CW’s ‘The Flash‘ has been tearing it up in the TV ratings, even beating the show it is a spin-off of ‘Arrow‘. But, just shortly after the new show took off, DC andWB announced that they would not be using actor Grant Gustin as The Flash in their upcoming movies. Personally i thought it was a dumb move on their part and it looks like I am not alone. Actor Stephen Amell feels the same way. Check out what he has to say below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
“I thought that the way Warner Bros. announced the slate of DC movies could have been handled better. I think that someone like Grant Gustin, who has just launched an iconic character like The Flash, to record-breaking numbers — numbers that far surpassed Arrow‘s numbers […] I think that he should have been given a wider berth than two episodes before another actor was announced to play his character. […] I thought that it was shitty that all of this stuff got announced the morning that the ratings — the spectacular ratings — of the second episode of The Flash came in.”
