Recently, DC has confirmed both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will be returning as their iterations of Batman in substantial roles in Andy Muschietti’s The Flash. Now, The Flash TV showrunner Eric Wallace has stated he would love to see Grant Gustin’s version of Flash in the upcoming movie following Ezra Miller’s cameo in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
During an interview with Discussing Film during the DC FanDome event, Wallace revealed he was excited about The Flash movie and would love to see Gustin make an appearance but says that there haven’t been any talks yet.
“I am so excited about The Flash movie,” Wallace says. “I literally will be the first person in line to go see it. I love all things of The Flash, all different iterations of The Flash. Obviously, in my heart of hearts, Grant is my favourite Flash because that’s my show, you know? But it was such an honour and a privilege to have Ezra come play in our Arrowverse, even though it was only that one scene and Grant and Ezra got along so well. There was definitely a comradery there and a mutual respect for each other as performers because they’re very, very different, right? They’re very different people. But they are both so, so gifted and talented. So yes, I can’t wait to see this movie.”
“I would love to see Grant appear somewhere in their version of the film,” he continues. “Say I said, ‘You know what? I’ll give you a couple of weeks off easy now.’ I don’t know if they’ll do that, but I’m putting it out there. Because I know Grant would be excited. I think he would have some fun. I also told Ezra, with open arms, we would welcome him back. I would love to have him back for longer, for a full episode of The Flash, if we can somehow make it happen. Schedules are so tough. He’s a very busy man. He has not just The Flash franchise, but other franchises too. So I don’t know how possible it is, but I do know it’s not impossible because we proved it in Crisis when we saw the two Flashes together. So I’m going to be hopeful and I’m going to put that energy out there. Hopefully someday sooner, rather than later, we will see those two Flashes of Ezra and Grant together and for anybody reading this article, I am happy to help accommodate in any way possible.”
