The CW has released the first batch of official images from the season two premiere of The Flash, and there are a lot of very interesting reveals among them. The majority focus on the battle between The Fastest Man Alive and Atom-Smasher, a villain who hails from Earth-2. He’ll be played by Adam “Edge” Copeland in the series, a former WWE Superstar and the star of the recently cancelled Haven.
Also highlighted is Central City’s day of celebration for The Flash after he saved them from the Singularity which was opened during the season one finale. There’s also a glimpse of Cisco making a key alteration to Barry Allen’s costume as he removes the old logo and replaces it with one which resembles the version from the comic books.

However, by far the biggest surprise here is the return of Harrison Wells! We’ve known for a while that Tom Cavanagh would return for season two of The Flash, but it quickly becomes apparent here that he’s going to play a role in the present day adventures of Team Flash rather than in flashbacks or something similar. Is he from an alternate timeline, or another Earth-2 refugee? That remains to be seen, but another possibility is that Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash somehow found a way to survive being erased from time…
The Flash returns to The CW on October 6th with “The Man Who Saved Central City.”
