Paul Wesley Becomes Red Death For Grant Gustin’s The Flash In New Image

The Flash Batman Red Death DC Comics Grant Gustin Paul Wesley

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.

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.
