It looks like the DC Universe minig is continuing with The Flash TV series taking more familiar faces and translating them onto our TV screens. And that’s just awesome.
Darkhorizons are reporting that executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg been talking about the other Flash, Wally West, appearing in the show which features Barry Allen as The Flash: “In the New 52 rebooted comic line, Wally West was changed from an older Caucasian male to a younger African-American man,” says the site.
Berlanti says that they’re following that idea: “We made [the] Wests African-American so that we could head in that direction.”
They go on to report that the “electricity-wielding metahuman” Farooq/Blackout will appear in the seventh episode “seeking vengeance against Barry’s mentor Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh).”
It’s interesting to note that Blackout was first introduced in the Flashpoint event which led to DC’s New 52 reboot. It looks like the Flashpoint story will be a big part of Barry’s story in the series…
The Flash will premiere on October 7th.
