It seems that the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths will impact The Flash in more ways then we may have thought as Grant Gustin has teased at how the upcoming crossover will affect the show’s sixth season.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the new showrunner of The Flash and star Grant Gustin talked a bit about the upcoming season the Crisis on Infinite Earths. In it, Grant Gustin talked a bit about the mysterious date change in the future newspaper, teasing that we’ll find out why the date changed in the fifth season finale during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. Grant Gustin did not, however, give away any details as to how the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover would go about this:
Moving toward the crossover, we’re going to see the impact [losing Nora] is going to have on the future. We’re also going to find out more about the ‘Crisis’ headline in the [future] newspaper and why that date changed [in the season 5 finale], if the date changed. Heading toward the crossover we’re going to be dealing with that.
From the look of things, the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will see Grant Gustin’s The Flash at one of his lowest points!
The previous season of The Flash ended with Grant Gustin’s character losing his daughter and the date on a future newspaper that foretold The Flash’s disappearance on a particular date changed. As most comic book fans know, the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover takes its name from the crossover event of the same name. In Crisis on Infinite Earths, The Flash ultimately died saving the universe from the Anti-Monitor, ultimately turning into the same bolt of lightning that hit himself in the past, turning him into The Flash. So perhaps such a fate is instore for Grant Gustin’s character!
