Robbie Amell Discusses Possibility Of Firestorm Reappearing In The Flash

The Flash actor Robbie Amell talked about the chances of Firestorm somehow returning to the show after his death in the second season.

Fans of the show will remember that the recurring character gave his own life to save Central City last season, with an evil version of Ronnie Raymond that went by the name Deathstorm and came from an alternate universe appearing in a later episode and also meeting an untimely demise. With this in mind, many hope that the original version of the character might somehow return, but Amell appeared somewhat skeptical about the prospects of such a development:

“Well the nice thing is when you’re dead in that universe there is always another Earth, but I think that version [Earth-1] of Ronnie is dead because he sacrificed himself to save the city, but you know there is always Earth-3, Earth-4, Earth-5…”

Amell was also asked whether he’d be open to play a Marvel character, or if he remained committed to the DC brand. “No, I have no loyalties,” Amell said. “[DC has] killed me a couple of times, and I’ll always gladly go back. But, at the same time, I’m a huge fan of Marvel movies. I like what they’re doing. It has less to do with it being Marvel or DC and more just being a character that I’m interested in and speaks to me.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
