The DC TV universe is expanding everyday, as it was announced today that Stephen Amell’s cousin Robbie Amell, will be joining “The Flash” series as another DC superhero! Putting a spoiler warning out there for those who want to be surprised when watching the show, but here is the announcement from Variety with words from Executive Producer Greg Berlanti and Robbie Amell:
Robbie Amell Cast as Firestorm
Ronnie Raymond, a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into The Flash.
“Flash” executive producer Greg Berlanti said of Amell’s casting: “Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg and myself designed the pilot and series to include Ronnie (aka Firestorm) — and to actually have someone with Robbie’s talent playing the role is beyond exciting. We can’t wait for viewers and fans of the character to check it out.”
Amell added, “I’m so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on ‘The Flash.’ Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can’t wait to get started!”
First was the announcement of Brandon Routh joining “Arrow,” and now we have Robbie Amell joining “The Flash”! I Can’t wait to see how both characters will develop over the course of their series, and how this universe will continue to grow with more DC characters.
