We knew he could sing and dance but it looks like Grant Gustin can also fight crime!
Glee‘s meanest Warbler is turning in his Dalton Academy blazer for a new superhero suit! He’ll be playing The Flash on The CW’s hit series Arrow!
Today, the network released their first picture from the upcoming episode titled, The Scientist, where Grant makes his big debut!
OK, so he isn’t in his skintight red getup just yet. In the still above, Grant’s playing Barry Allen before he becomes the fast-acting Flash.
Arrow star Stephen Amell described the moment his character, Oliver Queen, meets Flash for the first time, saying:
“[Barry’s] a whippersnapper, enthusiastic and incredibly smart. He’s a little naive and his level of enthusiasm and his penchant for problem-solving is something we’ve seen on the show with Felicity.”
Felicity is played by Emily Bett Rickards on the series, and it sounds like she and Grant got to get super flirty together on the show!
And the news just keeps getting better!
In addition to his multiple episode arc on Arrow, Grant will also be shooting his own pilot as The Flash for the network! If all goes well, he’ll have his own superhero series on The CW soon!
ZOMG. TV just got so much sexier!!!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of Grant (below)![Image via The CW.]
