There's always been a great divide between the special effects seen in movies and television shows. With each passing year, that divide becomes less apparent. The new trailer for CW's upcoming Flash show doesn't shy away from showing the effects used to bring DC Comics' speedster to life. The speed effects look mighty impressive. I especially like how slow motion is handled.

The first episode of The Flash premieres on The CW on October 8. You can also get your first taste of Barry Allen in Arrow, CW's other hit super hero show.
