We’ll be seeing another familiar face on The Flash this season.
The show’s executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly, “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.”
Ronnie Raymond, played by Robbie Amell, was formerly one-half of the superhero duo Firestorm with Professor Martin Stein. Ronnie died as he and Martin tried to save Central City from a singularity at the end of season 1. Ronnie was also an employee of Star Labs and Caitlyn Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) love interest. (They even got married — for a day.)
In the comic books, Ronnie was resurrected as Deathstorm who became a member of the Black Lantern Corps, during the Blackest Night event.
In a trailer released for season 2, the aforementioned Panabaker will also play an Earth-Two version of herself. In that other universe, she is the villain Killer Frost.
