With Supergirl on the cards (here), though not necessarily to tie in with Arrow and the Flash, DC are proving they really want to open up the comics universe on TV.
Now this new promo focuses on the explosion at S.T.A.R Labs that creates The Flash and the effect it may have on others in the show, especially when you remember that Carlos Valdes and Danielle Panabaker (who feature here) are the characters who become Vibe and Killer Frost in the comics.
The cast of The Flash show includes Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father, Detective West, Rick Gosnett as Central City Police Detective Eddie Thawne aka Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon aka Vibe, Danielle Panabaker as S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost, Robbie Amell as Ronnie Raymond aka Firestorm, Tom Cavanagh as S.T.A.R. Labs CEO Harrison Wells, Michelle Harrison as Nora Allen, John Wesley Shipp as Henry Allen, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold, Clancy Brown as General Wade Eiling, and Greg Finley as Tony Woodard aka Girder.
The Flash arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg who, along with Geoff Johns, will write the pilot episode with Arrow pilot director David Nutter at the helm.
The Flash will premiere on October 7th.
