This would be the fourth time since this new wave of DC Television Shows have started, that an actor would reprise their role from a previous adaptation into the current series, with Mark Hamill (The Trickster), Amanda Pays (Tina McGee) and Vito D’Ambrosio (Tony Bellows) all on The Flash.
It’s interesting to see that this new tradition is apparently going to expand to other shows. It also points to possible clues that we are seeing some sort crossover of Earths in a sense for the Infinite Crisis story, if it were to ever come to be a story.
Whenever we are able to get a hold of the Full Panel we will be sure to post it. For now go on over to The Hollywood Reporter for more further information on the casting.
