Flash TV Tidbits

The Flash mid-season hiatus won’t be done until January 19th, but here are a few casting tidbits to tide you over for now.

Comicbook.com announced that JSA villain Geomancer will be appearing on the show in 2016. He’ll be played by Adam Stafford, and will appear in the 13th and 14th episodes.

And TVLine reports the casting of another new speedster:

I can report that for Episode 16, the CW hit is guest-casting the DC Comics character of Eliza Harmon, whose TV incarnation is described as an “exceptionally bright scientist” with a “split personality a la Jekyll and Hyde.” In DC lore, Eliza was a Lex Luthor-created speedster, hmm….

At the time we spoke to EP Greg Berlanti, he wouldn’t/couldn’t shed much light on the aforementioned Episodes 13/14 — “We haven’t made them yet” — but it sounds as if the cast will have their hands full bringing to life a far-out premise! “I don’t know if they’ll work,” Berlanti admitted. “When we do wacky stuff on that show, I never know if we’ll be able to pull it off. Usually, the actors are the ones who sell it.”

Another interesting bit of casting that was recently announced is comedian Tone Bell as Iris’ new boss Scott Evans.

One wonders if Eliza Harmon will be hero or villain, although the description of “Jekyll and Hyde” suggests she might be a bit of both. There’s no reported casting for her yet.

Looking forward to these new characters? What characters would you like to see in the second half of the season? Feel free to share them in the comments!

      They did, and I hope we’ll get them soon. There was a rumour going around that we’d be seeing Mirror Master very soon, but it seems to have fizzled out.

      Yeah, I really like that too. Geomancer is an odd choice; I’d never heard of him and it makes me chuckle that he seems like a knock-off of one of my Marvel faves Avalanche.

        I’m not familiar with either, so my first thought was that his powers reminded me of Terra.

        Actually that was my second thought. First I remembered an old computer RPG from the Bard’s Tale series. About 2/3 of the way through the game you have the opportunity to transform one of your fighters into a new spellcasting class using earth based powers. Naturally they called it a Geomancer.

      I hope we see them too! As Josh says, Raider has already appeared, but I really want him to come back. Plus it probably goes without saying that I want the Top :>

    Mirror Master would be fantastic.
    Then we could have a nice Rogues line-up with Cold, Heat Wave, Boomerang, Raider, MM and throw in Golden Glider for a bit of New 52 flavour. There’s my fanboy wet dream
