The Flash ran full speed ahead into New York Comic Con this weekend, debuting a new sizzle reel that gives viewers some major insight to the second season. Based on the new footage shown, the theme for this season seems to be, “Let’s get everybody we can!”
Starting off with clips from the season premiere, the reel delves more into the overall arc of the season, as Jay Garrick explains that the singularity from the end of season 1 created a portal to a parallel universe. On this “Earth-2,” Jay is the Flash. He’s come to warn Barry and the team about the villain Zoom, who is intent on killing every speedster until he is the only one left.
Zoom’s plan seems simple on paper: he kidnaps metahumans from Earth-2 and transports them to Earth-1, telling them the only way home is to kill Barry. Some of the metahumans included are Atom-Smasher, Sand Demon, and Dr. Light. The video also shows Barry’s allies—new and old—as Firestorm and Kendra Saunders (Hawkgirl) both make appearances. Captain Cold and Vandal Savage are also shown, continuing to tease Legends of Tomorrow, premiering this February.
You can’t have all these characters show up and not have an appearance by Green Arrow, though. Oliver shows up at the end of the reel, and without spoiling anything: AWW, SNAP.
The Flash airs Tuesdays on the CW.
So what do you think? Are you even MORE excited for season 2? How many DC characters does it take to change a lightbulb? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
