In light of AMC'S [The Walking Dead](series:201193) losing yet another one of it's beloved characters, The Flash has revealed today that they cast a fallen TWD star in an upcoming episode!

Emily Kinney, known for her outstanding role as Beth in The Walking Dead (RIP) has been cast as the 'Bug-Eyed Bandit' in CW's The Flash!

Don't worry, they're gender-swapping the character obviously; so you won't have to see Emily Kinney sporting a "cliche villain" goatee. The character, named Brie Larvan, will be featured in [The Flash](series:1068303), no doubt to cause him all kinds of trouble!

Bug-Eyed Bandit has the ability to control insects, but it hasn't been revealed how this will be shown in the show. Another thing to note is that Bug-Eyed is a villain of Ray Palmer a.k.a [The Atom](series:2584045)! Shedding some more light on the possibility of an Atom spin-off show!

Honestly, the Bug-Eyed Bandit is a pretty cool villain! But I just can't help but feel that the inclusion of this lesser-known villain that happens to control insects is a big stab at Marvel's upcoming [Ant-Man](movie:9048) film. But that's just me.

The CW hasn't revealed which episode Kinney will appear in, but with The Atom set to appear in episode 18, "All-Star Team-Up," it's possible we'll see her show up then.

But even though we don't know when she'll show up, the CW was kind enough to give out a little info about the character:

"Brie is a narcissistic tech wizard wreaking havoc in Central City. Upon arriving in town, Felicity recognizes Brie as her nemesis, and the two women engage in a hacker battle for The Flash’s life."

So are you excited to see Emily Kinney show up in The Flash?
