The Flash shows off for Green Arrow in first trailer for the upcoming show

Because the world has gone cuckoo for comic books lately The CW has now produced a series based on The Flash to go along with it’s already successful series based on the Green Arrow. Check out the first trailer.

As you will see both shows will take place in the same world at the same time, with perhaps some interaction between the two characters. Grant Gustin plays The Flash, aka Barry Allen, with Danielle Panabaker (yay!), Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh making the bulk of the rest of the cast.

The show’s description: 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.
