Firestorm Will Appear on \’The Flash\’

Firestorm

Firestorm is the latest DC superhero to show up on the small screen.

Just a couple of days after it was revealed that Brandon Routh would be playing The Atom on Arrow, another DC superhero is heading to that show’s sister series.

TV Guide has revealed that Robbie Amell will show up on The Flash as Ronnie Raymond, who is otherwise known as Firestorm. Ronnie will be Caitlin Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, who in the pilot we learn dies during the same accident that gave Barry Allen his powers. Obviously as he’s showing up as Firestorm he didn’t die, and likely gained the his powers from the accident as well.

Firestorm has been a big part of DC’s New 52 and is a heavy focus of the current “Future’s End” event going on in the comics, so having him show up on screen isn’t a huge surprise.
