When The Flash producers announced that Zoom would be the main villain for Season 2, they also teased that his actual identity will be kept hidden throughout the season. While Tony Todd came on to provide the voice of this nefarious nemesis, most weren't expecting this character to be unmasked until the season finale. Today, The CW released a new trailer, which teases that we may in fact find out who is underneath the Zoom suit in next week's episode, Escape From Earth-2.
Of course, we don't see who's underneath the mask in this trailer, but Zoom certainly seems ready to reveal himself at the end of this latest sneak peek. The episode, which airs on Tuesday, February 16, centers on Barry Allen and his team scouring through Earth-2 to find Zoom's lair, as they ask for help from the most unexpected source. Back on Earth-1, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) rushes to perfect Velocity-9 so that Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) can stop the Geomancer (guest star Adam Stafford).
The trailer also features footage from the episode after Escape From Earth-2, which is entitled King Shark, giving us a new look at this unique villain. This episode will also feature another Arrow crossover, with Diggle (David Ramsey) and his wife Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) coming to Central City to warn Barry that King Shark escaped from an A.R.G.U.S. holding tank. This nefarious villain will attack Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Iris West (Candice Patton), Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Barry at the West family home.
King Shark first appeared earlier this season in The Flash episode Fury of Firestorm, the iconic DC Comics' character's first ever live-action appearance in either movies or TV. King Shark is actually the henchman of this season's big bad, the super villain Zoom (Tony Todd), who came from Earth-2. It isn't known if there are plans to bring King Shark back later this season as well.
Do you have any theories about who could be under the Zoom mask? Even though this villain may be unmasked next week, we don't know for sure if Barry Allen himself will be present for this unmasking. After all, last season, fans discovered early on that Harrison Wells was Reverse Flash, but Barry himself didn't find this out until much later in the season. While we wait for next week's episode, check out the new trailer and chime in with your Zoom theories.
