It 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.
