'The Flash' First Look: See Mark Hamill Reprise His Role as The Trickster from the Original '90s Series

James Jesse has had "20 years to come up with the perfect trick," reveals an exclusive CW promo


Superhero nerd history will be made on an upcoming episode of The Flash.

Mark Hamill, who originally portrayed The Trickster in the original Flash series on CBS, is returning 20 years later to reprise his role on The CW’s adaptation starring Grant Gustin.

An exclusive First Look at his appearance on the March 31 episode reveals that one of DC Comics’ most notorious villains has been in prison for 20 years – and has had “20 years to come up with the perfect trick.”

The promo – which teases the next three episodes starting March 17 – also gives us a sneak peek at a few other Flash villains, both new and returning.

Weather Wizard (Liam McIntyre) begins terrorizing Central City in “Out of Time”; in “Rogue Time,” airing March 24, Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) returns with little sister Lisa Snart (a.k.a. Golden Glider, played by Peyton List) in tow.

However, with all these meta-humans invading Central City, there’s just one that Barry (Gustin) has his sights set on – his mother’s killer.

To find out how Barry will bend time to seek vengeance for his mother and justice for his father, The Flash returns from hiatus March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
