Squee Warning: Fandom Collision in Progress

Today The Flash announced that Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame will be joining the series as a cast regular.  Now we get to wonder – good guy or bad guy?

Honestly, one of the most awesome things about the DC TV universe is that they seem to revel in cross-fandom friendly casting. Wonder Woman Linda Carter is joining Supergirl to play the President of the United States.  Between Arrow and Legends there are four different members of the Doctor Who cast playing regular or recurring roles.  Heck Arthur Darvill even plays a “Time Master.”

They also don’t shy away from fun winks and nudges to the origins of the actors, especially on The Flash.  When Star Wars’s Mark Hamill played a villain he got to evilly cackle the famous, “I Am Your Father” line.  And the first time Superman Brandon Routh’s character Ray Palmer was introduced it was with the classic “Is that a bird? Is that a plane?”

Yes I’m a nerd.  And it’s so so awesome.
