I recently finished the second season of The CW Network’s show “Arrow”, the one based on the DC Comics character “Green Arrow” and during that run we met Barry Allen. Allen was a forensic scientist for the Central City Police Department and at the close of his appearances was the victim of a lab accident that will lead him to becoming The Flash. Comic book fans everywhere know exactly what I am talking about but this “Arrow” cameo was the not so subtle lead into his own series as “The Flash” appears in his own show tonight. Check out the poster below and then we can review the premise and cast.
As its been previously reported, DC Comics’ own “The Flash” who in real life goes by the name Barry Allen is getting his own solo series after being introduced on the action packed CW Network series “Arrow”. The show stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash and I will get more into the cast when the show debuts on its announcement post.
The trailer was released earlier today and it looks pretty good even though they took some obvious liberties with the origin and his overall reason for choosing to become a hero. I am sure that we shall see lots of villains from his famous Rogues Gallery and as any reader of the comic book will attest, The Flash had some really wild adversaries.
What do you think of the clip? Did you like what you saw? Chime in on this post and lets discuss.

The other day Fox announced that “Gotham” was green lit to go to series and this show will feature the pre-history time of the city, its villains and a young, recently orphaned Bruce Wayne. It really looks interesting and earlier today it was reported that the CW Network has given the go ahead to the “Arrow” spinoff of “The Flash” along with a Vertigo Comics tale “iZombie”. I’ve little background on iZombie personally but know that Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen made an appearance on “Arrow” about a month ago during a two-part episode that left you with a cliffhanger that will surely be the perfect setup for a pilot episode. Check out the proposed costume that Grant is sporting below. I like it actually.
