Grant Gustin, Geoff Johns and Andrew Kreisberg talk 'The Flash' Pilot


After yesterdays shocking ending with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) gaining his powers. Gustin and the Arrow writers talk about the future Flash TV Show via Comic Book Resources. Grant Gustin first starts off:
 "I'm mostly looking forward to getting the pilot script and seeing how Barry's going to handle this happening to him. He's not just excited. It's scary. That's what I loved about the character in the audition process -- it's not just he loves superheroes, and he's a fanboy, and all of a sudden he's like, "I'm going to be one, I'm really stoked about it." It's kind of like, "This is terrifying. This is really happening to me."
Andrew Kreisberg adds:
 "We'll want to keep "Arrow" as distinctive as possible, and "Flash" as distinctive as possible. Part of the fun will be how those two things play out in both shows, if we get that opportunity. In the same way that "Arrow" was conducive to bringing on characters like Deadshot and the Huntress and some of the more grounded people, hopefully with "The Flash" there's a way to bring on some of the more fantastical characters, that will probably still go through the grounding lens with which we view everything," Kreisberg adds. "But we could tackle some of the bigger villains, and possibly heroes. There's a hint of a major character in the pilot. It's always important to remember -- like with "Arrow," everybody wants Batman to come on and whatnot, but Arrow has to be the coolest person on "Arrow." The same thing with "The Flash" -- Barry has to be the coolest person."
Geoff Johns then goes onto say:
"We're using a lot of mythology, a lot of characters from the comics in the development of the "Flash" show. I don't want to get too specific yet, but you'll see a lot of characters, a lot of elements from that. It's very much The Flash."
 At least this confirms that Grant Gustin will be our leading man going into The Flash TV Show. How did you like his portrayal on the character on the 2-Part Mid-Season Finale on Arrow?!
