Yesterday the casts from the CW / DC shows appeared for the annual Pally Center event. Kevin Smith hosted as Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Melissa Benoist, Caity Lotz, Bradon Routh and more appeared in a live Q&A. The majority of the questions were stay away from spoilers or any big break news, but there was one thing that may please Flash fans. According to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, there will NOT be a speedster villain in season 4. Barry Allen has already had to deal with Reverse-Flash, Zoom and now Savitar… so having a non-speedster big bad would be a real change of pace. My hope, as I’ve stated in the past, would be to focus more heavily on the Rogues and bring back Captain Cold and Heatwave.
But… the conspiracy theorist in me keeps looking at the below statement and thinks, “won’t be A speedster,” doesn’t mean it couldn’t be multiple speedsters.
Kreisberg says they had to find a scarier villain than Zoom – so now there’s Savitar. Next year, there won’t be a speedster. #PaleyFest
