Robbie Amell Joins THE FLASH as Another Justice Leaguer

Robbie Amell Joins THE FLASH as Another Justice Leaguer

Recently, we told you that Superman Returns star Brandon Routh and Sin City actress Devon Aoki had joined the cast of CW hit series Arrow as Atom and Katana, respectively. But what’s happening on the casting front of Arrow new-born sibling spin-off, The Flash? Well, as of this morning, things just got even more intertwined from the familial perspective as The Tomorrow People star – and younger cousin of Arrow lead Stephen Amell – Robbie Amell has officially joined the cast in a recurring role as Ronnie Raymond, a/k/a ½ of Firestorm, the atomic-powered, matter-changing superhero extraordinaire.

According to Deadline, “[Raymond] is a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s fiancé who plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen into The Flash.” Currently, there’s no word on the inclusion of Raymond’s Firestorm second half, Martin Stein.

So let’s just get this out of the way because we all know you’re wondering: no, we don’t know if or when Robbie and Stephen will share screen time together, but they have to, right? That’s just too good of an opportunity to pass up. Wouldn’t that make for just the most awesome crossover event? Can anyone else say sweeps?

What do you think of this latest bit of Flash casting? Are you happy to see Robbie Amell back on the small screen? What other DC Universe characters would you like to see on The Flash? Let us know in the comments below!

    He looks awfully old to be Felicity Smoak’s stepson. 😉 (For those who don’t understand:

    Really looking forward for them to meet in the flash.. (Ollie&Ronnie) I think it’ll be great and awesome !!

  3. OrcBeaN says:

    They definitely need to give some love for the Flash rouges gallery. He has the most solid line up of baddies in the DCU and they need to be given the highlights they deserve.

  4. I think they should have kept the Tomorrow People…It would have been nice to see where it was going. But this is a cool add. DC is trying to keep up with Marvel and their TV/MOVIE/COMIC World.

  5. Ian says:

    But if they want diversity, they can go with Jason Rusch. Just saying. 

  6. The Trickster!!!   I’m sure they could work up some story about how the explosion caused an accident at the circus James Jesse performed at. He could steal some star labs tech and tweak it in order to take them out and attempt to blame it on another star labs malfunction. The coloured hair isn’t too farfetched in todays society, and the clown-like costume would come from the circus. The Flash needs to have the comedic side we’ve all grown to love and expect, and I think the Trickster would be an amazing combination for some great laughs.
