The Flash Prepares To Enter Gorilla City In Dynamic New Poster


After taking a break in observance of Valentine’s Day, The Flash looks to come back strong next week as it continues to embrace its comic book heritage with the two-part “Gorilla City” event.

So far, the series has delighted viewers with incredible interpretations of villains such as the Reverse Flash, Zoom and Captain Cold, but when more fantastical baddies like Gorilla Grodd or King Shark are brought to life via CGI, many a fanboy have had reason to cheer. Personally, I think that some things that originate on the page don’t work as well in live-action, but the execution has been pretty good to this point, so I can’t really complain much.

With less than a week to go until “Gorilla City” officially commences, the network has released a cool new poster, something they’re no stranger to doing when promoting the more significant episodes of each DC series to be aired. This one in particular is especially crisp and sees Barry Allen stand on a precipice of sorts. Hey, if you were about to enter a city full of intelligent gorillas on an Earth that’s not your own, wouldn’t you be a little nervous, too?

I also can’t help but wonder if two-episode arcs taking place on Earth-2 will be the norm this time of year. Season 2 got the ball rolling and only time will tell if this will become a time honored tradition. If Jesse Quick is to become a permanent fixture of the show, it’s highly possible.

For more details concerning “Attack on Gorilla City,” be sure to check out the the official synopsis below:

BARRY AND TEAM TRAVEL TO GORILLA CITY AND FACE GRODD – When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov). Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1.

Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R. Labs. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob (#313). Original airdate 2/21/2017.

The Flash airs on Tuesday nights on The CW.
