alum Clancy Brown has taken the role of General Wade Eiling
for The Flash
. While the role is reccuring, we won't get to see his appearance until the 5th episode.
According to the Hollywood Reporter
, “Brown will play General Wade Eiling, also known as the General, the head of a black ops army team pursuing Plastique (Kelly Frye) in the hopes of using her as a human weapon. Described as a tall and imposing man, with a ‘face carved from years of duty,’ Eiling is fanatically intent on protecting American interests around the world and may have ties to a central Flash
In the DC comics, The General first appeared as an antagonist in the Captain Atom
series in the 80’s. He then went on to become a minor menace in the Justice League, which became more prominent in the JLA
. He also appeared in the animated series Justice League Unlimited
and Young Justice
Brown is not new to the DC Universe. Having voice acted in LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite
, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
(video game), Batman: The Brave and the Bold
, and the Green Lantern: The Animated Series
, it’s no surprise that he would take on another DC role.
Welcome back to the DC Universe, Mr. Brown. Good luck catching a woman who can turn any object she touches into an explosive device.
