The upcoming eighth season of The CW DC Comics series The Flash is set to premiere next month, and will kick off with a crossover event consisting of the first five episodes. The crossover, titled “Armageddon” will be different from previous Arrowverse crossovers such as Crisis On Infinite Earths given that it will exclusively be part of The Flash, but will implement characters from other shows and previous events. One character making his return is Ryan Choi AKA Atom (Osric Chau).
New set photos from The Flash Season 8 give us a glimpse at Osric Chau in the Atom suit. You can check out the photos down below:
