In the premiere of this season of The Flash, Robbie Amell’s Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm seemingly sacrificed himself to save Barry Allen and Central City from the singularity that appeared due to the events of last season’s finale.
But with all the Earth 2 goings-on, the second Harrison Wells, and Zoom’s continued recruitment of metahumans from that parrallel world, it was only a matter of time before we got an opportunity to see another alternate version of the core cast.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Amell will be reprising his role, this time as the Earth 2 version, known here as Deathstorm, and his wife in that reality is another well-known villain: Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker).
From EW’s reveal:
“We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. “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.”
Perhaps this is why Martin Stein was covered in blue flame before joining up with Jay Jackson as the new Firestorm.
