Apart from this trailer getting you pumped up for The Flash’s return on March 17th, it’s also a bit of an homage to the original Flash television series. Mark Hamill, who played The Trickster in the 1990 Flash series on CBS, is up to his old tricks again (I couldn’t help it.)
Hamill’s Trickster is an anarchist who is currently serving a life sentence in Iron Heights. This time around he’s helping Barry and Detective West to stop a new copycat Trickster from attacking the city. It should prove to be very interesting.
The Trickster isn’t the only character seen in the trailer seeing as its clips from a handful of episodes. Liam McIntyre of Spartacus fame is seen as Weather Wizard as well as Peyton List as Lisa Snart, aka Golden Glider.
The first episode “Out of Time” will air on Tuesday March 17th.
