Warner Bros. big screen plans might be taking a bit longer than fans would like, but their television plans are exploding! Deadline is reporting more casting news for The Flash TV series. According to the report, Rick Cosnett and Danielle Panabaker have been cast as Detective Eddie Thawne and bioengineering expert Caitlin Snow.
Now you might be asking, so who are these characters? Well Detective Eddie Thawne is pretty close to Eobard Thawne, who is also known as Professor Zoom or Reverse-Flash in the DCU, and is arguably The Flash’s greatest enemy. There was some speculation a while back about this.
The other casting, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, well Snow is also known as Killer Frost in the DC Universe. Snow is a bright scientist working for S.T.A.R. Labs and gains her powers when an experiment goes wrong.
This is some really great news. Sounds like The Flash will be playing off what Arrow has learned and creating another solid show based on the DC Universe. Can’t wait to see what else we get. (Source: Deadline)
