The Flash has unveiled a new look at its ambitious Armageddon crossover event, which is set to see Barry Allen team up with several other Arrowverse characters.
On November 16, the superhero show returns for its eighth season, with a five-episode event in which the titular speedster enlists the help of wife Iris (Candice Patton), Supergirl’s Alex Danvers/Sentinel (Chyler Leigh), Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning (Cress Williams), Ryan Wilder/Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) and Mia Queen/Green Arrow (Katherine McNamara).
Ray Palmer/Atom (Brandon Routh) and Ryan Choi/Atom (Osric Chau) will also be joining the fight, as the suited-up do-gooders face off against Tony Curran’s telekinetic alien Despero.
He’s not the only one they’re tasked with beating though, which is presumably why Barry needs the assistance, because Tom Cavanagh and Neal McDonough will be reprising their roles as Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash and Damien Darhk – and no doubt causing havoc in Central City and beyond.
“I’m asking you to save the world,” Barry begs his pals in the recently released teaser. (Beyond, indeed).
In the run-up to the first instalment, the programme took to Twitter to share an official poster for the event alongside the caption, “It’s going to take everything they have”, which left fans excited as to what’s to come.
“Can’t wait to see Iris & Ryan meet, become friends and kick ass,” one excited follower replied, as another said: “Cannot wait for the show to come back and see #WestAllen on my screen, looking forward to see Iris and Ryan share a screen together!! Love these Queens!!”
The Flash airs on The CW in the US, while Sky Showcase and NOW release episodes in the UK.
