tonytoddjittersTony Todd is known for many things – the Candyman movies being high on that list – but to us, he was Earl Jenkins, the ex-Luthorcorp employee with “Jitters” in one of the most popular and enduring episodes of Smallville Season 1.

Now he’s back in the DC Universe for The Flash Season 2 – as the voice of Zoom.

“Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Variety, where this news was broken. “Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.”

Zoom’s appearance will be something like Venom from Spider-Man comics. “The Zoom outfit is much more organic than the Reverse-Flash suit. In a way, it’s hard to tell if it is a suit or alive… There’s no skin showing, for all you know there’s a robot underneath, or dark energy,” he says.

Tony Todd has had other DCU roles before: He voiced Darkseid in Lego DC Super Heroes, Icon in Young Justice, and had a role on Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Listen for him in The Flash Season 2, premiering Oct. 6 on The CW.

Surprisingly, The CW didn’t release an official photo ahead of some outdoor filming for The Flash Episode 150… which means that photographers up in Vancouver were the ones to deliver our first look at Jordan Fisher in costume as Bart Allen a.k.a. Impulse.

As you can see, the costume is very true to the one from the comics, first introduced in a story drawn by artist Mike Wieringo and written by Mark Waid.

Stay tuned for when we’ll likely get an official one from the network and the studio within a few days… but if you just can’t wait… swing by Canadagraphs’ Patreon for your first peeks! Below, have a look at what Bart Allen’s costume looks like in the pages of DC Comics.
