After yesterday brought news that Candice Patton will be playing Iris West in The CW’s The Flash, now comes word from Variety that Carlos Valdes has landed the part of Cisco Ramon. Ramon is officially described as a “mechanical engineering genius” but long-time DC fans will recognise the name as the superhero Vibe. Whether that transformation takes place in The Flash, we’re not sure right now. Given how The Flash is set to feature a few more characters with superpowers than Arrow, it wouldn’t be particular surprising to see Vibe appear at some point.
Currently, the show is set to star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/Flash, Rick Gosnett as Eddie Thawne/Professor Zoom, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Candice Patton as Iris West and Jesse L. Martin as Detective West.
