We know that Arrow and The Flash will be crossing over this year before their respective mid-season finales, but the worlds of Oliver Queen and Barry Allen will continue to clash as characters from each series jump between Starling City and Central City. TV Line reveals that Robert Knepper will reprise the role of William Tockman (better known to comic book fans as The Clock King) in episode 7 of The Flash, but he won't be alone! "We wanted to give Barry a real challenge… TWO bad guys!" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told the site, adding that Barry will be "fighting both a new enemy and one of our scariest and most successful Arrow villains in The Clock King." There's no word on who that villain will be as of right now. What do you guys think?

TheDudeRusty - 8/7/2014, 2:12 PM
I was hoping for this.
kinghulk - 8/7/2014, 2:13 PM
supes123- not in the show, he basically plans out heist that need to be completed by his time table.

Jollem - 8/7/2014, 2:14 PM

@kinghulk

for some reason when i read this article i count vertigo came into my head, i dont even no why i asked that, but do you think the real count will have his powers

@supes123

"so this clock king will have powers"

Why do you say that? The second villain in the episode can be the one with the powers. The Clock King can just mess with Barry's head as he did with Felicity.

I'd like to know how Clock King even reached Central City without Ollie knowing.

So CW went from casting Spartacus Alumni to Prison Break Alumni. Lol
kinghulk - 8/7/2014, 2:21 PM
i dont know why but i thought this was the guy that got blown up in the suicide squad episode. so if it wasent him that got blown up who did?
Destined - 8/7/2014, 2:22 PM
Ready ready ready!!
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:22 PM
@AlphaAndDecima

look at the comment above yours, i explained that i got confused that's why i said "this clock king", because count vertigo came into my head when reading this
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:23 PM
@kinghulk

that was shrapnel
SonGoku - 8/7/2014, 2:23 PM
@kinghulk

That was Shrapnel.
Arrowhead77 - 8/7/2014, 2:23 PM
Would love Deathstroke to show up on the Flash!
HavocPrime - 8/7/2014, 2:23 PM
@Kinghulk

That was Shrapnel, the bomb guy who was also Simon Tam in Firefly.

Kinda ironic as well that the bomb guy literally blew up...
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:24 PM
do you guys think deathstroke will break out of the prison this season of arrow
kinghulk - 8/7/2014, 2:25 PM
everyone- thanks lol that makes a lot more sense lol. cant wait for season 3 especially with them bringing ras al ghul, i hpe they bring solomon grundy back in.
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:27 PM
wonder who there gonna get to play ras
AlphaAndDecima - 8/7/2014, 2:27 PM
Holy hell…two people on here got confused on who the villain was. Doesn't the title say 'CLOCK KING'?

But, maybe the villains appearing on Arrow aren't as memorable as they should be.
Klone - 8/7/2014, 2:27 PM
As if this character wasn't filler enough in Arrow.

GL - 8/7/2014, 2:30 PM
Think Barry will have some sort of time altering powers or not yet?
kinghulk - 8/7/2014, 2:32 PM
alphaanddecima- to be fair neither shrapnel or the clock king where big villians, especially when compared to bronze tiger, china white, malcom merlyn, nyssa, slade, solomon grundy ...........
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:34 PM
was it rumored that oded fehr is playing ras
kinghulk - 8/7/2014, 2:34 PM
supes123- really that would be awesome if he is ras
McGee - 8/7/2014, 2:34 PM
Any minute now...some idiot who doesn't know anything about the comics, will make a criticism that they're using Batman villains--even though Clock King is traditionally a Green Arrow villain.
GliderMan - 8/7/2014, 2:37 PM
Ugh they're using too many Batman villains!!!!
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:37 PM
kinghulk

yeah it would be, i think there was an article before claiming he was rumored to play him and this was a few months ago before even release ras was going to be the big villain this season
Stubner - 8/7/2014, 2:41 PM
Proof?


Why would anyone need proof that Arrow and Flash are in the same universe?


It's hardly a secret.
ComicsBornAndBred - 8/7/2014, 2:43 PM
Oded Fehr for Ra's!! Or Arnold Vosloo!!!!
supes123 - 8/7/2014, 2:44 PM
arnold vosloo looks exactly like lex luthor
Klone - 8/7/2014, 2:45 PM
Clock King was scary? Lolwut?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/7/2014, 2:45 PM
GliderMan
The Clock King is a Green Arrow villain
SoundWave - 8/7/2014, 2:46 PM
He was one of the most awesome and great villains in "Arrow"!
Klone - 8/7/2014, 2:49 PM
English-Arab/North African (e.g. Sudanese, Egyptian, etc.) for Ra's Al Ghul. If they dare cast a white man in the role I will be pissed off.
Klone - 8/7/2014, 2:51 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939

He's being facetious, in reference to McGee's comment.
V8ER - 8/7/2014, 3:05 PM
Sweet! Loved his take on the character. Maybe Riddler could show up in Arrow. He's been a GA villain before.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/7/2014, 3:08 PM
Klone
Oh lol. Didn't notice McGee's comment
Wetboy40 - 8/7/2014, 3:13 PM
supes123- Oded Fehr voiced ras in young justice, But it would be AWESOME if he played him live action.
