The Flash Season 8 is currently filming its “Armageddon” episodes where a first look at Tony Curran as Despero is revealed via set pics.
Users on Twitter have posted what looks to be a cut-out image of Despero used on set as apparently Tony Curran will be made to look like the DC villain through the use of CGI.
In the comics, Despero also has a third eye, and if you take a close look at the first image, right in the middle of the forehead looks to be that third eye.
While the first image does look a bit goofy and it is The CW we are talking about here, hopefully, Despero looks a lot better once the special effects are finished.
Details include “Armageddon” will kick off The Flash Season 8 with a five-part event premiering on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. ET, and will feature numerous guest appearances from The CW DC shows including Javicia Leslie as Batwoman, Brandon Routh as The Atom, Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Chyler Leigh as Sentinel, Kat McNamara as Mia Queen and Osric Chau as Ryan Choi, with Tom Cavanagh as Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash and Neal McDonough returning as Damien Darhk.
In the comics, “Armageddon” was a 1991 crossover event that dealt with the mysterious Monarch traveling back in time whose true identity was a mystery and who was said to be a superhero who went insane, killed all other superheroes, and took over the world.
Despero is described in The Flash Season 8 as a powerful and intelligent alien possessing incredible telepathic powers who left his homeworld—Kalanor—under mysterious circumstances. Now he’s facing a deadly mission on Earth, one whose outcome will decide the fate of humankind and put him on a collision course with Team Flash.
