Robbie Amell Will Return To THE FLASH As 'Deathstorm'

Last night, a new set image gave us confirmation that Robbie Amell would indeed be returning to season 2 of The Flash, most likely as the Earth-2 version of Firestorm. Now, EW has confirmed that is the case - but with a very dark twist! More past the jump...

Last night's spoilery image from the set of The Flash confirmed that Robbie Amell would be back as Ronnie Raymond after nobly sacrificing himself to save Central City in the season 1 finale - but how exactly is that possible? Most fans assumed this was the Earth-2 version of the character they were seeing, and they'd be right... but there's a bit more to it than that.

EW has revealed that Amell will actually be playing Deathstorm: the villainous incarnation of Firestorm that was resurrected as a member of the Black Lantern CORPS in the comics. "We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash," says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. "You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm."

EW also confirms that Deathstorm will be teaming with Killer Frost (the Earth-2 version of Raymond's former wife Caitlin Snow played by Danielle Panabaker) to form a very dangerous double act.

The Flash returns Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
