The Flash has confirmed that Zoom as the main villain for The Flash’s second season.
The news broke during San Diego Comic Con International's WB TV panel in Hall H. Speaking before a packed crowd, show runner and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed that another yellow-grabbed villain is coming to hunt Barry Allen. But this Zoom isn’t person as The Reverse Flash/Eobard Thawne, who is also known as Professor Zoom in the comics.
“He's faster than the Reverse-Flash, faster than Flash and will be very hard to catch,” Kreisberg revealed. “He's going to be terrifying and scary and fast, and it's going to be all kinds of cool.”
It’s possible that Zoom will be Hunter Zolomon, the second man to bear the Reverse Flash Mantel. DC Comics writer Geoff Johns introduced the character during his run on The Flash as Wally West’s iteration of the Professor Zoom rival. However, with the multiverse expected to be a thriving component of The Flash’s second season, it’s also possible that Zoom will be a another world’s version of The Eobard Thawne/Harrison Wells character.
