The Flash has cast its Godspeed… well, his voice

April 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

The Flash has major problems coming his way soon as The CW reveals first look at Godspeed.

Godspeed in the comics is a force to be reckoned with:

Godspeed is a colleague and old friend of Barry Allen (a.k.a. the Flash) who took on the serial killer persona Godspeed after obtaining Speed Force Powers after being struck by lightning. He began fatally draining the ability of other speedsters in order to make himself stronger, and using this speed to make himself judge, jury and executioner of other criminals in Central City, aiming to avenge his brother’s murder by any means necessary.

And now we have our first look (he looks awesome!) and not only that, but he’ll be voiced by Gotham and Jurassic PArk star BD Wong.

Wong has just stepped out as playing Hugo Strange in Gotham and now he steps right back in as the voice of Godspeed.

That’s pretty damned cool.

The character will be revealed by Nora in The Flash who is investigating medical lab robberies. in an episode called, imaginatively, God Speed, whihc will be directed by star Danielle Panabaker.

After discovering that Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) is working with Thawne (Tom Cavanagh), Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) disagree about how to handle their daughter in the wake of this shocking news. Team Flash isn’t sure they can trust Nora, so they go through her journal to find out exactly how she came to work alongside their greatest nemesis.

We can’t wait to see him on screen!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
