First Look at The Flash's Tom Cavanagh as Reverse-Flash
Earlier this season, we found out that Tom Cavanagh's character was, in fact, the DC Comics supervillain Reverse Flash, but his character was only glimpsed as a fast-moving blur. Now, at long last, the CW has released the first real look at Harrison Wells in the Reverse-Flash suit:
Wells was a scientist at S.T.A.R. labs and Barry's mentor, until Barry discovered that Wells not only had superpowers, but may have killed his mother. Since then, he has emerged as the main antagonist of this season, with a time traveling confrontation between him and Barry coming up in the next episode, called "Out of Time."
Cavanagh spoke to THR about the role of time travel in the relationship between Wells and Barry: "In comic books, when you start talking about time travel - if anybody has followed The Flash, then they know Reverse-Flash and The Flash are not just doing this right now in the present day. They have a long history and there's nothing that we're not going to pursue when we try to tell the story. We're trying to tell all of it."
The Flash returns with all-new episodes on March 17.
