“I’m coming for you Flash #Magenta,” Joey captioned it. Check it out below!
In the comic books, Magenta is part of the classic Rogues and is also the love interest to Wally West/Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale).
Hunter King wraps her arm around her younger sister Joey King‘s shoulder while walking around Disneyland on Thursday (August 18) in Anaheim, Calif.
The sisters looked like they had a blast during their afternoon at the theme park and we’re loving the Just Jared PopSocket that Hunter was seen using on her phone!
It was just announced that Joey will be guest starring as Magenta on The CW’s The Flash for an episode in October. She dyed her hair pink last month while filming the role in Vancouver.
FYI: Hunter wore Vans sneakers.
Ashley Rickards is moving on to the superhero life — on The Flash.
Via EOnline, the 24-year-old former Awkward actress will star as a female Top, one of the most dangerous members of the Rogues gallery.
Top, whose real name is Rosalind “Rosa” Dillon, has the power to make people’s heads spin. She will debut in Episode 4 as “the Bonnie to Mirror Master’s Clyde” (Grey Damon).
In the comics, Top was a male character known as Roscoe Dillon.
The Flash returns on Tuesday, October 4th on the CW.
Big things are happening on the new seasons of Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl — including one major character coming out.
“It is a significant character,” Greg Berlanti shared from the 2016 Summer TCA Tour panel on Thursday (August 11) in Beverly Hills, Calif. “We’re not trying to be coy about it. The only reason we [don't want to say who] is we really want the audience to enjoy the character development and not necessarily be ahead of the storyline.”
He added later on to a small group of reporters, “I think it’s important that people know we want to include a character who happens to be gay in the show. We had a character who we discussed that as a possibility last year internally, and it didn’t materialize. We didn’t get to the story. We just didn’t have enough real estate to deal with it in the way that we wanted to deal with it. So this year, when we were planning this season, we said to the network and studio that it was a priority for us. And everyone was cool with it.”
Greg also touched on the four-way crossover that will happen between the shows: “We’ve just started last week. I’ve mentioned that it’ll be one unified threat. We haven’t done a global threat yet on the show. So, that’s new.”

Two CW shows are teaming up for a musical crossover event!
The Flash and Supergirl will team up for a musical crossover episode.
“Yes, there will be a musical crossover,” executive producer Greg Berlanti told reporters (via EW) at the 2016 Summer TCA Tour. “There’s going to be a musical pair of episodes in the back half of the year between Supergirl and Flash.”
He continued, “Some of you may know my own personal love of musicals and actors who have been in them, and we have a number of people who can sing across all the shows who will be making some very exciting appearances in the back half of the year.”
The Flash‘s Jesse L. Martin and Grant Gustin have both been on Broadway, as has Supergirl star Jeremy Jordan.
Not to mention, Melissa Benoist also have a background in musical theater.
A familiar face will pop up in Central City this fall.
According to EW, Susan Walters will be joining the cast of The Flash as Caitlyn Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) mother Dr. Carla Tannhauser, a “world class biomedical engineer and CEO of a major research company.”
The mag reports that she and Caitlin have had a “difficult relationship,” so we’re definitely interested to see what happens!
Meanwhile you probably recognize Susan as Carol Lockwood, Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) mom, on The Vampire Diaries.
The Flash premieres on Tuesday, October 4 @ 8PM on The CW.
Katie Cassidy is sticking around The CW for a while.
The 29-year-old actress, who was killed off Arrow last season, just inked a deal as a series regular across the network, which will likely include appearances in The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and of course, Arrow.
If you remember, Katie popped up on The Flash after her Arrow departure as Laurel Lance’s Earth-Two doppelganger, Black Siren.
“It’s something that’s going to have a lasting impact not just in our season premiere, but over the next couple seasons of the show,” Stephen Amell told TVLine.com about Katie‘s appearance in the season five premiere. “It’s very important. It’s going to be critical to whatever the legacy of our show is.”
Katie is the third actor to ink this kind of deal with The CW, following John Barrowman and Wentworth Miller.
Grant Gustin and Candice Patton revealed that WestAllen — the coupling of their characters Barry Allen and Iris West — is getting a little makeover on The Flash.
Speaking with Collider, the two actors dished on the duo’s relationship for season three with a completely different timeline.
“They’re somewhat on each other’s radar and Barry’s gonna have to force that relationship,” Grant shared.
Candice added, “I think we’re finally going to see them try and have a relationship work and hopefully it’s a healthy and happy thing,” adding, “[It's] really fun.”
“Some of the stuff Grant and I have been shooting has been some of my favorite stuff, lots of really great banter and interaction,” Candice continued. “There’s one scene that happens that I smile when I think back [to it]. It’s one of the best times I’ve had so far. I think fans will really enjoy the Barry-Iris dynamic. It’s very good. So cute. It’s so cute.”
