Kinney will be playing the adversarial role Brie Larvan; Kinney’s role is based on the male DC Comics villain originally named Bertram Larvan, a.k.a. the Bug-Eyed Bandit.
And Kinney’s arrival just in the knick of time too by all Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg’s estimations:
When you reach what’s going on in ‘The Flash’ at that point in the season, Barry is really at a crossroads. Having Felicity come by exactly when he needs her really plays into the whole storyline… [And] Ray Palmer is all about technology and STAR Labs is all about technology. We get to see Ray so happy to be in STAR Labs… With Cisco [Carlos Valdes] and Ray, they’re new best friends. The STAR Labs team is going to help Ray further his ATOM project.
