We’re just a few weeks away from Barry Allen’s arrival in Starling City, and now we have our first footage of the future-Flash in action. Want to see?

Ahead of the character’s introduction on the Dec. 4 episode of Arrow, The CW has released an extended promo showing Allen’s (Grant Gustin) arrival in Starling City to help investigate a case at Queen Consolidated with some “unexplained elements.”

Judging by the setup, it seems like Felicity already knows Allen, and calls him in from Central City to help on the case. As if that wasn’t enough, it looks like the Brother Blood storyline is going to heat up at about the same time.

So how does Gustin look in the role? We don’t get to see much, and though he is a little too fresh-faced for this darker-tinged corner of the DC universe, he does come off as capable in the role. The folks at the network seem impressed, so that’s a good sign. Fingers crossed.

Of course, the network plans to introduce Allen in the upcoming midseason finale two-parter, then spin him off into his own companion Flash series next season.

Check out the footage above and let us know what you think.
