There is a lot of anticipation for the back half of the first season of CW’s The Flash. The series is firing on all cylinders (as I have noted in our reviews of the show!), and the best is truly yet to come. Not the least of which is due to Mark Hamill coming to the show to reprise his role of The Trickster from the 1990’s series.

When asked about becoming The Trickster again, Hamill was very happy about talking about it.

“Well listen, it’s really in the embryonic stages. We discussed it over the phone. I like these guys, what they’ve already done with the show. I’m a fan. I had watched all seven or eight episodes that they had at the time. When they asked me to be a part of it, the last thing I was thinking was that I would be returning to that specific role, but I think you’re going to be really pleased with what they’ve come up with. It was totally unexpected.”

Interesting…well, Hamill will appear in the 17th episode of the Flash. Stay tuned for more news, and reviews when Flash returns on January 19th!
