As we’ve been seeing over the course of the last few weeks, Barry Allen and the gang at STAR Labs are revving up to return with an all-new season of ‘The Flash’. And even up to the very last minute, we’re getting some awesome new looks at the upcoming second season. Ahead of the Scarlet Speedster’s return to The CW tomorrow night, the network has released some new clips to get fans excited for a trip to the Multiverse.
In these sneak peeks at the season two premiere of ‘The Flash,’ we see that a hero’s work is truly never done. First, as Central City looks to celebrate their speedy superhero and his various acts of valor, someone drops in to crash the party. Actually, I should say that he plans to smash the party because the villainous individual in question is Earth-2’s own Atom Smasher, who is played by WWE Hall of Famer and ‘Haven’ star Edge (aka Adam Copeland). Then in the second clip, Barry looks to be in a tough spot as he goes head to head with a few long-time foes (who are actually spinning off into their own series ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ very soon). But in the nick of time, a fiery friend provides the fastest man alive with some assistance. You can check out both clips below, followed by the official synopsis of tomorrow’s episode:
Picking up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, Barry is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie’s death. Concerned about putting his friends in danger, Barry has pushed everyone away and has chosen to protect the city on his own. When a meta-human named Atom Smasher attacks the city, Iris tells Barry that he needs to let his friends help him protect the citizens of Central City. Meanwhile, Cisco helps Joe with his Meta Task Force.
