Glee actor Grant Gustin joins the long list of television superheroes as the titular hero on The Flash, CW’s newest supernatural drama.
The last time television fans saw Gustin was on Arrow when he was Barry Allen, the lowly forensic investigator who was helping Oliver Queen/Arrow solve a few cases. He was then struck by a mysterious lightening bolt that would later turn him into the fastest human ever.
Airing next fall,The Flash will delve deeper into the DC comic book hero’s tragic backstory as he fights super villains who were altered by the same kind of dark matter he was.
The CW has released two promos for the show for those fans who can’t wait: one minute long teaser that aired after the season finale of Arrow and a longer five-minute trailer that provides a bigger glimpse into the newly minted superhero’s world. The trailer also features a number of familiar faces from The Arrow series, including the hooded archer himself.
