Series showrunner Eric Wallace stated that Godspeed is one of the most important villains of the show. He explained in 2020’s DC FanDome that using a contemporary villain will allow the younger fans to be attached to the series and the story. The same way fans are familiar with Golden and Silver Age villains.
Wallace stated that he wanted to make sure that the fans and new young fans who are reading the comic book right now are welcome to see the show. Wallace added that it was not just the Silver Age and Bronze villains, but there might also be a young boy or young girl who is reading the Flash comics who may be looking for their ‘generation’s villain’.
The plot of the upcoming episode will be about the army of Godspeeds attacking Central City, Barry and Iris will put their family plans on hold while focusing on the latest to their home.
The Flash airs every Tuesday and the episode will air on June 29.
