A Trip to Lovely Gorilla City
During the Television Critics Associations' summer press tour, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed that Gorilla Grodd will return in the upcoming third season of the CW drama -- but that's only the beginning.
"We're going to be doing a two-part episode that takes place in Gorilla City," he revealed during the network's panel.
The last time viewers saw Grodd was in the seventh episode of Season 2, "Gorilla Warfare." Thanks to a bit of trickery by Dr. Wells and Team Flash, Grodd was sent through one of Central City's breaches to a primitive jungle city on Earth-2 adorned with statues of gorillas.
In the episode, Wells explained that the settlement was a refuge for other apes that had been the subjects of scientific experiments, signaling the first -- but now we know not the last -- appearance of Gorilla City.
Introduced in 1959 in DC Comics' "The Flash" #106 (the same issue in which Grodd debuted), the hidden city in the jungles of Africa is home to a race of super-intelligent gorillas that gained their abilities from a meteorite.
