We’ve got awhile to go yet for the premiere of The Flash on The CW this fall, but the show is definitely working the marketing and promotion side well. They’ve added a new minute long interview/promo piece with some new footage that gives us a bit of time with some of the characters as well as a bit of a look at it from the actors perspective.
With the pilot directed by David Nutter, the series stars Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh. John Wesley-Shipp of the previous Flash TV series will guest in the pilot.
Plot concept: 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.
