Tonight’s episode of The Flash is all about the “Invasion!” crossover event, but things will return to normal next week when Barry Allen meets back up with Earth-3’s Fastest Man Alive, Jay Garrick.

We first met the hero in the show’s season 2 finale when he was revealed as the man in the iron mask being held captive by Zoom. Since then, he’s returned to warn Barry about the dangers of time travel, but in this instalment of The Flash, Jay will be taking on Mark Hamill’s Trickster (well, The Trickster from Earth-3).

For more on what to expect from this episode – titled “The Present” – here’s the official synopsis:

Mark Hamill Returns As The Trickster In Stills And Synopsis For The Flash Season 3, Episode 9: "The Present"

29 November 2016 2:41 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As we all know, Mark Hamill has appeared as The Trickster in earlier seasons of The Flash, but in these new promo stills he's definitely looking more like another DC supervillain he's closely associated with: The Joker. The character is listed as James Jesse, and is therefore almost certainly the Earth-3 version of The Trickster, who can be seen here facing off with John Wesley Shipp's incarnation of Jay Garrick. Check out the pics below, along with a synopsis for the December 6 episode of The Flash, "The Present." Barry Seeks Help From Jay Garrick — With Alchemy and Savitar still looming threats, Barry (Grant Gustin) is unable to focus on the Christmas holiday, and especially his relationship with Iris (Candice Patton).

The Flash season 3 episode 5 review: Monster

1 November 2016 7:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Nov 2, 2016

"Monster" is a weird, offbeat, standalone and really effective episode of The Flash season 3...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 Monster

Wow. I'm not sure I've ever seen an episode of The Flash quite like this one. A standalone episode like Monster seems like it would be an excuse to be disposable, right? Roll out an obscure villain, heap in some clever DC Comics trivia, and sleepwalk your way towards that 23-episode obligation.

Nope. Not tonight!

In virtually every way, Monster managed to defy expectations. From the fact that the titular monster wasn't real in the first place, to the fact that Julian isn't quite the enormous penis »

Star Wars Episode VIII’s Mark Hamill Returns To The Flash With A Drastic New Look

19 October 2016 8:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Despite returning to the public spotlight in a big way when he reprised the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mark Hamill didn’t hesitate to return to The Flash as The Trickster (a character he first played in the short-lived 1990s TV series starring the Scarlet Speedster). Now, some new photos from the Vancouver set of The Flash have surfaced, and they show Hamill once again back in the role. However, he looks a lot more like The Joker here.

Hamill has voiced the Clown Prince of Crime in everything from Batman: The Killing Joke to the Arkham series of video games, but the chances of The Joker showing up in The Flash are somewhere between slim and none. So, why is The Trickster sporting such a drastically different look then?

Well, the fact that John Wesley Shipp’s Jay Garrick »

Star Wars' Mark Hamill Is Looking A Lot Like The Joker In These New Images From The Set Of The Flash

19 October 2016 6:32 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As we all know, Mark Hamill has appeared as The Trickster in earlier seasons of The Flash, but in these new set pics he's definitely looking more like another DC supervillain he's closely associated with: The Joker. The photos were taken on the Vancouver set of an upcoming season 3 episode, and posted online by Twitter user Bruna Skrzypek - though she doesn't seem to have any context for what was being filmed. One of the images does show Hamill alongside John Wesley Shipp's Jay Garrick, so perhaps this is simply Earth 3's Trickster? Whatever the case may be, it's highly unlikely Hamill is actually playing an incarnation of The Joker, but it's a cool little homage to his acclaimed take on the character all the same. »

The Flash season 3 episode 2 review: Paradox

13 October 2016 12:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Oct 13, 2016

Are Barry and his friends living the darkest timeline? Here's our review of The Flash's latest season three episode...

This review contains spoilers.

3.2 Paradox

I have a feeling that the true success or failure of The Flash's Flashpoint experiment won't become clear until at least the midpoint of this season, but this episode – Paradox – does at least clear away some of the emotional debris left by Barry's terrible, terrible decisions.

While I didn't necessarily have a problem with it, one main complaint from fans following the premiere was how short-lived Flashpoint turned out to be. All that hype for one week of story? Well here we get some permanent consequences, which act as much as an emotional catalyst as they do an excuse for the writers to speed up a few plotlines (*cough* Killer Frost *cough*) that have been teased earlier.

But as far as »

The Flash “Paradox” Review

12 October 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Passing the Torch

Can you live with the mistakes you make?

Last week we saw the emotional impact of Barry making the decision of going back in time and saving his mother from dying.  With an alternate timeline, created by Barry, we saw a life where Barry had his family and wasn’t the hero of Central City but after some time in that life he realizes that the new reality is not much better.  His selfish decision to save his mother and then reverse that event has altered the timeline to create a blend between the original and Flashpoint timeline.  It is not until the end of last week’s episode that Barry realized that he would never be able to go back to the original timeline.

After Barry realizes the present timeline he returns too is not the timeline he originally left he makes the decision to go »

The Flash Season 3 Episode 2 Review: Paradox

11 October 2016 8:42 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The changes to this timeline were bigger than Barry expected.

Yet it almost seems unfair, after watching The Flash Season 3 Episode 2, that Barry was the one who messed with time and ultimately seems to have suffered the fewest consequences.

Did anybody else notice that? Everything that happened is a result of decisions Barry made, but he still gets the girl. Either way, he lost his parents. There must be something else coming for Barry that's wholly unexpected, right?

View Slideshow: The Flash Photos from "Paradox"

It's not that I'm wishing harm upon Barry, but seeing the others we love in such pain is really difficult.

Their eventual acknowledgement of being a family and taking with that the mistakes and forgiveness that makes familial love survive through the ages did a good job reminding us of how close they have all become through the years.

But Cisco lost his brother after »

How Seriously Did Flashpoint Mess With The Flash? And How Does Tom Felton Fit In?

11 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Flashpoint might be over, but as we learned in the second episode of The Flash season three, we'll still be feeling its effects throughout the entire upcoming season. It turns out that although Barry (Grant Gustin) tried to put everything back as it was, it's impossible to do so: As Mitch Leery—sorry, we mean Henry Allen a.k.a. Jay Garrick a.k.a. The Flash a.k.a. John Wesley Shipp—showed Barry when he snatched him and took him to a diner in 1998, it's like trying to put together a broken coffee mug. It might look sorta the same, but you'll still be able to see the cracks. The biggest visible change in a post-Flashpoint world is the addition of Julian Albert (Tom Felton) to the Central City »

Learn More Of The Paradox Created By Barry Allen In Two New Trailers For The Flash

5 October 2016 9:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m sure I’m not the only one who had their mind blown by the closing minutes of the season premiere of The Flash, which aired last night. Seriously, how would you feel upon thinking you set the timeline straight only to find out two of the people you love most aren’t on speaking terms and you apparently have an arch-nemesis that you know nothing of? Such is the new life of Barry Allen.

The extended trailer embedded at the top is especially interesting because, unlike last night’s initially released promo, it gives us our first real teaser of the Caitlin Snow we’ve come to know taking her first step toward becoming Killer Frost. Granted, we saw her Earth-2 doppelganger fully embrace this persona, but watching her possibly enter a downward spiral and become one of The Flash’s deadliest enemies should make for some great television. »

Barry Made A Huge Mistake In These Two New Extended Trailers For The Flash Season 3 Episode 2: "Paradox"

5 October 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After a summer-long buildup, the Flashpoint event ended up only lasting an episode, but judging by that ending, it looks like the repercussions may be here to stay. We have two awesome new trailers for next week's episode and maybe a couple teases for the weeks to follow. We catch the introduction of Barry's new co-worker Julian Albert, played by former Harry Potter villain Tom Felton, and then see the return of the heroic Jay Garrick, played by John Wesley Shipp. However, things start to get a little crazy after that with very brief looks at the origin stories of Kid Flash, Jesse Quick, Killer Frost, Vibe, Dr. Alchemy, The Rival, and many more. Oh and the return of Captain Cold as well as the dark and mysterious Harrison Wells. Check out the trailers below: The Aftermath - Barry (Grant Gustin) realizes the effects from Flashpoint are much greater than he thought. »

DC Comics Week: Exploring The Flash in Film and Television

5 October 2016 12:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Until very recently, The Flash was a popular comic book character predominantly unknown to mainstream Film and Television audiences. However, this was inevitably something that was due to change sooner or later. Any enthusiastic comic reader will tell you that they always knew Warner Bros. would utilize the scarlet speedster eventually. But to be honest, common sense and sound logic would also bring you to the same conclusion given the sheer popularity (and lucrative nature) of superheroes at present.

But let’s not forget, there are only so many times that you can watch Thomas and Martha Wayne get murdered before you begin to crave more. So, like Iron Man, Captain America and even Green Arrow before him, The Flash has now been placed at the forefront of pop culture and media entertainment. Considering the character has a vast range of abilities, story lines, incarnations and over seventy-five years’ worth of history, »

John Wesley Shipp Explains How His Jay Garrick Differs To Henry Allen In The Flash

During The Flash‘s second season, we learned that “Jay Garrick” was in fact the villainous Zoom. However, it was in the finale that we learned the real Jay (who hails from Earth-3) was the Man in the Iron Mask being held by Zoom on Earth-2, but the real twist was that he was the doppelganger of Barry’s recently murdered father Henry Allen.

John Wesley Shipp actually played The Flash in the 90s TV series, but when he was asked in a recent interview to explain the differences between his performance as Jay and Henry, the actor shed some light on both that and the sort of role we can expect the older speedster to play in The CW series.
