At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con fans will have an opportunity to ask the cast of The CW’s THE FLASH questions about the upcoming new season which will expand upon the Flash Family legacy.
In just a week, thousands of fans will descend upon San Diego for the biggest fan convention in the world! San Diego Comic-Con has evolved into the most coveted event of the season, a celebration of all-things in “Geek-dom” that have inspired the popular rise of the comic book, science-fiction and fantasy genre. This year DC will be holding court unveiling its brand new subscription service DC Universe though fans will be gathering to hear about what will be coming up in the fall for their favorite returning CW series including The Flash.
The series starring Grant Gustin and Candice Patton ended its Season 4 with the shocking revelation that the Flash Family have a new addition to the family in the form of a daughter, Nora Allen-West (played by new series regular Jessica Parker Kennedy). After preventing The Thinker from enacting his master plan, the “mystery girl” that had been hiding in plain sight all year long, revealed her identity in the cliffhanger, opening the door to five-months of speculation as to what exactly she may have meant by “made a big mistake”.
Besides time-travel which we know has never proven a good idea in “Flash World” the next season is shaping up to be the first in the long-running adventure series’ run to really dive deep into much of the speedster’s legacy. The announcement that Keiynan Lonsdale will not be returning to either The Flash or DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as a regular character in his coveted role as Wally West/Kid Flash has left may fans wondering about the fate of that significant character given Season’s five potential storyline.
Audiences attending The Flash panel at SDCC on Saturday, June 21 will be treated to the first, full gathering of Season Five’s growing cast which has extended to recruit Harley Sawyer who will be joining the team once again as Ralph Dibny/The Elongation Man and rumors have begun to circulate that next year, Iris (Candice Patton) will be introducing Ralph to a colleague, a young woman named “Sue”. Of course igniting great anticipation for another of the DC Comic’s universe greatest love stories between Ralph and Sue.
