We’ve got less than a week now before the new DC Comics superhero hit “The Flash” races back with its 10th episode, the midseason premiere, “Revenge of the Rogues.” Today, The CW has released an extended trailer for upcoming second half of the first season and you can check it out in the player below!
TheWrap, meanwhile, is reporting that “Dexter” star Devon Graye has been cast in the series’ upcoming 17th episode as the Axel Walker version of The Trickster. As reported late last year, Mark Hamill is already set to play the original Trickster, James Jesse, reprising the role from the 1990s “The Flash” series.
First, though, “Revenge of the Rogues,” airing Tuesday, January 20, will feature the return of both Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) as well as the debut of Pied Piper (Andy Mientus). The official episode description reads as follows:
Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold returns to Central City with a new hotheaded partner in tow – Mick Rory AKA Heat Wave. The duo plan to steal a multi-million dollar painting, but Cold has another agenda while in town – to set a trap for The Flash. Snart and Mick kidnap someone close to The Flash and threaten to kill them unless The Flash shows up for a battle of fire and ice. Barry tells Joe (Jesse L. Martin) he isn’t sure he should take on Snart again after the casualties that happened the last time they fought. Meanwhile, Barry asks Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to help him double his training efforts so he’s ready for the Reverse Flash when he returns to Central City. Iris (Candice Patton) deals with the aftermath of Barry’s confession, and Cisco makes the CCPD a new shield.
“Revenge of the Rogues” is directed by Nick Copus and written by Geoff Johns & Kai Yu Wu.
