The fifth season of The Flash is coming to an end soon. And fans of The Flash may now be treated to a new speedster that’s yet to appear in live-action. According to recent reports on social media, an episode may feature the debut of Godspeed.
Godspeed Is Coming To The Flash
Scoop account @DiscussingFilm shared that The Flash Season 5 Episode 18 will be titled “Godspeed”, and will mark the arrival of August Heart. The character will be one of the newest heroes to debut onscreen, having first debuted in the comics three years ago.
Who Is Godspeed?
Godspeed debuted in The Flash #3 in 2016. He’s the speedster alter ego of Heart, a friend of Barry Allen’s. In the first few issues on the post “Rebirth” run on The Flash, Godspeed served as an enemy to The Flash, though he has turned into an anti-hero recently.
Godspeed coincidentally marks the debut of Danielle Panabaker, who plays Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost on the series. It was revealed last summer that Panabaker will be the director for one episode this season.
What Executive Producer Says:
“I’m incredibly excited and grateful to be directing my first episode of television, and especially honored that it will be an episode of The Flash,” Panabaker previously said. “Over the past 15 years, I have been lucky to work with many talented directors with a vast array of styles and methods. I have always loved the collaborative process, and my insatiable curiosity has led me to watch, learn, and absorb as much as I can from those around me.
“I am so humbled by this opportunity to utilize everything that I have learned as a storyteller to bring an episode of The Flash to life,” she continued. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the chance to work alongside our extremely talented (and vast) team that works so hard to make each and every episode of the show. I wouldn’t be here without the support of my Flash family, and I am so thankful for this opportunity to continue to grow and challenge myself as an artist. “
