The Flash Season 3 trailer turns Earth upside down

Flashpoint is the buzzword in The Flash Season 3 trailer

‘Reinvention’ seems to be the word of the day for Warner Bros’ shows on The CW, and no show seems to have taken this mantra more at its word than The Flash.

Following on from the death of his father at the end of Season 2, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) finally did what he’d held off doing since the beginning: going back in time and preventing his mother from being murdered.

But while it appears to have worked (in the new timeline he lives a happy life with both parents alive and well), something seems to be amiss. Iris (Candice Patton) and Joe (Jesse L Martin) don’t know him, his friendship with Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) isn’t the same, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) has grown arrogant with power, and Eobard Thawne is chained up in his basement, sowing as many seeds of doubt as he possibly can. Oh, and Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) is now the Kid Flash, and there’s a mysterious new evil speedster in town. So there’s plenty going on.

In any case, below is the first trailer for Season 3 of The Flash:

The Flash: Season 3 will air on The CW in the US on 4 October 2016, and in the UK on Sky1 at a later date. You can download The 25 Greatest DC Comics Ever digital edition from now. For all the latest movie news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
