The Flash Film’s Marketing Department Reveals a ‘Surprise’ Cameo


Spoilers for the upcoming Flash movie…


The latest DC superhero racing into The Flash feature film as a cameo is going to be Grant Gustin according to


The star of The CW’s long-running The Flash series plays super speedster Barry Allen, who crossed over with Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen when the Arrowverse met the DC Extended Universe in Part Four of television’s Crisis on Infinite Earths event. After seven seasons of the CW series, Gustin’s version of the character will reportedly make his feature film debut when director Andy Muschietti’s Flash goes where “the DC Universe hasn’t gone before”: into the Multiverse.


Gustin would join a cast that includes Miller, reprising his role from Justice League, Ben Affleck as the Batman of the DCEU, Michael Keaton as a 30-years-older Dark Knight, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú and Ron Livingston as Nora and Henry Allen, and Sasha Calle as the Krypton-born Supergirl.


“This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it presents a story that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations that we’ve seen before are valid,” Muschietti said. “It’s inclusive in the sense that it is saying all that you’ve seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”


Warner Bros. Pictures is currently planning on releasing The Flash in theaters on November 4, 2022.
