The Flash Season 2: New Poster Plus Tony Todd Cast As Zoom

A new poster for The Flash season two that teases the addition of Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick has been revealed just as new that another Speedster has found his voice in the form of Tony (Candyman) Todd.


We first saw the helmet briefly at the end of season one when it unexpectedly popped out of a time portal (we half-expected a fez to follow) but in season two we get to meet Jay Garrick – played by Teddy Sears (Masters Of Sex, Raising The Bar) – in the flesh when he becomes an important part of the line-up and a mentor for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), the current Flash.

Meanwhile Tony Todd will be loaning his rolling thunder of a voice to a massively revamped Reverse-Flash. According to Variety the character, now known as Zoom, will not only receive a physical makeover, but will be have a booming new voice too.

“Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice,” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, “and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different. Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.

“The Zoom outfit is much more organic than the Reverse-Flash suit,” continues Kreisberg, revealing that we’ll see the character makes his re-introduction in the second episode of the new season, “Flash Of Two Worlds”. “In a way, it’s hard to tell if it is a suit or alive… There’s no skin showing, for all you know there’s a robot underneath, or dark energy.”
