The Flash hasn’t even aired yet and already it boats a bigger rogues gallery than the upcoming Gotham. Variety broke the story that Dominic Purcell of Prison Break will play Mick Rory aka Heatwave. This will mark the second time that Purcell has appeared in a live-action comic book property. The first was 2004’s Blade Trinity. The flip side to this casting is that he will play a villain that is the opposite to his Prison Break brother, Wentworth Miller. Miller has already been cast as Captain Cold for The Flash series. Oddly enough this is fourth Prison Break cast member to make an appearance in the TV DC Universe. Robert Knepper has been cast as The Clock King (on Arrow) and Peter Stormare will play Count Vertigo on this upcoming season of Arrow. Crossovers of these characters are sure to happen on The Flash.
“Purcell will first be heard from in episode four when Miller makes his debut on the show. His first on-screen appearance will be in episode 10”.
The Flash arrives on The CW on October 7th, 2014.
