It sure has been a big week for DC Comics. With Ben Affleck’s Batman suit being revealed, Constantine getting a trailer, and Arrow just finishing its second season, it would seem that they’ve been busy. Now on top of all of that, The CW has released Two new stills, TWO trailers,and the shows official synopsis.
The first photo (seen above) shows the hero in full attire, and the second (below) shows an already familiar shot of Barry and his “Wall Of Weird” (that’s not really what its call, but thanks to Smallville that’s what I will now refer to it as) that our hero seems to use to trace back all the unusual things going on in his city and the mysterious events that surrounded his mothers murder.
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.
Now lets move on to what you’ve clearly been waiting for, the trailers. The first trailer is what actually aired during the Arrow Season 2 Finale, and show’d fans not only how the character will look in motion, but that he will be much more lighthearted than his Green Arrow bff.
Then CW surprised everyone by releasing a 2nd trailer, this one being over 5min long and potentially spoiling all of the key moments from the shows upcoming first episode:
All I have to say is the show looks great and that its nice to see that this show will not be shy with calling its hero by the characters actual name (looking at you Arrow).
The Flash is set to debut this Fall on Tuesday nights on The CW.
