It has been teased for sometime (and was even hinted at in a previous episode), but it looks to be confirmed now that Gorilla Grodd is heading to The Flash according to showrunner Andrew Kreisberg.
Kreisberg tweeted, “”@armenvfx just showed us a little Grodd VFX in honor of @geoffjohns birthday and it blew our puny human minds!”

Gorilla Grodd first appeared in The Flash in 1959 and was created by writer John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino. He has the power of mind control and can also project telekinetic force beams, telekinetically transmute matter, and transfer his consciousness into other bodies.
The Flash returned from its mid-season break last week. Check out the synopsis and promo below:
Dr. Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) former protégée, Hartley Rathaway (guest star Andrew Mientus), returns to seek revenge on his mentor after being affected by the particle accelerator explosion. Now able to manipulate sound waves, the brilliant Rathaway is a dangerous threat to both Wells and The Flash (Grant Gustin). Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) is thrilled when she’s hired by the Central City Picture News as their newest cub reporter. Unfortunately, her editor (guest star Tom Butler) pairs her with a veteran reporter, Mason Bridge (guest star Roger Howarth), who wants nothing to do with her. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) recalls his first day on the job at S.T.A.R. Labs when he met Hartley and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker). Joe (Jesse L. Martin) asks Eddie (Rick Cosnett) for a favor but asks him to keep it a secret from Barry.
