New photos from the season premiere of Arrow and The Flash have been released. Let’s break them down below.
New photos from the upcoming season premiere show Oliver in the middle of a street fight with some Russian gang members. They also spotlight the return of Oliver’s buddy, Anatoly Knyazev (David Nykl). The mob seem to pose a threat to Oliver (Mayor Queen) and his city during season 5 it seems, but the more significant threat will be that of Prometheus, who is seen for the first time here fully suited up. Willa Holland’s Speedy is also shown.
Arrow premieres October 5, 2016 at 8:00 pm.
The photos include shots of Barry Allen and his happy parents, Henry and Nora after Barry went back in time and saved Nora from being murdered by the Reverse Flash. We also see the Reverse Flash. He’s behind bars, which suggests that this is the Flashpoint timeline created by Barry’s jump back in time.
There’s also shots of Wally West in his Kid Flash costume. We’ve seen the costume in promo images before, but The CW hadn’t confirmed when in the season Wally would be suiting up with Barry. We can now tell that it’s in the season premiere, which suggests Wally may only be Kid Flash in the Flashpoint universe, but they are both wearing their suits which is interesting.
The Flash premieres Tuesday, October 4 at 8:00 pm!
