Bug-Eyed Bandit Coming to The Flash

Walking Dead alum Emily Kinney has been cast in The Flash as the Bug-Eyed Bandit and will be appearing in the upcoming 18th episode of the series titled “All-Star Team-Up.” The traditional character is a male who goes by Betram Larvan, which has been changed to Brie Larvan for the series.

The Bandit will pose as the first threat to the Atom when Ray and Felicity travel to Central City for help with Ray’s A.T.O.M. Exosuit from Cisco, Caitlin and Wells. The villain’s origin will give her ties to Felicity and the two will even be considered hacker rivals who engage in a hacking battle that revolves around Felicity saving the Flash. It will be great to see the Bug-Eyed Bandit appear on the show and the gender change will offer a nice take on the origin story as well as adding more depth to Felicity’s story.

First Look at Arrow’s ATOM Suit

The first official picture of Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) in the ATOM costume for Arrow has been released! I think that the suit looks pretty amazing and have been so happy since knowing we would get to see it this season on the show. A big part of what makes The Flash and Arrow so much fun is that they stick to the comic book style and are putting everyone into costumes. It will be great to see Palmer’s character get much more involvement and progression throughout the rest of the season, especially knowing it will payoff with him suiting up and hopefully joining the team!
