Fans waiting for the highly anticipated crossover event with The CW’s DC Comics heroes have been getting bits and pieces of information regarding who or what will be the threat from Earth-X.
Earth-X is a multiverse world where the Nazis won World War II and the crossover event “Crisis on Earth-X” will see the heroes from The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow converge for Barry and Iris’ wedding. The villains of Earth-X (mirror images of the heroes) will crash the festivities and there is one character who fans have been speculating about; Reverse Flash.

The Earth-X version of the Reverse Flash will be played by series regular Tom Cavanaugh. Cavanaugh is a series regular introduced in the first season as Dr. Harrison Wells. It turns out that Wells was killed and replaced by Eobard Thawne. When Thawne is defeated, Cavanaugh returned next season and the one after as different multiverse versions of Harrison Wells. So why does this Reverse Flash look like Wells? We’ll just have to wait until the crossover to find out.
Cavanugh does return as the Earth-2 iteration of Wells next week on The Flash.
