Tony Todd Voicing Zoom In The Flash Season 2


 Flash Season 2

Variety broke the news earlier today that The Flash series has landed our favorite bee charmer, Tony Todd (Hatchet, Candyman), as the voice of DC Comics villain [Professor?] Zoom in season two.
Zoom will begin his assault on The Flash Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) beginning in episode two, “Flash of Two Worlds.”

Andrew Kreisberg says “Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different, part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. 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 compares Zoom’s appearance to Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man, revealing, “The Zoom outfit is much more organic than the Reverse-Flash suit. In a way, it’s hard to tell if it is a suit or alive… There’s no skin showing, for all you know there’s a robot underneath, or dark energy.”

Unlike last season, which revealed that Cavanagh’s Harrison Wells, Eobard Thawne in disguise, was the Reverse-Flash fairly early on, Kreisberg says the producers intend to draw out the mystery of Zoom “like a horror movie — ‘who’s the killer? Who’s under the mask?'”
