Despite the fact that he's been appearing in the pages of DC Comics since 1960, and appeared in numerous animated projects such as Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave And The Bold, poor Elongated Man has never had a live-action incarnation before.
But, it sounds as though that's all about to change in Season 4 of The Flash.
The Hashtag Show has revealed that Ralph Dibny, the Elongated Man, is one of the new characters set to make his DC TV debut this Fall on The Flash. Check out the character description below...
[RALPH DIBNY AKA ELONGATED MAN] Male, Mid to late 30s, Open Ethnicity. Think Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt, Ralph has the ability to stretch his body to super-human lengths and sizes…however, while resculpting his old body is easy to do, Dibny finds losing the old misguided sense of truth and slobbery, even after joining the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, is a far more difficult task to accomplish. MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR WITH A SERIES REGULAR OPTION FOR NEXT SEASON
What's interesting is that the character will serve as a major recurring guest star this year with an option for a series regular upgrade come Season 5.
Character descriptions have also been made available for The Thinker, the rumored big bad for Season 4, who was hinted at numerous times during Barry Allen's escapades last year, and The Mechanic...
[CLIFFORD DEVOE AKA THE THINKER]–Male, 40s-50, Open Ethnicity. After being struck with dark matter from the particle accelerator explosion, Clifford Devoe became a meta-human with a mega-mind. A Stephen Hawking-esque genius who’s devised an intricate plan to fix all that he deems wrong with humanity. “The Thinker” will embark upon a season long battle with The Flash that pins the “fastest man alive” against the “fastest mind alive.” FRACTIONAL (7/13) ONE SEASON SERIES REGULAR
[THE MECHANIC]–Female, 30s-40, Diverse. A highly intelligent engineer who designs and assembles a plethora of devices for the ailing Clifford Devoe. Devoe’s right hand, she’s the truest of true-believers who’ll stop at nothing to implement his plan to fix all that’s wrong with humanity-even if she loses who she is in the process.
