  • Title: The Flash
  • IMDB: link

With this extended trailer we now have our first real look at The Flash which has officially been picked up by the CW and will air on Tuesday nights at 8/7 Central starting this Fall. Introduced on this season of Arrow, the spin-off stars Grant Gustin as CSI investigator Barry Allen who after nine months in a coma awakes to discover he has become the Fastest Man Alive. Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, and Carlos Valdes also star.

  • Title: Constantine
  • IMDB: link

Here’s a first look at NBC’s new series Constantine based on the long-running Vertigo comic Hellblazer centered around occult detective and con man John Constantine (Matt Ryan) dealing with a world most don’t know exists. Lucy Griffiths also stars. Set to premiere this Fall on NBC, the trailer doesn’t do much to sell me on the concept (although I’ve never been an avid Hellblazer reader).

  • Title: Gotham
  • wiki: link

Here’s the first look at Gotham. Ben McKenzie stars as Detective James Gordon in the new TV series set during Bruce Wayne‘s (David Mazouz) pre-Batman childhood with teen versions of his various enemies making appearances including Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), the Penguin (Robin Taylor), the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), Two-Face, the Joker, and Poison Ivy (Clare Foley). I wonder how long it will take before one of them pushes Bruce into a locker or steals his lunch money? Sigh. The show also stars Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Sara Paxton, Victoria Cartagena as Renee Montoya, and Zabryna Guevara as Sarah Essen. The trailer certainly looks slick, and looks more Gordon (and less Bruce) driven than I expected, but I’m still having trouble investing anything in this concept and would have far preferred the idea of resurrection the original Smallville pitch around a late teens/early twenties Bruce Wayne’s journey to become Batman. Gotham will premiere this Fall on FOX.

  • Title: The Powerpuff Girls – Dance Pantsed
  • wiki: link

I’m going to withhold judgment on this new CGI version of the Powerpuff Girls until the holiday special premieres on January 20th but this little teaser doesn’t inspire much confidence (especially after learning the characters’ creator Craig McCracken was not involved in any aspect of its creation).
