A big change is coming to The Flash.

“The Flash does this knockdown, drag out Superman II fight in the streets with the rogues, and everyone sees The Flash,” Kreisberg tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s no longer an urban myth. He can’t be dismissed. The world starts to change and is starting to have to accept that there are these crazy things out there. That will have repercussions going back into Starling City as the world starts to change.”
The episode, which is the first time Prison Break alums Miller and Purcell have appeared together on screen since the show wrapped, also is the first supervillain team-up of the series.
