It’s “Flashpoint” time on The Flash as Barry Allen creates a very, very different alternate timeline which seems all fine and dandy at first, but then… well, let’s just say you need to see who it is who coins the term “Flashpoint” in this San Diego Comic-Con trailer for The Flash season three.
Also during the panel, The Flash writers Aaron and Todd Helbing revealed that the effects of “Flashpoint” won’t be something swiftly dealt with then forgotten. “This is something that is going to ripple throughout the whole season,” said Todd. “Obviously Barry grew up with a different family. His parents were still alive, Cisco has gone on to make some money. One of the effects is [Arrow’s] Diggle himself. You’ll have to tune in to see exactly how.”
This season will also introduce two new major villains.
“We’re doing a really cool thing this year,” said Todd. “We’re doing two big bads. One is a speedster that we’ll reveal later and the other, the one in the creepy mask, is Doctor Alchemy.”
He’ll be voiced by Tobin Bell (the Jigsaw films).
