Jay Garrick Flash John Wesley ShippThe new TV Guide Magazine Comic-Con issue – which actually features Grant Gustin on the cover as The Flash – has a lot of Flash goodness within, and one of those highlights is the reveal that the initial plan for the season finale was to again have John Wesley Shipp (Jay Garrick) wearing his old costume from the original Flash TV show that aired on CBS.

“It was going to be more of an Easter egg,” Andrew Kreisberg told the magazine. “Then we decided on [a suit] somewhere in between.”

Looking at the “new” costume worn by Shipp, it is obvious that, while maintaining the look of Jay Garrick from the comics, many elements were also reminiscent of the 1990 Flash show.

John Wesley Shipp Returns As Earth-2 Flash on Stargirl

John Wesley Shipp will be playing The Earth-2 Flash in Stargirl Season 2.

Flashes

While his Flash of Earth-90 has sped off into the afterlife, John Wesley Shipp still has another old role to return to… with a more familiar background!

Jay Garrick will be firmly established as the Flash of Earth-2 – just like the classic comics – and John Wesley Shipp himself will be playing the role in the ninth episode of Season 2 of DC’s Stargirl. Shipp – who starred in the 1990 Flash TV series and later played Henry Allen and Jay Garrick (living on Earth-3) on The Flash – will be reprising his role. EW broke the news today.

This casting, of course, reinforces Stargirl’s role in the Arrowverse — yes, we are still calling it that, no matter what The CW wants us to say. The members of Stargirl’s new generation of the Justice Society was, of course, seen at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths as being the heroes of the new Earth-2.

No premiere date for Stargirl Season 2 has been announced yet, so it may be some time before Jay Garrick speeds in.
