Half of Firestorm Joins Flash TV Cast

Category: Flash News, Media — By

Robbie AmellMore Flash TV news: The Flash is adding a new supporting character who will look familiar to readers of the comic books: Ronnie Raymond, better known as one of the two people who combine to form Firestorm: The Nuclear Man.

According to DC’s website, he’ll be “a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s fiancé, and he plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen into the Flash.”

Considering that Killer Frost/Caitin Snow comes out of the Firestorm corner of the DCU, linking the characters makes sense.

Raymond will be played by Robbie Amell, most recently seen on The Tomorrow People. (And yes, he’s related to Arrow star Stephen Amell – he’s his cousin.)

Flash and Firestorm may not seem like an obvious combination, though they have of course worked together in the Justice League and in various universe-spanning events…but back in the 1980s, Firestorm appeared in a series of backup stories in the pages of The Flash, making his appearance here even more appropriate!
