'The Flash' Spoilers: Grant Gustin Confirms 'Flashpoint' Storyline For Season 3
Actor Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash) and Greg Berlanti revealed the title to the first episode of the next season of The Flash!
It looks like The Flash season 3 will look a lot different after Grant Gustin confirmed the start of the Flashpoint storyline... Flashpoint is the name of the 2011 DC Comics series that changed the face of the DCU, detailing a radically changed universe that only Barry initially realizes.
In the season 2 finale of The Flash, Barry went back in time to do what he couldn't before: save his mother from dying at the hands of The Reverse Flash.
For those unfamiliar with the "Flashpoint" arc that birthed the "New 52" DC Comics, the story saw Barry similarly going back in time to prevent his mother's murder, the resulting ripples of which created a world where Aquaman and Wonder Woman's war consumes the planet. "We're definitely doing this FP thing our own way", the "Glee" alum wrote in a follow-up tweet. "As such, this newcomer doesn't buy Barry's nice guy routine and sets out to learn what he's hiding - all while concealing some secrets of his own".
But what does it mean for The Flash TV series to take on this now classic arc, which was adapted in 2013 as an animated film?
In the comics plot, Barry traveled to an alternate timeline where his mother is alive and numerous usual heroes of the world act more like villains.
While Pedowitz did not confirm as to what DC series show will accommodate other DC characters for what he dubbed as the network's biggest event, fans clearly want it to happen on "The Flash".
Whatever the case, are you curious to see The Flash's version of Flashpoint?
Previously, Entertainment Weekly notes that the CW announced that there was going to be a crossover between "The Flash", "DC's Legends of Tomorrow", "Arrow" and "Supergirl" that will air in December 2016. However, The Flash will be the first of these shows to return to the network in the fall, premiering October 4th in the U.S. at 8 p.m. ET.
