You’ll never guess who’s been cast for The Flash season 2. Go on guess. Give up? Ok, I guess I’ll just have to tell you. Why have you got to do everything the boring way?
TVLine reports that Violett Beane has been cast as Jesse Quick aka Jesse Chambers aka Liberty Belle (alter egos must be confusing for postmen). In the comic book world where I live, Jesse is a speedster who inherited the formula for taping into the speed force from her father, Johnny Quick. However, it remains to be seen whether or not she will receive her powers in this way on The Flash (or have any at all). So far the CW have described her character as “a brilliant but quirky college student who gets caught up in the battle between The Flash and Zoom”. Of course she is. The Flash (as brilliant a show as it is) is a universe populated entirely by brilliant and quirky people.
But wait there’s more!
The Flash have also cast Tokamak…y’know…Tokamak? No? Well ok he’s not the biggest or best known of characters but he is a Firestorm villain and he’ll getting all acted by Demore Barnes. Tokamak is described as “a charming, but cocky scientist who was affected by the same Particle Accelerator explosion that created the Flash. When Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) recruits him to join the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, Hewitt jumps at the opportunity to fulfill his destiny as a powerful meta-human”
