Ever since the show started placing hints about the upcoming presence of Clifford DeVoe, aka The Thinker in the Flash’s future, it was inevitable we would be seeing him. Abra Kadabra mentions by name, as well as Savitar twice near the tail end of the season.
Now, TVLine is reporting that the foreshadowing wasn’t just name-dropping, and The Thinker has been confirmed as the primary villain for The Flash season 4. This will mark the series’ first foray into an antagonist that’s not a speedster. With that in mind, the next season of Flash should definitely be… running at a different speed. (Sorry…)
