This Fall, the CW adds another DC superhero heavy to its roster with Barry Allen a.k.a. the Flash! Actor Grant Gustin brings the scarlet speedster to the small screen in his own series spun out of his guest appearance on this most recent season of ARROW. Check out the quick teaser that showcases Gustin’s Flash in full attire facing off against the Emerald Archer himself Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell):
Here is the show’s official description:
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.
Sounds like there may be some “freak of the week” aspect to this show along the lines of SMALLVILLE and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. What say you, Flash fans? Are you excited to see Barry in his own series this Fall?
