A new casting sheet searching for three major recurring characters on the next season of The Flash has made its way online. While it confirms something we already knew, with Clifford DeVoe, AKA The Thinker, being the antagonist next season, it also confirms he has a right-hand woman, named The Mechanic. She’s responsible for creating his gadgets and ensuring his plans works.
However, the big surprise on the sheet is the addition of a new recurring guest star with an option for regular status: Ralph Dibny, AKA The Elongated Man! Ralph Dibny is famous for being one of the original stretchy heroes, who famously made his love-life work, until his wife was murdered at the beginning of Identity Crisis. Whether we see Sue Dibny this season, as well, is still a mystery. Hit the jump to check out the full casting sheets with character descriptions.
[CLIFFORD DEVOE AKA THE THINKER]–Male, 40s-50, Open Ethnicity. After being struck with dark matter from the particle accelerator explosion, Clifford Devoe became a meta-human with a mega-mind. A Stephen Hawking-esque genius who’s devised an intricate plan to fix all that he deems wrong with humanity. “The Thinker” will embark upon a season long battle with The Flash that pins the “fastest man alive” against the “fastest mind alive.” FRACTIONAL (7/13) ONE SEASON SERIES REGULAR
[THE MECHANIC]–Female, 30s-40, Diverse. A highly intelligent engineer who designs and assembles a plethora of devices for the ailing Clifford Devoe. Devoe’s right hand, she’s the truest of true-believers who’ll stop at nothing to implement his plan to fix all that’s wrong with humanity-even if she loses who she is in the process. MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR
[RALPH DIBNY AKA ELONGATED MAN] Male, Mid to late 30s, Open Ethnicity. Think Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt, Ralph has the ability to stretch his body to super-human lengths and sizes…however, while resculpting his old body is easy to do, Dibny finds losing the old misguided sense of truth and slobbery, even after joining the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, is a far more difficult task to accomplish. MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR WITH A SERIES REGULAR OPTION FOR NEXT SEASON
