Blink and You’ll Miss the Easter Eggs in the New Trailer for THE FLASH
By Charles Webb on August 7, 2014
The CW has released a new 30-second spot for The Flash – and appropriate for the show, a lot happens really quickly in the rapid-fire teaser.
Largely using voiceover and a red and gold blur zipping throughout what’s presumably the Flash’s (Grant Gustin) stomping grounds, Central City, the new trailer offers some enigmatic teases about what we might come to expect throughout the first season of the CW series.
Most of it largely recounts the Flash’s origin, from the report warning the city to evacuate to learning that Barry has been out of commission and in a coma for months following the explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs. But The Hollywood Reporter is right to point out the most intriguing part of the teaser: the line about Barry’s body being the map to all-new worlds.
That’s right: Barry’s body is a wonderland (of multiverses). Or at least it could be.
In the comics, the Flash (and various other speedsters) often serve as bridges between the 52 worlds that comprise the DC Multiverse. Could the series already be teasing connections between some of the other dimensions that Barry will (one day) be able to access using the Speed Force? I don’t believe this will logically lead to a collision between the film and TV DC Universes, but that doesn’t mean The Flash and Arrow can’t at some point experience their own “Crisis”-style event.
Hey Fox, now’s your chance to set up a cross-network crossover and get The Flash to visit Gotham.
The Flash makes its debut on the CW Tuesday, October 7.
