KATEE SACKHOFF JOINS THE FLASH SEASON 4 AS BLACKSMITH
Nearly a decade after her Battlestar Galactica run as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, Katee Sackhoff is finally joining a live-action comic book adaptation. Sackhoff has been cast as Amunet Black a.k.a. Blacksmith in The Flash season 4, and she won’t be just a one-off villain.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Sackhoff’s character will be a recurring nemesis this season, and she will retain most of her role from The Flash comic book series. As envisioned by Geoff Johns and Ethan van Sciver, Blacksmith was the leader of an underground black market for supervillains whose ambitions expanded far beyond her original empire. Blacksmith even took over the Rogues as their new leader. It’s not clear if Blacksmith will be a metahuman on the series, but in the comics, she had the power of mechanokinesis. That meant that she possessed the ability to fuse organic and inorganic matter together.
