When Jay Garrick’s helmet appeared through a worm hole in the finale of The Flash the internet exploded. Was it an Easter egg? Was Jay to follow? Speculation can rife!
At Friday’s “DC Entertainment: From Page to Screen” panel, executive producer Geoff Johns confirmed that it wasn’t just an Easter egg.
“That’s not an Easter egg, that’s a story point,” Johns said. “We’re going to see Jay.”
In the comic, Jay Garrick was the direct inspiration for Barry Allen to adopt “The Flash” as his own superhero identity after he read an issue of “The Flash.” Eventually the pair would meet, where it was revealed that they populated parallel Earths, Earth-1 and Earth-2, respectively, and the two would go on to become good friends. The executive producers of “The Flash” have already confirmed that we will be seeing more of the Multiverse in the second season, so perhaps even more Earth-2 DC characters will come along.
“The Flash” will premiere its second season in the U.S. on Tuesday, October 6 and 8 PM EST
