The CW announced last week that they would in fact be picking up The Flash starring Grant Gustin as nerdy, forensic assistant Barry Allen aka The Flash. Gustin made his debut as Allen during the first half of the CW’s other DC Comic inspired television show, Arrow and who can forget Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) first words to the future superhero, “do his parents know he’s here?”
Well, things have changed since his debut like being struck by some powerful thing resulting in him being in a coma since his last appearance, according to Oliver’s bubbly IT genius, Felicity Smoak. While fans of Arrow were given the season two finale which we will not spoil for those that haven’t seen it yet, they also teased and gave us the first look at Gustin as The Flash, not just Barry.
Check out the first look below which at first you might think is just a preview for Arrow rather than The Flash.
And also keep in mind the phrase “show-off.”
