‘The Flash’ Actor Grant Gustin Discusses Season 2’s Major Villain, And His Involvement With ‘Legend’s Of Tomorrow’

The Flash, not unlike its emerald archer compatriot, has shared a lot about their season 2 characters and plot. However, unlike Arrow, the Flash has been mum on its next major villain. For those who hate spoilers, and our still finishing season 1 of the flash, please look away for a while. For the rest of the Flash fans, let us move on and dig deeper.

Reverse-Flash is no more, well, at least for the foreseeable future. So, naturally, the Flash will need a new big baddie to tackle for season 2. Sure, Killer Frost aka Caitlin Snow’s future alter ego is supposed to be a villain, but Reverse-Flash’s departure left massive shoes to fill in the villain department. According to Comicbook, the Flash star Grant Gustin gives a little tid bit of information in this department.

“We’re introducing a really cool big bad that’s going to be revealed kind of immediately.”

So, the Flash is already aware of his season 2 nemesis, which is good. The fans have only gotten a flashlight turned on and off on the subject, but this does mean it will not be long before the flash fans find out just who they are. In the Flash season 1, fans were really left hanging for most of the season before the reveal came. Many knew that something was not right with Dr. Harrison Wells, and each week a new evil metahuman came to town, but the Reverse-Flash reveal came later in season 1.

Guston also shed the same amount of light on the Flash’s involvement in the new CW / DC Comic show Legend’s Of Tomorrow in an interview with Collider, at the Saturn Awards. 

“I’m going to be a part of that right out of the gates as well. I get to be Flash on three TV shows. I was unemployed a year and a half ago, so that’s pretty cool.”

A lot of big things coming for the Flash in the fall, as the CW released its fall schedule, and surprise, surprise, the Flash will be at the same time. It returns Tuesday, October 6.
