I realize he does not favor the flash most fans know and love from the comic but as an “actor” he has range to change how he looks and acts. I’m shocked at how many people have no idea how talented he is. He was great in perks of being a wallflower but that role pales in comparison to his role in we need to talk about kevin. Warner Brothers owns the rights to the character and grant gustin was their call just as much as ezra is now. Every time an actor is cast in a role that people weren’t expecting or didn’t want to see its automatically bad. people bitched when robert downey jr was cast as tony stark and the same goes for chris evans as captain america or hugh jackman as wolverine but of course nobody remembers that. Its not what everyone is use to or what they want so its automatically bad? Ben Affleck may very well be the best batman we’ve ever had but rather than following his career or understanding why it was done people decided to lose their shit? If you want to be technical he has more acting experience than grant does. There’s a bigger picture to all of this and like it or not it was done for a reason. Wait until the movie comes out before deciding if he’s terrible in a role you’ve never seen him play just as fans who complained about the casting of grant did before they saw the premiere. Also we really don’t know which flash he’s playing so give the guy a chance.

This is an alternate take of the epic comic book storyline
Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China.
For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment.
Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles.
From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.
She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.
I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics.
