We've all heard of trailers for trailers. That's just common practice now. But what about a trailer for a trailer inside another trailer?

In the promo for this week's season finale of Arrow, The CW has promised an "exclusive first look" at its new series The Flash during the Wednesday episode. Check out the trailer after the jump (and if you haven't been keeping up with Arrow, be aware there are some season spoilers), and catch a very brief look at The Flash in action at the end.

DC Entertainment’s Constantine, iZombie and The Flash TV Shows All Get Series Pickups

Untitled-2

To paraphrase the immortal Xzibit, "Yo dawg, we heard you like DC Comics, so we put DC Comics in your TV so you can watch comics while you read comics."

Two different networks announced today that they're picking up three different shows based on DC and Vertigo properties: Constantine on NBC, iZombie and The Flash on The CW. With Arrow headed into its third season at The CW and Gotham already in production at Fox, this fall will be filled with hour-long dramas based on DC Comics.  Industry scuttlebutt is that DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is the primary force behind getting these shows this far, making today a pretty good day for the longtime superhero writer.

Yesterday, DC Comics gave fans their first full look at the costume lead actor Grant Gustin will be wearing in the new The Flash TV series on The CW. But the view was a little obstructed.

Today, leaked photos and an Instagram video from the set show the costume in action. We even get a chance to see Gustin running (at regular human speed, if not even slower). More importantly, we get to see him look like he's doing a kickflip sans skateboard... although Tumblr has already seen to making that Photoshop happen.

The Flash’s TV Costume Looks Built For Speed

Back in 1990 when John Wesley Shipp suited up to be a TV version of The Flash, his costume looked exactly like something out of the comic books of the time. It also looked downright impossible to run in.

The new Flash series on The CW starring Grant Gustin looks to be striking something of a balance between fealty for the look of the source material and functionality in the first image of the full suit released Tuesday by DC comics. Check out the full image after the jump.

Fans who were hoping that Grant Gustin's Barry Allen and Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity Smoak would cement their budding Arrow romance on The CW's upcoming spinoff Flash series should take note, because Smoak's got some competition now.

The series has cast actress Candice Patton, who viewers may know from the BET sitcom The Game or from a few episodes of Heroesto play Iris West, the woman that Barry married in the comics (before that all got erased in Flashpoint).

Wally West Makes His DC Comics New 52 Debut In April

Wally West The Flash

When DC Comics launched its New 52 initiative in 2011, rebooting and updating the entire DC Universe, it meant making a number of big changes, from dissolving Superman's marriage to Lois Lane to Barbara Gordon's return as Batgirl.
