The Flash season 3 episode 9 review: The Present

6 December 2016 7:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Dec 7, 2016

The Flash mid-season finale, The Present, was the most important episode of the year so far...

This review contains spoilers.

3.9 The Present

At this point, I don't know what else to say about The Flash Season 3. I was so thoroughly disillusioned by the back half of season two and not particularly thrilled about the use of Flashpoint as a major story driver early on that I was perfectly ready to be kinda psyched for this show to just be okay this year, and I would have probably been cool with that.

But no. Instead, The Flash has delivered the longest sustained run of exceptional episodes in the show's history so far this year. And the key to this might just be variety.

The Present couldn't possibly have been a bigger shift from Invasion! »

'The Flash' Winter Finale Recap: Does Barry Discover the Identity of Dr. Alchemy?

6 December 2016 12:02 PM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The previous episode of The Flash saw the series properly launch the big crossover. Now for the season 3 winter finale, The Flash stages a very different quasi-crossover. Barry crosses Earths to find Flash, Jay Garrick, battling his own supervillain, the Trickster. With John Wesley Shipp playing The Flash and Mark Hamill stepping back into the role of The Trickster, "The Present" really does feel like a continuation of the universe from the scarlet speedster's original TV debut in the '90s. Luckily, this episode is not just fan service and actually crafts an episode that appeals to new and old fans alike.

See Mark Hamill As Earth-3’s Trickster In New Clip From The Flash

6 December 2016 9:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If photos and an extended trailer weren’t enough to whet your appetite for the midseason finale of The Flash, The CW has now released a full clip ahead of tonight’s episode that sees the return of one of the most prolific men to portray supervillains over the past quarter century.

We are, of course, talking about Mark Hamill, who has played various iterations of both the Joker and the Trickster since the early 1990’s. Since reprising his role as the latter on The Flash, it became quite obvious from the start that this version of Trickster was written more like the Joker, with Hamill obviously using his now infamous character voice that was once exclusive to the Clown Prince of Crime. It’s as if the producers said, “hey, Mark, use your Joker voice when playing Trickster. We doubt a single fan will complain.”

Mark Hamill Channels His Iconic Take On The Joker In This Clip From Tonight's Episode Of The Flash

6 December 2016 7:32 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In tonight's instalment of The Flash, "The Present", Barry returns to Earth 3 to recruit Jay Garrick in an attempt to take down Savitar - but first he must help him solve a little Trickster problem. Some recent set pics and official stills revealed that Mark Hamill's Earth 3 incarnation of the villain seemed to be influenced by The Joker, and when you hear him speak in this new clip it'll leave little doubt that the Star Wars actor dipped into his acclaimed take on The Clown Prince of Crime from the classic Batman: The Animated Series in order to bring this version of James Jesse to life.

The Flash: John Wesley Shipp's Jay Garrick Initially Believes Savitar Is A Speed Force Myth

6 December 2016 3:24 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's not easy being The Flash right now. Not only did the hero alter his reality by time-travelling, but those same antics, as it turns out, were the catalyst for last week's invasion by the alien Dominators. Coupled with the fact that  there's an all-powerful Speed Force God named Savitar ready to eradicate him, an overwhelmed Barry will turn to Jay Garrick in tonight's mid season finale. However, according to actor John Wesley Shipp, Jay initially believes Savitar to be a myth.  “Well, to set it up, Jay’s not sure that Savitar even exists. He’s a Speed Force myth and — as an unseen, unknown fear — is even bigger than a fear that you know,” Shipp explained to Cbr. “First of all, Jay is surprised — maybe even a little miffed — that Savitar showed himself to Barry! I’ve known him as a myth my whole life, me being Jay, »

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.

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."

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 »
