Kim Soo Hyun joins Age of Ultron and Patrick Sabongui joins The Flash, but as who?
I don’t know either, Spider-Man. I don’t know either. Well, okay, I know who Sabongui is going to be.
Patrick Sabongui, a veteran character actor who will be appearing in the upcoming Godzilla remake, has been cast as a “potentially recurring role” on the CW’s Arrow spinoff Flash. He’s nabbed the role of Captain David Singh, the director of the Central City crime lab, workplace of CSI tech Barry Allen. In comics, Singh has it out for Allen after being pressured by superiors to hire him against his own judgement. The creators of Arrow sure do like their deep references. Sounds like they’d like to make him recurring if they could.
Sabongui may have been considered for the job because of his past appearances on Arrow as Soldier and Street Dealer in “The Huntress Returns” and “Vertigo,” respectively. He’s also been in two episodes of Almost Human, as Dr. Keating.
But in mystery news, the name Kim Soo Hyun (meaning the actress of that name, not the actor) has been floating around in connection to Age of Ultron since the beginning of the year. Kim has since confirmed through Twitter that she will be appearing in the movie.
After a long wait, I’m so happy to be back with great news. I have a lot to do ahead of me, but for now, the words ‘Welcome to the Marvel Universe’ are amazing and kind of overwhelming. I was a fan of Marvel Comics, and if you really like something it looks like fate can make it happen.
According to a Marvel rep who spoke to Korean entertainment press, Kim’s character is already set in stone, but can’t be revealed just yet, calling it a “substantial supporting role.” Back in January it was rumored that she would be playing either a scientist/doctor parter of Tony Stark, a villain, or both. And, I mean, I’ll say it, so that somebody else doesn’t have to: The Wasp. Come on Marvel.
