'The Flash' Casts Kelly Frye as Plastique

29 July 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than one week after it was revealed that CW's Arrow spin-off The Flash will feature the DC Comics character Plastique, E! Online reports that actress Kelly Frye has signed on to play the explosive character.

The initial report hinted that Plastique, a.k.a. Sgt. Bette Sans Souci, will be an ally to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), which indicates that the series is straying from the character's comic book roots as a villain. This new report reveals that the character was a bomb disposal expert in Iraq, who was given the ability to turn everything she touches into a bomb, due to exposure from the same S.T.A.R. Labs meltdown that gave Barry his super speed. She is reportedly on the run from nefarious U.S. government forces who want to use her as a weapon, when she finds an ally in Barry Allen.

Weather Wizard And Professor Zoom Confirmed For The Flash

28 July 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This won’t be the most earth-shattering report to come out of San Diego Comic-Con, because we already knew that these characters would appear on the upcoming CW series The Flash, but confirmation has come through that Flash villains Weather Wizard and Professor Zoom (also known as Reverse-Flash) will be a recurring part of the show’s first season.

Weather Wizard (played by Chad Rook) is the main villain in the show’s pilot episode, but has a very minor role, serving as more of a plot device than anything, so it will be cool to see him reappear at some point throughout the season. When Prison Break alum Wentworth Miller was cast as Captain Cold last week we heard that he’d be bringing the villain team The Rouges along with him so it’s safe to assume that Weather Wizard will be a part of that.

As far as Professor Zoom goes, »

Gorilla Grodd to appear on The Flash series

27 July 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those of you lucky enough to see pilot for the CW’s upcoming series The Flash may have noticed a little easter egg pertaining to one of the scarlet speedster’s most beloved and outlandish villains: Gorilla Grodd. Well, according to DC Chief Creative Officer and The Flash executive producer Geoff Johns, that wasn’t an accident.

During the massive Warner Bros./DC Television panel at San Diego Comic-Con late Saturday night, Johns himself said,

“You will see Grodd. That cage is not a mistake.”

Now that’s not much to go on, but it is confirmation from Johns himself, so somehow, somewhere down the line, Gorilla Grodd will show up. How they’ll pull off a hyper-intelligent, super-strong, telepathic gorilla on a TV budget remains to be seen, but based on the effects they’ve been able to pull off for the Flash himself, anything is possible.

Plastique Will Appear On The Flash TV Series

24 July 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Flash is quickly heading our way, and adding new DC Comics characters to its cast list left and right. Just last week, Prison Break star Wentworth Miller signed on to play one of the Flash’s biggest villains, Captain Cold, and just before that The Tomorrow People alum Robbie Amell (cousin to Arrow star Stephen Amell) boarded the show as the superhero Firestorm. They join already-announced characters like Killer Frost and Vibe, Professor Zoom, and Weather Wizard.

Now, we’ve got another name to add to that list, as TV Line reports that Sgt. Bette San Souci, a.k.a. Plastique, will appear on the show as a “fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an Ied in Iraq.” Like the other “metahumans” on the series, Plastique is exposed to the S.T.A.R.

Robbie Amell And Wentworth Miller Join ‘The Flash’

24 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The upcoming third season of The CW’s Arrow and its spin-off series The Flash, are both receiving quite a bit of positive buzz in the lead-up to their season premiere’s this fall. Between the excellent cast, writers and visual effects for The Flash (not to mention the planned crossover with Arrow), it’s looking very likely that Warner Bros. have another hit show on their hands.

Now it’s been revealed that the freshman superhero series has made two more excellent additions to its already-fantastic cast. Both Robbie Amell (The Tomorrow People) and Wentworth Miller (Prison Break, Resident Evil: Afterlife) have joined The Flash as two more DC Comics characters with extraordinary abilities. If Robbie Amell sounds familiar to you, it might be because he is the real life cousin of Arrow star Stephen Amell (which dare I say may have helped him nab the part). He played »

Wentworth Miller to guest star in The Flash

21 July 2014 12:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Prison Break star and screenwriter Wentworth Miller will guest star in The Flash as a supervillain...

News

Wentworth Miller, the actor who made his name as heavily tattooed structural engineer Michael Schofield in Prison Break and then went on to make a bit more of his name by writing an acclaimed screenplay for Chan-wook Park's Stoker, is to guest star in The CW's The Flash.

Miller is to play the role of Leonard Snart, familiar to comic book fans as the petty criminal who accidentally pimped his gun into a freeze-ray and became the nefarious Captain Cold. Despite having a name that makes him sound like a lemon-based lozenge designed to relieve kids' sore throats, Captain Cold is actually a pretty nasty customer. The leader of The Rogues, he's guaranteed to make life difficult for Central City's Flash.

Snart will first appear in episode four of The Flash, which »
