Barry Allen forms his own team of Rogues in The Flash season 9, episode 3 trailer. The Arrowverse is getting closer to finishing its longest-running series in the Greg Berlanti-produced franchise. The Flash season 9, which recently premiered this month, is telling Barry Allen’s final story in the Arrowverse. With a shortened season, the show starring Grant Gustin only has 11 episodes left to wrap up its remaining storylines for Team Flash. One of the first big bads this year is a new take on Red Death, who is one of the big speedster foes from the comics.
However, Red Death isn’t the only supervillain that Central City is getting invaded by in The Flash season 9. With the introduction of a new Captain Boomerang and Fiddler, the Rogues are slowly coming together again.
But as Red Death has her own set of Rogues, The Flash season 9, episode 3 will see Barry forming his batch of Rogues. The CW (via TV Promos) has released a trailer for “Rogues of War,” which will air on Wednesday, February 22. The footage sees Barry joining forces with multiple familiar Rogues. “Rogues of War” was written by Jess Carson and Jeff Hersh, with story by Sam Chalsen, while Brenton Spencer directed it. Check out the official synopsis as well as a gallery of promotional images below:
“Rogues of War” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)
ON THE MOVE – Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) start to put together the pieces of what’s happening in Central City and believe they know what the Rogues are after. Team Flash works together and recruits some unlikely allies to help, and the plan does not go as Team Flash expects. Meanwhile, Allegra (Kayla Compton) does her best to avoid having a conversation with Chester (Brandon McKnight). Brenton Spencer directed the episode with story by Sam Chalsen and written by Jeff Hersch & Jess Carson (#903). Original airdate 2/22/2023.
How Many Old Villains Are Returning In The Flash Season 9
The Flash season 9 is already lining up numerous foes for the final season. As shown in the trailer, Max Adler and Damien Potier are showing up next week as The Hotness and Goldface, respectively. Rainbow Raider, who was the first villain in Arrow and The Flash’s initial crossover, will be back in the coming weeks, as seen in one of the earlier trailers. The Flash is also reintroducing a post-Crisis on Infinite Earths version of Murmur which can be seen in the trailer for episode 3.
Another returning character in The Flash season 9 will be Matt Letscher as the original Eobard Thawne, a.k.a. the Reverse-Flash. This comes right after he resurfaced in The Flash season 8 before getting killed off. Letscher’s upcoming The Flash season 9 appearance will likely be related to some of the payoffs they are doing from The Flash season 1. Time will tell if Tom Cavanagh’s Reverse-Flash, who also died in The Flash season 8, will resurface in any capacity.
Given that this is The Flash’s final season, this is the final opportunity for the series to bring back any villain from past seasons. With the Rogues being such a huge part of The Flash’s mythology in the comics, it makes sense season 9 is using as many of them as they can this year. As the “Rogues War” intensifies next week in The Flash season 9, it will be intriguing to see how all of these characters clash.
