The Flash Is Faster Than A Speeding Arrow In The First Look Trailer For His New Series


flashThe Arrow season 2 finale is going on right now, but during the first commercial break star Stephen Amell decided it was time to drop the first look at his new buddy Grant Gustin‘s Flash series on his own Facebook page. We got the briefest of teasers yesterday, but now a one-minute long video showing Amell‘s Oliver Queen getting his target practice interrupted by the recently super powered Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). As Ollie says in the video, Flash is being a bit of a showoff.

This appears to be the Flash trailer The CW was teasing for tonight’s episode, but on the off chance anything else hits before Arrow ends we’ll be sure to update. The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Cadicne Patton (Iris West), Jesse L. Martin (Detective West), Rick Cosnett (Eddit Thawne), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow) and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon. It will air at an as of yet unannounced date and time this fall. What do you think about our first glimpse of The Flash in all his glory?

After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.
