Doug Jones’ Deathbolt to Menace The Flash

We learned last month that Doug Jones is heading to Starling City. The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Hellboy franchise star is set to play the supervillain Deathbolt in “Broken Arrow,” the 19th episode of “Arrow’s” third season. This weekend, Jones took to Twitter to reveal that just one DC Comics series won’t be enough to contain his villainy. Deathbolt will return in “The Flash” episode 3.19, “Rogue Air”! Check out Jones’ original tweet below.

Created by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway in All-Star Squadron #21 (May, 1983), Simmons had the ability to control lightning and electricity and was dubbed “the living battery.” In “Arrow,” his character will instead wield the power of controlling plasma energy. This makes him the first meta-human to make his debut on “Arrow” as opposed to the more super power-friendly “The Flash.”

Both shows air on The CW at 8:00pm ET/PT. “Arrow’s” “Broken Arrow” will debut on April 15 with “The Flash’s” “Rogue Air” following on April 21.
