Grant Gustin On If The Flash Will Ever Adapt Crisis On Infinite Earths


When “The Flash” premiered the show kicked off a big mystery in the very first episode. At the end of the episode, Harrison Wells entered a mysterious time room, and he pulled up a hologram of a newspaper headline that read “FLASH MISSING – VANISHES IN CRISIS” and the newspaper was dated April 25, 2024.

Viewers of the show were presented with a nice little mystery in regards to the true intentions of Harrison Wells, and DC fans were happy to see an easter egg in the pilot.

It’s obviously going to be a while before the show reaches 2024, unless a huge time jump takes place, but Grant Gustin recently spoke to and he said that adapting the “Crisis On Infinite Earths” storyline for TV is a goal.

“We don’t really talk about it on a yearly basis but it was mentioned early on and that’s a goal. Obviously we’d have to go I think ten years to reach that, so there’s a possibility for sure. It’ll be fun to get there.”

The DC Comics event saw the death of Barry Allen after Barry gave his life to save the Earth from an antimatter canon. After the death of Barry Allen, Wally West picked up the mantle of The Flash.

“The Flash” season 4 will premiere on Tuesday, October 10.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever.

With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.

Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Todd Helbing (“Black Sails”).
