As expected, “The Flash” viewers haven’t seen the last of Hunter “Zoom” Zolomon. However, when the character returns, it may not only be on that CW drama — and he may not be portrayed by Teddy Sears.
Transformed by time wraiths into Black Flash and then pulled into the Speed Force in “The Flash’s” Season Two finale, the villain will indeed race back into the Arrowverse.
“I will say that you might be seeing him on multiple shows,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed today at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, California. He didn’t say which shows those are, or when fans can expect Black Flash’s return.
“[Black Flash] is a classic character. We have storylines on multiple shows that fit having him around,” he said. “There’s something so scary about him, something even scarier than when he was just the man, because now it’s now he is the Grim Reaper, he is the devil. How do you stop the devil? So it presents an interesting challenge for the heroes of the respective shows in which he appears.”
However, as Sears indicated last month, the actor’s commitment to Fox’s “24: Legacy” may prevent him from reprising his “Flash” role.
“It would be a lot of fun to drop back into that world,” he shared. “We’ll just have to see if the guys on the other end feel the same way,” he said. “It sounds like they do, but it’s funny – now I belong to Fox, so there’s lots of people that would have to give a thumbs up. But I really hope so.”
Starring Grant Gustin, “The Flash” returns Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
