Thursday marks a pretty momentous occasion in the DC Universe. That’s the day the latest episode of Arrow premieres, with the first appearance of a major character in both the TV universe, and maybe the movie universe as well. We’re talking about Barry Allen, aka The Flash, who’ll have a two episode arc on Arrow starting with Thursday’s episode, The Scientist.

Over the summer, it was revealed that Barry Allen, aka The Flash, was going to be introduced on the CW series Arrow. Grant Gustin was cast in the role and the plan was that after appearing in two episodes of Arrow, a later episode would highlight the Flash and serve as a “backdoor” pilot for the character.
Those plans have now changed. After seeing Gustin in his first two Arrow episodes, numbers 8 and 9 airing December 4 and 11, executives have decided the character will get his own pilot instead of it being disguised as an episode of Arrow.
Update: The image above is the first official still of Gustin as Barry Allen, as he appears int he December 4 episode of Arrow.
