As one of the lucky ones who was able to preview the pilot of The CW‘s Arrow spinoff The Flash, I can tell you that it is great, and should please everyone. Superpowers? Check. Villains? Check. Short stories plus longer mythology? Check. Teeny bit o’ humor? Check. Teeny bit o’ darkness? Check. Unrequieted romance? Check. Great development of the origin story? Check.
Lighter than Arrow, but never cheesy, I can’t wait for everyone to check it out. While we wait, check out the new key art, followed by a new trailer that reveals a lot of new-to-you footage:
