The Flash At Comic-Con 2016: Jesse L. Martin Talks Joe West During Flashpoint

The Flash TVO Jesse L MartinThe end of The Flash Season 2 marked as the beginning of the adaption of an iconic DC Comics’ storyline as Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) decides to go back in time and save his mother from being murdered by the Reverse-Flash. But by doing so, the universe around him will forever change as a consequence of time travel and that will be playing a large theme in the third season of the show.

Last week at San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in The Flash Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 3. Jesse L. Martin, who plays Detective Joe West, father of the West children as well as surrogate dad for Barry and a core member of Team Flash, was one of the great talents that we got to speak with as he teased his character in the Flashpoint universe when we come back for Season 3.

Highlights of the interview:

-Whether or not Joe will even be aware of his son being a speedster in the Flashpoint universe.

-How different the relationships around Joe will be in the Flashpoint story.

-A tease or two of Joe’s working relationship with Tom Felton’s character, Julian Dorn, at the CCPD.

-If Flashpoint will bring back any deceased characters to the show, like Rick Cosnett’s Eddie Thawne.
