Flashpoint takes over in jaw-dropping trailer for THE FLASH Season 3!
San Diego Comic-Con brings the first new look at The Flash, and the show looks more daring and dramatic than ever before!
The trailer shows a world re-imagined after Barry Allen travels back in time and saves his mother, Nora, from her brutal death at the hands of Reverse Flash. In this new world, Barry still has both his parents, but there are also plenty of differences– Iris doesn’t know him, Joe doesn’t like him, Cisco is a corporate tech guru with billions to his name, and Wally West is also a speedster.
We’re only seeing sprinkles of Caitlin, but we’re also getting some very, very foreboding shots of Zoom/Black Flash running around Central City and new villain Doctor Alchemy. Matt Letscher is also back as Eobard Thawne aka Reverse Flash, who has a very daunting question for Barry Allen.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the newest baddie, Doctor Alchemy is a DC supervillain who possesses the Philosopher’s Stone of legend and with it, he can rearrange and reform elements, including the human body.
It seems that part of Season 3 will focus on Barry trying to form the world to his needs and right some wrongs, but it’s likely going to be a long, dangerous process.
The Flash returns to The CW on Tuesday, October 4, 2016.
