Clearly hoping to bide their time with the casting and debut of the character himself, our first exposure to the villain will be vocal, as Candyman actor Tony Todd as been cast as the “voice of Zoom.”
The show’s executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explains the decision to Variety:
“Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different.

Just one day after The CW's Legends of Tomorrow added Falk Hentschel as Hawkman, DC Comics revealed even more casting news today, announcing that Casper Crump has signed on to play Vandal Savage. First introduced in 1944, Vandal Savage has been one of the DC Universe's biggest heavies for over 70 years, frequently going up against the Justice Society and most recently fighting alongside Etrigan the Demon and Madame Xanadu in The New 52's Demon Knights. However, he's never been brought to live action life before (though he's appeared in animated movies and shows, including Justice League: Doom and Young Justice).
Vandal Savage is immortal, having spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world. Crump will first be seen in the role in the crossover episodes of Arrow and The Flash, »
