“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl — The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!,” stated series exec producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “Thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”
The Flash (Grant Gustin) shows off his super speed in these stills from tonight’s all-new episode of The Flash.
In “Fast Lane,” Barry teams up with Wells (Tom Cavanagh) to figure out a way to close the breaches, but they are distracted by a meta-human nicknamed Tar Pit (Marco Grazzini) who can transform into liquid asphalt.
According to EW, the 27-year-old actor is set to reprise his role as Ronnie Raymond in an upcoming episode, but there’s a bit of a twist.
As you probably remember, Ronnie (aka Firestorm) sacrificed himself earlier this season to save Central City. This time around, we’ll see the Earth-Two version of Ronnie!
“We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told the mag. “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.”
Don’t forget – The Flash is back on Tuesday, January 19 @ 8PM on The CW.
