Barry Allen and The Atom Team up in The Flash Season 8 Premiere Pics

The CW’s schedule says that it’s almost time for Barry Allen and his friends to return on-air. Next week, The Flash will start its eighth run at the television network, and it will do it with a stylish five-part crossover called The Flash: Armageddon. The massive storyline will see the titular hero facing Despero, who will prove too much of a challenge for Barry. That’s why plenty of his friends from other CW shows will jump in to help the fastest man alive.

The recently dropped set of promotional photos shows that Brandon Routh will reprise The Atom character for the occasion. Dr. Ray Palmer has recently returned on-screen in the Arrowverse in the 100th episode of Legends of Tomorrow. His latest appearance on The Flash dates back to the third installment of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover in 2019.
