The Flash is premiering on The CW in exactly 52 days (give or take a few days depending on when you read this). To celebrate, the network has released a new photo of star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen suiting up in his The Flash costume. The 52-day marker is a tease of DC Comics New 52, with some of those storylines sure to find their way into The CW's latest DC TV Series. Check it out as the fastest man alive prepares to launch himself into all kinds of trouble.
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.
