SPARTACUS Alum Liam McIntyre Spotted On THE FLASH Set As The New 'Weather Wizard'

SPARTACUS Alum Liam McIntyre Spotted On THE FLASH Set As The New 'Weather Wizard'

We've heard that the Weather Wizard would make an appearance in The Flash at some point following his brother's appearance in the pilot, and it appears as if Liam McIntyre has been cast as the member of the Rogues based on this new set photo! Hit the jump to check it out...

It appears as if Spartacus actor Liam McIntyre has joined the cast of The Flash. We met Clyde Mardon in the pilot, so McIntyre is presumably playing his brother Mark. It's strange that we've heard nothing about this casting, but PUNKD Images are reliable, so the actor has more than likely been cast as Weather Wizard if they're saying he was spotted on set in this villainous role. Hopefully this means we'll get official confirmation soon regardless. What do you guys think?

Is that the jacket from the terminator?
charlie2094 - 1/6/2015, 5:48 AM
That's pretty cool, was hoping we might get to see the actual Weather Wizard. Wonder if he'll actually have his wand or anything :P

Flash's Rogues gallery have the stupidest names of any Supervillain group. It boggles my mind that people put them up there with Batman's and Spider-Man's.
Doopie - 1/6/2015, 5:54 AM
The rogues are awesome, the flash is awesome and that there is one damn fine coat
P862010 - 1/6/2015, 5:54 AM
should of joined arrow instead flash's villians on the show have been corny as hell

@Havenless

People put Flash's villains up there with Batman and Spider-Man's villains because they're great villains.
Havenless - 1/6/2015, 5:57 AM
Mirror Master.

Weather Wizard.

Captain Cold.

The Human Pediatrist.

Captain Boomerang.


You can't even make these up.
Doopie - 1/6/2015, 5:59 AM
Don't forget condiment king. Who is a bat villain I believe
DTor91 - 1/6/2015, 6:00 AM
Between Arrow and the Flash, seems like all the Spartacus actors will have a new home. John Hannah and Nick E. Tarabay being cast in roles is probably imminent.
RextheKing - 1/6/2015, 6:02 AM
It's like they are only hiring Spartacus and Prison Break actors for these shows; I don't mind though.
Daddydeadpool - 1/6/2015, 6:02 AM
Don't forget about crazy quilt either, another batman villain....someone must have been on a major acid trip when they thought him up
Y2H - 1/6/2015, 6:03 AM
The Flash is a SMASH HIT!!!


It feels good to have a superhero show that actually has a superhero with superpowers battling super villains with superpowers. Not only that, but the daily 'Dr. Wells secret agenda' scenes keeps me interested. I always anticipate what more else going to be revealed about Dr. Wells. Can't wait to see Gorilla Grodd in action.

@Havenless

Sure, some of the names are a bit much, but they're some pretty great villains, definitely has a great rogues gallery.
TheRealMe - 1/6/2015, 6:04 AM
So it's official Flash/Arrow universe is a Spartacus/Prison Break crossover with superheroes :D

I like the guy, but like @P862010 said, I would be more happy if he has joined Arrow (but Flash is cool too) ;)
Ofniee - 1/6/2015, 6:05 AM
So, is Mirror Master going to be played by an actor from Spartacus or Prison Break?
James99201 - 1/6/2015, 6:11 AM
@havenless well obviously someone did make them up sense they exist, the "you can't make these up" only works if the thing or things you are describing is in fact not made up. And if you don't like the names then you can just turn the channel once your Dr Phil is over and the tv says up next The Flash!
James99201 - 1/6/2015, 6:12 AM
And can they PLEASE get Rob Riggle for Mirror Master
SuperCat - 1/6/2015, 6:14 AM
Weird seeing him with clothes on. That didn't come out right.
Carl - 1/6/2015, 6:15 AM
he was so wooden compared to Andy Whitfield on Spartacus. I hope this role suits him better.
LEOSTRATOR - 1/6/2015, 6:23 AM
Ok, this show has been really fun so far.
DannyRand1225 - 1/6/2015, 6:28 AM
I am really digging Flash but besides Captain Cold and Reverse Flash, all the other villains have been kinda weak so I hope Weather Wizard is given better treatment
InfiniteMonkey - 1/6/2015, 6:31 AM
LOL SuperCat!

This bloke is wasted on TV, he needs to get on with a big franchise like, He-Man or Transformers. LOL
yonny616 - 1/6/2015, 6:49 AM
Yes! I knew ever since Manu Bennet was cast Liam would probably join, but I never expected Cythia Robbinson, Katrina Law, and Nick Tarabay to come along too! Now all we need is Dustin Clare. The original actress for Naevia, Lesley-Ann Brandt was on Gotham too. I would have loved Liam as this universes Batman though. [frick] you WB for not not allowing Batman in the DC/CW universe.

@Dtor91 Nick Tarabay was already cast. He's Captain Boomerang.
Havenless - 1/6/2015, 7:17 AM
@James99201

Dr. Phil? You're a terrible guesser.

@Charlie2094

I agree, I really like Mirror Master's unique powerset, but it's the names specifically that are just so bad. Lots of characters have updated their names as the times have changed. Ms Marvel is now Captain Marvel, Ant-Mam now mostly just goes by Pym, even Marvel Girl is never called that anymore.

Flash's rogues gallery could use name changes across the board. Take a page from Reverse Flash.

There is a DC comics character called, Animal Vegetable Mineral Man ...ridiculous.
joniegogo84 - 1/6/2015, 7:27 AM
Does anybody here know that Ollie has a daughter..
tugboy - 1/6/2015, 7:32 AM
All the Metal Men have neat names.
Dmon - 1/6/2015, 7:38 AM
@Havenless Because Spider-man's Paste-Pot Pete, The Looter, The Spot, Swarm, Kangaroo, Styx and Stone, Big Wheel and all the Goblins are such awesome names. *rolls eyes*
shadearts - 1/6/2015, 7:57 AM
I thought he would always make a good Aquaman thats who he should be cast as
DCeddie - 1/6/2015, 7:57 AM
How awesome to see actors from my once favorite show continually appearing on my two new favorite shows!
Darktower - 1/6/2015, 8:09 AM
its gonna be an awesome Rogues Gallery.
Youareallstupid - 1/6/2015, 8:18 AM
Are people really saying Batman's villains names are better? Two face, clayface,Mr.freeze? How are those better than Captain Boomerang, Captain Cold or Weather Wizard? Really?
Owlman88 - 1/6/2015, 8:32 AM
I've thought about it and Mirror Master is impossible to pull off unless they go with a different version of his powers/skills/weapons like they have already done with the Pied Piper
Havenless - 1/6/2015, 8:36 AM
@Dmon

Every popular character has stupid villains. But take out the list I mentioned from Flash, and how does it impact the rogues gallery? Take out your Spider-Man list, and it has zero impact.

The fact is the Flash's bad villain names are his better villains.
JoJo1982 - 1/6/2015, 8:37 AM
Deathstroke
Amanda Waller
Nyssa Al Ghul
Captain Boomerang
Weather Wizard


I wonder who's next from the Spartacus cast
DatScarletPimPerNeLL - 1/6/2015, 8:39 AM
Damn. Dude looks like he would've been a nice DCTVU Bruce/Wayne Batman.
Dmon - 1/6/2015, 8:47 AM
@Havenless If you actually read The Flash comic you would come to understand that Captain Cold is one of the most interesting villains in all comics. And that the Rogues should get their own comic. Also the Goblins have been pretty important to Spider-Man.
Baf - 1/6/2015, 9:33 AM
Spider-Man has a Boomerang too. Haters gonna hate.
Ofniee - 1/6/2015, 9:41 AM
@Owlman88 Like in the old Flash tv series? Here he just used holograms to commit crimes.
I hope they go with his real powers though, I would love to see them do a version of the mirror world.
