At the end of season two of “The Flash,” Barry Allen decided to break the timeline. In going back to save his mother from Reverse-Flash, he altered not only his own life but the life of his family and friends. But the season three trailer looks extremely promising and there is a lot to be excited for.

“The Flash” panel at San Diego Comic Con this year took place in Ballroom 20 and thankfully was longer than the fifteen lousy minutes we got last year. This year’s panel was forty five minutes long and some highlights included Jesse L. Martin and Grant Gustin engaging in a tap dance battle.

Below is a list of information that was released and/or appeared in the trailer about the upcoming season.

And make sure to check out the full trailer, which is pretty amazing!
