Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of the CW live action verse, confirmed the news during the recent TCA presentation. The character will debut in episode 13 and 14 of The Flash.
Solovar is the renowned leader of Gorilla City, which is utopia populated with super intellectual gorillas. The city is hidden within the African jungle. Solovar is one of the most recognizable supporting character within the Flash comics. Solovar debuted in the issue 106 of The Flash, which was released in 1959.
