In the past two seasons of The Flash, we have seen several members of The Rogues come to life with members like Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Mick Rory/Heatwave (Dominic Purcell), Lisa Snart/Golden Glider (Peyton List), Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper (Andy Mientus), Mark Mardon/Weather Wizard (Liam McIntyre) as well as both versions of The Tricksters with James Jesse and Axel Walker, played by Mark Hamill and Devon Grave respectively. But one iconic Rogue has yet to be on this show.
Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer and show-runner Andrew Kreisberg had teased that we would meet the Mirror Master, another iconic Rogue, in Season 2 of The Flash. However, we never saw him throughout the second year, but if you think about it, there wasn’t a lot of room to introduce another big Flash villain with Zoom and the Multiverse arcs being such big focus points.
However, it looks like Year 3 will be when we finally get to see the character as it was announced by CBR that Friday Night Lights star Grey Damon has been tapped to portray Sam Scudder a.k.a. the Mirror Master in The Flash’s third season! Here is how the show describes their take on Sam Scudder who will debut in episode 4:
“One of the Flash’s most infamous Rogues, Sam Scudder — aka Mirror Master — is a smooth criminal with a huge ego. Upon discovering he now has the power to travel through any reflective surface, Scudder embarks on a massive crime spree to prove himself the greatest thief that Central City has ever seen.”
Flash Fact: Katie Cassidy’s (Laurel Lance/Black Canary/Black Siren) father, David Cassidy, actually played Sam Scudder/Mirror Master in John Wesley Shipp’s (Henry Allen/Jay Garrick) The Flash TV show back in 1990.
The Flash Season 3 will kick off on Tuesday, October 4 at 8/7c on The CW. What are your thoughts on the casting? Are you excited for Mirror Master? Let us know in the comments below!
