THE FLASH Showrunner Teases Reverse-Flash's "Graphic Novel" Story Arc Following ARMAGEDDON Crossover
The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace has teased big plans for Reverse-Flash following the "Armageddon" event that kicked off on The CW last night, comparing the villain's story arc to a graphic novel...
Season 8 of The Flash kicked off last night with the "Armageddon" crossover event, which pitted the Fastest Man Alive and a number of returning heroes against the villainous Despero. However, for many fans, the most exciting thing about the show this year is Tom Cavanagh's Reverse-Flash.
During an interview with CBR, showrunner Eric Wallace dropped a few hints about what to expect from Eoboard Thawne's big comeback, confirming his return will be the season's next "graphic novel" story arc.
Revealing that this will be the same Reverse-Flash who learned that Barry Allen is now faster than him in the season 7 finale, Wallace explained: "[At] the end of last season, Reverse-Flash...he's a pretty pissed-off dude. Why? Because The Flash is faster now. If there's one question that 'Armageddon' answers, it's, 'Well, if you can't outrun your foe, what do you do to beat him?'"
"That's where Eobard Thawne will start in 'Armageddon.' That's really the question for him, and that question gets answered throughout all of Season 8, in weird and unexpected ways."
Adding that Rick Cosnett's Eddie Thawne won't in "Armageddon," Wallace noted that "We have three graphic novels this year in Season 8. Knock on wood if we can pull off this gargantuan feat, but they all spin out of 'Armageddon.'" It sounds like an exciting season for the Scarlet Speedster!
The Flash airs every Tuesday on The CW.
