Robbie Amell Talks Returning to The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow


Robbie Amell who plays Ronnie Raymond and is the second half of Firestorm, recently spoke on going back to shoot The Flash for season 2 and whether he will be on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, during an interview with Movieweb for the homevideo release of his latest film The Duff. As it’s been hinted at. He also goes on to talk about the Superhero Fight Club promo, which was directed by Glen Winters.

On his return to The Flash:

“All of those questions will be answered shortly, but I can’t actually tell you anything about it. What I can tell you is I’m going back to shoot more episodes of The Flash in July.”

This also confirms that his role will begin shooting in July, meaning there’s only a month away before Season 2 of The Flash most likely begins shooting.

He was also asked where would Season 2 start off from with his character:

“I haven’t gotten any scripts yet, but it picks up immediately where the finale left off, because it was such a big cliffhanger, you have to. I don’t know what I’d like to see. The nice thing about the finale was getting to actually play Ronnie. You saw Ronnie in my first episode, and then I was this schizophrenic, frightened man, and then I was trying to figure things out with my other half, and I finally got to kind of play Ronnie in the finale. I was enjoying that character. I’d like to play more with that, and the relationship with Danielle Panabaker’s character Caitlin, but I always have so much fun shooting with Victor, so anything else Victor and I can shoot together would be great.”

He also went on to discuss how impressed he was with the “Superhero Fight Club” promo:

I don’t know who’s idea it was, creatively, but we were doing just a photo shoot, and they were like, ‘By the way, there’s a stage.’Glen Winter, who directed a bunch of episodes, directed it, and Bam Bam and all of the fight choreographers from Arrow and The Flash, all choreographed. They just banged it out in like a day and a half of photoshoots, grabbing people when they could, and it was unbelievably smart. I know nothing more than what you’ve seen. There’s been no talk of implementing it, but it was one of the best marketing strategies I’ve seen in a long time. It was a blast to shoot, and I would absolutely love to do some more Superhero Fight Club stuff.”
