The Flash Robbie Amell cast as Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm

It’s hard to stand out in a busy place like Central City, but we’re pretty sure it’s newest resident will be instantly recognizable to DC Comics fans.

Robbie Amell is joining this fall's eagerly anticipated The Flash in the recurring role of Ronnie Raymond, better known within the DC Universe as ½ of the hero Firestorm. In the world of The Flash, Ronnie is a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow's fiancé, and he plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen into the Flash.

Of course, fans of the character may be able to hazard a few guesses as to what else may be in store for him. The character of Firestorm is unique among super heroes in that it’s not the secret identity of one person, but two. In DC Comics – The New 52, Ronnie is fused with the far more cerebral Jason Rusch into the nuclear-powered Firestorm after coming in contact with the mysterious “God Particle.” Recently, Firestorm played a key role in the massive Justice League crossover event, Forever Evil, and can currently be seen in The New 52: Futures End.

“Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg and myself designed the pilot and series to include Ronnie (aka Firestorm),” said Executive Producer Greg Berlanti, “and to actually have someone with Robbie's talent playing the role is beyond exciting. We can't wait for viewers and fans of the character to check it out.”

“I'm so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on The Flash,” Amell said. “Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can't wait to get started!”

Robbie Amell is perhaps best known for his role as Stephen on The CW’s The Tomorrow People and has appeared on 1600 Penn, Alcatraz and Revenge. And if the last name wasn’t a tip-off, he also just happens to be the younger cousin of Arrow star Stephen Amell.

Speaking of Arrow, it’s been making quite a few casting announcements itself of late. Nice to see The Flash keeping pace, and keeping it in the family.

More to come…

We all knew it was coming; I'm just surprised by the character he's playing.

I thought he'd end up in the show as Nightwing
 
Well this makes sense. We already have Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost started out as a Firestorm villain.
 
How long will it be for Felicity Smoak and Ronnie Raymond to interact down the line?
 
Knew it was coming.

I really hope they have Green Arrow, Firestorm, The Flash and The Atom all team up for an episode.
 
Weren't we told that Caitlin's fiancé is dead anyway, so this casting should likely be for flashbacks.

So Which will mean no Ronnie, no Ronnie as firestorm in the future? Unless he somehow faked his death or turns up alive somehow. Or they could have Jason Rusch as the firestorm later.

The description that I saw merely said that she "lost" her fiancé. So wording it that way could be their out. For example, maybe he's still alive, but she just doesn't know it.
 
She said the explosion killed him in the pilot. But yes, that doesn't mean he isn't still alive.
 
How long will it be for Felicity Smoak and Ronnie Raymond to interact down the line?

What for, unlikely they will be stepmom and son as they were in comics.

Probably one more superhero planned for felicity to sleep with.
 
Stephen Amell just tweeted "Hey Robbie Amell, Welcome to the Justice League of America"

Meanwhile, the MoS universe has Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

Make them the same universe, WB. STAT!
 
I can see him going Dr. Manhattan and just not being able to out himself together until whenever he appears. Maybe he appears to Caitlin as a "ghost" until he fully materializes.
