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 »

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. »

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.
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 »
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 »
- Michael Connally
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?

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.

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 »
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. »

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. »
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, »

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.

In a shocking turn of events, The Flash's season two finale revealed that the man behind the iron mask throughout the entire season was Jay Garrick, aka The Flash of Earth 3, who also happens to be Henry Allen's Earth 3 counterpart. So far, John Wesley Shipp has only had to worry about being a father to Barry (Grant Gustin) for the past two seasons, but now that he's got a suit of his own, he'll be taking an entirely different approach when working with Barry as Jay Garrick. "I’ve had a blast setting the template for Jay and making sure that his temperature is almost the polar opposite of Henry," Shipp told Entertainment Weekly. "Henry’s very warm, very emotionally invested in Barry and Barry’s well being. With Jay, it’s more like, “Okay, I’m the keeper of the Speed Force, you’re a new Flash, »
Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers for Season 2 of The Flash
Going into Season 2 of The Flash last year, I have to say, there were some concerns. It seemed like the TV showrunners were throwing in everything and the kitchen sink into the story. From Zoom to the multi-verse, multiple Flashes, and everything in between, it felt like it would be easy for things to get out of hand. Would they actually be able to tell the story they want without confusing the heck out of their audience?
Surprisingly, while the series had its trademark problems -- dumb pseudoscience, along with plotlines that fall over if you press on them too hard -- it still managed to be an emotionally fulfilling season.
One of the coolest callbacks it had came in the form of Jay Garrick -- no, not the Jay Garrick they introduced at the beginning of the season, but »

While it's well known that actor John Wesley Shipp portrayed The Flash in the eponymous 1990's television series (before his role as Barry's father, Henry Allen), season 2 of the recent CW series decided to shake things up by giving Shipp the role of original Speedster Jay Garrick as well, revealing him to be the man in iron mask at the conclusion of the season. Many thought this was a fitting tribute to Shipp's time in the role, but according to the actor himself, he views his Jay Garrick as his version of Barry Allen, 25 years later. "I figured Jay is my version of Barry, 25 years later, essentially. So I went back and I watched a couple of episodes of the 1990/91 version to kind of remind myself what I did," Shipp told ComicBook.com. "[Jay] is much more reminiscent of my Barry Allen from 25 years ago than my Henry Allen. I went »

Whenever a season finale ends on a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, the challenge to pay it off in a satisfying way can often be too much for a given show to bear. When Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) travelled back in time in the season 2 finale to save his mother (Michelle Harrison) from the Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher), longtime fans of DC Comics knew exactly what was coming next: the show’s version of the popular 2011 Geoff Johns/Andy Kubert comic Flashpoint. Once it was announced that The Flash season 3 would indeed premiere with an episode bearing that very same title, discussion then turned to exactly what elements The CW series would take from the comics and how it would serve the story at hand.
For those unfamiliar, Flashpoint (the comic, not the TV episode) sees The Flash rescue his mother during his childhood and inadvertently create »

In Season 3’s second episode, titled “Paradox” and airing Oct. 11, Barry realizes the effects from Flashpoint are much greater than he thought. On top of that, he meets co-worker Julian Albert (played by Felton) and is surprised by the new forensics wizard’s immediate disdain for him.
“We went two seasons with Barry in this CSI lab in Ccpd with no one really with him,” executive producer Todd Helbing tells TVLine. »
One of the fan favorite pairing from the fan-favorite Young Justice animated series was Flash (Barry Allen), Kid Flash (Wally West) and uh...Flash (Jay Garrick). We may get to see a live-action version of that group in The CW's third season of Flash as Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) will appear in the second episode as confirmed in these new stills. Speaking of Young Justice, another key Speedster in the series was Impulse...how many more seasons do you think it will take before the show introduces the time-traveling grandson of Barry and Iris? In the comics, Impulse actually trained under Wally before eventually serving as an apprentice to Max Mercury. It would be very easy for The Flash showrunners to tweak that origin into Impulse training under Barry before serving under Jay. The Flash season 3 kicks off next Tuesday at 8/7c on The CW. “The Flash “Paradox”— (8:00-9:00 p. »
The Flash is ready to come back to The CW, and he'll be doing so next week! Now that Season 3 is almost upon us, we've been graced with previous images for various episodes, and I think the ones for episode two ("Paradox") might interest you.
The CW has also released a synopsis for The Flash "Paradox":
The Aftermath — Barry (Grant Gustin) realizes the effects from Flashpoint are much greater than he thought.
Meanwhile, Barry meets new co-worker Julian Albert (Tom Felton) and is surprised by Julian’s immediate disdain for Barry.
It's obvious that the episode wants to continue to play with the themes of the Flash: Paradox storyline from the comics, but that they've made the decision to scale »

While we knew that John Wesley Shipp would be returning as Henry Allen in season 3 of The Flash as part of the altered Flashpoint timeline, it seems the actor will also be returning as Earth 3's Jay Garrick a lot sooner than expected! The CW has now released more photos from season 3's second episode, entitled "Paradox". Not only do we get a look at Garrick, but we also see more of Joe, Iris, and Barry squaring off against Todd Lasance's Rival, and more of Tom Felton's mysterious Julian Dorne. The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on the CW. "Paradox" airs Tuesday, October 11. The Flash: “Paradox” The Aftermath — Barry (Grant Gustin) realizes the effects from Flashpoint are much greater than he thought. Meanwhile, Barry meets new co-worker Julian Albert (Tom Felton) and is surprised by Julian’s immediate disdain for Barry. »
