Last night's Hall H presentation of The Flash (including writers/producers Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti and Geoff Johns and stars Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanagh, Candice Patton, John Wesley Shipp and sadly no Jesse L. Martin, who couldn't make it) brought TONS of news with it, including the crazy exciting scoop that both Jay Garrick and Wally West will be headed to the second season as Earth-2 is introduced. Garrick will be played by Masters of Sex's Teddy Sears.
The team also confirmed that Zoom will be "the big bad" of Season Two, and Kreisberg said "he's going to be faster than Reverse-Flash, faster than The Flash, and he's going to be very hard to catch."
We'll also meet a new potential love interest for Barry in Patty Spivot, played by The Messengers' Shantel VanSanten.
Other news from the panel:
Of other S2 villains, Kreisberg said, "We'll be adding to the Rogues Gallery," plus we'll get more Grodd and more of the Snart siblings.
Panabaker stopped short of confirming that we'll get Killer Frost this season, but spoke a lot about loving the look and said, "I look forward to seeing more of her." For what it's worth, my impression (or theory, at least) is that through the vagaries of time, we'll manage to get both Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost. This is my hope!
Of The Vibe, Valdes said Carlos will be experiencing "changes in his body...not puberty," so The Vibe seems like more of a certainty for Season Two.
Patton said Iris will be spending a lot of time in STAR Labs in the second season, "officially part of Team Flash." Yay!
