Two months before premiering its new superhero series, the CW uploaded a new teaser in which Barry Allen introduces himself as 'the fastest man alive'.
First introduced as a character on Arrow last December, the super-fast superhero has already proven he can win over viewers: one of the two episodes with the Flash was the show’s most-watched during the season.
Developed by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, the duo behind the show on the justice-crusading archer, The Flash is adapted from the comic of the same name and follows Barry Allen, a young forensic scientist working in Starling City. Following an explosion that takes place at his office, the character finds that he has acquired the power of extraordinary speed.
Played by Grant Gustin, formerly of Glee and 90210, the Flash will go head to head with Plastique, played by Kelly Frye, and with Captain Cold, the supervillain equipped with a freezing gun and played by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller. He will also cross paths with the superhero Firestorm (Robbie Amell). The Flash premieres Oct 7 in the United States. – AFP Relaxnews
