The Flash gave us a speedy look at Season 2 the other day, and while a full trailer seems to be lagging behind, The CW has given us another burst. See The Flash’s new Season 2 duds in action, and find out what Legends of Tomorrow put in an appearance by the latest teaser footage!

The early timing of Comic-Con 2015 prevented The Flash or Arrow from debuting any new footage of the fall premiers, despite myriad set photo teases, but it seems Barry Allen has won the race to get some footage out there. Watch The Flash face off against Atom Smasher, and check out Barry’s Bat-Signal in our first official Season 2 teaser!
We’ve known for some time that The Flash would introduce a second (now third) speedster in Wally West, revealed last week in casting Keiynan Lonsdale, though the character’s familial relationship was left somewhat unclear. New showrunner insight teases the speedsters’ relationship, while Season 2 has also begun casting DC villain (or hero?) Doctor Light.
We’ve known since The Flash’s first season finale that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would put in an appearance alongside Barry Allen, cemented at Comic-Con 2015 with the casting of Teddy Sears, and now the CW drama pays homage to its DC roots in a major way. Check out our first look at Flash Season 2's Jay Garrick, recreating a classic comic cover!
By now, a good chunk of Supergirl fans have had an opportunity to check out the pilot, though those hungry for new DC details needn’t wait until the October premiere. In addition to a new trailer, CBS’ new series drops intel on possible Arrow and Flash crossovers, an appearance from the big man himself, along with DC figures like Red Tornado, Non and more.
As if all The Flash’s timey-wimey travel and alternate universes weren’t already giving us headaches, the CW series has thrown yet another famous speedster into the mix. DC ‘Kid Flash’ Wally West will speed through Central City in Season 2, as portrayed by Insurgent star Keiynan Lonsdale.
Just yesterday, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow awoke one of its heaviest hitters in casting Hawkman for the 2015 Arrow / Flash crossover, and so too has its opposing evil ridden. Danish actor Casper Crump will play the immortal role of DC’s Vandal Savage, also first appearing in the crossover special.
In case Mark Hamill’s “Tricksters” return didn’t drive the point home, our sleek, modern CW Flash has tremendous reverence for the old 1990 CBS series, finding a place for nearly all of its stars. That reverence just kicked into overdrive, as all of the original Flash series is now available to stream online with CW Seed.
A few weeks ago, fans learned the exciting DC news that not only would Hawkman join Ciara Renee’s Hawkgirl in 2016's Legends of Tomorrow, but also that we’d meet the character even earlier on either Arrow or The Flash. As it turns out, both! Reckless star Falk Hentschel will don Hawkman’s wings, first appearing as Carter Hall in the end-of-year crossover event.
A few days ago, Arrow producers offered a bit more insight into the Legends of Tomorrow table-setting both it and The Flash would endeavor in their new episodes this fall. Not only does that apparently extend to the introduction of Hawkman as well, but so too do we have our first real character details of the Legends incarnation.
