Grant Gustin finally addresses rumour of cameo in The Flash movie

April 15th, 2023 by Marc Comments

Ever since Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/Flash met Ezra Miller’s in the Crisis on Infinite Earths Arrowverse event, above, there was a lot of talk that Gustin would appear in the upcoming Flash movie.

Heck, it would make sense for several reasons – the duo are now aware of each other and other universes and since The Flash movie is about Miller’s Flash crossing the Multiverse, it seemed like a no brainer… there were even rumours that, after Miller’s past behaviour, Gustin would be his DCEU replacement moving forward.

However, now Gustin has addressed the rumours and it seems that, no, he will not be appearing in the big screen outing:

In the interview above, the actor is asked about a cameo in the movie and he replies: “There’s been a lot of rumours out there for a long time and no one’s come out directly and asked me, ever, on the record.”

And he does admit that he gets asked about it a lot: “You know, people ask me on the street all the time and, yeah, I’m not keeping some big elaborate secret.”

RUMOUR: Grant Gustin to replace Ezra Miller as the big screen Flash

Personally, I would be very surprised if the two Flashes don’t meet in the movie – Gustin has played the character for nine years now on The CW shows and it would be a bit odd if the new movie, which apparently covers a lot of DC’s past on film and TV, snubber him but given all the weird stuff happening at DC/Warners recently, it wouldn’t be a big shock.

Of course, he could be telling the truth but I suspect, nay, I hope, that he’s simply covering up a surprise cameo in the same way that Andrew Garfield swore he wasn’t returning as Spider-man.

In related news, the trailer for the ninth episode of the final season of Gustin’s Flash series has been released and features the return of the man who kicked off the entire Arrowverse, Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen AKA Green Arrow/Arrow, as we reported some time ago.

The episode is called “It’s My Party and I’ll Die If I Want To”.

The Flash Season 9 stars Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Danielle Nicolet, Kayla Compton, Brandon McKnight, and Jon Cor, with Jesse L. Martin and Richard Harman set to recur. Season 9 will also feature guest stars Javicia Leslie and Nicole Maine as they reprise their respective Arrowverse roles as Ryan Wilder/Batwoman and Nia Nal/Dreamer, respectively.

On June 16, worlds collide. Watch the official trailer now for The Flash – only in theaters. #TheFlashMovie

Warner Bros. Pictures presents “The Flash,” directed by Andy Muschietti (the “IT” films, “Mama”). Ezra Miller reprises their role as Barry Allen in the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film.

Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?

“The Flash” ensemble also includes rising star Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon (“Bullet Train,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Ron Livingston (“Loudermilk,” “The Conjuring”), Maribel Verdú (“Elite,” “Y tu mamá también”), Kiersey Clemons (“Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” “Sweetheart”), Antje Traue (“King of Ravens,” “Man of Steel”) and Michael Keaton (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Batman”).

“The Flash” is produced by Barbara Muschietti (the “IT” films, “Mama”) and Michael Disco (“Rampage,” “San Andreas”). The screenplay is by Christina Hodson (“Birds of Prey,” “Bumblebee”), with a screen story by John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (“Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming”) and Joby Harold (“Transformers: Rise of the Beasts,” “Army of the Dead”), based on characters from DC. The executive producers
are Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, Galen Vaisman and Marianne Jenkins.

Joining director Muschietti behind the camera are director of photography Henry Braham (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “The Suicide Squad”), production designer Paul Denham Austerberry (“IT Chapter Two,” “The Shape of Water”), editors Jason Ballantine (the “IT” films, “The Great Gatsby”) and Paul Machliss (“The Gentlemen,” “Baby Driver”), and costume designer Alexandra Byrne (“Doctor Strange,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”); the score is by Benjamin Wallfisch
(“The Invisible Man,” the “IT” films).

Ben Affleck regrets quitting as Batman after returning for The Flash… and reveals a big cameo in the movie [you have been warned] UPDATED: Official Flash synopsis added

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
