Though we got a taste of it in the second season of “Arrow,” the upcoming spin-off series “The Flash” will retell the origin of Barry Allen’s super powers and The CW has officially released that clip from the pilot episode. Check it out in the player below!
“The Flash” arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, who, along with Geoff Johns, wrote the pilot episode which was helmed by “Arrow” pilot director David Nutter. Gustin will star as the titular hero along with Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father, Detective West, Michelle Harrison as Barry’s mother Nora Allen and many others, including John Wesley Shipp, from the original “The Flash” TV series, as Barry’s father.
Set to premiere on October 7, “The Flash” will air on Tuesdays this fall.
