Yesterday, we received word that DC character Vibe will appear in The CW's planned Flash pilot, which will spin-off from Arrow. According to the initial report, the Hispanic superhero would become a series regular if his debut appearance is a success. Now, we have some more details on the character's presence, as well as another series regular. According to Bludhaven Banter, Cisco Ramon will be a series regular who will be in 10/13 episodes of The Flash. Additionally, he has not received his superpowers yet.
But that isn't the biggest news. The site also reveals that in the pilot, there is a character called "Detective Eddie Thawne". Flash fans will notice that the name sounds similar to Eobard Thawne, aka Professor Zoom/Reverse-Flash. Det. Thawne is described as, ""leading man handsome" (late 20s-early/mid 30s) and has recently transferred to Central City Police Department from Keystone. Thawne is set to be loved within the precinct and takes the credit for a lot of things that Barry can't. However, the most intriguing part about this character is that his past will be a complete mystery. No one knows where he comes from, and he "harbors a dark secret". That does sound very ambiguous, but as a comic fan, it's easy to put one-and-one together to make two." So, it definitely sounds like Eddie Thawne will become Barry Allen's arch-nemesis in the series. However, none of this has been confirmed officially, so take it with a pinch of salt until then.
