The CW tweeted out a new poster for the upcoming The Flash series, and it looks electrifying.


Though I like the art style, color scheme, angle, and so on in the picture, I’m a little unclear why Barry is running backwards every half block. The streets are empty and there doesn’t appear to be any motivation for the sudden change in direction.

After witnessing his mother’s murder, and his father wrongly accused, Barry Allen is taken in by Detective West and his family. As Allen enters adulthood, he becomes a brilliant, yet socially awkward, forensic scientist for the Central City Police Department, whose obsession with his tragic past causes him to become an outcast among his peers. Allen tries to uncover the truth about his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name, which leads him to Harrison Wells’ particle accelerator. When the accelerator causes an explosion, Allen is struck by lightning, and enters a coma for nine months. When he wakes up, he discovers he has the ability to move at superhuman speeds, though he is not the only metahuman created in the wake of the explosion. As the violence related to metahuman criminals escalates, Allen vows to use his gift of speed to protect Central City with the help from a few close friends and associates who share his secrets while keeping his promise regarding his mother’s murder.

Still looks awesome, and I really want to see The Flash when it lands on The CW on October 7, 2014.

    Looks like someone painted ‘Grodd Lives’ on the sidewalk!

      I really hope that is a hint of what is to come and not just a nod to comic fans.
