This five-minute extended trailer for the Flash TV show, a spinoff of The CW’s ‘Arrow’ is essentially the pilot episode condensed to the broad strokes. But, boy, does this look like it’ll make a nice companion piece to Arrow.
Compare this to the recently released trailer for Fox’s ‘Gotham’, which feels like an unnecessary prequel to the Batman saga. It feels calculating in a really depressing, pandering sort of way.
Anyway, back to The Flash. Seeing Barry Allen and Ollie Queen on the small screen together makes me wish we could get a guest appearance from the Superman of Smallville and have them build toward a Justice League. Flash looks fun and if it can be half as good as Arrow (one of the best shows on tv period) then comic book fans will be in for a treat. [via io9]
