The second trailer for The CW’s The Flash has arrived and while it’s nothing compared to that five-minute extended edition we got back in May, it still offers a solid sense of what Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is capable of. It’s only 30 seconds long, but it still makes it abundantly clear that The Flash’s super speed is going to make for some seriously riveting visuals.
Hit the jump to check out The Flash trailer for yourself and in case you missed it, we’ve also got an interview with executive producer and writer Andrew Kreisberg from San Diego Comic-Con up and running as well. The Flash is due to premiere on Tuesday, October 7th at 8pm and also stars Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh, John Wesley Shipp and Carlos Valdes.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Flash:
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.
