Comic-Con 2018: DC's The Flash Season 5 Trailer Reveals New Villain
Cicada enters the Arrow-verse.
While it's still not clear exactly when we'll see the big screen Flash movie, the TV version of super-fast Barry Allen is as popular as ever. Season 5 of The CW's DC show The Flash premieres in October and the first trailer was revealed at San Diego-Comic-Con.
Season 4 ended with the surprise appearance of Nora, a girl claiming to be the daughter of Barry and Iris, who has arrived from the future. The trailer shows that the new season picks up immediately afterwards, with Barry attempting to find out why Iris--codename XS--is here, and uncovering some dark secrets along the way. Check it out above.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry, with Candice Patton as Iris and Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora. It was revealed at The Flash's SDCC panel that the villain will be Cicada, the metahuman-hating villain who first appeared in DC comics in 2001. He'll be played by American Pie's Chris Kline.
At the SDCC panel, Gustin spoke about the changes in store for the characters in Season 5. "I think we're kind of all on different pages," he said, via CBR. "Barry, Iris, and Nora are all in very different headspaces. Nora is pretty clingy to Barry. We don't know why. She's kind of attached to him when she arrives and a little more distant with Iris."
In related news, it was reported last week that The CW has greenlit the pilot of a Batwoman show. The Vampire Diaries showrunner Caroline Dries is set to write and executively produce. The character will debut during the network's annual crossover event in December, which will incorporate all the shows in the so-called Arrow-verse--The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Arrow.
