The CW Debuts Teaser Trailer for THE FLASH
Whatever you do, don't blink. Blink and you'll miss him.
Not fast enough for Flash fans, The CW finally debuted a teaser trailer for The Flash toward the end of Arrow's Season 2 finale, "Unthinkable." The one-minute teaser, titled "Don't Blink," didn't feature anything from the show's pilot episode, but did have the first on-screen live-action pairing of Green Arrow and The Flash.
As the song "Birth" by the band 30 Seconds to Mars begins playing, we see Stephen Amell as The Arrow walking across hills in slow-motion towards toward a firing range target nailed to a tree. He notches and draws back an arrow, but just as he releases, a scarlet blur crackling with electricity streaks past and catches the arrow in mid-air just before striking its target.
The Flash whoops in celebration at his achievement, while The Arrow simply mutters "Showoff" in response. The Arrow then releases three arrows at once, with The Flash smiling defiantly and saying "Game on."
And for those who haven't seen the teaser, or just want to watch it again, here it is courtesy of The CW's official YouTube account...
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.
The Flash will air on The CW on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. EST.
