Zack Snyder talks DC’s Multiverse and why Grant Gustin couldn’t be the movie Flash

March 21st, 2016 by Marc Comments


One of the big questions a lot of people had was why Grant Gustin’s TV version of Barry Allen/The Flash was not allowed to appear in the DC Movies, although we at FTN understand exactly why, but now Zack Snyder has discussed why.

With Ezra Miller’s Flash set to appear (probably) in Batman V Superman later this week, Snyder has discussed the difference between the two flashes: “I just don’t think [Gustin] was a good fit. 

“I’m very strict with this universe and I just don’t see a version where…that (tone is) not our world.”

He wasn’t done there though as he delved deeper into the part of the DC Mythology we have been confident we’ll see developed on the big screen, just as it has been on the small ones – The Multiverse: “Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multiverse (idea), so it’s just not a thing that’s possible.”

So that’s confirmation then, although we had a fair idea that was the case after Geoff Johns’ comments about the multiverse (here)

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….
