The Flash Season 3 to Tackle Flashpoint Confirms Grant Gustin & Greg Berlanti


From the CW Network, DC Comics and executive producer Greg Berlanti  (Arrow), The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh. Season two has ended and Season three is set for Fall, 2016.

Central City forensic investigator Barry Allen is, always charming and – as a result of a scientific experiment gone awry – now the fastest man alive! He’s The Flash, zigzagging through the action-packed new series from the creative team behind Arrow and based on the supersonic DC Comics character. With his life shadowed by his mother’s murder and his father wrongly convicted of the crime, Barry finds that his newfound power of super speed grants him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Barry quickly discovers he’s not the only “metahuman” created by the explosive disaster – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Now, to protect the innocent, Barry and his close friends who know his secret, race to combat evildoers in one astonishing adventure after another.

As you can see, The Flash himself Grant Gustin, with the permission of showrunner Greg Berlanti, has revealed the title of the season three premiere as none other than ‘Flashpoint’. Fans have speculated and now we know for sure, that the CW series will indeed be tackling the insane and brilliant comic arc of the same name. In the comics’ version of Flashpoint, Barry Allen goes back in time to save his mother and therefore causes massive changes to the current timeline, such as Superman being detained by the government and Batman being Thomas Wayne (Bruce’s father) and also – kinda more along the lines of The Punisher than the Dark Knight we all know.


At the end of season 2, Barry does the unthinkable and decides to travel back in time and he kicks Reverse-Flash’s ass, saving his mom and effectively and potentially erasing every damn thing we know about the current timeline. With Supergirl moving to the CW, we can likely expect tons of crossover depending how far the writers plan to carry out Flashpoint storylines since they do involve other heroes from the DC Comics/CW TV universe (and several that haven’t been seen as part of this shared universe – yet).
