(Warning: the following may contain mild SPOILERS for the future of the CW's The Flash, and in particular its resident super-intelligent ape, Gorilla Grodd. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise...)

Now, if there's one thing that it has long been proven that fans of DC comics love, it's super-intelligent apes. Sure, most of us love Kryptonian God figures, Gotham-based bat-folk with family issues and Amazonian S&M fantasies, but there's always the prospect of complete and utter disinterest.

A vastly intelligent and distinctly dastardly ape, though? Now that's something everyone can get behind.

Which is of course why it's such excellent news that...

It Seems Gorilla Grodd Is Set to Have a Way Bigger Role in 'The Flash' Than We Previously Thought

That's right, Flash fans — it seems that Grodd (who has thus far been limited to a handful of episodes in The Flash's first two seasons) could well be set to take on a far more central role in the near future.

The reason?

Well, the show's executive producer — Andrew Kreisberg — recently revealed that while Grodd wouldn't be back in Season 2, he might just be set to become the primary antagonist in Season 3. As Kreisberg argued:

"I would liken the Gorilla City thing to Ra’s al Ghul. You know, you hear about 'the man from Nanda Par Bat' in [Arrow] Season 1, and 'the man who showed Malcolm the way,' and then you met Nyssa, then in Season 3 you met Ra’s. So, it’s a long-term thing."

Which, considering that Ra's al Ghul became the main antagonist in Arrow Season 3, would seem to suggest that Grodd (and his comic book hometown of Gorilla City) will be taking on an equivalently central role in The Flash's third season.

Which, what with that 'who doesn't love super-intelligent apes' thing, is very good news indeed, if you ask me...

What do you think, though?
