David Dastmalchian Joins CW’s The Flash as DC Villain Abra Kadabra

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This season of the CW hit show The Flash has been introducing a few interesting characters from the Earth-19 wacky version of Harrison Wells to Harry Potter star Tom Felton’s Julian Albert AKA Dr. Alchemy, but that isn’t going to stop them from expanding the arrowverse. It has been reported that DC villain Abra Kadabra is making his way to Central City to mess with Team Flash and will be portrayed by Ant-Man star David Dastmalchian.

Abra Kadabra is described as “a criminal from a distant future whose advanced technological powers seem like magic, the time-traveling Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian) holds a secret the Flash will stop at nothing to uncover.” Created by John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino, the time-traveling character was first introduced into the DC universe all the way back in 1962 in The Flash #128. Abra Kadabra came all the way from the 64th century, a time where science has effective debunked stage magic. His desire to become a famous magician pushes him to make the travel back to the 21st century but his plan was ultimately foiled by the scarlet speedster.

The synopsis for the upcoming episode reads:

[su_quote]The Flash (Grant Gustin) battles Abra Kadabra (guest star David Dastmalchian), a villain from Earth-19, who makes him a tempting offer – release him and Abra Kadara will reveal Savitar’s true identity. Desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton), Barry considers taking the deal but Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) breaches in to capture the villain for her own reasons and during the melee, Abra Kadabra manages to escape. Barry is furious that Gypsy interfered but Gypsy refuses to back down, forcing Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to take sides. Meanwhile, Julian (Tom Felton) is still a bit cold towards Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) but when she is severely injured in a battle with Gypsy, he rushes to her side. [/su_quote]

Abra Kadabra will make his arrowverse debut on March 28, 2017, a week after their highly anticipated musical crossover with Supergirl.
