That’s right, Lex Luthor (or maybe he’s your Mr. Krabs), is coming to Central City on the upcoming The Flash series. Clancy Brown has been cast as General Wade Eiling, also known as The General in the DC Universe. Eiling heads a black ops team that will be hunting down Plastique (Kelly Frye), with plans to use her as a weapon.
Though Wade Eiling has appeared as The General, a monstrous brute, in the comics, it is unlikely he’ll make that kind of appearance here. Most likely he’ll just be the typical bent on protecting America at all costs kind of character. Brown will appear as The General starting in the fifth episode.
Also of note, TVLine is reporting that The Clock King (Robert Knepper) will make an appearance on the show too. Having first appeared on Arrow, this is another crossover character for the two shows. The Flash premieres on Tuesday, October 7th, at 8pm EST on The CW. (Source: THR)
