‘The Flash’ Trailer Teases First Look at Zoom

Two new trailers for “The Flash” offered some hints about season two, giving fans a first look at new villain Zoom and offering a tease about the fate of Firestorm.

After much speculation over the role Franz Drameh’s character, Jay Jackson, would play in The CW’s “Flash” and “Arrow” spinoff “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” a new promo released by The CW (which was subsequently taken down) implied that Drameh will appear at some point as the dominant form of Firestorm, a hero who was created by fusing together Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell). Since Garber has been announced as a series regular for “Legends” and Amell has not, Ronnie’s fate remains a mystery that will undoubtedly be solved before the spinoff debuts at midseason.

Drameh’s character has been described as “a former high school athlete, whose pro-career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meet as an auto mechanic, Jay will come to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew.”

The other promo offers a better look at some of the story elements for the second season, specifically the Earth-2 version of The Flash, Jay Garrick (played by Teddy Sears) as he bonds with our earth’s hero Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), along with a quick glimpse of Zoom voiced by Tony Todd.

Season 2 of “The Flash” premieres Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
