CODE 8 Star Robbie Amell Is Open To Returning To THE FLASH, But Would He Play Another Superhero? - EXCLUSIVE

CODE 8 Star Robbie Amell Is Open To Returning To THE FLASH, But Would He Play Another Superhero? - <font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font>

Robbie Amell had a memorable run in The Flash as Firestorm, and in a new interview to promote Code 8, the actor tells us that he is open to reprising the role or playing another superhero altogether...

This Friday, Code 8 starring Robbie and Stephen Amell arrives in theaters and On Demand. Set in a world where 4% of the population is born with varying supernatural abilities, these "Specials" face discrimination and live in poverty, often resorting to crime. That's where Connor (Robbie Amell) comes in as he's forced down a dark path in order to pay his mother's medical bills. 

Lured into a lucrative criminal world by Garrett (Stephen Amell), the gangster helps Connor sharpen his powers in order to execute a series of crimes while a militarized police unit hunts them down.

Many of you will remember Robbie's memorable stint in The Flash as Firestorm, and when we had the opportunity to talk to the actor about Code 8, we made sure to ask if he'd consider a DC TV return!

"I love everyone on The Flash and I would go back if they'll have me and I'm available. The only problem is that they have so many characters now and such an amazing cast that all deserve their own time so, you know, I don't want to step on any toes. If it ever called for it, I would be there but it's great to see Danielle [Panabaker], who I love, directing episodes now and just the success the show has had...I'm very lucky to have been a part of it at the beginning. You never know!"

We also asked Amell if he'd be interested in playing any other comic book characters, and while he's open to the idea, it sounds like he need a break from superpowers! "As far as other superheroes, I did The Tomorrow People with superpowers, I did Firestorm, I did Code 8...I feel like I need to play a "normie" for a while. [Laughs] That being said, I would definitely play another superhero!"

It would be great to see Amell's original Firestorm back in The Flash, especially as it feels like his character has some unfinished business after he disappeared into that wormhole in the season one finale. For now, though, Code 8 is an absolute must-watch if you want to see the actor in action.
