Following last week's news that Wentworth Miller is playing Captain Cold in CW's The Flash, TV Line reports that the villainous Sgt. Bette Sans Souci, a.k.a. Plastique will appear in Season 1 of the Arrow spin-off. Here's how the site described this explosive character, hinting that she may be an ally to Grant Gustin's title character.
"The series' incarnation of the metahuman is a fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an IED in Iraq. Since being exposed to the Central City explosion, she can turn any object into a bomb with just a touch of her hand - not a bad comrade for The Flash to have on his team, eh?"
In the DC Comics, Plastique was primarily a villain who battled with Captain Atom and Firestorm. We reported earlier this month that Robbie Amell will play Ronnie Raymond, one half of the nuclear man known as Firestorm. Plastique has also been connected to the Justice League and the Suicide Squad, a team of villains brought together by Amanda Waller, who were featured in Arrow Season 2.
It isn't known who will play Plastique at this time, or how many episodes she will be appearing in. It's possible The CW will reveal the casting during their Comic-Con panel later this week, so stay tuned for more details.
