Gorilla City, Earth 2, Grodd. Are you ready for a battle Royale of the year? Grodd is back and ready to fight!
Team Flash has dealt with it’s fair share of meta humans, but a super powered gorilla was never the plan.
Barry and his no so excellent decision making skills, went ahead and tricked Grodd into living on Earth 2. There, he could be free in Gorilla City.
All was going well until the leader came out to play. Grodd wants to take down his nemesis, Solovar and will do whatever it takes to do so. Which includes manipulating the team that sent him there in the first place.
‘Attack on Gorilla City’ is a two part epic adventure in the Flash universe. Due to the magnitude, The CW released the promo poster for the event, titled ‘Rumble in the Jungle.’
According to my source, “it’s a reference to the name of the legendary 1974 heavyweight bout between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman. In it, Ali implemented his famous rope-a-dope strategy to knockout Foreman in the eighth round, pulling off the historic upset and regaining his title.”
When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov).
Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City. As Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R. Labs.
‘The Flash’ airs Tuesday Nights at 8/7c on The CW.
