New Trailer: The Future Begins for THE FLASH


The CW have debuted a new one minute long trailer for their upcoming Arrow spin-off The Flash, a small-screen take on DC’s fastest man alive.

In the new trailer, Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash learns to control his new powers with a little help from CW’s other superhero Arrow (Stephen Amell).

The new promo does show quite bit of critical sequences from the show’s pilot episode, so be aware, potential spoilers ahead.

The show co-stars Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father, Detective West, Michelle Harrison​ as Barry Allen’s mother Nora, Rick Gosnett as Central City Police Detective Eddie Thawne, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow, Tom Cavanagh as S.T.A.R. Labs CEO Harrison Wells, Robbie Amell as Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm, Patrick Sabongui as Police Captain David Singh, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold and John Wesley Shipp who played The Flash in the 1990 TV series.

David Nutter directed the pilot from a script by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns.

The Flash is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 7 at 8pm on The CW.

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.
