Black Flash To Appear On Multiple DC TV Shows

The Flash Black Flash DCTVIt looks like Savitar isn’t the only speedster villain that The Flash will be dealing with this season. Entertainment Weekly revealed today that not only will Black Flash be appearing in Season 3, but that he might be appearing on multiple DC TV shows, per show-runner and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. During the ongoing Television Critics Association Press Tour, Kreisberg teased how the character will be returning this spring.

“You might be seeing him on multiple shows. He will [be] the classic comic book Grim Reaper aspect. It’s just going to be on multiple shows. He’s a classic character and we have storylines on multiple shows that fit having him return. There’s something so scary about him, even scarier than when he was just a man because now he is the Grim Reaper, he is like the Devil. How do you stop the Devil? It presents an interesting challenge for the heroes of the respective shows in which he appears.”

In the season two finale of The Flash, we saw Barry Allen battle the villainous Hunter Zolomon a.k.a. Zoom, played by Teddy Sears, who had been terrorizing the heroes of Central City as well as the Multiverse last season. While Hunter didn’t bite the dust, he did turn into a very familiar figure from the mythology as two Time Wraiths caused him to transform into the one and only Black Flash. Kreisberg didn’t specify though if we will be seeing Sears reprise the role and given that the actor is busy with the upcoming FOX show, 24: Legacy, we’ll just have to wait and see.

    It’s not hard to figure out that he will be appearing on Legends as well, considering Eobard has probably been messing with time too much.

    • Peter James

      If he’s like the Grim Reaper of the Speed Force, then time (and timeline changes) are irrelevant to him since death is universal in all timelines and time periods.

      It would actually – in a certain way – make more sense for him to appear there as well (due to Eobard’s presence there) than just on the Flash alone.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    Do we get a chinese, asian, latino and mexican Flash too?

    • Peter James

      Mexican is not really a race,….
      Neither is “Latino” for that matter.
      (nor Chinese to be sure).

      (Hint: one of those is a nationality and the other two are ethnicities at best.
      Actually 2 of them are nationalities with one of those nationalities doubling as an ethnicity).

      • Jason Scarpelli

        Never said they were all specifically races, nationalities and or ethnicities. Just presented a sarcastic question.

  • Marquis de Sade

    Have y’all noticed how seemless The Berlanti-ran DCTV is humming in comparison to the glaring ineptness that is dceu? – It’s like NIGHT and DAY!

    • Peter James

      Just because it’s “running well” and humming in comparison doesn’t mean it’s actual quality.

      Something can run well and still be crap (quality-wise).
      Which,……..let’s face it,….DCTV mostly is.

      • Marquis de Sade

        “Crap (quality-wise)” by whose standards? Yours?

      • CoolAssPuppy

        The writing and quality ARE suspect, I agree. The morality play and questions each episodes pose are done in a ham-fisted manner that can be infuriating at times. But I have to keep reminding myself that the show is written for my 13 year old niece and is an enjoyable distraction and opportunity to watch something with her that we both enjoy. (Plus, Legends is actually pretty good this season)

        Put another way: not everything has to win an Emmy and not everything has to be analyzed in considerable depth. Sometimes a show can just be good enough.

        FWIW, I just finished bingeing all the old 90s Star Trek shows. I’d say 80-90% of the episodes are complete dreck. But the rest were really, really good. So, for every boring episode of Arrow we get, sometimes we get a really fun Flash + Supergirl crossover. I’ll take it.

  • Steve Steve

    This whole Deadsploitation movement is sickening. Like really, the vast majority of people who are dead don’t move around at all; and yet, here we are perpetuating the stereotype!
