Fans of comic books and the DC Universe to be precise, were delighted to learn that we would finally get to see Barry Allen aka The Flash, when he appears on the second season of the hit The CW series Arrow. Now, Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow, has teased what fans can expect from the character.
Amell told The Hollywood Reporter, "[Barry Allen is] a whippersnapper. He's young, he's enthusiastic, he's not stupid. In fact, he's incredibly smart. [But] he's a little naive and his level of enthusiasm and his penchant for problem-solving is something we've seen on the show with Felicity."
Stephen then went on to admit that Barry Allen and Felicity Smoak will hit it off straight away, "Their characters are incredibly similar and, as a result, have an instantaneous chemistry with one another and fondness for one another," he added.
The Flash will be played by Grant Gustin in Arrow season 2, which airs on The CW in the US on Wednesdays at 8/7c. The Arrow season 2 premiere will air on Sky1 in the UK on Monday, October 21 with a double bill. It has also been claimed that The Flash could get his own The CW series.
