According to ComicBook.com on Wednesday, CW has officially debuted it's new "Flash" TV show trailer. The series will be a spin-off from "Arrow" and stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. The trailer starts off with Green Arrow setting a projectile to launch at his target. Then along comes Allen as he snatches the arrow from the air just short of making its mark.
The trailer is more of a teaser actually, and for those who aren't familiar with the Flash character, Barry Allen is actually a scientist that had suffered an accident that's unique in nature that leaves him with a hypersonic-like ability. In the comic books and ironically prior to having acquired such an ability, he was rather slow, methodical, and constantly non-punctual which had always upset his fiance.
Flash is basically dubbed the protector of Central City and is played by actor Grant Gustin who works as a CSI lab technician at S.T.A.R. labs. His lab scientific co-horts Caitlin Snow, played by Danielle Panabaker and Cisco Ramon, played by Carlos Valdes, had already appeared in episode 20 of the CW's "Arrow".
Also, in the running as yet another DC TV series this fall will be "Gotham" starring "Southland's" Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon as he starts his journey as a rookie in Gotham City. A recent featurette of creator Bruno Heller remarks that this series will focus on Gordon and how the city has reached the propensity of crime to where Batman had to eventually intervene. Origin stories of the most notable villains like Poison Ivy, The Riddler, The Joker, Penguin, and more will be revealed and Heller does proclaim this show to be more visually stunning than Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy.
With "American Idol" loosing popularity in its ratings, the network is hopeful that "Gotham" will be the epic series to bring it back up and running.
