The Flash Enlists Walking Dead Alum Emily Kinney as Atom Foe/Anti-Felicity

The Flash Emily Kinney

The Flash is putting a gender twist on DC Comics’ Bug-Eyed Bandit.

The Walking Dead alumna Emily Kinney has been cast as the typically male nemesis of The Atom, TVLine has confirmed.

Kinney will appear in Episode 18, “All-Star Team-Up,” as Brie Larvan — fka Bertram in comics lore — when Arrow‘s Ray Palmer and Felicity visit Central City for help with his A.T.O.M. exosuit.

Brie is described as 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.

As TVLine previously reported, Kinney will also guest-star on an upcoming episode of ABC’s Forever.

    I love these Flarrow crossovers, they are awesome.

  2. wrstlgirl says:

    Great news.

  3. Can’t Wait. Love these Crossovers.

  4. Meg says:

    Yass! Hacker battle sounds awesome! I wonder if this is a tie in to the Flash Zero comic Smoak Signals in which Felicity has a nemesis.

  5. Kate says:

    SO EXCITED!!! I love her! and she’s going up against Felicity? Sounds like it’s going to be amazing.

  6. FatherOctavian says:

    If they go forward with the “Atom” spinoff, I hope they make her a regular. She’s too talented not to have a show.

  7. Trish says:

    I’m confused, maybe you can clarify? She’s either Felicity’s nemesis or Atom’s nemesis. Which is it? You’ve just basically called her a nemesis for both. *sighs*

  8. luli says:

    So glad she is getting new roles post walking dead…. I’m really going to miss her as beth.

  9. A says:

    I’m kind of confused as to why Felicity’s nemesis is going to be on The Flash and not on Arrow…

  10. wild_child says:

    Just as long as she’s not singing. Please no more singing from this woman…

  11. Joey Padron says:

    Happy she’s doing another guest star appearance on TV. It was good to see her in new episode of The Walking Dead.

  12. John says:

    “… as the typically male nemesis…” Male nemesis?

    • Isobel says:

      yes men can be someone’s nemesis….

    • Websnap says:

      “… as the typically male nemesis…” Male nemesis?

      Yes, typically, the Bug-eyed Bandit is a Male and he is the normal the nemesis of the Atom. In every other iteration he has been male so typically he is a male nemesis. Not that the Nemesis is a “typical male”.

    Why isnt anyone keepig up with mission surrey chilliwack maple ridge and all those other places for filming

  14. uk-usa-tvaddict says:

    Female Villains & Anti-Heros!!

  15. calatkinson says:

    Maybe she somehow gets Felicity killed? :D
    Instant new favourite character if that happened.

  16. Jill says:

    I love the Flarrow cross-overs too but this is proof that there are too many superheroes on Arrow if Felicity has to come over to the Flash to get one of her own.

  17. Spence says:

    Will definitely watch for Emily!

  18. Claire says:

    Fantastic! Felicity gets a nemesis, although I hope to see The Clock King return as well — loved Robert Knepper. I love that Felicity will take her on and am really looking fwd to seeing this play out.
    While this is great and I am looking fwd to it, I have to ask—why are we seeing more of Felicity’s development taking place on a show outside of Arrow? Don’t get me wrong, I like that they’re doing this, but I guess it would be less glaring if Felicity received just as much development on the Flash as she does on Arrow. Still looking forward to this though! … Just odd …

    • Claire says:

      That came out wrong. ===> “less glaring if Felicity received just as much development on the ARROW, as she does on the Flash.” Better. :)

  19. nikki says:

    When is Laurel crossing over to The Flash? Her mom lives in Central City. There is a reason for her to be in that city.

  20. holly says:

    felicity in central city…hurray!!

  21. EM says:

    2 Emily’s are better than 1. So freaking excited, Flarrow!

  22. Mark says:

    With her being both there nemesis does this open the door for her to appear on Arrow as well? Or am I reading this wrong….

  23. jhopq says:

    oooh, it’s Emily vs Emily

  24. dana says:

    I can’t wait to see Emily kinny on here.!!

  25. saffron says:

    The writers know how to make us excited!
