We knew that Mark Hamill was coming to The Flash as The Trickster – a character he played in the original Flash series –  and we knew that in the story he would be a retired and imprisoned villain called James Jesse who was annoyed when someone picked up his name.

Well, the person taking over The Trickster mantle is Dexter’s Devon Graye who’ll play Axel Walker.

Hamill will be something of a Hannibal Lecter in the upcoming episode, telling Barry Grant AKA Flash how to stop his new namesake…

Check out the image that has popped up on Instagram below – this is a pretty outlandish costume. Fair play.

The episode airs on March 10th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
