The Flash is just two episodes away from concluding its second season as Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) a.k.a. the Fastest Man Alive has been fighting the dangerous Hunter Zolomon a.k.a. Zoom (Teddy Sears), exploring the Multiverse and much more. While we have no details yet on story elements and character introductions, we did just get a pretty dope piece of news about the creative team for the third season.
Zack Stentz (who has written films such as X-Men: First Class and Marvel’s Thor), the writer of Kevin Smith’s episode that aired this week titled “The Runaway Dinosaur” tweeted today that he has joined the series as a consulting producer for Season 3.
Stentz has also worked on shows like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (which featured Arrow’s Summer Glau!) and he was just recently announced as the screenwriter for the currently-in-development Booster Gold film with Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl)attached to the project for the DC Extended Universe.
Small announcement. I had such a fun time on @CW_TheFlash episode 221 that I’ve returned as a consulting producer for season 3. So stoked!
