The Flash finally returned last night as the show did its own adaptation of the Flashpoint comic storyline. Last season though, Barry had to deal with the villainous Hunter Zolomon a.k.a. Zoom (played by Teddy Sears) whose goal was to become the fastest speedster in the Multiverse until he decided to try and destroy all Earths in it.
Sears recently appeared on Comicbook.com’s Flashback after show where he chatted about portraying the monstrous villain. During the interview, Sears was asked about working in the Zoom costume while praising the work that goes into the DC TV costumes across the shows and more.
“It wasn’t hot! The really put the money into the suit to get it right, which meant really, I think, good materials – specifically really sort of high quality leather. I you look closely at the suit in pictures, you know, it’s perforated in places: on the shoulders, specifically, in the torso – so basically, it breathed. And it was fine, it was really comfortable, it was really cool!”
The last we saw of Zoom in Season 2 was as he was being transformed into what looked like Black Flash by the time wraiths.
The Flash Season 3 airs on Tuesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
