Flash TV Panel At SDCC

The Flash panel just wrapped up at SDCC, and there were a few new juicy details. It’s been confirmed that the Thinker is the major villain of Season Four, and he’ll be played by The 100 actor Neil Sandilands. His sidekick/assistant, known as the Mechanic, will be played by Kim Engelbrecht. Probably the most surprising cast news, however, is that famed movie actor Danny Trejo will be playing Cynthia (Gypsy)’s dad Breacher. It’s not known how much of a role he’ll have, but he’s a pretty big name for the show.

A few details here and there about the coming season:

*There will be more crossovers.
*The show isn’t doing time travel in Season Four, partly because of how complicated Savitar was.
*There are so many different versions of Harrison Wells we could potentially see. Possibly even a version of Wells who is Johnny Quick.
*The tone of the show will be lighter this season (although I believe they said that last year).
*Grant Gustin does indeed appear this season.
*Iris is leading Team Flash during Barry’s absence.
*Joe and Cecile’s relationship will get more serious.
*There’ll be more of Cisco and Cynthia.
*There was seemingly no mention of Julian Albert nor actor Tom Felton.

And here’s the sizzle reel for the fourth season, which showcases Iris’ important role.

    These details leave me full of hope.
    I’m so glad they are backing away from time travel in season 4. It really dragged down season 3.
    And Iris leading the team? YES!

      Yeah, I don’t mind time travel in principle, but they always break their own rules and make things horribly complicated and confusing. Legends does this too, but at least Legends is very much a ‘turn off your brain and enjoy the madness’ kind of show, so it tends to be less aggravating. I think the concept is confusing even to the showrunners, so they end up with a bit of a mess when they bring time travel into any of the series.

    I saw The Flash season 4 trailer and can’t wait until October. They didn’t show any clues about Barry status in speed force. But, the trailer showed lots of action and fun coming up. I was hoping to see Kid Flash in Barry’s costume. At least Iris gets to chill in that nice apartment Barry left here.
