As genre fave The Flash gears up for its firth season, the Grant Gustin-starrer has moved to add a new recurring character to its ranks.
Courtesy of Deadline, Sacred Lies’ Kiana Madeira has been brought in to play Spencer Young, aka the villainous Spin. Officially pegged as “a social media influencer who seizes the opportunity to make her dreams of becoming a famous reality when she discovers that there is a new hero in Central City,” the character will debut in the fourth episode of the new season, going on to be a semi-regular part of the season.
Comic book-wise, Spin debuted in 2008’s Flash Vol 2 #238. There, he was a male media mogul called Mr Auerbach. For The Flash, the character is being rejigged as a female social media star.
Season 5 of The Flash is set for an October 9th premiere on The CW in the US, with the series to return shortly after that here in the UK.
