I would… and they’ve set it up. I can tell you that I will be going back in about a week and a half to shoot more Flash.

Shipp then went on to add:

I’m not sure exactly what time it will be, but Eric Wallace and I have discussed having the opportunity to explore Jay Garrick as a mentor that we missed with Wally. There was an opportunity with Wally, but we missed it.
