One of the Arrowverse’s most-watched series is coming to an end. We refer to the flash series with Grant Gustin, which delighted us with many battles, intrigues, romance, action and laughs. The series will have a ninth and final season. Grant Gustin announced the news on his official Instagram account. In it, he posted a photo indicating that this would be the last season he would wear the Flash costume. However, the series continues to give us something to talk about. Now we could see the first glimpse of Captain Boomerang in the flash.
The comments from his post were quick to come in, who said they wanted to see more seasons of the scarlet speedster. It would be a good thing. However, the new plans of the CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, David Zaslav, for DC do not count on the continuation of the CW productions.
It also leaves the question of who the villains he will face this season will be. One of them seems already confirmed, and it’s Captain Boomerang, albeit played by someone different. This is probably the version from another universe. This is considering that he had already faced the version of his dimension in Arrow.
Captain Boomerang In The Flash, a first look at the character
While filming the ninth season of the flashsome pictures have been disclosed from the film set. This one shows Grant Gustin fighting with a new version of Captain Boomerang. This time he will be played by Richard Harmon, the actor who starred in The 100.

Captain Boomerang in the flash will have a new version of the character. This villain originally appeared in Arrow, dying at the hands of Prometheus, also known as Adrian Chases. The actor who originally performed this role was Nick Emad Tarabay. It may have been attributed to Crisis on Infinite Earths situation. However, we’re not ruling out that Flash created the character in some Flashpoints.
We don’t know if he will be the main villain this season, although to be honest it’s unlikely. Although he’s a villain who in the comics and the animated version always gives Flash a lot of trouble, he’s not the strongest of them all. However, there’s a chance he could be part of a supervillain team, which would be a different touch for Captain Boomerang. This one is known to dislike teamwork.

As for the actor who will play Captain Boomerang in the flash, he participated in several productions, both in series and in films. Starting with Jeremiah, in which he participated in an episode and in the Smallville series. The actor has also participated in films such as Percy the Lightning Thief. He was also in the Bates Motel saga, being in four episodes as Richard Sylmore. One of his greatest successes was in the series The 100, in which he was part of the regular and main cast. This is also the case of the series of Van Hellsing and Counterfeitsboth on Netflix.

Captain Boomerang is one of the direct villains from The Flash to DC. This one is of Australian origin and is a bank robber who emigrated to the United States to continue his criminal madness. This character appeared in Lightning #117 and since then had conflicts with the speedster causing quite a bit of trouble.
This character’s real name is George Harkness. This villain grows up in a precarious situation with many difficulties. Since childhood, he was fond of boomerangs and learned to make a weapon out of them. He would use them to rob banks in his home country, beginning his career as a thief.
When he went to the United States, he continued his mischief by stealing jewelry until the Flash stopped him. He was locked up for a long time until Amanda Waller recruited him to Working group X. The first time he competed with them, he fought against Enchantress and Incubus, winning.

He would break out of prison, even if he would be arrested again and again and be part of this team. This time he should stop the Starfish Project in Corto Maltese. However, on this occasion, the results did not live up to expectations since Captain Boomerang and an important part of the team died in this mission.
This character has appeared several times in DC movies. Among these we have the two versions of suicide squad. We will also have to see if he will be in the new the flash film.
Do you think Captain Boomerang will appear in The Flash? We’ll read you in the comments.
