Joey King, known for Fargo and Independence Day: Resurgence, will be joining the cast of The Flash as Frances “Frankie” Kane. This metal human has power similar to that of Magneto’s where she can control metal. The only downside is that said use of powers sets her villainous side, aka Magenta, lose to cause all sorts of damage to the residents of Central City.
It’s interesting to note that this character played a love interest for Wally West in the comics. They met at a young age, became friends, and acted as a power couple before breaking up. It’s unclear whether they will write this into her story.
The villain is set to appear in the third episode of season three with no news on whether she will be part of the Flashpoint storyline or surpass it. After all, she’s a feature film actress appearing on the small screen. We can only assume that she’s being written into a bigger storyline involving the Rogues.
With the continued casting announcements (Weather Witch, Mirror-Man, The Top) there’s no doubt that a new set of Rogues is emerging before our eyes.
