After taking a week off, The Flash comes back this Tuesday with an all-new episode which kicks off a two-part event centered around the return of his furry nemesis Gorilla Grodd. In "Attack on Gorilla City," Team Flash will travel to Earth-2 to find Jesse's father, Harrison Wells. He was taken by Grodd in order to bait Team Flash into coming to Gorilla City and helping him overthrow its leader, Solovar.
It should be an awesome event! To make sure everyone tunes in, The CW has now released a new batch of photos from "Attack on Gorilla City," including the first two images of Solovar. As you can see in our gallery below, as well as in the banner image, Solovar — who is being voiced by Keith David (The Thing, Community) — is being depicted as a giant, white gorilla. That's a noticeable departure from his comic book counterpart, who looks like a regular gorilla but wears a fancy red cape.
Created by writer John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino, Solovar made his first appearance in The Flash #106 alongside Gorilla Grodd and Pied Piper. To learn about his comic book origin, click here.
When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov).
Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R. Labs.
Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
