Liam McIntyre Joins The Flash

It’s no secret that we here at GS love Spartacus. We also love The Flash, so it’s good news all around! It’s been announced that Liam McIntyre will be appearing on an upcoming episode of The CW’s runaway (ha, get it?) hit show.

In a turn of events, Liam will be a bad guy this time around. He’ll be guest-starring as Mark Mardon, a/k/a the “Weather Wizard.” Don’t let the tame moniker fool you, though – this guy can wreak some serious havoc. If you remember back to the pilot, the first meta-human we saw was named Clyde Mardon. He did some serious damage to Central City before Barry and crew took him out. Mark is his brother, and will be looking to avenge his brother’s death.

Liam isn’t the first Spartacus alum to cross over to The CW. The station’s other DC Comics hit Arrow has made a delightful habit of hiring ex-gladiators. Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Amanda Waller), Katrina Law (Nyssa al Ghul), and Nick Tarabay (Digger Harkness) have all made the jump as well. Liam – who played Spartacus on the hit Starz show – will certainly fit right in.

I know I can’t wait to see Liam back in action on The Flash – his episode should air in late February/early March.

Anyone else kind of hoping for a Spartacus-themed crossover episode?
