The Flash: New Season 2 Villain Seen On Set – UPDATE: The Masked Villain Is Former WWE Wrestler Edge


UPDATE 7/16/2015 6:00AM PST: Instagram user punkd_images has a photo of the villain unmasked, and it’s former WWE wrestler Adam Copeland / Edge.

By way of, we have set images — from YVR Shoots and Vancity Buzz — of a new villain in The CW’s The Flash Season 2.  Oh, and by the way, it’s also pretty cool that the scene is depicting Central City celebrating Flash Day.

I’m not as up-to-date on my Flash lore as well as Nick Tywalk is.  So any guesses as to who the metal-masked adversary of our Scarlet Speedster is?

This has been a week of announcements for The Flash due to Comic-Con 2015 where the show was part of DC’s three-hour panel for its television shows.  Huge Season 2 castings include Teddy Sears playing the role of comic book Golden Age era Jay Garrick / The Flash, and Shantel VanSanten playing the role of Joe West’s new partner, Patty Spivot.

Characters being added to Season 2 are Professor Zoom (who in the comics is the Reverse-Flash, but it seems that they might be splitting the character for the series) and Wally West, who may or may not already have powers.  And if Wally West does already have powers, we don’t know if he’ll be The Flash or Kid Flash.  Castings for Professor Zoom and Wally West are still unknown, but Tom Cavanaugh’s voice was heard in The Flash‘s highlight reel for Comic-Con.  So he may reprise his role as the same character with a name change.

The Flash Season 2 will premiere on The CW on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 8:00PM EST.
