In past 2 seasons of The Flash we’ve seen classic Rogues like the Weather Wizard, the Trickster, Pied Piper, Captain Cold, and Heatwave, with the last 2 making the jump to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Casting details are slowly coming out as the CW starts shooting new seasons for all their DC shows, but we still don’t know what bad guys Barry Allen will be up against in season 3 of The Flash. Well, we’ve got a source on the inside who’s given us some casting breakdowns, and it looks like we might be getting a few more of the Rogues next season.
First we have Sam Scudder, the original Mirror Master. He is described as:
Male, 30s, open ethnicity. A master thief with supermodel looks and an ego the size of the Grand Canyon. Scudder is one of the most charming criminals you’ll ever meet. The only thing he loves more than money is himself. After his sudden, mysterious disappearance three years ago, Scudder has returned to Central City seeking fortune and revenge. Open to offer only / cameo ideas as well. RECURRING GUEST STAR.
Next up is Rosalind “Rosa” Tannhauser.
[ROSALIND “ROSA” DILLON]Female, late 20s, open ethnicity. There’s crazy and then there’s crazy… and then there’s Rosa. A wild-eyed whirlwind of a woman, this vexing, unpredictable, mentally unstable criminal has a history of violence and a nasty habit of turning people’s worlds upside down. Open to offer only / cameo ideas as well. RECURRING GUEST STAR.
All the language is playing on the image of spinning a top, so this sounds like it’s going to be a genderbent version of the Top, who in the comics is a man named Roscoe Dillon.
And lastly we have [FRANCIS]Female, 18 or older to play 17, open ethnicity, bright, a good kid, kicked around from foster home to foster home, Francis is now with an abusive foster father, John James, and his submissive wife, Karen. Sick and tired of being hurt, Francis has been having blackouts during which time she becomes her alter-ego, a meta human, who has superhuman strength and a desire for revenge….POSSIBLY RECURRING GUEST STAR (12) Shooting this month.
This sounds like it’s Frances Kane, otherwise known as former Teen Titans member turned villain, Magenta. It could also be Thorn, a classic Flash villain who’s alter ego Rose blacks out and becomes the monster of vengeance, Thorn.
What do you guys think about Mirror Master, the Top, and Magenta coming to CW’s Flash?
