Fanboys were wetting themselves last night when the CW aired this extended trailer for the upcoming Flash series. It certainly looks exciting. We got an ADORABLE Barry Allen (in bulgy SPANDEX, no less), a hot (and rather randomly retconned) Iris West, a quick tease of Professor Zoom (to be played by the yummy Rick Cosnett) and a kind-of cute, kind-of-gay Latino sidekick. Best line: “Lightening… gave me abs?”
On the minus side: The Flash outfit is still stupid, the Weather Wizard isn’t as hot as he is in the comics, and Tom Cavanaugh as the wheelchair-bound brains of the operation just feels like a Felicity Smoak redux.
The Flash arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg of Arrow fame, who, along with DC legend Geoff Johns, wrote the pilot episode. (via Superherohype)
Just so we’re all on the same page: THIS is RIck Cosnett, who will be playing Barry’s arch-enemy Professor Zoom.
