It was confirmed earlier this week by The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti that the second big bad for the show’s season three, Savitar, also known as the God of Motion, would be making his debut in the midseason finale.
Please be aware that there will be set photos that may or may not spoil upcoming events on The Flash.
We’ve seen Doctor Alchemy already in a couple of episodes, and he definitely will be taking front and center stage in this week’s episode, along with Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West. But what about Savitar?
Well, on Wednesday night, November 9, The Flash shot scenes in Vancouver’s Victory Square, Grant Gustin (Barry Allen), Candice Patton (Iris West), and a man in a motion capture suit were spotted filming a scene for the show’s eleventh episode.

Although there’s no way to tell who the man in the motion capture suit is, it’s easy to see that he’s clearly intimidating. He’s tall and towers over Iris and The Flash in the pictures. Could this be Savitar? If so, based on the pictures and set reports, it looks like he harms Iris in some way and The Flash runs in to catch her as she falls. I have no doubt that she’ll be ok and she’s only passed out.
This is all speculation, of course. There are a couple of other villains who have been on the show that have required motion capture suits. Chief among them being King Shark and Gorilla Grodd.
Do you think it could be Savitar or another villain like Grodd? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
The Flash debuts a new episode on November 15 at 8/7c on The CW.
