THE FLASH NYCC Sizzle Reel Teases Zoom, Dr. Light & Vandal Savage
And here you were, thinking how great it was just to see Jay Garrick...
Warner Bros. TV has officially released the two-minute sizzle reel from Season 2 of The Flash that debuted in the Empire Room at the 2015 New York Comic-Con. Among the upcoming Season 2 highlights are footage of new big bad Zoom, the Sand Demon, the Kimiyo Hoshi Doctor Light, Vandal Savage, the return of Oliver Queen to Central City, and more!
The sizzle reel opens with a voiceover from Candice Patton's Iris West, who says "People have heard the stories. They've read the articles. They've maybe even seen the Red Streak racing past them. But they've never seen The Flash. Central City believes in The Flash. So do I."
We then see footage from the series premiere, "The Man Who Saved Central City," featuring Adam "Edge" Copeland as Atom Smasher, followed by the quick cameo of Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick showing up at S.T.A.R. Labs to tell everyone "Your world is in danger."
"When you created the singularity above Central City," Jay explains to Barry, "you also created a portal connecting our two Earths. Where I came from, I was a speedster like you. They called me The Flash."
"Before I arrived on your Earth," continues Jay as we see images of him facing Zoom, "I was in a fight with a man named Zoom, and he will do whatever it takes to ensure he's the only speedster in any world."
As we see the Kimiyo Hoshi version of Doctor Light, Barry remarks to Jay, "Zoom has been sending metahumans from your world to fight me."
We see Zoom threatening Kett Turton as Sand Demon, telling him with the voice of Tony Todd, "You wanna go home? You only have to do one thing -- Kill the Flash."
Next, we see Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold showing off his cold gun to his father, Lewis Snart, played by Michael Ironside. "It's good to go out on a high note," Lewis says as he proceeds to shoot Barry Allen! (Yeah, right.)
Victor Garber's Professor Martin Stein is shown having trouble with his Firestorm transformation with Ronnie supposedly dead, while The Flash races up the side of a skyscraper to save a rapidly-falling Iris.
We're introduced to Shantel VanSanten as Patty Spivot and Ciara Renée as Kendra Saunders as Iris remarks in a voiceover, "This team that you have here, they will follow your lead, they will do what you say."
Casper Crump as Vandal Savage follows, saying "I can feel you out there. You don't yet know your destiny."
Zoom returns, telling The Flash "Never forget I am the fastest man alive!"
The Flash responds, "You wanna be me? Is that it? You wanna be a hero?"
"Heroes die," Zoom responds, with the Flash countering "Only if you can catch them."
The last scene we see is Barry and Oliver Queen standing in line at CC Jitters. Oliver notices a video display asking people to try 'The Flash,' a one brew coffee with one shot of espresso shaped like The Flash's lightning bolt chest emblem. "Since when is that a thing?" Oliver asks, a bit jealous.
"Uh...About eight months," Barry answers. "Maybe if you save Star City, you might get one, too."
