The Flash Season 3: Joey King Cast As Magenta


Season 3 of “The Flash” has yet to premiere, but the deck is already stacked against Barry Allen.

It was announced yesterday that Ashley Rickards has signed on to play the Top, and it was also recently announced that Mirror Master, Dr. Alchemy and Savitar will all be villains in season 3. As if that wasn’t enough already, it’s now being reported that another villain has entered the mix.

According to, “Fargo” star Joey King will guest star as Magenta when “The Flash” returns in October.

King is set to appear as Magenta in the third episode of the new season. Given that we know the “Flashpoint” universe will be the focus for the first few episodes, it’s probably safe to say she will be a part of the new timeline Barry has created.

Magenta was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez and she made her first appearance in New Teen Titans and she has the ability to manipulate metal.

“The Flash” will return for season 3 on Tuesday, October 4th.

After successfully closing the Singularity from destroying Central City, Barry thinks he’s seen the worst… but the arrival of Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) reveals that the Singularity actually opened portals to an alternate Earth, known as Earth-2, which is being terrorized by a formidable evil speedster named Zoom. As Zoom sends an army of Earth-Two meta-humans to Earth-1 to defeat Barry, he receives unexpected assistance from the Earth-Two doppelganger of his former mentor, Harrison Wells. Meanwhile, Cisco discovers that he, too, was affected by the dark matter of the Particle Accelerator and must come to terms with his newfound powers. As Barry struggles to juggle life as a hero, he opens his heart to Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten), a spunky detective paired with Joe West, but realizes just how hard it is to find happiness when the lives of everyone you love are at stake. He finds some solace in the companionship of his father, Henry Allen, who was freed from a wrongful life sentence… but when Zoom kills Henry before Barry’s eyes, Barry’s newfound stability is shattered.

Blinded by anger, Barry unwittingly plays into Zoom’s game and uncovers the evil speedster’s true goal: to destroy all Earths in the multiverse. In the race of his life, Barry ultimately gets the upper hand against Zoom and defeats his nemesis. But unable to celebrate victory, Barry makes a world-shaking decision and speeds back in time to the night his mother died to stop Reverse Flash from killing her, irrevocably changing his past and redetermining his future.
