Teased as a possibility in two episodes of the third season, TV Line has now confirmed that Clifford DeVoe (aka. The Thinker) will serve as the main villain for the fourth season of The CW’s “The Flash” with casting for the role now underway.
Series executive producer Andrew Kreisberg previously confirmed that the fourth season would mark the first time the series won’t boast a speedster as a main series long villain after Reverse Flash, Zoom and Savitar served as the primary antagonists in the three seasons to date.
The character in the comics is a genius inventor with mind control and telekinesis powers thanks to technology he has created. “The Flash” will return this October.
