Yesterday, first premiere trailer of The Flash season 4 releases at Comic-con online. During San Diego Comic-Con, show runner Todd Helbing said that this season will be a different as compare to previous one and it will also separate this superheroes series from the other shows at the time of its launch. Because upcoming episodes will have not any serious or dire moments but it will be more fun to watch it for Flash Fans.
On the last season finale, Barry sacrifices himself and voluntarily enter into the speed force prison for Flashpoint timeline that he created. But after watching this new trailer, it seems to be depressions of team flash decreases and old team (including Caitlin) tries hard to get Barry back from the speed force. It looks like in this season, things getting much brighter and more fun as promises by Helbing.
The trailer is shown at Comic-Con feature a very different team Flash like never seen before. The team includes the same members but now led by Iris West (Candice Patton), Cisco & Wally’s friendship bond and also a new addition to the team, not new but Caitlin also joins the team again. On last finale season, he left the team flash after becoming Killer Frost. But God known, how she came back. We will know that soon.
At the end, we get to see some speedster running through the tunnel and Cisco try to trap him with his new unknown gadget (it look like speed force Bazooka).
But from the costume, it looks likes he is Barry, not present Barry Allen, but from the future 2024. Everyone thinking that he is Wally wearing Barry’s flash red suit. But that’s not so. You can clearly see the Wally standing behind the Cisco. So it is confirmed that this running speedster is Barry. The costume that he wears looks like from future 2024. Also, some new foe appears on the trailer.
The Samurai type villain could be Baron Katana who was a comic based villain back in the Silver Age of comics.
Also like I said in the previous article, Pee-a-Boo going to make an appearance.
In recent interview, Candice Patton said,
“The first premiere episode takes place six months in the future and we still don’t have Barry out of the Speed Force. Iris is really struggling to deal with that and she does it in her own way.”
According to the fan theory, there also a strong suggestion that this season likely to be taking the Rebirth Storyline and the Flash first episode title is ‘The Flash Reborn’. It shows some kind of reboot but not necessarily everything will change. Instead, the series will run on its correct track of comics with the original version of joyful Flash without holding any burden that he was carrying before.
This season we also get to meet a new character or may be some old character may return in the season 4. Neil Sandilands will be cast as new big villain Clifford DeVoe aka The Thinker who also been seen as the fastest Mind alive. Kim Engelbrecht will be seen as DeVoe’s right hand-the mechanic who is a highly intelligent engineer designs special devices for DeVoe. Danny Trejo (Machete), a breacher from earth-19. CW has not confirmed the cast for Elongated Man, but soon we will get that also.

As compared to first two seasons of the Flash, last season was a little bit slow. To ensure it won’t happen again Todd Helbing talk told CB,
“I’m not trying to say anything bad about season 3. I love season 3, and I love Savitar and I love the story we told but I think that’s about as dark as I ever want to go with the show. So yeah, I think that was a conscious effort of ours to really go back to everybody enjoyed being on this team and with each other, make the flash have fun again. I’m really excited about the script so far, there really really funny.”
During SDCC, Flash actor Grant Gustin said,
“It’s almost like a fresh start for me as an actor this year. The first episode is called ‘Reborn’, and it’s our take on Rebirth. It gives me an opportunity to let go of all the weight that we’ve kind of built up for the first three seasons, has held onto. But there are even some lines that reflect that for Barry that he is been able to cope and move on in a way that he never was able to in the past. So it gives me an opportunity to let go and have more fun than we had initially in season one.”
From this interview, it is suggested that this upcoming new season 4 will go to adapt the Rebirth storyline and fans will get to see the new and improve version of Flash.
So what do you think about the new Scarlet Speedster? Will this season going to be exciting or not???
