The Flash has become one of the more delightful and decidedly awesome superhero shows on TV. Although the recipe of the story is a bit redundant from one episode to another (guy with superpower going nuts and Flash has to stop him over and over) and tends to be tremendously cheesy at times, the series is filled with excitement. It does not only make comic book fans jump off of their chairs in joy, but also introduces non-comic book fans into the DC-universe.
Ahead of the second seasons October 6th premier, The CW has just released a brief but exciting trailer. One that looks to live up to the promise of delving more into everything the character represents in DC Comics; including the introduction of some classic CW characters – such as original Flash Jay Garrick and Atom Smasher, played by Teddy Sears and WWE Superstar Adam “Edge” Copeland respectively.
Jay Garrick was teased in season 1, when his winged helmet slid onto screen when Barry was running through a time portal. Looks like Jay Garrick and the singularity from the season 1 finale will be a driving force around season 2’s story arc.
Season 2 will see all the shows central characters return, as well as bring in some other new faces – in Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West; Shantel VanSanten as Patty Spivot; and Tony Todd as the voice of a new villain. This show and Arrow will also help introduce Legends of Tomorrow characters such as the villain Vandal Savage, and Carter Hall/Hawkman.
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.
