    Mark Hamill reprising his role as the Trickster is pretty awesome.

    Glad to see that they're getting actors from the previous Flash TV series into the new one and Mark Hamill as the Trickster ices the cake. I wonder how long will it be until they have Kyle Gallner reprise his role as Bart Allen.

    I'm kind of curious: would they have him play the Trickster the same way, or would they add a sinister element to it?

    I'm guessing he'll be played a bit more like "Return of the Joker".Somewhat more reserved.But I'm hoping he'll retain his lunacy.Such as changing personalities (I.E. a pianist,magician,etc) and using crazy props.

    I'm sure he won't be wearing a cape and tights again,but I'd love to see him out and about wearing something flamboyant.:woot:

    I CALLED IT!!!! I'm so happy to be right, I hope they use Shirley Walker's Trickster theme. Best Casting since John Wesley Shipp

    I've always felt he was ashamed of the 90s show and his performance in it b/c I've never seen an interview of him reflecting on his experience being on it. Plus at conventions he never seem to mention anything related to the Flash show. Which is why I never believed he would make a guest appearance (let alone reprise his role as the Trickster) for this modern take. So this is great news b/c I've always liked his portrayal of the Trickster in the 90s show. Excited for what he'll bring to this version.

    Eh, I figure that's probably more because the 90's show was very shortlived and for the most part not many people remembered it or were aware it existed at all, Hamill was just a part of much bigger and more memorable things that people were much more interested in asking him about.

    Close enough to what we'll see.
    Hamill's return for the role is awesome.

    Then you must be forgetting the Flash and substance episode where Trickster was voice by Mark, as well as designed to look like his Trickster. Even in personality it was arguably closer to his 1990 appearance than the comics.

    Looks like we'll see Hamill in his Trickster uniform after all.

    I hope this is like an annual thing. So cool that he still has time for the character after the Star Wars sequel trilogy starting ramping up.

    For those that don't know, he also voiced the Trickster on Justice League Unlimited.

    The same character on three different shows in three different decades. That's pretty cool.

    Hamill owned this episode. His voice is total Joker, but so good.

    Mark Hamil as the Trickster is fantastic

    I love the way he is doing his Joker voice but the tone of it he went for when he was playing a scene more sinister rather than for laughs

    Good news, Golden Glider has already appeared in a few episodes so far

    And Mirror Master will be appearing this season! :awesome:

    Abra Kadabra kind of doesn't really belong amongst the Rogues. His premise should have him as a solo villain, whose rather out of their league.

    We need to have an episode based on the story where he turns The Flash into a puppet :up:
