Okay. that was actually pretty awesome.

Still not sold on the costume when he's still, but I love the lightning effects when he runs.  Love Zoom showing up in the very first scene of the trailer, and the overall plot seems to be very good.

I was hopeful, but nearly ambivillent before. I'm sold now.

I never really got into Arrow (maybe because of the slow pacing.. :wacko:) but this looks exciting. Something I would look forward to watching. :)

Parts of this look pretty good, but why in the world did they cast a clone of the whiny Spider-Man actor as Barry Allen?  :P  Ehh, I didn't see anything here to make me reconsider the show.  It still reeks of CW-ness.

I think you mean CW-ness, Benton.. If a Warner Brothers owned DC character starts to lack in WB-ness then I will start to worry that they are hiring Marvel people to design their shows.

Secondly, I watched all of the Barry Allen episodes of Arrow that were the set up for spinning him off into Flash.. and I thought he was perfectly cast for the role although a much younger version of the character then the old Flash show in the '90s. It's very obvious they are setting up Arrow and Flash to be running side by side to build their television DC Universe on and the whole disaster which created the lightning which struck Barry shall be the trigger for all of the metahumans to come.

Whoops, edited.  Thanks CQ!

Ehh, he just doesn't sound, look, or act like Barry to me.  That's just from these trailers, so maybe he's better in the show.

Yeah, just let the pilot and maybe a few episodes past that let the show speak for itself. I'm pretty sure the Flash show will have a much different tone to it then what might not have worked with Arrow (since it's more flashback driven with what goes on between the island and present day). And you will get a pretty good look at '90s Flash vs New Flash since John Wesley Shipp is appearing on the show during the pilot (I keep wondering if maybe they use John as Zoom).

These trailers look fun, but it still depresses me that Warner Bros. is wasting as high-profile and interesting a character as the Flash on a low budget CW show.

Not that I can tell, unfortunately. And please, as much as I agree with your sentiments on CW having proved its worth, this is the Flash thread. Lets not start fights about completely unrelated shows.

Also, apparently John Shipp is actually playing Henry Allen, Barry's father (who is falsely imprisoned for Zoom's murder of Barry's mom). Kind of stinks, since that means he won't be playing a speedster... but the role does suit him at the same time.

Were there any superheroes?  :unsure: Yeah I thought so.
Hate to sidetrack this so lets just agree to disagree.

I'd say they have, yes. Arrow has been very well written, well paced, and is easily one of my favorite shows. Flash, similarly, looks very well put together, the graphics are intense, and I'm really excited to see what they do with it.

Compare that to DC's track record when it comes to film (Man of Steel, TDKR, and Green Lantern were all "good" films at best) and I'd much rather have Flash in the CW's hands. Besides, there's nothing that says he can't show up int the movies (Batman is obviously showing up despite Gotham's production, after all), just that DC doesn't like to do that.

Going off of the previews, even though I'm not 100% sold on the costume, the visuals really don't look too bad, and seem to have some pretty decent potential. I just really hope that the stories can keep pace with them.

They(CW) do a pretty good job with TV-show.Arrow is great,Supernatural is a good show,Vampire Dieries I dont watch but its pretty popular.So we can expect Flash to be at least good.

I really enjoy Arrow, but I've never watched Supernatural though. As for the Vampire Diaries, my wife had wanted to watch it, so I tried to watch it with her... :banghead:.

That is time I will never be able to get back.

It may be "popular", but it's popular with all the Twilight fans, you know, all the people who love annoying, whiney, characters.

Hopefully, Flash will at least be better than that.

So the pilot has been leaked! Has anybody else seen it?
I've got to say that I am a huge fan of Arrow, and this show is shaping up to be just as good....if they can keep the special effects budget up.
Of course there was the obligatory CW teenage romance type plots, and a few cringeworthy dialog moments, but I like how this show is going to be a bit more bright and fantastic as opposed to Arrow's grim n gritty.
