In addition to the ’90s version of The Flash, Shipp also played Henry Allen, the father of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen, and Jay Garrick, the Flash of Earth-2.

I have also been told by DC insiders that if everything goes according to plan, they want Tom Welling back from Smallville, Lynda Carter from Wonder Woman, characters from the DC Universe Titans series and also some sort of appearance from the DCEU. The plan is to connect all of DC through the TV, streaming services and movies.
