The Flash Extended Trailer Rocks!

As a big fan of Arrow I can’t wait to check out the new CW series The Flash. While Marvel continually increases the size of it’s cinematic universe DC comics flounders but there is nothing fishy about the shared universe being created with Arrow and The Flash. While Arrow is more grounded in the real world The Flash from this trailer shows that this new series will be slightly more fantastical.

Here is the official blurb for The Flash:

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.

Weather Wizard is a good choice for the first villain (leaving out the obvious other one) but I am really looking forward to Captain Cold and The Trickster. Tuesdays this fall are going to be fun!
