Hamill played the villainous role in two episodes that aired in 1991, and he also voiced the character in the animated 'Justice League' TV series.

"Having Mark reprise his role as The Trickster was on our original wish list when we were planning our version of The Flash," series executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement to HitFix, which originally reported the news. "Christmas and Chanukah came early for us this year when he said yes! We are beyond humbled and excited to have him joining us for another round of deadly trickery!"
