In addition to the information about the Music Meister announced this weekend, The Flash showrunners have also revealed details about other upcoming characters. Episodes 13 and 14 will be about Grodd and Gorilla City, and Keith David will join the series to voice Solovar. TVLine has a few more details. “One of the episodes will take place in Gorilla City [on Earth-2],” Andrew Kreisberg added, “and one of them will take place on Earth-1.”
And Solovar isn’t the only character to be announced. We’ll see the return of the Black Flash, who was transformed into that form from Hunter Zolomon at the end of last season. Comics Alliance quotes Andrew Kreisberg as saying:
“He will [be] the classic comic book Grim Reaper aspect. It’s just going to be on multiple shows. He’s a classic character and we have storylines on multiple shows that fit having him return. There’s something so scary about him, even scarier than when he was just a man because now he is the Grim Reaper, he is like the Devil. How do you stop the Devil? It presents an interesting challenge for the heroes of the respective shows in which he appears.”
Apparently the Black Flash isn’t expected to be played by Teddy Sears again, as the actor is busy in another series. And you’ll notice from the quote that the character may be appearing on several shows, which is interesting. Might he become a generalized Grim Reaper for everyone in the CWverse, and not just for speedsters?
