The invasion of comic book heroes has started, with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow both running weekly, but soon we will also see Gotham, Agent Carter, and Constantine invade the airways as well. Perhaps the most exciting in-development project of the bunch, however, is the Flash series that is currently in the works over at the CW. A TV show centered around scientist Barry Allen, who suffers a freak accident that turns him into a superhero with the power of incredible speed. Stars: Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett.
Being played by Grant Gustin, Barry appeared on two episodes of Arrow in the first half of the second season where he was introduced as a crime scene investigator from Central City who has a special interest in super-powered crimes due to the fact that his mother was a victim of one. Following his time in Starling City, he returns back home just in time to get caught in the explosive blast that comes as a result of an accident involving the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator. This big boom incapacitates Barry for some time and he spends a long time unconscious in the hospital, but when he awakens he discovers that he has somehow been given the power of super speed, which he then uses to become a vigilante fighting for good. Check it out coming this fall on the CW. Also check out the trailers below for more.
