Zack Snyder Reveals Why Grant Gustin’s Flash Was Not Chosen For The Flash Movie!

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you know we will have two versions of The Flash within just a few years. Grant Gustin on TV & Ezra Miller in the movies. But now Zack Snyder has revealed why Gustin’s Barry Allen was not selected for his Justice League!

Speaking in an interview to New York Daily News, the Batman v Superman director explains why they chose not to include Grant Gustin’s version of Barry Allen and push forward with a completely different version of Barry Allen in Ezra Miller:

“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. 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.”

Now, if we’re to clutch at straws and read between the lines here, while Snyder is saying that Grant Gustin’s happy-go-lucky, always smiling Barry Allen/The Flash just did not fit his dark & gritty world-vision for the Justice League movies and beyond he is still not ruling out the fact that there is an over arcing Multiverse. While The Flash & Arrow are currently separate from the movie universe, that does not mean that with a flick of a pen there will be an opening and then bam, Crisis on Infinite Earths! The Flash is already setting the basis for it with its Earth-2 plots so far this season on the CW!

We have mentioned several times that it would be a wasted opportunity if the DCEU did not expand to include its TV properties, especially The Flash & Arrow which have garnered massive fan bases and rave reviews.
