‘Flash’ Goes Ape in First Look at Keith David’s Solovar From ‘Gorilla City’
The Flash seemed initially not to have gorillas on its “Gorilla City” tour, but may finally have found some in the latest photos. Meet DC’s Solovar, as the Keith David character gets a comic makeover in some impressive new photos from Tuesday’s “Attack on Gorilla City.”
Where initial photos (and even some of the early trailers) lacked in actual apes for the Earth-2 “Attack on Gorilla City,” The CW released six new promo shots from the first leg of our two-part event. In it, Solovar is notably altered to an albino gorilla (in the comics your garden variety ape in a cape), while it looks like we’re in store for some impressive arena action.
So reads the synopsis for “Attack on Gorilla City,” which precedes an “Attack on Central City” the following Tuesday:
BARRY AND TEAM TRAVEL TO GORILLA CITY AND FACE GRODD
When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov). Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R Labs.
As we learned from Barry’s future vision, this war on the planet with the apes will have a hand in Iris’ fate, but will The Flash succeed in its ape adventure? Watch the trailer again below.
