13 Reasons Grant Gustin Is The Flash We Needed

Superheroes are the big thing right now. Out of the DC Comics universe, the big ball players have always been Batman, Superman, and the Flash. As popular as Barry Allen might be (how many Flash shirts does Dr. Sheldon Cooper have?!) we haven’t seen too many portrayals of him in film and TV. Grant Gustin is only 2 seasons into portraying the fastest man alive, but he’s the best version of this superhero we could have asked for. We’re still shaking our fists at Zack Snyder for not snatching him up for the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film.

11. He doesn’t take crap from anyone:

13. He pulls off the selfless hero act very nicely:
