The Flash is making some changes for the upcoming season!!
Actor Jesse L. Martin is stepping down.
After eight seasons playing sage father figure/detective Joe West on The Flash, the actor is stepping down from being a series regular.
He has confirmed that he is still expected to appear in “multiple episodes” of the season 9 of the CW’s Arrowverse series.
Jesse is also filming a new pilot so this could be the main reason he stepped down.
The showrunner was asked about the final scenes of the Season 8 finale. See what he said.
A few cliffhangers are presented in the final moments of Season 8. After Barry and Iris hint that the negative forces will need to choose a new avatar going forward, Mark Blaine is met with an unseen character emerging from his Consciousness Resurrection Chamber. What can you tell us about what you’ve set up here?
WALLACE: There’s two separate things there. I’ll answer the first thing first, which was the Negative Speed Force avatar…Yeah, it’s funny. It says in the episode, as Deon has been pointing out all the way back in Episode 815, there has to be balance in the universe, which means there must be a Negative Speed Force avatar. And since we just saw one die, I’m pretty sure that the negative forces are going to have to come up with a new one. The question is, who will that be? Stay tuned. I’m pretty sure you’ll get the answer to that sooner rather than later.
The next thing is, what’s in the box, right? [Laughs] Oh, I’m not gonna tell you that. Tune in [for] Season 9 and you will find out immediately what’s in the box. The big clue as to what’s in the box is the voice. That isDanielle Panabaker’s voice, so some version of Danielle Panabaker’s coming out of that box. The question is, which one? Let the debate begin because there’s many ways to go.”
So excited for Season 9!
