The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley suits up as Red Death in this awesome new digital artwork for Grant Gustin’s The Flash.
With Arrow finally ending later this year, we’ll have to refer to the Arrowverse as something else going forward. It’s a good thing The CW has no shortage of amazing superhero shows, from The Flash to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Luckily, The CW’s DC Comics shows have introduced plenty of iconic comic book characters already, and we’ll likely see more soon. For instance, The Flash recently teased the villainous take on Batman known as Red Death, so it’s possible we’ll see him in the Grant Gustin series soon.
Of course, it’s doubtful that we’ll see Bruce Wayne himself on The Flash or even in the Arrowverse anytime soon, especially as Red Death, but plenty of other Arrowverse characters could take up the mantle instead. Thanks to digital artist Subi Ozil, The Flash fans are able to see what The Vampire Diaries actor Paul Wesley may look like should he be cast as the villanous DC Comics character. You can see Paul Wesley as Red Death below.

@paulwesley as Red Death . . . Saw @realworldofflash fancast for Red Death in the CW flash, so i decided to do an unmasked version of my previous red death edit. Are you guys down for this to happen? . . #flash #reddeath #cw #theflash #dc #dccomics #detectivecomics #thecw #cwshows #barryallen #batman #superman #aquaman #shazam #justiceleague #graphicart #comicart #red #photoshop #edit #lightning #composition #photoshopped #entertainment #art #cicada
Introduced in DC’s Metal event from Scott Snyder, Red Death is a villainous version of Batman from the Dark Multiverse. This specific version of Batman looked for new ways to fight crime and ended up absorbing Barry Allen’s Speed Force, which actually trapped the Scarlet Speedster’s consciousness inside of Bruce Wayne himself.
What do you think? Would you like to see Red Death in The Flash season six? Would Paul Wesley be a good choice to play the character? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!
Grant Gustin became a huge star thanks to The Flash television series. After Stephen Amell’s success on Arrow, Grant Gustin’s The Flash became even more popular and went on to become the biggest DC Comics series at The CW. Arrow and The Flash effectively gave way to other superhero shows on The CW like DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow and Supergirl. With The CW announcing that the next season of Arrow will be its last, Grant Gustin will seemingly lead the Arrowverse after the Stephen Amell series ends.
The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison “Sherloque” Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen, and Chris Klein as Cicada.
The Flash is expected to return for its sixth season this October. Season 6 will also lead us into the next Arrowverse crossover event, Crisis On Infinite Earths. Meanwhile, Paul Wesley was last seen in the CBS All Access series Tell Me a Story.

Warner Bros. and DC Films have many projects currently being developed including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.
The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is now playing and will be followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Aquaman is now playing. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DC cinematic universe as we learn it.
