CW unveiled a teaser trailer for its upcoming "The Flash" TV series, which is an "Arrow" spin-off and stars Grant Gusti as the popular DC superhero. Check out the teaser below.
Plot: 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.
The suit sucks. It looks like a f*cking jogging suit, one old people wear while trying to outrun death. Way too much space and not nearly as close-cut as it should be.
And the color though toned down doesn't "suit" the fact Wally is supposed to be a bright red bur when running. To me it just looks like he disappears from one place and reappears in another with an intervening CGI color blur in between. Looks really poorly done.
Who knows. Perhaps DC will beat Marvel in the television arena. Not like SHIELD is doing all that well so early in it's projected run.
