The Flash season 2, in terms of news and information, has slowed down in these last few months before the October premiere. More specifically, two months, or currently less than two months before the new season starts.
Much has been said about new villains, but there’s been little focus on new heroes or sidekicks. The Christian Post dropped some information about one of the two flashes in The Flash season 2. Wally West, one of the two new Flashes appearing in The Flash season 2 has already had his critics, but details are continuing to emerge.
Producer Gabrielle Stanton had some interesting things to say about Iris West’s cousin, and second modern Flash in DC Comics, that seem to indicate he shares a trait with a season 1 villain in how they introduce him.
“We are a doing our special Flash magic where we take a comic book character and give it just a little bit of a ‘Hmmm,’ so that you’re like, “Oh!”
The Flash producer went onto say that the audience won’t see Wally West/The Flash coming, seemingly alluding that he won’t immediately be seen as the DC Comics character, perhaps much like the Reverse-Flash.
“I don’t think the audience will see coming. He will definitely have a very interesting and close relationship with Team Flash.”
The International Business UK reported on the very little news that seems to exist for The Flash season 2’s second Flash, also known as Jay Garrick, who is to be played by Teddy Sears. So far, the golden age Flash, has an actor attached and now a photo.
Cisco Ramon will be exploring his meta human abilities that were hinted at in his conversation with Reverse-Flash in The Flash season 1, but so far the character’s name that he is to become has been mostly absent. Barry and Cisco seem like they will be the ones in deep reflection in season 2, but for Barry Allen/The Flash, it will be less about him and more about the sacrifice Eddie Thawne made for Central City and his friends.
For some odd reason, The Flash season 2 will start out a “few months” after the season 1 finale, which begs the question as to how they will explain the final moments of last season’s finale.
The Flash season 2 will bring a host of new villains, as Zoom is not the only villain coming to Central City. Comicbook reports that the CW will be introducing their own Dr. Light in The Flash/Arrow DC TV universe. However, it will be the female superhero version of Dr. Light, first referenced in Arrow season 2, episode 19 The Man under the Hood.
Kimiyo Hoshi is an ex-S.T.A.R. Labs employee, and probably will follow the metahuman/particle accelerator affected story line in some way.
The Flash season 2 is certainly turning out to be vastly different than season 1, and with a far more expanded universe than any other show. Between Arrow, The Flash, and as the Inquisitr previously mentioned, Legends of Tomorrow crossovers, DC Comics TV is a force to be reckoned with.
