Flash star Carlos Valdes is heading to Legends of Tomorrow
This week’s epic Arrow-Flash crossover won’t be the only time you’ll see these worlds collide this season.
EW has learned exclusively that Carlos Valdes is slated to appear on the upcoming midseason spin-off DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Details on what his Flash character, Cisco Ramon, will be doing on Legends are being kept under wraps, but there are a few things we can infer based on what Valdes told EW on the Vancouver set: “I did get to do an interesting take on this character on Legends of Tomorrow,” he says. This could mean that we’ll be seeing a much younger or much older version of Cisco.
Legends stars Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory, Heat Wave), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson/Firestorm), and Ciara Renée (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl). The disparate heroes and villains are brought together by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) to defeat immortal threat Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).
Cisco is currently romantically involved with Kendra, though the latter reunited with her long-lost, centuries-old lover Carter Hall, a.k.a Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), during the first night of the Arrow–Flash crossover.
Valdes is slated to appear in an episode early in the show’s run, and he may not be the only one to cross over. “Part of the fun of Legends is the fact that it takes place all throughout history — future and past,” says executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “One of the things we’re having so much fun with is the fact that everything is up for grabs, everything is possible.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will debut Thursday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. ET. The two-night Arrow-Flash crossover continues Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
