Two characters will make there presences felt.
TVLine confirmed The Flash is heading back to Gorilla City.
An upcoming Grodd story, stretching over Episodes 13 and 14, will feature Keith David as the voice of Solovar, the progressive leader of Gorilla City in the DC Comics canon, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg announced Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“One of the episodes will take place in Gorilla City [on Earth-2],” Kreisberg added, “and one of them will take place on Earth-1.”
In the comics lore, Solovar is known for his wisdom and psychic powers and is virtually unchallenged, except by Grodd (voiced on the CW series by David Sobolov).
In other news, TVLine reported that Season 2 villain Zoom will resurface as the Black Flash on multiple CW hero shows.
In DC Comics lore, Black Flash is the “Grim Reaper” of sorts for speedsters, taking them back to the source of their powers, the Speed Force. At the time that TV’s The Flash vanquished Zoom in last May’s finale, the sinister speedster was seen transforming into Black Flash.
“He’s a classic character, and we have storylines on multiple shows that fit having him return,” Kreisberg told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Sunday. “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.”
