There has been some complaints online due to the fact that WB is keeping their movie and TV universes separate, with some also complaining about the look of the new movie Flash, Ezra Miller.

While it remains to be seen what exactly WB will do with Ezra Miller as The Flash (Bart Allen?!), we can look on the bright side as with two different versions of The Flash, we get a movie and a TV series. Certainly if there was just one movie Flash, we wouldn't be seeing the same actor in a seasonal TV series as well.

Speaking of the TV series, Grant Gustin plays Barry Allen on the CW. Here are the latest set pics as well as Gustin reading the DC Comics comic book adaptation of his show. Gustin is a big fan of Superman and even has a tattoo on his left forearm in his mom's hand writing that reads, "Superman... I love him."

Preview for the next episode of The Flash, which airs Tuesdays at 8pm ET on the CW:


After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion -- and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.
