All eyes might be on the big four-show crossover coming later this season, but next week will also bring a stealth Arrow/Flash crossover — complete with the introduction of Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff as a recent DC Comics baddie.
The first pics from the Flash episode “Girls Night Out” have dropped, showing off our first look at Sackhoff as the character Amunet Black, aka Blacksmith. The character, a professional thief, was first introduced in 2001 as a minor Flash baddie. The television version will follow a similar path, with Sackhoff seemingly taking on the role of the mysterious person who had been pulling Caitlin’s strings during the offseason. A mysterious group has been trying to pull her back into some shady operation, and that looks to be Sackhoff’s organization.
Sackhoff’s costume is all black, leather and belts — and for the most part — it pretty much works. She’s a great actress who has shown up in more than a few genre projects over the years, and she looks to be a devilishly fun addition to the Arrowverse.
The episode itself will air on Tuesday, and focuses on Barry and Iris’ bachelor and bachelorette parties. The Arrow crossover comes via the appearance of Felicity, who apparently shows up to hang and support Iris’ in her revelry.
