From The Walking Dead to the latest villain on The Flash, Emily Kinney will play a female version of The Bug-Eyed Bandit, TVLine has confirmed, in the upcoming 18th episode, “All-Star Team-Up.” This is an interesting bit of casting as the role is being gender-bent from a villainous male to a female hacker. Well known as one of The Atom’s foes, Kinney’s Brie Larvan (Bertram Larvan in the comics) will debut when Arrow‘s Ray Palmer and Felicity visit Central City for help with his A.T.O.M. exosuit.
Described as the “anti-Felicity,” Brie is a “narcissistic tech wizard” causing chaos in Central City. Felicity is able to recognize Brie as her enemy and the two engage in a hacker battle.
