‘The Flash’ episode 7 preview: Meet new villain Blackout

The Flash -There is going to be quite a bit to look forward to on the new episode of “The Flash” airing on The CW Tuesday, but one of the biggest things is rather simple: Getting an opportunity to see another new, interesting villain placed within the world of metahumans.

This time around, we are talking about Blackout. He’s a guy who could drain our hero completely of his power, but he is also in part evil because he has to be. Electricity is fully now in his DNA.

This character on the show is being played by Mike Reventar, and speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about his role, he had the following message to pass along:

“To play a character that is considered the strongest source of electricity on earth, who is deemed an electrical vampire — he is cursed with the urge to drink. He cannot stop. He has to keep drinking electricity. What’s cool is that’s how he’s introduced. STAR Labs finds out an electrical substation is being drained drastically fast. The Flash shows up, and you see blackout drinking from the station. It’s going to look amazing.”

The great thing about seeing so many villains on “The Flash” during the early going is simple: You are setting up a great lineup of people who could come back at some point in the future. Of course, we do want to see some of the Big Bad characters at some point, but this will be coming by the end of the year.
