Arrow star Stephen Amell previously confirmed that we will be seeing more characters from Central City on the series, despite plans being scrapped for a Flash backdoor pilot. And now, we know of at least two characters from the planned Flash spin-off series who will first be appearing on Arrow. Thanks to a Reddit user (via Superhero Movie News), a casting sheet for S2E19 – which was recently titled “The Man Under the Hood” – lists two actors who are intended to be series regulars on The Flash: Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes. Panabaker plays Caitlin Snow, aka the civilian identity of Killer Frost, while Valdes is Cisco Ramon, aka the alter ego of Vibe. Below is the leaked casting sheet in extremely low quality, as well as a list of the cast for this episode.
Stephen Amell – Oliver Queen/Arrow
Simon Burnett – Oliver Stunt Dbl.
Katie Cassidy – Laurel Lance
David Ramsey – John Diggle
Emily Bett Rickards – Felicity Smoak
James Michealopoulos – Deathstroke Stunt Dbl.
Atlin Mitchell – Sara Lance/Canary (probably a double)
Danielle Panabaker – Caitlin Snow
Carlos Valdez – Cisco Ramon
JJ Makaro – Stunt Coordinator
James Bamford – Fight Coordinator
Hugo Steele – Security Guard #2
Colton Haynes – Roy Harper
Manu Bennett – Slade Wilson
Summer Glau – Isabel Rochev
This episode of Arrow has particularly been shrouded in secrecy. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim originally stated that the episode’s title reveal was being saved for a special announcement, which we never saw. Much has been speculated regarding “The Man Under the Hood” title, ranging from Roy Harper adopting a Red Arrow/Arsenal/Speedy name to an appearance by Red Hood. Also worth noting on the casting sheet is that S.T.A.R. Labs is mentioned several times. Perhaps this episode is set in Central City? Plus, the following episode, which was originally going to be the backdoor pilot for The Flash, is titled “Seeing Red”. Coincidence? Perhaps. Stay tuned for more Arrow news as we have it.
