Robbie Amell, cousin of Arrow star Stephen Amell, has been cast as Firestorm in the upcoming Flash TV series. Robbie Amell is, of course, available because the CW chose to cancel the remake of The Tomorrow People which he’d been starring in. I have no idea which version of “The Nuclear Man” Firestorm’s origin the show will be using, but I don’t doubt that I’ll be confused by it.
I’ve never really *gotten* Firestorm.
With Brandon Routh already cast as The Atom and Devin Aoki cast as Katana (did we mention that?), it looks like the CW is building its own veritable Justice League… International?
In any case, the CW’s DC Arrowverse seems to be a lot more interesting that DC’s Movieverse going forward.
