The Flash At Comic-Con 2016: Grant Gustin Talks Flashpoint Effects & More Crossovers

The Flash TVO Grant GustinThe end of The Flash Season 2 marked as the beginning of the adaption of an iconic DC Comics’ storyline as Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) decides to go back in time and save his mother from being murdered by the Reverse-Flash. But by doing so, the universe around him will forever change as a consequence of time travel and that will be playing a large theme in the third season of the show.

Last week at San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in The Flash Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 3. Grant Gustin, the Flash himself, was one of the great talents we got to speak with as he teased the TV show’s take on the Flashpoint story, upcoming crossovers and more.

Highlights of the interview:

How the TV show will make its own adaptation of the Flashpoint story, but also feature several aspects of it.

-The fact that this arc will without doubt affect all the other shows, including a tease about Arrow.

-How long Flashpoint will be lasting in Season 3 and teasing permanent changes.

-Talking about doing a lot of crossovers this year across all the CW DCTV shows as he is set to do a total of four so far.

-How he personally feels about Barry making the decision in the Season 2 finale.
