Ian Somerhalder as Godspeed in a new fan art
The new concept design was published by “subi.ozil” on the Instagram, in which Ian-Somerhalder was wearing the Godspeed suit.
In the CW Flash series, Kindall Charters played the role of August Heart a.k.a Godspeed. However, only Godspeed’s clones appeared in the series and we are going to see the real Godspeed in the next season. Showrunner said:
I don’t like spoilers… let’s just say there was a certain speedster who wore a white costume, whose clones kept showing up. Really, Team Flash has to deal with that, but we never caught the real guy or girl. Let’s just say we might find out that mystery this season
Do you wish to see Ian Somerhalder playing Godspeed role? The Flash Season 7 official synopsis:
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.
