he can run so fast, I think that'd be a really fun thing to play with on the show is him kind of going to different times and experimenting with that. That'd be fun." 

And as for his costume he talks about recent fanart and the classic red suit:
"I would image, when The Flash comes he'll be in a pretty traditional Flash costume, That's kind of what I've caught wind of."

As for the fanart thats popped up online:
"Oh, the one that's like open?! Yeah, I sent that to my mom actually. We just died laughing. She thought it was hilarious."

Arrow Returns this October !
