Arrow is seeking an Iris West type… No, just kidding. (Too soon?) The Flash, however – in addition to Wendy – is casting the season-long role of a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man “with an edge.” The casting call lists the character as “John Clark,” which is obviously fake/a nod to the DC Comics letterer. Though I must wonder if one of Clark’s works hints at the character being introduced…
Some people are already speculating that this may be Jay Garrick, and I think that’s distinctly possible. With the cameo of Jay’s helmet in the season finale, he’s an obvious inclusion for the series (he’s not a character I’d like to see appear “with an edge”, but there could be a good reason for it). Or maybe it’s someone else entirely, of course.
IGN spoke with Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold) and Dominic Purcell (Heat Wave) about their roles in the upcoming show Legends of Tomorrow. The thirteen-episode series will feature them alongside heroes like White Canary (Caity Lotz), the Atom (Brandon Routh) and others, and they’re obviously different from the more more conventional heroes. In this interview, the duo speak about their characters and potential role in the series.
Which character would you like ‘John Clark’ to be?
