Extended Premiere Trailer for The Flash Brings New Footage, Photos from Episode 2 Released

Last week brought the news that The CW would be giving the upcoming series premiere of “The Flash” an extra three minutes, and now a new trailer for the series not only reveals the reason for those three minutes but shows off some brand new footage! Check it out in the player below.

In addition, the first promo images from episode 2 of the series have made their way online. Titled “Fastest Man Alive,” the episode is described as follows:

“Barry escorts Iris to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg (guest star William Sadler). When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man’s life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him. As Dr. Wells, Caitlin and Cisco scramble to find out what’s wrong with Barry, Joe  comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn’t six gunmen but a metahuman named Danton Black (guest star Michael Christopher Smith), who can make multiples of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the ‘red streak.’”

Directed by David Nutter with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns, “Fastest Man Alive” will air October 14. “The Flash” will airs Tuesdays this fall at 8PM.
