The CW is very confident that their latest superhero property “The Flash” is going to spark a huge audience. Originally intended to function as a minor character on “Arrow”, the network is ramping up its plans for a series based on the character in a flash…sorry I couldn’t help myself.
“Glee” regular Grant Gustin has signed on to play the speed-loving hero.
Based on the overall outcome of those three guest appearances—all of which have only aired internally thus far— network executives gave the project a green light.
Deadline first broke the news. The premiere date for “The Flash” is still undecided.
