Great News! Another superhero TV series is coming out later in 2014! The Flash is developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns and will air on The CW network this fall (Spring for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere).
It will be based on the DC Comics character Flash (Barry Allen), a costumed crime-fighter who was created by Robert Kanigher, John Broome and Carmine Infantino. The Flash is a spin-off to Arrow and will exist in the same universe.
After witnessing his mother’s murder, and his father wrongly accused, Barry Allen is taken in by Detective West and his family. Becoming a forensic scientist, Allen tries to uncover the truth about his mother’s murder, which leads him to Harrison Wells’ particle accelerator. When the accelerator causes an explosion, Allen is struck by lightning, and enters a coma. When he wakes up, he learns he has the ability to move at superhuman speeds, though he is not the only metahuman created in the wake of the explosion.
is premise sounds pretty awesome if you ask me. The Flash will feature appearances by Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh and Jesse L. Martin. Check out the trailer for the show below and you’ll see how awesome this is going to be.
