The Best Actors Who Played The Flash

Updated June 22, 2019 3.9k votes 856 voters 15.0k views11 items

We're ranking the best Flash actors of all time. As one of the longest-running superheroes in history, the Flash is easily one of the most recognizable characters in the entire DC franchise. And While Superman may be more powerful than a locomotive, the Flash has the power of super speed. That means he’s able to move, think, and act faster than the speed of light.

There have been a handful of different Flash characters over the years. From voice actor Jack Angel’s classic role in Super Friends to Grant Gustin’s career-defining take in Arrow, and, subsequently, his own spinoff show, the Scarlet Speedster has many different faces. And let's not forget John Wesley Shipp’s muscle-bound rendition in The Flash. More recently, Kyle Gallner played the Flash in Smallville, and Ezra Miller took over Barry Allen duties in Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League
