Elongated Man is on his way to Central City it seems.

Hartley Sawyer is set to join The Flash as Ralph Dibny AKA the Elongated Man. The Elongated Man is one of the Flash’s allies — who by day is a fast-talking private investigator and by night costumes up to patrol the streets and fight crime thanks to his ability to stretch his body to any shape or form. Sawyer will appear in a recurring role through Season 4, and will use his abilities to help Team Flash solve one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.

Season 4 is said to have a lighter tone than the dark road that Season 3 ventured down and is also said to be the first season to feature a non-speedster Big Bad in the form of Neil Sandilands as Clifford Devoe, aka the Thinker and Kim Engelbrecht who is set to play the Mechanic, a highly intelligent engineer and the Thinker’s right hand.

The Flash is set to return on October 10th on the CW.
