876639Not letting the Vibe news be the only Flash casting news to come out today, and coming after they broke the news that Iris West and her father would be African-American, the folks at Bludhaven Banter have landed another Flash pilot scoop, that the pilot is casting a detective named Eddie Thawne… surely a reference to good old Reverse-Flash Eobard Thawne.

(Guess Hunter Zolomon was busy)

According to the casting breakdown, Detective Eddie Thawne will be played by someone in their late 20’s to early 30’s and he came to the Central City Police Department as a transfer from Keystone. He’s the star of the precinct and manages to get accolades that Barry can’t take credit for himself. However, the breakdown warns “his past is a mystery and he harbors a dark secret.”

Let’s guess… he likes wearing the color yellow?

You can read the Bludhaven Banter post that broke this news here.

(The Bludhaven Banter post also mentions an openly gay character. Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper, anyone?)

    Wouldn’t the gay character be Singh? He was even mentioned in the Arrow episodes.

    Director Singh is gay (in the comics, at least). He is secretly dating Hartley.

    Singh is most likely the one Blüdhaven Banter is referring to, since he’s most likely part of the regular cast.

    I would much rather it was Malcolm Thawne, a.k.a. Cobalt Blue, Barry Allen’s long lost twin brother. http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Malcolm_Thawne_(New_Earth)

John Wesley Shipp Returns As Earth-2 Flash on Stargirl

John Wesley Shipp will be playing The Earth-2 Flash in Stargirl Season 2.

Flashes

While his Flash of Earth-90 has sped off into the afterlife, John Wesley Shipp still has another old role to return to… with a more familiar background!

Jay Garrick will be firmly established as the Flash of Earth-2 – just like the classic comics – and John Wesley Shipp himself will be playing the role in the ninth episode of Season 2 of DC’s Stargirl. Shipp – who starred in the 1990 Flash TV series and later played Henry Allen and Jay Garrick (living on Earth-3) on The Flash – will be reprising his role. EW broke the news today.

This casting, of course, reinforces Stargirl’s role in the Arrowverse — yes, we are still calling it that, no matter what The CW wants us to say. The members of Stargirl’s new generation of the Justice Society was, of course, seen at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths as being the heroes of the new Earth-2.

No premiere date for Stargirl Season 2 has been announced yet, so it may be some time before Jay Garrick speeds in.
