Mark Hamill is deliciously creepy in new promo for the mid-season finale of The Flash

“What do you say, speedfreak. You wanna roast chestnuts?”

Central City is preparing to celebrate Christmas, and the Weather Wizard has liberated Captain Cold and the Trickster from Iron Heights and formed a new company of rogues. Their goal? Kill the Flash (Grant Gustin).

The CW has released a new promo for the mid-season finale of The Flash -- which is titled “Running to Stand Still” -- in which Luke Skywalker Mark Hamill looks and sounds wonderfully creepy as the unhinged Trickster-dressed-as-Santa. Bad Santa.

Featuring the return of Spartacus star Liam McIntyre as the Weather Wizard, Mark Hamill as the Trickster and Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, the upcoming episode will also feature the arrival of a new West family member: Wally West, played by Keiynan Lonsdale (Insurgent, The Divergent Series: Allegiant).


Here is the episode synopsis:

MARK HAMILL, WENTWORTH MILLER AND LIAM MCINTYRE RETURN; KEIYNAN LONSDALE JOINS THE CAST AS WALLY WEST — When Mark Mardon AKA The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) returns to break Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and James Jesse AKA The Trickster (guest star Mark Hamill) out of Iron Heights, Barry (Grant Gustin) must stop these rogues from taking over Central City during Christmas. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) meet Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale). Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg.

Are you looking forward to Mark Hamill's return as the villainous Trickster on the superhero show? Do you think Captain Cold will turn on the rogues and help Team Flash?

The Flash airs Tuesday night on The CW.
