The CW has released a brand new poster for the current season of The Flash, and it teases that Barry Allen is “speeding toward a showdown.”

Have a look at the poster down below!

On the whole, the poster isn’t too impressive. It does show off the new material of Barry’s suit, but it’s nothing really new. At the end of the day, it is just Barry’s upper body with a familiar logo. It would have been nice if the poster actually reflected the villain of the season.

So what will the showdown in question be? Well, so far in the season, they have been teasing some sort of confrontation between Barry and DeVoe (aka The Thinker). At the beginning of the season, it was The Thinker who helped to shake Barry Allen out of his weird Speed Force-induced delirium. Since then, it’s been a slow move to seeing how these two collide.

It’ll be interesting to see how the showdown plays out. In previous seasons, Barry’s gone up against Speedsters, and as such, the climaxes tend to revolve around running really fast. With that no longer a possibility, it’ll hopefully make things a lot more exciting this time around.

What do you think of this new poster? Let us know down below!

The Flash airs on The CW on Tuesdays at 8/7c.
