For the uninitiated, Flashpoint was a massive DC Comics library “reboot” facilitated by Barry’s trip back in time to save his mother. After doing so, he wakes up back in Central City, confused by the changes to the world that he gradually lays witness to. For one, Barry doesn’t have his powers.
Indeed, as seen in the trailer above, Barry and Iris have never met, Joe is no familial father figure, Cisco is the richest man in America and the resident speedster is Wally West aka Kid Flash!
As such, you can’t fault Barry for sensing that something just ain’t right!
Last month, Flash star Grant Gustin tweeted out the Season 3 premiere title, “Flashpoint,” declaring: “This is not a drill.” He then added, “We’re definitely doing this [Flashpoint] thing our own way…. This will be its own thing.”
New for Season 3 is Harry Potter vet Tom Felton, playing Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry than just his good guy reputation, while one disclosed twist finds Wally West suiting up as the speedster Kid Flash.
