The Flash: Mark Hamill's Trickster Is an Evil Santa in New Promo for the Mid-Season Finale
Mark Hamill has found lots of post-Star Wars success playing whimsical comic book villains, including his iteration of the Trickster in both the 1990's and the current Flash series. Now, the Trickster is back just in time for the holidays, and he has a few- ahem- tricks up his sleeve (sorry):


In the mid-season finale, which airs on Tuesday, December 8, Mark Mardon is gung-ho about killing the Flash, while soon-to-be reformed villain Captain Cold isn't too sure, and seems poised to have an epiphany just in time for Legends of Tomorrow. Meanwhile, the Trickster is the creepiest Santa of all time, making an offer to roast chestnuts sound like a genuine threat.

Oh, and Wally West is coming, so that might be exciting, too.

Here's the official synopsis for the episode:

Opening quote
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.
