FIRESTORM Supporting Character Felicity Smoak Joins ARROW
The list of DC characters appearing on CW's ARROW keeps getting bigger and bigger. Firestorm's stepmom will reportedly appear on the show in a recurring role, portrayed by newcomer Emily Bett Rickards.
The Green Arrow show on CW is gathering an interesting and diverse cast of DC Comics characters to join the Emerald Archer (Stephen Amell) in his first solo television show. This time it's DC supporting character Felecity Smoak, (Emily Bett Rickards) who is the stepmom of Firestorm [well one-half anyway] that's been added to the cast.
Smoak is married to Ed Raymond, who is the father of high schooler Ronnie Raymond, who constitutes one-half of the Firestorm entity with physicist Martin Stein. The character is set to appear in Episode 3, which is also confirmed to be Deadshot's (Michael Rowe) debut as well.
The showrunners for Arrow have previously stated that there won't be any super-powered heroes or villains appearing on the show so don't expect to see Firestorm show up on your television screen. With Green Arrow himself just starting out in the superhero biz, we might expect to see a prepubescent Ronnie in the episode as a fun Easter Egg to all the DC Comics fans watching.
