Abra Kadabra May Soon Return To The Flash
If you’ve been paying attention, then you probably know of how David Dastmalchian has become one of the more prolific actors in the superhero genre. Already, he’s added The Dark Knight, Gotham, The Flash and Ant-Man and the Wasp to his resume, so it’d be unwise to assume he’s putting it all behind him.
Speaking of which, it’s beginning to sound like we’ll soon see his return to present day Central City, as a reprisal of the Abra Kadabra role may very well be in the cards. Having been absent ever since giving Team Flash headaches in season 3, one could say the time is right for a comeback.
On that note, here’s what Dastmalchian had to say in a recent interview with ComicBook.com:
“You know The Flash is creeping up on their 100th episode soon and I think that Abracadabra should show up and finally teach old Barry a lesson for once. I think he needs to bring the hammer down on him. That’s another show that’s shrouded in secrecy so even if I knew something, I couldn’t tell you something, or I would have to wave my magic wand and make your memory melt and forget about it. So we’ll see, but here’s hoping.”
Whether or not Kadabra shows up for the 100th episode remains to be seen, but the above statement comes at a time when we know filming had been underway, so this may be more than just a coincidence. Either way, I’d welcome a return to be made by this villain because it’d be intriguing to see if he and Nora crossed paths in the future.
Additionally, David couldn’t help geeking out over the upcoming “Elseworlds” crossover, and sounded particularly jazzed about seeing Superman:
“I’m so excited. I am so excited; it’s going to be amazing. I love that you’re going to get Tyler as Superman and my friend Bitsie Tulloch is going to be Lois Lane. The crossover is going to be insane.”
The Flash airs on Tuesday nights on The CW, with the crossover set to begin on Sunday, December 9th.
