Speaking to E! Online, Glee star Grant Gustin teased a little of his arrival as CSI Barry Allen – aka the super-speedy Flash – in Arrow Season 2.

“We’re going to see Barry Allen first in two episodes, and then he’ll come back later as The Flash,” Gustin told E! Online.

“I’m a little fanboy – I’m so excited to be a part of the show.

“I got an audition, and I was really excited and a little skeptical at first, because I’m a comic book fan,” he said. “I know the character and know I’m a little young.”

The actor added that despite the more grounded reinvention of DC Comics characters Arrow, Allen will be appearing “in a pretty traditional Flash costume.”

Arrow Season 1 will be available to own 23 September 2013. Pre-order it on DVD for £21.02 or on Blu-ray for £27.49 from Amazon.co.uk. Season 2 will air on Sky 1 later this year.
