EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: The Flash’s Richard Harmon On Arrowverse’s New Captain Boomerang
The Flash season 9 is getting deeper into its Red Death saga and tonight’s episode, “Rogues of War” take things to the next level. As the episode title says, the Rogues are on the rise, bigger than previous seasons as multiple characters are factoring into the final season. One of them is Captain Boomerang, as Owen Mercer joined the start of the season,..
Being no stranger to The CW viewers, The 100’s Richard Harmon is the first actor to ever portray Owen in live-action. Unlike Arrow’s Captain Boomerang, Owen is not going anywhere anytime soon as he is one of Red Death’s allies, and things are only going to get more intense from here.
The Flash Podcast’s Andy Behbakht recently sat down with Harmon to talk about bringing the latest Captain Boomerang to life in the Arrowverse. Throughout the interview, Harmon talks about the audition process, getting to join the comic book genre, and what to expect from Owen’s arc for the rest of the season. The interview is also available in video format, which can be found here.
