UPDATED: New The Flash trailers feature our first look at Season 2's villainous speedster, Zoom, and a new Firestorm

The CW has unleashed a fresh new trailer for the upcoming second season of The Flash.

The exciting new promo gives us our first look at this season’s newest Big Bad: Zoom (voiced by horror icon Tony Todd). A DC Comics character, Zoom is another speedster who comes from the same alternate universe (that’d be Earth-2) as Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick, aka the Cimson Comet (I do love those awesome monikers), played by Teddy Sears.

Garrick is set to replace Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) as Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) new mentor this season, but don't worry! Cavanagh is back as a series regular as the real Wells, but from an alternate universe. Still, I have to admit what I'm looking forward the most to see is the “Flash of Two Worlds” team up in the face of this brand-new threat. How about you? Have a first look at Zoom below:


In The Flash Season 2, following the defeat of Barry Allen's arch-nemesis Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse Flash), Team Flash quickly turned their attention to the singularity swirling high above Central City, which fans last saw consuming everything in its path. Armed with the heart of a hero and the ability to move at super speeds, Barry charged into the eye of the singularity, but will he actually be able to save his city from impending doom?

The Flash premieres on Oct. 6 on The CW. Are you excited about the Scarlet Speedster’s return to our TV screen? Which new character are you the most excited to meet for the first time?

UPDATE: Hot on the heels of the new promo with Zoom, The CW has released a One Week Trailer which introduces us to the new Firestorm, Jay Jackson (Franz Drameh). Not much is known about the character besides the fact that he’ll be in Legends of Tomorrow, and he’s said to be the last person Professor Stein (Victor Garber) wants to be sharing Firestorm with.
