Our first glimpse of Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) was in a trailer released last week, where he issues a warning to Barry and his team, but now a new behind-the-scenes trailer shows the first meeting between both Flashes. In the comics, Jay Garrick was the very first Flash, with Barry Allen debuting in 1956. In Flash of Two Worlds, it is revealed that both of them were from alternate worlds in the “multiverse” called Earth 1 and Earth 2, which will be explored in Season 2.
Other new characters arriving this season are Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, Michael Ironside as Lewis Snart, father of Captain Cold (aka Leonard), Shantel VanSanten, as Patty Spivot, Violett Beane as Jesse Quick, Demore Barnes as Henry Hewitt, Adam Copeland as the Atom Smasher, and Tony Todd as Zoom, the major villain of the new season. THE FLASH will also feature two characters from the midseason series, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: Falk Hentschel‘s Hawkman and Casper Crump‘s Vandall Savage. Also returning are Gorilla Grodd, Heatwave (Dominic Purcell), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and his sister, Golden Glider (Peyton List). Tom Cavanagh will also return as Harrison Wells/Reverse Flash but show producers have already said he won’t be interacting with Barry since his departure to Earth 2 in the season finale. It is uncertain how he will fit into the storyline at this point.
Check out the trailer below.
THE FLASH returns Oct. 6 at 8PM on THE CW.
