Well, it seems Reverse-Flash is the villain in The Flash Season 2 after all. Only, he’ll be very different, indeed.

Reverser-Flash will this year be called Zoom and will have a physical makeover… and will sound very different, indeed: “Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has said.

“This year we wanted to do something a little bit different. Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.”

Todd, made famous by his role as Candyman, has a the voice you hear in your nightmares. But there’s more to the change too: “The Zoom outfit is much more organic than the Reverse-Flash suit,” Kreisberg said.

“In a way, it’s hard to tell if it is a suit or alive… There’s no skin showing, for all you know there’s a robot underneath, or dark energy.”

Well, we’re excited as heck. But you knew that already.

The Flash will return on October 6th

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….
