A couple of interesting tidbits regarding Season 2 of the Flash “flashed” across our monitors in the overnight.  First up?   Variety reporting that Tony Todd, best known for his role as Candyman, has signed on to voice the role of Zoom for Season 2.  Which, of course, begs the question:  who exactly is Zoom?  Well, show producer Andrew Kreisberg certainly isn’t giving up anything:

“Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.”


Then there was this tweet let go by the CW:


All in all…it should be a very exciting season for the Flash.

Season 2 picks up on the CW Tuesday, October 6th.
