Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ To Address Godspeed Mystery

But will Godspeed's story follow 'The Flash' comics?

Grant Gustin The Flash Godspeed

The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace has revealed that the seventh season of the Grant Gustin series will deal with the mystery of Godspeed’s identity.

The CW’s The Flash season seven will finally explore who Godspeed really is according to showrunner Eric Wallace. Fans will know that the white-suited villain has been plaguing the team for some time, although the versions we’ve seen of him have all been clones. Wallace previously said that Barry Allen will fight the real Godspeed in the next season, but it’s not yet clear whether the story will take its cues from the character’s comic book origins as a detective with the Central City Police Department.

Eric Wallace recently appeared on a panel during the DC FanDome event, discussing the next season of the Grant Gustin series when he opened up about the Godspeed mystery. Wallace explained that although he didn’t want to spoil the upcoming season, Team Flash will deal with the real guy or girl who’s really hiding behind the mask. Hopefully, The Flash will find a way of honoring the villain’s origins and weaving Detective August Hart into the story. Take a look at the showrunner discussing the sinister speedster below.

“I don’t like spoilers… let’s just say there was a certain speedster who wore a white costume, whose clones kept showing up. Really, Team Flash has to deal with that, but we never caught the real guy or girl. Let’s just say we might find out that mystery this season.”

What do you make of the season seven tease? Will the Godspeed storyline follow the comics? What else do you want to see in the next season of the Grant Gustin series? Let us know in the comments section!

Grant Gustin’s The Flash is set to return next year on The CW. Here is the official synopsis for The Flash season seven:

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.

The Flash will return on The CW in 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming season of The Flash and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
