15. Reverse-Flash/Professor Zoom
This trailer confirms earlier suspicions that as in the comics, The Flash TV series will reveal that it was the villain known as Professor Zoom and Reverse-Flash who is responsible for the murder of Barry Allen’s mother! Eobard Thawne is from the 25th Century and becomes obsessed with the legacy of The Flash. He travelled back in time after gaining the same powers as his idol, but lost his mind and made it his goal to destroy Barry’s life. The series appears to be taking things in a different direction as they’ve cast Rick Cosnett as Detective Eddie Thawne. While it’s possible that he’s simply an ancestor of Eobard, it’s also likely that it’s him who becomes Reverse-Flash in this version and seeing how that comes about promises to be one of the show’s biggest hooks.
