The Flash won’t be the only DC superhero in his new TV series.
Actor Robbie Amell, the cousin of Arrow star Stephen Amell, has been cast as Ronnie Raymond, one half of the superhero duo known as Firestorm. In the comics, Firestorm is created when two different physicists are fused together during a nuclear accident, which results in them becoming one entity with the ability to hurl nuclear flames and transmute elements. Ronnie Raymond is often paired with a character named Martin Stein, but there’s no word yet on when he might make an appearance on the show.
Robbie Amell will make his debut as Ronnie Raymond in the third episode of The Flash. The first episode will race onto the airwaves October 8.
I love the way this DC T.V. universe is shaping up
