A super-smart, telepathic gorilla isn’t necessarily a natural choice for network TV, but “The Flash” has teased the arrival of DC Comics supervillain Gorilla Grodd since its pilot, with increasingly revealing glimpses of the character in subsequent episodes.

“The Flash” airs 8 p.m. Tuesdays on The CW.
