Who Are Those New Characters At The End Of The Flash Finale?

FlashTVNews can tell you who played the new characters who were introduced at the end of the Flash finale.

Published

The Flash has ended on the East Coast, and now you might be wondering who those characters might be as part of the “New World” Barry is talking about. He’s shared the lightning beyond his family, and now new speedsters will be out there in the world.

One of those new folks we met before: Avery Ho. In the comics, Avery is the Flash of China, and she first appeared in the comics in 2016. On the show, though, we saw her in the Season 8 episode “Obsessive Impulsive Disorder” as someone working at Fast Track Labs; she returned for a phone call with Meena Dhawan in “The Man in the Yellow Tie.” Playing her was actress Piper Curda who fans might know from I Didn’t Do It and Legacies.

Next up: Max Mercury. A character from comics’ Golden Age who went by a number of names back in the day, Mark Waid brought him back for his celebrated and excellent Flash comics run of the 1990s. Trevor Carroll plays Max Mercury in the Flash finale. In addition to acting, Trevor Carroll is an award-winning director for a short film called No Reservations. He could also recently be seen on Resident Alien.

The third new “Flash” type character we see here is Jess Chambers, introduced in DC’s “Future State” initiative and also seen in the Multiverse: Teen Justice comic book series. Sometimes using the name “Kid Quick,” Jess is a non-binary character. The role of Jess Chambers here is played by Hana Destiny Huggins, who just might be the “Hana Huggins” that IMDb has a listing for whose credits include an upcoming film called It’s A Wonderful Knife.

Shall we ever see these characters again in live-action? We certainly hope there is someday an opportunity to see them ride the lightning….

New CW Head Throws Shade At The Flash

New CW President Brad Schwartz has thrown shade at The Flash while propping up another series.

Published

New CW Entertainment President Brad Schwartz today threw some shade at The Flash when propping up one of The CW’s better new performers, Wild Cards, when doing an interview with Deadline.

“You’ll probably be hearing more announcements from us very soon,” he said. “That show did great. It grew 10% versus what The Flash did in the same spot the year before. So, here we are beating shows that everyone’s very romantic about. We’d very much like to renew that one.”

Obviously, this is to show that Canadian imports perform better than more expensive fare… but might it be considered that The Flash was a show in its ninth season – a time when new audiences might not be interested in jumping on to series? Or, perhaps that portions of The Flash fandom had moved on, with no interest in The Cecile Show? Finally, The Flash Season 9 mostly aired at a time where producers and/or cast were unable to promote it, during the 2023 strikes, which makes the comparison very unfair.

Wild Cards is a fun series, but there’s no reason to denigrate The Flash or the superhero shows that made The CW great. Hopefully this was just a wild misunderstanding of his quote. The fact of the matter is: Sometimes more expensive fare is worth investing in. Especially considering how Schwartz hypes up the new season of Superman & Lois, that should be known to the new people in charge of The CW.

Flash Cast Member Returns for the Superman & Lois Finale

A major actor from The Flash will be playing a role in the series finale of Superman & Lois.

A major cast member from The Flash will be appearing in the series finale of Superman & Lois.

No, it’s not Grant Gustin, sadly… the actor in question is Tom Cavanagh, the actor who brought us infinite Wells variants. Cavanagh revealed this recently at a convention, where he talked about how he usually enjoyed directing season finales for the show, but was unable to in this case because Gregory Smith had already signed on to direct the Superman & Lois finale.

Superman & Lois showrunner Todd Helbing, who had also worked with Cavanagh before on The Flash and recruited him to direct the series’ 100th episode among others, instead suggested he has a role in the finale.

No word yet on what that role might be. As Superman & Lois is at a different spot in the multiverse, it doesn’t necessarily even have to be a version of Harrison Wells or Eobard Thawne. It could serve as a good closer, though, to the Arrowverse in general, as Superman & Lois is the last gasp for that world on The CW. In any event, you can see video of Cavanagh speaking about this (and more) at our Superman & Lois portal, KryptonSite.

The final season of Superman & Lois premieres this Fall on The CW.

Flash Missing: Vanishes In Crisis, April 25, 2024

The “Flash Missing: Vanishes in Crisis” headline in the Flash TV series pilot was dated April 25, 2024.

While events of the series would ultimately speed up the timeline, Flash fans surely remember the final moments of the pilot episode of the Grant Gustin-led series where we see a Central City Citizen newspaper graphic announcing “Flash Missing, Vanishes In Crisis.” The date of that article? April 25, 2024.

Which happens to be… today.

When The Flash premiered in 2014, one might have expected that April 25, 2024 might be the right time for the final episode of a 10-year run… of course, as we saw, the Crisis happened a few years earlier, The Flash ended in 2023 instead, and it all might have been a good thing, considering how strikes and pandemics got in the show’s way. Still, it’s fun to think about, and it’s fun to remember that fantastic rush we had after the end of watching such an excellent premiere. And hey – not only did we get nine seasons of the show, but we also had a bad Flash movie that the series was far superior to, even in its worst moments. Win-win!

Ride the lightning, everyone.
