In some news that’s sure to bring a smile to the face of many a genre fan, Katee Sackhoff has landed a role in the upcoming fourth season of The CW’s The Flash.
As per EW, the Battlestar Galactica, Riddick and Halloween: Resurrection favourite has joined the Scarlet Speedster-centric series as the villainous Amunet Black, aka Blacksmith; a character officially described as a “steely and badass boss of an underground black market for supervillains” who will use any means necessary – and the whole host of metahumans under her charge – to make sure that she gets what she wants. In terms of the comic book incarnation of the character, Amunet Black debuted in 2001’s Flash: Iron Heights. Blacksmith will debut in the fifth episode of Season 4, and she joins fellow newcomers in the shape of Harley Swayer as Ralph Dibny/Elongated Man, Danny Trejo as nefarious bounty hunter Breacher, Kim Engelbrecht as the hulking, devastating Mechanic, and Neil Sandilands as the ‘big bad’ of the season, The Thinker.
The Flash premieres in the US on October 10th, with a UK airing expect to follow shortly after that date.
