Watch: ’The Flash’ Season 2 Promo Teases Atom Smasher … and a Flash-Signal?

     August 18, 2015


The first season of The Flash left off with a singularity event that threatened to destroy the entire world, but a new promo for The Flash Season 2 doesn’t address that. It gets sorted, ok. Probably something to do with the Speed Force … or not … but it’s going to be fine. So we can focus on other things, like this Flash-signal …

Let’s back up; we haven’t gotten a full trailer for The Flash Season 2 yet, but this micro-sized promo is full of interesting things. There’s Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), who will presumably be building up his story arc in preparation for his role in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but there’s also our first glimpse at Atom Smasher (Adam Copeland), as well as a Flash-signal. As in a Bat-Signal? As in this is The Flash not Arrow so why is Batman being ripped off? (Zing! Arrow, I love you but you know it’s true).

Anyway, see for yourselves below, and then tell me what this all means regarding Jay Garrick, Earth 2, or just what. Is it all a dream? Is it a terrible miscalculation? Will the show explain it away with a joke that Cisco makes in a super meta reference to Batman? We’ll find out fairly soon — The Flash Season 2 premieres Tuesday, October 6th on the CW.
