I think we can all agree that Grant Gustin has had a pretty solid run as the Fastest Man Alive over at the ArrowVerse but as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end and the 33-year-old has already come to terms with The Flash's conclusion.

In an interview with E! News, Gustin said that while he's ready to close Barry Allen's chapter, he'll remain as The Flash even when the show marks its end. He said: "I'm ready for it to be over. And that's not for any negative reason. It's like when you're getting ready to finish high school and—granted I don't know what college I'm going to after this, I might not get into college—but you're excited to wrap up and move on to the next phase of your life."

The actor also extended his gratitude to the fans who supported the hit series since day one, saying that his portrayal as the Scarlet Speedster helped shape him into the person he is today. "I'll get to be The Flash forever even when this ends. We couldn't have done this this long if we didn't have people supporting us as much as they had over the years and it's really shaped who I am."

Considering Gustin is only in his early 30s, he would have been a great casting choice for James Gunn and Peter Safran's new DCU. Sadly, it doesn't look like he'd be able to reprise his role as Barry Allen on the main DCU continuity as DC Studios recently confirmed that the door is still wide open for Ezra Miller to return as the Scarlet Speedster once he's done with rehab.

The Flash's ninth and final season is showing on The CW.
