While it’s been fun seeing Barry Allen square off with villainous speedsters over the past few years in The Flash, fans are beginning to grow bored of the Scarlet Speedster having to prove that he’s the Fastest Man Alive. There’s one villain in particular that many would like to see take center stage right about now, and that’s Gorilla Grodd. He played a small role in the first two seasons of The CW series, and it’s now been confirmed that he’ll be making an appearance during The Flash‘s third season when the show returns early next year.
The confirmation comes courtesy of David Sobolov, the actor who voices the psychic gorilla. He took to Twitter to announce his return, but refused to elaborate on what that will involve until “Warner Brothers unseals my lips.” That’s a frustrating tease, but bear in mind that we learned earlier this year that The Flash and company will pay a visit to Gorilla City.
For those of you unfamiliar with the comic books, that’s the place Grodd calls home and where he assembles his army of gorillas. On TV, it’s located on Earth-2, so chances are this visit means we’ll get to see more of Jesse Quick and that world’s version of Harrison Wells – which we’d certainly welcome.
The Flash season 3 returns on Tuesday, January 24th at 8/7c on The CW. Tell us, are you excited to hear that we’ll be getting more of Gorilla Grodd? Sound off down below and let us know!
