The Flash Casts Tony Todd as the Voice of Villain Zoom!

The fall season will be here before you know it and The Flash is celebrating by revealing the voice of Season 2's villain, the DC Comics character Zoom. According to Variety,Candyman star Tony Todd will voice the character, who will first appear in the second episode of the season, titled "Flash of Two Worlds."

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that part of the mystery of Season 2 will be what's under the Zoom costume and likened the situation to James Earl Jones' iconic portrayal as the voice as Darth Vader. "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," Kreisberg told the magazine.

The series intends to draw out the Zoom reveal and Kreisberg noted that fans of the comics should not necessarily jump to conclusions about his identity. "We have to service the entire audience, both the fans and the non-fans, and I think we’ve shown up until this point a great deal of respect and reverence for the source material, so that we always feel like we’re fulfilling the comic book fans’ expectations while also not spoon-feeding them stuff directly from the comics," said Kreisberg. "So the story of Zoom and who and what he is… hopefully comic book fans will be happy because we’ve come up with a clever way to spin the tale, but that also makes it exciting for the people who aren’t as familiar with the comics and are just enjoying the show on its own terms.”

What do you think? Are you excited for Zoom and everything Season 2 promises to bring?
