There’s a chill coming to Central City later this season on The Flash and her name is Killer Frost. Even before the series debuted on The CW, word broke that Danielle Panabaker would be playing Caitlin Snow, a new incarnation of the classic Firestorm villain, Killer Frost—except in this world, Caitlin’s a loyal member of Team Flash. She was also the fiancée (and later wife, spoiler alert) of Ronnie Raymond, Firestorm’s younger half. And now we’ve got our first look at the actress’ killer costume.
Caitlin’s villainous future was teased in the first season finale of The Flash during one of Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) time-travel induced visions. But during her appearance on the CBS talk show, The Talk, Panabaker debuted the first clear picture of her character post-Killer Frost transformation.
“It was awesome, I’m so excited,” exclaimed Panabaker during the show. “You know, I’m such a girl and I love getting dressed up in that look. We started working on the look a couple of months before it actually shot, so our first suit was like a one-piece, kind of like a Catwoman [costume], very sexy. But it didn’t feel quite right, and then we changed it to be a top and these really cool leather pants. And the hair was awesome! It started…as this short little pixie wig, and we just kept adding more and more hair. It’s great. I’m really excited.”
Panabaker added that she “can’t wait” to be a bad girl on the show. “I get so jealous. All of the boys get to go out there and duke it out, I wanna suit up with those boys for sure!”
While a villainess turn for Caitlin would be an extreme change for her character, there is a way that the show can keep both Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost on the series. The second season of The Flash has introduced the multiverse, and the evil Killer Frost could simply be a version of Caitlin from another world.
One way or another, we will discover Caitlin’s destiny this season on The Flash!
