Though most superhero TV shows haven’t exactly panned out *cough Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cough*, The CW has had great success in recent years.  After the long-running Smallville came to a close, the network took a risk by launching Arrow, which revolved around a far lesser known superhero than Superman.  The show debuted to a sizeable amount of success—both critical and commercial, our very own Justin gushes like a 12 year old girl at a One Direction concert whenever it’s brought up so you know it has to be good. Next the network is expanding its DC Television Universe even further with a pilot for The Flash.  As the pilot begins filming next week, a first look at star Grant Gustin in costume has now been released online.  The character actually made his first appearance on Arrow (albeit in “Barry Allen” form), but The CW is giving the character his own spinoff pilot with the hopes of launching a full The Flash series this fall.  The costume is quite impressive, and it was designed by legendary, Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Sleepy HollowAlice in Wonderland).

The cast for The Flash also includes Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order), Tom Cavanagh (Ed), Danielle Panabaker (Shark), Rick Cosnett (The Vampire Diaries), Candice Patton (The Game), and Carlos Valdes.

The official logline for the potential series is as follows:

Through a freak accident, scientist Barry Allen is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive, in THE FLASH.
