It looks like we haven’t seen the last of Hunter Zolomon. In the season two finale of The Flash, he was transformed into Black Flash by time wraiths and he was pulled into the Speed Force. But, he will come back and possibly on more shows than just The Flash.
“I will say that you might be seeing him on multiple shows,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour. He did not reveal which shows he’ll be on or when Black Flash will 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.
When the character returns, however, Zoom may not be played by Teddy Sears. He is already committed to 24: Legacy on FOX, so he may not make it back to play Black Flash.
“It would be a lot of fun to drop back into that world. We’ll just have to see if the guys on the other end feel the same way,” Sears 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.”
The Flash returns on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.
