Yet another DC character is coming to Season 1 of “The Flash.” Recurring “Sleepy Hollow” star Clancy Brown will play General Wade Eiling, also known in comics as The General, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The General will first appear in episode 5 of the series as head of a black ops military group chasing Plastique, intending to use her as a weapon. Eiling’s primary goal is protecting American interests, though he may also be connected to a main character on the show.
The General first appeared in comics in 1987. He has also played a role in the animated series “Justice League Unlimited,” where he is voiced by J.K. Simmons.
