From the CW Network, DC Comics and executive producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow), The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh. Season two returns Tuesday, January 19.
Robbie Amell is set to make his return to the CW’s Flash this season after his character Ronnie Raymond was killed in the premiere. However this time he’ll be playing the Earth-2 version of himself with a dark twist.
“We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash. You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm.” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said.
Comic readers know that Deathstorm has appeared in two variations, the first being when Raymond was resurrected during the Blackest Night Green Lantern cross-over event and the second being a member of the evil Justice League’s Earth-3 Crime Syndicate.
Central City forensic investigator Barry Allen is, always charming and – as a result of a scientific experiment gone awry – now the fastest man alive! He’s The Flash, zigzagging through the action-packed new series from the creative team behind Arrow and based on the supersonic DC Comics character. With his life shadowed by his mother’s murder and his father wrongly convicted of the crime, Barry finds that his newfound power of super speed grants him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Barry quickly discovers he’s not the only “metahuman” created by the explosive disaster – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Now, to protect the innocent, Barry and his close friends who know his secret, race to combat evildoers in one astonishing adventure after another.
