With Season 2 of The CW’s The Flash now in our rear-view mirror, it’s time to look at what lies ahead for the Grant Gustin-headlined show.
Given the decades of comic book history that The Flash has, there’s so much potential in terms of what heroes and villains could turn up in the future of the Scarlet Speedster. All that we know for sure about the upcoming third season is that it is to be the show’s take on the fan-favourite Flashpoint comic book arc.
In that story, Barry Allen goes back in time to save his mother from dying, but in doing so that creates a completely different ‘present day’ that sees the world in chaos. Essentially, Barry unwittingly dooms the entire planet by making the decision to save his dear old mum. With some take on that arc set to play out in the show’s next season, that largely means that all bets are off when looking at what lies ahead for the series.
Regardless of how Flashpoint is handled, though, what we have here are ten characters who could (and hopefully will) arrive in the streets of Central City when The Flash returns later this year.
