Arrow EP Dishes on The Flash, Casting Grant Gustin and More

at .  Updated at . Comments

While fans cannot wait for the return of Arrow next week, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg was focused on a different superhero yesterday during our visit to this show's set in Vancouver:

The Flash.

Last month, the series cast Grant Gustin in the key role of Barry Allen, a recurring character who will appear in Starling City later this season and who may then receive his own spinoff.

Why did Kreisberg and company go with Gustin? How was the casting process similar to that of selecting Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen?

Watch the following on-set interview now and then return throughout this week for plenty more Arrow Season 2 scoop:

Arrow Quotes

Oliver: Are you alright? Diggle had mentioned that maybe you were feeling a little left out.
Felicity: What? No. I just used to being your girl. I mean, not your girl, girl. Your girl. I know it sounds like the same word, but it means something different in my head.
Oliver: Hey. You will always be my girl, Felicity.

Sara: That's not true. I wanted to kill Roy because that's what I do. That's who I am. I spent six years in the darkness and I looked into the eyes of the devil and I gave him my soul.
Oliver: I can help you get it back.
Sara: No. You deserve someone better. You can harness that light that's still inside of you, but I'm not that person and I never will be.
