The Flash Season 4 has so far debuted a lot of new DC Comics characters and that isn’t stopping anytime soon! Our great friends over at That Hashtag Show revealed today the casting breakdowns for two new DC characters coming to Central City this season. The two characters that are coming to The Flash later this season are:
“DOMINIC LANSE: Male, late 20s – late 30s, African American. A gregarious and good-natured meta-human who has the ability to read minds. His gift becomes a curse when criminal forces capture Dominic and want him to use his powers for evil. Think young Sterling K. Brown type……RECURRING GUEST STAR
NEIL: Male, 30s – 40s, Open Ethnicity. Neil a blue collar, likable, good guy just trying to make ends meet, but unbeknownst to him, he has radiation emitting meta powers that could cause the whole city to suffer a nuclear, catastrophic explosion. Neil is unaware that he is hurting people. Think Martin Freeman on “The Office”…..PERFORMER MUST BE BALD…..POSSIBLE RECURRING GUEST STAR”
Dominic Lanse is better known as Brainstorm in the DC lore and a character that appeared in the Mister Terrific comics. According to THS, “Neil” is none other than Neil Borman a.k.a. Fallout who made his first appearance in Flash: Iron Heights. Given the fact that these characters are being cast right now, we should expect to see them in early 2018 sometime after the show comes back from its hiatus.
