Reports surfaced this week that Spartacus actor Liam McIntyre was spotted on the set of The Flash. It was confirmed today that he will be appearing on the show as Weather Wizard. Many people, me included, thought that Clyde Mardon would become the resident Weather Wizard but after Joe shot him that possibility became unlikely. McIntyre will play Clyde’s brother Mark Mardon whom the audience and Clyde thought to be dead.
Mardon will come into episodes fifteen and sixteen of The Flash. He will come to Central City seeking revenge on the man who killed his brother. We can assume that we’ll see similar powers to Clyde Mardon’s in the pilot episode. Not only similar but much more vast and under control.
This casting marks another member of The Rogues being added to the show. Now with Captain Boomerang, Trickster, Pied Piper, Heatwave, Weather Wizard, and Captain Cold, the crime team is almost complete. It would be a safe bet to think sometime soon Mirror Master is going to have a role to play. Considering it is still season one and the three top-tier Flash villains have been introduced shows that The Flash has made good on staying true to the comics.
Liam McIntyre now joins a long list of Spartacus alumni to join up with the DC Universe. Arrow’s casting director has plucked several main characters from the same pool. Deathstroke (Manu Bennett), Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), Nyssa Raatko (Katrina Law) and Captain Boomerang (Nick Tarabay) were all on Spartacus before venturing to Starling.
The Flash comes back January 20 at 8/7c on The CW
