Clancy Brown and Robert Knepper on The Flash

General Wade Eiling is coming to Central City and he comes in the form of Clancy Brown. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Sleepy Hollow actor has landed a pivotal recurring role on The Flash, playing the head of a black ops army team. The General, who has ties to the Suicide Squad, is described as "a tall and imposing man, with a face carved from years of duty."  Also heading to Central City is William Tockman, also known as The Clock King. TV Line reports that Robert Knepper, who appeared in the episode "Time of Death" in the second season of Arrow, will serve as yet another contender for The Flash-- and he won't be working alone.  "We wanted to give Barry a real challenge... TWO bad guys!" reveals executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, adding that Barry will be "fighting both a new enemy and one of our scariest and most successful Arrow villains in The Clock King." This marks the first villain crossover on Arrow and The Flash. Meanwhile, it doesn't look like life is about to get any easier for Barry Allen. TV Line has also revealed that Tony Woodward, yet another recurring villain known as Girder, will emerge beginning episode 6.
