By Josh Wilding - 8/26/2014
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.

batz11 - 8/26/2014, 10:56 AM
Cool, but it's an open street, isn't the fastest path from point A to B a straight line?
CaptShipwreck - 8/26/2014, 11:01 AM
But then having flash show up
In dawn of justice will shit on this show and the actor.... Great poster though I'm very impressed with it
Pheezmatic - 8/26/2014, 11:04 AM
Uh...why would he run forwards and then backwards and then forwards again?....that is stupid.
Pheezmatic - 8/26/2014, 11:05 AM
Haha batz...beat me to it :D
RajunRemyLebeau - 8/26/2014, 11:08 AM
Yeah, but Barry likes symbolism, and let's face it, he has time to backtrack.
RajunRemyLebeau - 8/26/2014, 11:09 AM
If the Human Torch has time to make flaming fours in the sky, The Flash has time to make lightning bolts in the streets.
batz11 - 8/26/2014, 11:09 AM
Great minds pheez! Or just idiots for saying something so stupid?
Owlman88 - 8/26/2014, 11:12 AM
Queen Consolidated
STAR Labs
AmerTek
Kord Industries


So, is this guy coming to The CW?:

Queen Consolidated in the background.

Nice poster.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/26/2014, 11:13 AM
That could pass for a movie poster
gambgel - 8/26/2014, 11:23 AM
pretty cool. cant wait to see some episodes already
Arrowhead77 - 8/26/2014, 11:29 AM
That is a badass poster!
laughterman26 - 8/26/2014, 11:32 AM
He's clearly drunk he goes from the right lane to the lest then back and repeats it till he's in the middle lane. GO HOME BARRY YOUR DRUNK
Dunejedi - 8/26/2014, 11:33 AM
Very cool poster.
Battabing - 8/26/2014, 11:43 AM
Very nice poster.
I see all those companies in the background. I have to admit, though, it's a missed opportunity not having Michael Holt be the one trying to take over Ollie's company, but I'm thinking they want to use Mr. Terrific in the movies otherwise, he'd have been a perfect fit for Arrow.

As for The Flash, can't wait!!
Jollem - 8/26/2014, 11:46 AM
neato. reminds me of these where you can see the emblem in the background



sahin86 - 8/26/2014, 11:48 AM
Great Concept.
IISuperSlothII - 8/26/2014, 11:53 AM
Grodd Lives is on the path on the bottom right of the poster. and Amertek on the left is to do with a character called Steel. (had to make a trip to google for that one)
Marxman12 - 8/26/2014, 11:56 AM
I'm really liking all the posters for The Flash thus far.
Jollem - 8/26/2014, 11:58 AM
@IISuperSlothII - nice grodd catch. i caught the steel one as i had the first several issues of steel
FOOM - 8/26/2014, 12:01 PM
Likely to be a Flash in the pan.
DEFA - 8/26/2014, 12:02 PM
- Cool...!!
McGee - 8/26/2014, 12:07 PM
Girls don't give me the time of day anymore....ever since news spread that I'm done in a Flash. :(
StarYeezus - 8/26/2014, 12:08 PM
Now this is a superhero show!
Gusto - 8/26/2014, 12:09 PM
I think your O face is what turns them off more, McGee...

McGee - 8/26/2014, 12:27 PM
Maybe....it can't be because of the pubic hair bunnies.

I got that shampoo now.
DCeddie - 8/26/2014, 12:41 PM
The building next to the Queen building almost looks like either Brainiacs ship, or the Legion of Doom base from Superfriends...
GenreFan - 8/26/2014, 12:55 PM
Kind of silly when you think about the path that he's running, but I get it. He's making the symbol. Still kind of makes me chuckle to know he's running down the street. You know, on patrol or on the way to stop a crime .. then .. doh! runs back .. then doh! runs forward then doh! runs back...

Kind of like in The Dark Knight Rises when he takes a moment to climb a bridge with multiple cans of flammable gel or whatever he used to do it, paint a bat symbol with said gel/paint, leave a trail that ran down the bridge and across a frozen river and lit said bat sign. While there's a horrifying hostage situation unfolding in his precious city.



Well not really like that but .. you know.
Jollem - 8/26/2014, 1:09 PM
alfred made the bat symbol

...duh
AlphaAndDecima - 8/26/2014, 1:18 PM
@GenreFan

Hey, you making fun of my avatar????? :)

But, you know…it's not like he was trying to create a symbol for the people or anything…

@Jollem

Except this poster for The Flash isn't dog shit and also resembles the correct tone that belongs to The Flash.
vtopa - 8/26/2014, 1:41 PM
Forgive my ignorance here, but does this mean that the actor playing the Flash in this series will also play him in the Justice League movies?
Super12 - 8/26/2014, 1:54 PM
@vtopa no they are going to be separate universes.

But thats a sweet poster
