Want to know who Barry will be fighting in the mid-season premiere of The Flash next week? You got it – Entertainment Weekly announced that Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica) has been cast as the DC Comics baddie The Turtle who has the ability to slow down time, which can’t be something Barry will enjoy. The show-runner Andrew Kreisberg teased this about The Turtle’s role in the premiere:
“In a surprisingly funny twist, Cisco [Carlos Valdes] has actually been hunting The Turtle the entire series. To Barry’s surprise, everybody knows about Cisco’s hunt for the great white whale, which is The Turtle; he’s the only one who didn’t know about it. We love the idea that there was a villain out there that they knew about, but they just haven’t bothered to tell the audience about yet. All Barry wants to do is get faster, because if he can get faster, he can take on Zoom. He’s going up against a villain who is literally slowing him down. This is one of our best episodes coming back that we’ve ever done. It feels big and emotional.”
The Flash returns next Tuesday, January 19, at 8/7c on The CW.
