The Flash Season 4 may be looking to cast the last three bus metahumans. According to a new report, casting breakdowns suggest that the show hopes to fill the roles of Null, Crucifer and possibly Folding Man.
That Hashtag Show revealed the potential last three bus metas and who they're likely based on: Folding Man, a "New Age hippie" with the power to travel into both the second and fourth dimensions; Crucifer, who can use the bodies of metahumans as hosts for the spirits of his fellow vampires; and Null, a jewel thief with the power to manipulate gravity, though the show's interpretation will be an African American woman rather than a white man. The full character breakdowns are below.
[NULL] Female, mid 20s, African American. An accomplished jewel thief who has escaped capture for a long time. Has the ability to manipulate gravity. Sassy, but dangerous. RECURRING GUEST STAR
[CRUCIFER] The leader of the Tenth Circle, Crucifer is a scarred brute who fights Breacher (Danny Trejo). No lines.
[EDWIN] Male, 30s, Open Ethnicity. A hippie-type, Edwin has his life upended when he develops a power that makes him very hard to track.
Barry's return and the subsequent birth of the bus metas were planned by the season's villain, Clifford "The Thinker" DeVoe. With his human body dying, DeVoe resorted to stealing the bodies of other metahumans to keep himself alive to see his mysterious plans through. At the end of this week's episode, DeVoe dumped his consciousness into the body of bus meta Izzy Bowen, who has the power to unleash soundwaves. Each time DeVoe hops into another body, he takes their powers along with him. With only three bus metas left, Team Flash will need to keep them safe before DeVoe can get his hands on their powers and bodies.
Airing Tuesday nights on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Daniele Panabaker, Hartley Sawyer, Danielle Nicolet, Tom Cavanaugh, and Jesse L. Martin.
