Rick Gosnett And Danielle Panabaker Join The CW's FLASH Show

Deadline have just posted a casting update for the CW's upcoming take on The Flash. According to them Rick Gosnett (The Vampire Diaries) will play 'Eddie Thawne' (possible Reverse Flash?) and Danielle Panabaker (Piranha 3DD) will play 'Caitlin Snow' (possible Killer Frost!) Read on for more.

Rick Gosnett and Danielle Panabaker will join Grant Gustin and Jesse L. Martin in the CW's tv series based on the exploits of DC superhero, The Flash. According to Deadline, Cosnett will play Detective Eddie Thawne, "a recent transfer to the Central City Police Department, whose past is a mystery and who harbors a dark secret." And Panabaker will join him as Caitlin Snow, "a highly intelligent bioengineering expert who lost her fiancé during an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs." Now comic fans will recognize the name "Thawne", as it happens to also be the surname of one of the Flash's most infamous villains, Eobard Thawne, aka Reverse Flash/Professor Zoom. Coincidence? Very unlikely. Also Caitlin Snow will surely become Killer Frost at some point. This all sounds very promising for fans of the scarlet speedster. Thoughts?

Will he wear a costume?

Im not racist at all but I really dislike the fact that they're making Iris West black. If I had to guess I'd say if they were ever to introduce Wally they're gonna [frick]ing make him black as well.

AOS where you at?
ezio619 - 1/24/2014, 6:08 PM
cool,never heard of Rick Gosnett and i havent seen Panabaker in awhile so yeah, very cool,i really liked Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, i thought he was very likable in the role, he had barrys personality pre -flash down pat, he was clumsy,always late but ultimately a good guy with a good heart, a hero in and out of the suit and i can definitely see him as the flash ,plus the guys ripped now,i saw his latest photo and he shredded himself, the firs season might be rocky since it is a new show,hopefully it gets picked up and we can have two shows in Arrow and The Flash in network tv and next year we get DD,IRON FIST, JESSICA JONES AND LUKE CAGE ON NETFLIX, VERY COOL SHIT!!

Sweet news....very excited to see the Flash costume and to watch the pilot!
DEVLIN712 - 1/24/2014, 6:09 PM
Not bad casting, seems to be pretty interesting...

i hate people that are really good with killer frost in injustice. half your lifebar's gone and there's nothing you can do about it
Ranger14 - 1/24/2014, 6:15 PM
Cool. Looking forward to this show!
batmanvsuperman - 1/24/2014, 6:15 PM
I like the casting cant wait

Jollem

You'd absolutely detest me then.
ezio619 - 1/24/2014, 6:23 PM
hopefully we see a picture of the flash costume soon cause they have said that he will have the costume in it and considering that this version of barry is a fan of The Arrow and gave him the mask,its gonna happen
DrunkenNukem - 1/24/2014, 6:24 PM
I hope this show would be as good as Arrow
ScorpioRisin - 1/24/2014, 6:24 PM
Why not her for Iris?
Kurne - 1/24/2014, 6:24 PM
... And why they didn't cast the blonde dude as Barry is beyond me.

Like I've said before, it seems so hard to cast a blonde as a superhero these days (Cap, Pym, Hawkeye, BARRY, Fandral, etc...).
ShadowlordSavage - 1/24/2014, 6:25 PM
Wally is Iris's nephew, he could still be white if not biracial. I knew a classmate whose step dad was black and to him that was his dad. However it's too early to say if Wally will even show up in season 1 so he could be adopted or whatever, it's speculation at this point. I just want to see how they handle the Rogues.
koolaidbag - 1/24/2014, 6:26 PM
@n1ghtw1ng2834 They can just make wally a step/adopted brother so he can be white
Jollem - 1/24/2014, 6:27 PM
@Nova - hmmm. -_-
theNiteOwl - 1/24/2014, 6:28 PM
That's awesome!

But it doesn't sound like either one is going to be villain right away.

Wonder who the first major villain is going to be?...and if they're going to do Killer Frost what does that mean for the chances of us seeing Captain Cold?
MightyZeus - 1/24/2014, 6:32 PM
Sounds great. I'm looking forward to these two additional characters joining The Flash. I'm looking forward to seeing what The Flash's costume looks like in the show.
SuperCat - 1/24/2014, 6:36 PM
Lol!! Damn you, gusto!!
Interestein - 1/24/2014, 6:45 PM
Nice casting, can't wait for this.
tzxfgl - 1/24/2014, 6:49 PM
It's Cosnett not Gosnett
JasonBlue - 1/24/2014, 6:50 PM
perfect casting! Hopefully we'll see more ethnic people in the supporting roles just so its a very diverse cast a la Grey's Anatomy.
MoonNight - 1/24/2014, 6:51 PM
Dude, if you start a sentence with "I'm not racist, but...", you're probably racist. Just sayin'.

patrat18 - 1/24/2014, 6:52 PM
She sucks as an actor.
skullboy - 1/24/2014, 6:55 PM
It's weird that they're having Killer Frost in this show if she's a Firestorm villian. And Iris is gonna be black? Sigh.
