You’ll see more of Oliver Queen than you will of The Flash in this first teaser trailer for the hero’s spin-off show. But what we do see of the scarlet speedster will give you the basics: his costume, the way he moves, and a flash of personality. While we may still see a separate version of the character on the big screen as part of the Justice League plan WB is building, for now this will be the only one we’ve got. Check out The Flash teaser trailer below, along with a long synopsis that details the particulars of the origin for this version of the character.
Update: An extended cut of the trailer has been released — a very extended cut. We’ve got that below, too.

It’s that time of year when the TV networks clear the crap off their channel and fill it up with new crap. The hope, of course, is the new crap sticks around and gains an audience. While we don’t follow a lot of TV here on /Film, we do follow big comic book shows and three new DC Comics TV shows just got picked up. Two on The CW and another on NBC.
The first, and most obvious, is The Flash, the Arrow spinoff starring Grant Gustin as the iconic DC Comics speedster. Then there’s iZombie, Veronica Mars‘ creator Rob Thomas’s adaptation of the Vertigo comic. Then, over on NBC, Constantine, starring Matt Ryan as a supernatural detective, got picked up too.

Briefly: Perhaps the strangest bit of casting for The CW’s new Arrow spin-off, The Flash, is the role given to the actor who played The Flash for CBS from 1990 to 1991. John Wesley Shipp, before playing Dawson’s father on Dawson’s Creek, was both Barry Allen and The Flash in the single-season show that featured 22 episodes of The Fastest Man Alive running around in a Stan Winston-built suit.
Shipp reportedly has a recurring role on the show, but his precise character has not been revealed. Can we now expect Mark Hamill’s Trickster to appear, too?
The rest of the cast for the new 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, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow and Tom Cavanagh as S.T.A.R. Labs CEO Harrison Wells.
