The Flash debuts first look at Flashpoint
Flashpoint has finally come to life!
In season 3 of The Flash, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will find himself in an alternate timeline in which his mother and father are both no longer dead — but the world is much different than the one he left behind.
It’s a riff on the seminal Flash comic book storyline Flashpoint, in which Barry lands in an alternate timeline where his mother is no longer dead, and most of the world’s heroes are more like villains these days — Aquaman is at war with Wonder Woman; Batman is Thomas Wayne, not Bruce Wayne; Captain Cold is actually a Central City hero named Citizen Cold.
Check out some of the changes, including the return of the Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher), in the newly released photos from season 3:
The Flash returns Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
After the success of Arrow, Barry Allen (a.k.a. the Flash) gets his own CW treatment in this comic-themed spin-off.
