There was some news about Firestorm released at the recent San Diego Comic-Con. Looks like Match-heads will be saying goodbye to Robbie Amell and hello to Franz Drameh!
Why No Robbie Amell on Legends of Tomorrow?
According to Victor Garber, who plays Martin Stein (and one half of Firestorm) for The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, you’ll find out what’s going on with Ronnie Raymond in the season premiere of The Flash on October 6. [Entertainment Weekly online]
Will Jay Jackson join Professor Stein to become Firestorm?
At San Diego Comic-Con, Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Phil Klemmer seemingly confirmed Jay Jackson’s part in Firestorm by saying Jackson is “probably the last person Professor Stein (Victor Garber) wants to share Firestorm with.” [ComicBook.com]
What we do know is Franz Drameh is playing Jay Jackson, a former high school athlete, whose pro-career was derailed by injury. Now making ends meets as an auto mechanic, Jay will come to have a surprising affiliation to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew.
Speculation is that Jay Jackson is a stand-in for the comic character Jason Rusch. Legends of Tomorrow writers may be avoiding the name “Jason Rusch” since a character named that was introduced in the previous season of The Flash. Folks are also speculating that Ronnie Raymond will die in The Flash season premiere, causing Caitlin Snow emotional turmoil resulting in her becoming Killer Frost.
Sorry for the delay in getting this news to you folks. I was on the road for a week (hence the lack of posts here). My thanks to the numerous folks who shared these news stories with me. Y’all are the best!
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
