HAS RED DEATH REACHED ARROWVERSE?
The Red Death has touched base in Central City – kind of. In “Memorabilia,” the most recent scene of The Flash, Barry and Iris unintentionally ended up in their little girl Nora’s memories. Amid their trip down Nora’s world of fond memories, they wound up in the Flash Museum’s Hall of Villains, where they caught a familiar face namedrop the Red Death.
After they pursued youthful Nora into the Hall of Villains, she started to watch an instructive fragment about Cicada. In the video, Central City Police Captain David Singh tended to Cicada’s killing spree. This proceeded in light of the fact that Flash neglected to stop him before he vanished. “The Flash did everything he could, but Cicada killed more people than Zoom. Or even the Red Death and the way the city saw the Flash — his legacy — was never the same,” Singh explained.
WHO IS RED DEATH?
Presented in 2017’s Dark Days: The Casting by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita Jr., Red Death is the Earth-52 adaptation of Bruce Wayne. Like his Earth-1 partner, this variant of Bruce used to be a saint. However, he ended up needing to achieve more. In his quest for power, he killed Barry and assimilated his Speed Force abilities. Presently a speedster himself, he accepted the name “Batman: The Red Death” and started to execute off his foes.
At the point when his reality started to fall, he joined Barbatos’ Dark Knights. Close by the Batman Who Laughs and a few others, he endeavoured to annihilate the multiverse with an end goal to save his very own Dark Multiverse world. At last, he survived and died in 2018’s Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1.
MAIN VILLAIN FOR SEASON 6?
So far as The Flash goes, this Hall of Villains bothers could demonstrate that Red Death is headed to the series eventually sooner rather than later. After all, the series calmly namedropped Clifford “The Thinker” DeVoe halfway through Season 3, well before he was affirmed as Season 4’s villain. It’s conceivable, then, that Red Death could even be the main antagonist for The Flash Season 6.
However, if Red Death is in reality Season 6’s villain, he presumably won’t be Bruce Wayne. Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has slackened up and enabled The CW arrangement to present Batwoman and Gotham, the Dark Knight himself seems to be untouchable for the present. “That is where they cut you off,” Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz stated in December. “Gradually but surely, we’ll simply fend off picking at it.” As such, a different character will probably be underneath Red Death’s cover if and when he touches base in Central City.
Airing Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanaugh, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Nicolet, Hartley Sawyer and Jessica Parker Kennedy.
