When The Flash returns next Tuesday for its midseason premiere, Team Flash will have to deal with The Turtle.
Aaron Douglas will play DC Comics villain The Turtle in “Potential Energy,” reports EW.com.
In the comics, The Turtle was known for using tricks of slowness against Jay Garrick, and on The Flash, the metahuman can slow time itself.
“In a surprisingly funny twist, Cisco [Carlos Valdes] has actually been hunting The Turtle the entire series,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told EW. “To Barry’s surprise, everybody knows about Cisco’s hunt for the great white whale, which is The Turtle; he’s the only one who didn’t know about it. We love the idea that there was a villain out there that they knew about, but they just haven’t bothered to tell the audience about yet. All Barry wants to do is get faster, because if he can get faster, he can take on Zoom. He’s going up against a villain who is literally slowing him down. This is one of our best episodes coming back that we’ve ever done. It feels big and emotional.”
