New Hero Coming To The Flash Season 2



A report is stating a new hero is coming to The Flash Season 2.

TV Line has it The Flash is casting a "season-long role of a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man 'with an edge.' "

It's noted the casting call lists the character as "John Clark," which they state is a nod to the DC Comics letterer of the same name and suggest the hero may be a character the letterer has worked on.

One character already hinted at in The Flash that DC Comics letterer John Clark has worked on is Jay Garrick (The Flash season finale featured Jay Garrick's helmet).

Other potential characters may include Hawkman (especially considering Hawkgirl is a part of the spinoff DC Legends Of Tomorrow); Doctor Fate, Hourman (series has been said to be in development at the CW), and maybe Green Lantern.

TV Line also reported Barry will get a new love interest in Season 2 described as: 

...a major recurring role of Wendy, a “spunky, fun and funny” romantic interest

• A cop for the Central City PD, Wendy is described as bright and scientific-minded — more specifically, “Think ‘Felicity Smoak’ from Arrow,”
