New ‘The Flash’ Trailer Debuts First Footage Beyond Series Premiere
While CW 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' has already made a few internet and critic rounds before next week's formal premiere, notably absent has been any new footage of the speedy DC drama beyond its pilot. Now, a new preview for the series debuts a first look at additional footage from the extended cut this Tuesday, as well as some shiny new footage of upcoming episodes!
We'd previously heard that The CW would look to extend next Tuesday's 'Flash' premiere an additional three minutes, though it wasn't entirely clear what this meant with regard to the pilot cut given to critics and screened at Comic-Con 2014. Now, a new "The Future Begins" promo clearly highlights an additional FX-heavy scene of the STAR labs crew testing Barry (Grant Gustin)'s powers, all the while promising an exclusive look at upcoming episodes, complete with a suited-up bullet-time Barry.
Greenlit for 13 episodes and with additional scripts already ordered, ‘The Flash’ also boasts among its cast Tom Cavanaugh’s Dr. Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin's Detective West and Candice Batton's Iris West, Danielle Panabaker's Caitlin Snow and Carlos Valdes’ Cisco Ramon, original 'Flash' John Wesley Shipp as Barry's father Henry Allen, and ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ star Rick Cosnett as Central City Police transfer Detective Eddie Thawne.
Additionally, 'Arrow' star Stephen Amell's cousin Robbie has also signed on to play an incarnation of DC superhero Firestorm, joining such colorful DC characters as Kelly Frye's Plastique, 'Prison Break' stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell as Captain Cold and Heat Wave, Robert Knepper's returning Clock King, Greg Finley's Girder, and Clancy Brown's General Wade Eiling.
While we wait for next Tuesday's premiere, check out the latest footage from 'The Flash' above, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the new DC drama!
