Is The Accelerated Man Coming To The Flash?

Posted by December 4, 2016 Comment

It’s our policy here at Bleeding Cool to not show unofficial set photos taking during filming. So I won’t be showing the photos that are going around the web from an upcoming episode of the Flash. But I will talk about Earth-19. This is the Earth where Gotham by Gaslight and Wonder Woman Amazonia exists, a steampunk version of the DC Universe. At least that’s what it is in the comics.

In the television series The Flash, the current Harrison Wells… H.R., comes from Earth-19. Now we can’t assume that its the same Earth… but we got another clue that it might be. And it’s the guy standing in the back of the image above, Accelerated Man.

In the TV series, H.R. talks about how he helped his Flash to defeat certain villains. So we know that there is a speedster on his Earth. But the set photos that we are not showing shows someone dressed almost EXACTLY like Accelerated Man. Now H.R. doesn’t necessarily have a steampunk look about him, but at the same time maybe he does. Take a look at that hat…

If it turns out that the Earth H.R. is from is indeed the steampunk Earth-19 and we get the Accelerated Man… then that’s a whole new world to play with in the series that would be drastically different visually and could be a lot of fun to explore and find the versions of our heroes over there.
