Since the announcement in July that The CW was developing a new Flash television series to spin out of Arrow, the question for many fans was who'd be playing DC Comics scarlet speedster. The answer has arrived, as Warner Bros. has announced that Glee and 90210 actor Grant Gustin has been cast as Barry Allen in the upcoming show.
It was just last week that we heard rumors about the CW's live-action Green Arrow television series Arrow adding Amanda Waller to the cast, and today, it's been confirmed. Waller is indeed joining the show and she'll be played by Cynthia Addai-Robinson, best known for her role as Naevia in Spartacus: War of the Damned.
In stepping into the role, Addai-Robinson has become the latest actress to play a character who -- probably not surprisingly -- has become one of DC's most prominent fixtures in media outside comics.
The CW's Arrow really seems to be expanding its version of the DC Universe in its upcoming second season, and the newest DC character reportedly joining the fold could really blow the lid off things in terms of making the show's TV world a lot like the one in comics: Amanda Waller, who has been in charge of the Suicide Squad and Checkmate in her illustrious career as a sometimes-evil, sometimes-not government powerhouse.
Although no one has been cast for the role just yet, reports indicate that Waller will appear in this season's sixth episode as the head of A.R.G.U.S., the government investigative agency introduced near the end of the first season by way of Diggle's friend Lyla Michaels, a.k.a. Harbinger.
