Zack Snyder Reveals Why Grant Gustin Wasn't Cast as The Flash in 'Justice League'

Director Zack Snyder has finally revealed why Grant Gustin was not cast as The Flash in the DC Universe films, specifically Justice League, despite holding down the role on the popular CW series.

“I just don’t think it was a good fit. I’m very strict with this universe, and I just don’t see a version where… that (tone is) not our world,” Zack told the New York Daily News.

“Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multiverse (idea), so it’s just not a thing that’s possible,” he continued.

Ezra Miller landed the role of The Flash in the Justice League movies.

    If he’s not a part of Zack’s vision, he’s not going to work in the film. I mean, I love Grant but at the same time, you have to look at who is playing Batman and Superman and REALLY think about it.

    I’m glad they cast Ezra tbh. I mean I like Grant but I feel like he wouldn’t really fit in with the other cast members in a way

  • VanityInsecurity

    Never mind all the fans the show has.. lets only worry about your vision.. wow egomaniac.
    Perfect example as why some films fail cus of casting choices.

  • Sofeuh

    Snyder doesn’t make real sense to a real FAN of comics not just the pretty movies nowadays… Gustin has more experience in the role but more so in the universe, where Miller hasn’t even done one action film.

  • Malida

    I don’t really care about if Grant was cast or not but i swear Zach Snyder will be the death of something that has amazing potential. He hasn’t produced a great film in like a decade.

  • xtincta

    Grant is too camp and besides nobody wants to see a TV actor on the wide screen. Zach Snyder is one of the greatest directors working now, he knows what he’s doing not deranged CW fangirls.

  • Lee Zellwe

    it was a good call
    Ezra is amazing he’ll do great! can’t wait to see him

  • brutallyhonest

    because he’s a terrible actor and they needed someone with box office appeal.
