Recently, WBTV released the official synopsis of premiere episodes of all the superhero shows. For The Flash Season 4, it goes like this:
“Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell”.
It doesn’t talk about the possible villain or whether Barry Allen will turn to the dark side from the comics when he started killing fellow speedsters with a mere touch after returning to the land of the living. But show-makers are promising a different kind of threat for Team Flash in the next season, something they haven’t experienced before, someone who is not exactly a speedster, hence unpredictable.
In order to fight this new threat, a new superhero will be on the scene to help Team Flash and he is none other than Elongated Man. He can change the shape of his body in creative ways. According to That Hashtag Show, the producers are looking for Ryan Reynolds/ Chris Pratt type guy to play Ralph Dibny/ Elongated Man for the TV show.
In DC comics, he wasn’t actually a meta-human. As a child, he was fascinated by chemistry, developed a concentrated version of a compound that helped him gain elasticity to fight crime. He first appeared in DC comics in an issue of The Flash back in 1960.
The show returns with a brand new season on CW in October 2017. Indian Viewers catch The Flash in action on Colors Infinity and Colors Infinity HD. CHEERS!
