What’s going on Heroes and Villains? In some casting news, The Flash has found it’s Abra Kadabra. The actor playing the criminal from the future is David Dastmalchian. For those that don’t know about Abra Kadabra, I’ll give you a brief description of the character.
A magician from the 64th Century, Kadabra travels back in time to our present day to become famous, only to find himself continually thwarted by the Flash. While Kadabra is a stage magician and his appearance reflects it, the “magic” he uses to impress today’s audiences and fight the Scarlet Speedster is actually 64th Century tech. He has no actual magical powers, though in one notable storyline, he was temporarily given the gift of sorcery thanks to a deal he made with the Green Lantern villain Neron.
Anyway, I’m interested in seeing Abra Kadabra being brought to the small screen. I was introduced to the character via Young Justice. So I’m excited to see him return to a small screen. Do you think will be seeing more “magic” characters this or next season? I’m still XBen3000 and I’m out!
