“WHOA!!! @grantgust got up here in a…” Stephen, 31, posted up on Twitter.
Grant added, “What up, Vancouver??? Let’s hang out for a couple weeks.”
In case you missed the big announcement, Grant will play The Flash/Barry Allen in the backdoor pilot and potential spinoff.
The character’s official description: Barry Allen is a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante.
In the video, Robbie coins the term “Amellsday” while Stephen just laughs. “It’s good right? Amell and Wednesday combined? It’s going to be Amell-tastic! Amell-arific! Lots of Amell adventure! Plenty of Amell excitement!”
Don’t forget – Arrow and The Tomorrow People premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 9th starting at 8PM ET on The CW!
“Last season, he didn’t care much what anyone thought of him, as Oliver Queen or as the Arrow, and this season he’s stepping into new challenges in both worlds,” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg shared. “As Oliver Queen, he’s taking a bigger role at his family’s company… and as the vigilante he decides that it’s not enough to just be crossing names off a list. He needs to be a hero, and part of that means adopting the moniker of Arrow.”

Now, Stephen teams with the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication.
