'The Flash' Extended Trailer Teases CW's Newest DC Comic Series
The Flash, which will be coming to the CW in the fall starring Grant Gustin as The Flash aka Barry Allen, looks promising in a five-minute trailer.
The Flash Trailer Released
During the Season 2 finale of the CW’s DC Comics hit Arrow, a short promo teased fans about what the latest superhero series would look like. On Thursday, the CW released a five-minute trailer that gave a more in-depth look at the Red Streak.
The trailer begins with a glimpse of Flash’s origin’s story: His mother was murdered in front of him when he was 11 by none other than Reverse Flash. Since then, he made it his life mission to find the person that took his mother from him. The task gets a whole lot easier when a bolt of lighting strikes through the skylight, leaving him in a 9-month coma that he wakes from with six-pack abs and newfound speed. He also happens to be self-healing.
Barry Allen's love interest Iris West (Candice Patton) makes an appearance in the trailer, as does Arrow (Stephen Amell). Since the two exist in the same DC Comics universe, there’s ample opportunity for crossover appearances between The Flash and the established show. In the trailer, Arrow enthuses about Flash’s potential and tells him to heed his own advice and get himself a mask.
The Flash will premiere sometime in October.
