Mark Hamill will reprise his role as The Trickster for CW's The Flash

12.08.2014

If any of your recall the short-lived Flash TV series that hit in 1990, you may also remember Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, playing The Trickster. If not, you're in for a real treat! This role certainly paved the way for him to create one of the definitive portrayals of The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, and it seems that with all of the popularity CW's newer Flash series has been getting, Mark Hamill will reprise this role once more!

According to the character description, Hamill will return in a brand new interpretation of James Jesse (aka The Trickster). In this new iteration, The Trickster is an anarchist terrorist con man serving a life sentence in Iron Heights. The Trickster will help Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) to foil city-wide attacks of a wannabe Trickster that's following in the original's footsteps. It's also worth nothing that this episode will reunite him with John Wesley Shipp, who played the original Flash in 1990. The episode is set to air sometime in 2015.

Aside from The Flash, you can see Mark Hamill next in a little movie called STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS on December 18, 2015

They have to get him back in that outfit.

Was so thrilled that John Wesley Shipp was cast as Barry's dad, this just sweetens the deal.

Yeah, they'll definitely need to update the costume. The above looks more Cock Knocker than Trickster to me......

I actually liked the old Flash series

And the Trickster episode it the ONLY one I have yet to see. But he new Flash/Arrow shows have no appeal to me.

Yet another example of how good the DC tv-verse is. Between this and the animated DC world how on earth has it taken the cinematic universe so long to kick in to action. when they have such excellent examples of how to pull it off with their own characters.

i have been asking myself this forever.

The tv department and movie department are separate and dont care about what each other are doing. For some reason WB cannot get their shit together for movies. Their cartoons kick all kinds of ass and their shows are pretty good (Gotham is kinda meh, but Constantine rocks).
Sure batman and superman get the A treatment but other characters are completely forgotten or put through the shitter.
I am hoping now with Batman vs superman we finally get

Still cant believe how lame the new Flash suit is. How is it that a suit made 25 years ago is FAR SUPERIOR compared to that crap hes running around in today.

Nobody tricks the Trickster.

I love how this new show is honoring the last one.
Bringing back Shipp and Hamill as well as Amanda Pays as Tina Mcgee is really cool and a great treat for the fans of the original.
