After being struck by lightning, Barry Allen wakes up from his coma to discover he's been given the power of super speed, becoming the Flash, fighting crime in Central City.
DC's slate of Arrowverse shows is ever-expanding, and so is the list of actors who almost snagged a role. Which Arrowverse superheroes were almost played by someone else?
In one of the crossover episodes, Ray Palmer/Atom (played by Brandon Routh) looks at Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist) and says "She actually looks like my cousin". This is a nod to the fact that Routh played Superman in the 2006 movie 'Superman Returns', and that Superman and Supergirl are cousins.
My name is Barry Allen and I'm the fastest man alive. A friend recently gave me the idea for a new name and something tells me it's gonna catch on.
Whenever Barry uses his super speed from a standing start, there is a gust of wind that blows in the opposite direction (for instance, if he superspeeds to the left, there is an airburst that blows to the right). Engaging his super speed in this manner would cause a suction effect creating an airburst in the same direction he's moving in.
Each week's opening credits during the voiceover words "fight crime and find others like me" changes to show the previous week's metahuman encounter.
