The Danielle Panabaker directed episode airs April 16th
I wonder if the fact that Danielle was directing this was part of the reason she only appeared at the end of the last episode. I'm not sure what bearing it would've had on it though, because you'd think she'd be in this episode less rather than the last one. Why had she disappeared for most of the episode?
Does this actually refer to Godspeed the character? Is he going to be in this?
That's the speculation and/or hope, but the trailer for the episode doesn't seem to remotely imply that to be the case. However, apparently a white costume has been revealed via social media, so (maybe) there's a link there, one that involves Barry, Thawne, Nora and the guy behind the white mask.
All this time we've been thinking Thawne wanted to change the timeline which involved Cicada. Maybe he has been attempting to change it due to another unwanted Speedster?
She said she was away for prep on this episode. I'm excited for it. Good to have another speedster on the show again.
the writers aren't too bright if they plan on bringing in yet another speedster, its getting ridiculous and repetitive, we've had reverse flash, zoom, savitar, the rival, and they've shown others with/using superspeed on many occasions.
there's tons of other villains that don't have superspeed like the flash that they can bring in.
when the flash came back from the speedforce they portrayed him as being the fastest speedster ever, that means he's surpased zoom, reverse flash and savitar, so is godspeed suppose to come in and be faster than barry when barry is suppose to be the fastest speedster alive...allowing barry allen to keep that reign and name and bringing in non speedster villains is possible. I just hope if they bring in the godspeed character they don't portray him faster than barry, in the comics he wasn't faster than barry allen, using speed over and over again doesn't keep you interested in watching, at least cicada was different, plus they are not done with grace, godspeed the villain may be used as a cliffhanger ending for the season.
They need to bring on a character named The Snail or The Tortoise. He can be the slowest man in the world and the complete opposite of a speedster. That would change things up a bit and give Barry an enemy who is the very antithesis of him.
i agree they need to use other villains that don't have superspeed in terms of using the speedforce, if you go on wiki you can see the list of flash villains over the years, there's tons other than zoom, reverse flash, the rival, savitar, ect.
they already had a meta that had the ability to slow things down, it showed how it affected the flash's speed...so your idea has already been used, however no different than the many times the writers have used speed as an ability/power.
writers get with the program, think outside the box instead of using the same old storylines or villains with the same abilities, seriously a 14 year old child could come up with better villains, use wiki, read a flash comic book, there's tons of places to get material for villains, geeze.
Which episode was that? I don't remember this character. Can't have been all that memorable. And if it has only been used once and isn't that memorable, then there should be no problem using something like that again as a season-long villain since they've had so many speedsters.
I don’t think there actually are. Take a look at his rouges gallery; they’ve practically covered most, if not all of the Flash villains already, most of which have been wrapped in a single episode. It’s a shame they couldn’t stretch some of these out, or save them for reoccurring villains.
One speedster doesn’t need to be faster than another to be a credible threat. Barry is faster than Eobard, and yet he’s still a constant thawne (see what I did there) in Barry’s side because he’s calculated and devious.
There was a character nicknamed (by Cisco) as The Turtle. He had the ability to slow down time - so much so that Barry almost became motionless. He was ultimately captured by the team and then killed by E2 Wells for a reason I can’t quite remember now - something to do with helping Jessie.
As stated above, there’s not many characters the show hasn’t used in fairness. What we’re going to need now is original villains. Brand new creations that haven’t been referenced in the comics. It’s the only way to go forward, short of a continuity reset (crisis on infinite earths?) that brings back some of the currently defeated villains.
ya they've used quite abit of villains from the comics as metas, but if you go through the list there are many others they could bring in as a season villain, most of the villains fought barry based on speed (reverse flash, zoom, savitar), now that barry has surpassed them "being the fastest" isn't so much the goal as it was before for barry. He's grown as a hero and realizes not only being the fastest matters, but also your fight IQ or IQ on your abilities, I'm referring to a) barry is at this point considered the fastest speedster so he's essentially the fastest. b) barry has spent time bonding and inside the speedforce, therefore his connection I believe is stronger than other speedsters. c) barry is intelligent, and uses not only science/physics but also his experience so get through challenges/obstacles.
anyways, if they bring in godspeed as the villain speedster, I don't think I'm going to be tuned in as much or interested, to me just another speedster with a different name...at least the thinker, or cicada were completely different types of villains, geeze if you add godspeed you now have 5 villain speedsters (RF, zoom, savitar, the rival, godspeed potentially), 3 were season villains (RF, zoom, savitar)....so as you can see this is why godspeed to me is a boring plot line, they've simply used enough speedsters in the show.
Who is he meant to be? That looks like a discoloured Flash suit.
See title of episode
The suit looks CGI, and honestly, not very good CGI. I’m glad, I think, that they’re bringing this character in, I just hope he provides more depth than ‘the Rival’ and reoccurs.
Yeah, I was looking at the pics and I wasn't sure if it was meant to be CGI or a dude in costume. Really looks like CGI to me, which is weird.
Damn that’s goofy looking
Looks previz they do or use for slo mo shots of the speedsters running around
Lots of nods and callbacks to Barry's origin with Nora's origin. Kinda cool
Hmm. That van that Nora ran into said "Gambi & Sons."
Godspeed is freakin' awesome. I hope he's not a one off...
Choi Enterprises, too? Just chock full of Easter Eggs tonight, aren't we?
Godspeed completly wasted
My only complaint about this one.
We get a first glimpse of the Crisis and Godspeed reminds me of the White Ranger.
I want either a spin-off with Nora Allen, Mia Smoak, Connor Hawke, William, Zari, and Legion of Superheroes or have them be the new Legends of Tomorrow.
