The CW has released a new promo for The Flash that teases the villains that will be introduced when the series returns on March 17th. One of the coolest things it has to offer is our first look at Mark Hamill’s return as the Trickster.
As you probably already know, Hamill played this exact same character in the original 1990s Flash TV series. Now he’s making a comeback in this awesome new adaptation of the character. In the trailer, you can actually see some stills of Hamill in costume the first time he played the character. In the episode that he appears in, there’s a young Trickster copycat played by Devon Graye. He takes up the criminal’s brightly colored villainy, but the original Trickster still has plans of his own that he’s going to act on.
As for the next episode that doesn’t include the Trickster, titled “Out of Time,” here’s the synopsis:
Mark Mardon aka The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) appears in Central City intent on avenging his brother Clyde’s death, and sets his sights on Joe, who shot Clyde. When Mardon attacks Joe and Barry, Barry is able to super-speed them to safety but Mardon gets away. Barry warns Joe not to go after a meta-human alone but Joe doesn’t listen and ends up in grave danger. Meanwhile, Cisco looks into the night the team captured the Reverse Flash and realizes something doesn’t add up and begins to wonder whether Joe was right about Dr. Wells. Barry and Linda (guest star Malese Jow) end up on an awkward double date with Eddie and Iris.
Here’s the trailer:
