Battlestar Galactica hero Katee Sackhoff is joining the roster of The Flash season 4 super villains. According to an official announcement by the makers of the show as well as her own Twitter account, Sackhoff is going to be a major part of the upcoming season.
Fans were speculating what her role will be but there isn’t any need for speculations anymore. It has been confirmed that Sackhoff is playing Amunet Black, a.k.a. Blacksmith. She is a popular character in the comic books who runs an underground black market in both Central City and Keystone City.
After separating from her husband and one of the vilest supervillains, Goldface, she stole his golden elixir which gave her the power to fuse a suit of metal onto her body as well as fuse organic and inorganic matter. Her powers are similar to Cyborg, a character we will be seeing in the Justice League film.
Blacksmith is a partner in crime of The Thinker, the main villain this season of The Flash. Blacksmith will appear in the fifth episode of the season. She is going to be a part of the mini crossover episode with Arrow. So far, only Felicity Smoke has been confirmed to appear in the episode, no news regarding Arrow himself or other members of his team.
The Flash season 4 is turning out to be exciting in terms of crossovers. The main Arrowverse crossover episodes include Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl taking on a “greater” threat in a 4 part series.
