It is starting to look like Arrow and The Flash are trying to integrate as much of the DC Universe into their two shows as they can. Today it has been announced that Robbie Amell, cousin to Stephen Amell who plays Oliver Queen on Arrow, has been cast as Ronnie Raymond on The Flash.
Robbie Amell appeared in The CW’s original series The Tomorrow People last TV season. The series was not renewed, but Amell is returning to the CW family again this fall. Amell will be playing Ronnie Raymond, known as one-half of the DC character called Firestorm. He will be first appearing in the third episode as Caitlin Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, whose fate is more complicated than first imagined.
Can’t wait to see how these characters are introduced and developed. This fall is really looking to be a lot of fun. The Flash will be premiering on Tuesday, October 7th at 8pm on The CW. (Source: DC Comics & THR)
