When The Flash returns to season five this fall, it's not just a new villain and a new suit for Barry
During the show panel at the San Diego Comic-Con today, showrunner Todd Helbing stated that the fifth season of the show will be all about the concept of the legacy – including the idea of a younger version of the Rogues.
"We will make a younger version of The Rogues," said Helbing. He also explained that the season would not be without deaths and other challenges that make people think about what happens after they leave.
"There will be many deaths this season," he said. "I think everyone is thinking about what it means after he left."
For fans, the idea of getting a younger version of the Rogues is an exciting one when leaving Wentworth Miller, who officially ended his run as Leonard Snart / Captain Cold last season ̵
"First of all, I hope he comes back." Gustin revealed it. "Because I remember, when it was like that, they killed Wentworth a while ago when he was a legend, and then he was back and I worked with him a couple of times, so I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed for coming to work with him again. "
Gustin said working with Miller since the early days of The Flash was a surreal experience.
"That was a really cool thing in the series since the first season of The Flash." Gustin explained it. "He was a cool actor I had on set with and I could talk to, he was in Prison Break and all sorts of other things, he was just a good guy on set and talking to him."
Featuring The Actor, who bring to life one of DC Comics' beloved rivalries, knows fans want to see more of this momentum and think there may be more storytelling to tell.
"And even the fans love these two characters together Always talk about it when we act together .We are like," Man, I love those scenes. "They are unlike anything else we both share in our show There are all kinds of dynamics, they started as enemies, and they came to respect each other, and I think they came to take care of each other, but there are problems of trust, probably on both sides There's a lot going on, there's probably more to this relationship than any other Barry relationship. "
What about the newer, younger Rogues? That's a guess, but since Nora Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy) is coming from the future and may have brought trouble with her, these new villains could be enemies of her as the hero XS, just as they become challenges for The Flash itself. 19659004] The fifth season of The Flash will be released on Tuesday, October 9 at 8 / 7c at The CW.
