Even though The Flash is on a bit of a hiatus, there’s still been a bit to savor while the Scarlet Speedster and friends are away. With teases of returning villains, Vibe costume concept art, and news that Mirror Master and The Top will be showing up again soon, we’ve had a few things to tide us over. Now there’s one more thing to add to the list: a new “Behind the Visual Effects” video.
Primarily featuring the effects behind Gorilla Grodd and King Shark – The Flash‘s most visually complex villains to date – the video reveals the process to building these characters layer by layer, step by step. There are even a few moments dedicated to bringing digital Flash to life. The video is an in-depth look at some of the biggest visual effects scenes in the show and you can check out the whole thing below.

10 Deadliest Super Villain Groups In Comic Books
Everyone loves the hero, but the super villain gets to have all the fun. The Justice League and Avengers are great, but their foes are just as powerful. And, unlike their heroic counter parts, the villains have no problem being deadly on the battlefield.
Some villains are scary enough on their own (I’m looking at you Joker) but sometimes they need to team up to be able to meet their goal. Two heads are always better than one, even if their evil heads, and ten evil heads is even better. At the end of the day there are very few villains who can take down a full team of superheroes by themselves. It falls to super villains to come together and start alliances to earn any of the respect they so badly want.
