The Other Man in the Yellow Suit. Talking with the Flash’s Matt Letscher

Eobard Thawne

The Flash just finished its freshman season on the CW, and it went out with a bang.  The season ended with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) facing offf with his mother’s killer, the man in the yellow suit, the Reverse Flash.  The Reverse Flash off course, turned out to be Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) but even that was a mask.  He was really Eobard Thawne, a speedster from the future, who hates the Flash, and found himself trapped in the past.   But when he first arrived in the 21st century, he wore a different face. The younger Thawne was played by … Continue reading
