Two new additions to the pilot are almost certainly upcoming villains
As previously reported, Grant Gustin has the lead role as Central City CSI Barry Allen,and as already reported here at the Outhouse
, The Flash‘s
pilot has added Law & Order's
Jesse L. Martin as Barry’s surrogate father Detective West.
Now it’s been revealed that Rick Cosnett (The Vampire Diaries) and Danielle Panabaker (Shark) have joined the pilot’s cast. Cosnett will play Detective Eddie Thawne, described as “a recent transfer to the Central City Police Department, whose past is a mystery and who harbors a dark secret.”
Panabaker’s character is Caitlin Snow, “a highly intelligent bioengineering expert who lost her fiancé during an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs.”
Any Flash-fan will recognize Eddie Thawne as Eobard Thawne, who in the comics was Professor Zoom AKA Reverse-Flash. Also in the DC Comics Universe, Caitlin Snow was a scientist whose body was accidentally fused with ice, which transformed her into Killer Frost.
No exact date has been set for the pilot yet except to say that it will premier sometime in the Fall TV season.
