Extended trailer for CW's 'The Flash'

by Greg Belfrage

It's no secret that production has been underway on a spin-off to CW's popular series, Arrow.

Last week, CW unveiled a full five minute trailer for its new series, The Flash. The show will air Tuesday nights this fall on the CW.

Grant Gustin stars as forensic scientist Barry Allen, who is struck by lightning and sent sprawling into nearby lab chemicals. The accident transforms Allen into the fastest man alive.

The trailer offers a lot of treats and foreshadowing for fans of the Scarlet Speedster. We get a glimpse of the man who killed Barry Allen's mother and he looks remarkably like Reverse Flash.

We also see the Weather Wizard in action, Iris West and our first look at the Flash's retro, stylized speed suit.

This awesome trailer is sure to have fans of the Flash talking a mile a minute!
