Showrunner Teases Clash with “Real” Archvillain in The Flash Season 7

After teasing it for a long time, Barry Allen will meet his match in the next season of The Flash. While speaking with TV LineThe Flash showrunner Eric Wallace confirmed that the upcoming season of the show would indeed pit the titular hero against his antithesis, Godspeed. Though they already seemingly locked horns on several occasions in the sixth season of the show, the versions facing the titular hero were mere clones of the real villain. Fans will have to wait for the new year, though, as The Flash will launch its new season in January 2021.

In the comics, Godspeed is the alter-ego of August Heart, one of Barry Allen’s best friends who gains speed-based superpowers. Unlike The Flash, Godspeed chooses to kill criminals.

In the meantime, The CW has also released the official synopsis of The Flash Season 7. It mentions a new and powerful threat, presumably Godspeed. Barry Allen will have to deal with Mirror Master’s attempts to take over Central City as well.

“After a thrilling cliffhanger which saw the new Mirror Master victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris. With help from the rest of Team Flash — which includes Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon, Ralph Dibny and Nash Wells, as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West, meta-attorney Cecile Horton, tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk — Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team — and his marriage — apart.”
