SDCC '14: Two Major DC Comics Villains Confirmed To Appear In Season One Of THE FLASH

Both of these very well-known members of Barry Allen's rogues gallery were teased in the pilot episode, and it was confirmed at a panel for The CW series at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con that we'll see them both in the first season! Who are they? Read on for details...

Superhero Hype reports that The Flash producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg dropped some major announcements in regards to a few villains who will be making an appearance during season one at this past Saturday's Comic-Con panel for the series. First of all, they confirmed that Weather Wizard (who plays a major role in the pilot) will return at some point, especially as Captain Cold - the next member of The Rogues to be introduced - is on the way and looking to form that classic team of baddies. Far more exciting though is the news that Gorilla Grodd will also make an appearance this year. In the leaked pilot [SPOILER ALERT] we saw an empty cage in STAR Labs that he had escaped from, and seeing them bring the villain to life should be very interesting. That's not all though as they also revealed that Reverse-Flash will be making a physical appearance too!

I haven't watch a live action DC show since Smallville.
MFDOOM - 7/28/2014, 6:41 PM
Well anyone who saw the Flash pilot could have said this news isn't out of left field, but I guess it's nice that they've been officially confirmed to make ongoing appearances.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/28/2014, 6:41 PM
Knew they'd be going somewhere with Grodd. They spent too long focusing on that cage with the camera.

WWHHHHAAAAAAAAAA?????????







Grodd. Awesome. How the hell will they pull that off?
staypuffed - 7/28/2014, 6:42 PM
I love that Andy Kubert pic.
dckizzle - 7/28/2014, 6:42 PM
Captain cold will be the best
ALegendaryPanda - 7/28/2014, 6:43 PM
YES!! I hope they can pull off the effects!
0megaDaGod - 7/28/2014, 6:43 PM
This show looks good, but a Flash movie would be breathtaking. Especially if Brad Bird were involved

ALegendaryPanda - 7/28/2014, 6:43 PM
*for Grodd
TheAbaryMan369 - 7/28/2014, 6:43 PM
If they do Grodd their budget will be insane! They should see if they could get Andy Serkis for it.
Sipprelle - 7/28/2014, 6:44 PM
Great stuff!
Ragnaroknroll - 7/28/2014, 6:44 PM
Cool! I'm not a huge DC fan but I do like the Flash. Grodd is a great villain. Looking forward to this.
DrunkenNukem - 7/28/2014, 6:44 PM
If you watch the pilot, this is not a surprise...

Bobevanz - 7/28/2014, 6:45 PM
[frick] yeah! 2 more months, I wish I didn't watch the pilot already, I'm craving more!!!!!!
Darlene1974 - 7/28/2014, 6:45 PM
Very Exciting news!!!...
At least this comicbook show has comicbook superheroes!
SuperCat - 7/28/2014, 6:46 PM
Grodd is comin'!!

TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 7/28/2014, 6:47 PM
This, Arrow and Constantine FTW! [frick] Gotham.
Nomis - 7/28/2014, 6:47 PM
NICE! REALLY NICE!

This show is taking off in a fla.... :)
TheBrownHornet - 7/28/2014, 6:47 PM
Love the flash, that Grodd thing is interesting.
xStarLordx - 7/28/2014, 6:47 PM
I was confused as to how this was news then I realized not everyone saw the flash leak.
Dios - 7/28/2014, 6:48 PM
Hahaha that Antonio Banderas gif never gets d!
Dios - 7/28/2014, 6:48 PM

dracula - 7/28/2014, 6:50 PM
wonder how there going to explain that, there is no way they are going to use gorilla city
SniktBub - 7/28/2014, 6:50 PM
The Weather Wizard we saw in the pilot is not coming back. His brother is the 2nd and most used Weather Wizard in the comics. Great to hear about Cold and Grodd. And I think Reverse-Flash has already made an appearance in the pilot
Darkjedi41 - 7/28/2014, 6:50 PM
I have a feeling this may be a letdown. String of heists with the perps having no memory of anything and a new zoo gorilla being mentioned in the background 2-3x during the episode with a trip there. I trust these guys but Grodd on TV budget???
AlphaAndDecima - 7/28/2014, 6:51 PM
Will The Flash blow their budget with Grodd though? That sounds more of a feat than Firestorm for a show on The CW.
DCGuy - 7/28/2014, 6:53 PM
GREAT! this is why DC won Comic con LOL JK! can't wait for Flash, Arrow, Constantine & Gotham! I think the Suicide Squad & the team ups with Arrow & Flash are the most anticipated things in TV for fans everywhere.
dannybosa - 7/28/2014, 6:54 PM
I didn't get a chance to watch the leaked pilot. Is that good or bad?
JoJo1982 - 7/28/2014, 6:59 PM
Can't wait to see Grodd make a appearance!!!
Lizardking310 - 7/28/2014, 6:59 PM
Grodd !!!! Yes I'm looking forward to this show now
RobertLiefeld - 7/28/2014, 7:01 PM
Sweet stuff.
rabid - 7/28/2014, 7:01 PM
Let's hope they don't blow the whole season's budget on Grodd... but let's also hope they don't just put a man in a gorilla suit.
DrDoom - 7/28/2014, 7:01 PM
'Major' DC villains.

A monkey and a yellow hero clone.

MAKE MINE MARVEL

loljk, but seriously, I'm the best villain in all of comics.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 7/28/2014, 7:02 PM
I think it'd be cool if they saved their money and used practical effects and standard "Dude in monkey costume" rather than CGI.
dannybosa - 7/28/2014, 7:06 PM
Doomsday didn't require CGI so why should Grodd.
Arrowhead77 - 7/28/2014, 7:07 PM
Looking forward to it!
