According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cavanagh's character of Wells was a "rock star in the world of physics" before his pet project went horribly awry. That would be the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator. In the "Three Ghosts" episode of "Arrow," Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) went home to Central City just in time to get caught in the accelerator's bizarre explosion.
That confluence of events is set to create the superhero known as the Flash.
Unfortunately for Wells, the explosion also means that he's a scientific pariah -- he only gets a shot at redemption when he realizes Barry has gained super speed as a result of the accident.
With the casting of Cavanagh, the "Flash" pilot has almost all of its characters set. »
