TORONTO — The Flash is coming to Vancouver.

The pilot for a potential series based on the character with superhuman speed is set to be shot in Vancouver in March.

Grant Gustin, best known as the Warbler who tried to break up Chris Colfer’s Kurt and Darren Criss’ Blaine on Glee, plays the titular character and his alter ego Barry Allen.

The pilot will also star Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order), Rick Cosnett (The Vampire Diaries) and Danielle Panabaker (Necessary Roughness).

Gustin, 24, was in Vancouver last year to guest star as Barry Allen on several episodes of Arrow.

The Flash, created for DC Comics by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert, debuted in Flash Comics in 1940.

John Wesley Shipp played the lead role in the 1990 TV series The Flash. It lasted one season.
