Last night the CW gave us the first official glimpse at the Scarlet Speedster himself, Barry Allen. Holy hell, I’m really excited! I know I’m been the least disappointed by Arrow out of us Agents but this bypasses every low standard I have for any CW production.
The lighting sparks! The slow motion run! The fanboy-goober excitement! Barry Allen is almost here and thank god he’s not a shadow-y sad Eeyore of a superhero. I might be getting too light-headed about this. Let me catch my breath. I’m sure they put Arrow in this teaser trailer to entice non-comic fans of the show to jump on board the Barry train but what it actually does is showcase a wonderful juxtaposition. Arrow is brooding and dark in this very neutral background but the Flash is bright, happy, and full of life.
I really hope the show continues in this vein because it looks perfect.
[QUICK ADDITION!: As soon as we posted this, a full 5-minute trailer for The Flash show went up, so… HERE IT IS!]
