Firestorm! Yes, Firestorm will join The CW’s Dc Universe as a character on upcoming Flash series. He will be played, partially, by Robbie Amell (Tomorrow People) and real life cousin of Arrow’s Stephen Amell. Robbie Amell will be playing the Ronnie Raymond half of Firestorm.
Variety had this to report: “‘Flash’ executive producerGreg 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’.”
So two questions: Who will play physicist Martin Stein? The other half of Firestorm. Finally, will this make him one of the first characters, outside of the Smallville continuity, to have the power of flight on TV?
