Bart Allen is making his live-action debut in The Flash Season 7 but with a big twist
Jordan Fischer has joined the cast of The Flash in a recurring guest role as Bart Allen aka Impulse. This will mark the first-ever live-action adaption of the character who in DC Comics lore is the grandson of The Flash Barry Allen. In The CW however, Bart Allen will be the son of Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen from the future. Fischer will make his debut as Bart Allen in the 150th episode of The Flash which is coming later this season.
“Bart is the fastest teenager on the planet, but due to Bart’s penchant for wildly impulsive behavior, stunned parents Barry and Iris will have their hands full trying to teach their new son patience. But it’s a task they’ll have to accomplish, in order for their family to work together and stop Team Flash’s biggest threat yet!” says an official character description.
The CW is known for repurposing story threads as we have famously seen done with Tom Cavanaugh’s Harrison Wells and the mentor turned evil speedster as seen in season 1-3 of The Flash. Back in Season 5 of The Flash we met Nora West-Allen the daughter of Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen from the future, specifically the year 2049 and was known to have been working with Eobard Thawne aka The Reverse Flash.
It is yet unknown is similar story elements from this previous plot thread will be repurposed for the introduction and recurring appearances of Bart Allen. Fans of Bart Allen however have something to look forward to in this current season of The Flash with the live-action debut of Impulse.
