After two full seasons of Arrow, the CW has decided to give us a look into its latest venture into the DC universe with The Flash. Although shaky in its first season, the second season of Arrow really dived into the characters of the DC universe by giving us Black Canary, Speedy, Deathstroke, and yes, even young Barry Allen himself. Now, young Barry will be getting a series all to himself.
Check out the teaser trailer.
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.
It is unknown whether or not this show will follow more along the lines of Arrow or Smallville, but it raises another question entirely. We all know that Batman Vs Superman is quickly becoming a Justice League film, with the inclusion of characters such as Wonder Woman and Cyborg. One can only wonder if this series will lead up to the film, or even include the same actor, should The Flash be added to the already large roster.
Does Warner Brothers and DC have the foresight to not only pull this off, but compete against their rival, Marvel, which not only built Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D so it would flow along side with Captain America 2, but also have the next 17 of their films planned? We will have to wait and see.
