NEW FULL-LENGTH ‘THE FLASH’ TRAILER COMPLETELY NAILS IT
Well, that was probably a lot better than anyone could have reasonably expected.
Some quibbles aside, the first long look we’ve had at the new Flash television show comes with just about everything longtime comics readers would want to see in a modern Flash adaptation: a faithfully depicted origin of his speed powers, his partnership with STAR Labs, his battle with the Weather Wizard, and, most astonishingly, the Flash vs. a tornado.
Actor Grant Gustin may not look exactly like the square jawed, blond Barry Allen as envisioned by creators Robert Kanigher, John Broome and Carmine Infantino, but his performance in this clip expresses some crucial essences of the character. Specifically, he’s a cop, he wants to help people, he runs really damn fast, and he’s late. And while it’s sort of cheating given that the line was written by Mark Waid for ’90s Flash incarnation Wally West, it’s still pretty cool to hear the words “My name is Barry Allen and I’m the fastest man alive” spoken aloud as the Flash zooms through Central City.
This is absolutely fantastic. Like, I can’t believe this is on TV fantastic.
