The Elongated Man is coming to The Flash!

The CW and DC Entertainment have announced that Hartley Sawyer (Caper, The Young and the Restless, The Blade Runner Holiday Special, I Am Not Infected , Saving the Human Race, Miss 2059) will appear as Ralph Dibny, aka The Elongated Man.
Elongated Man was created by writer John Broome and penciler Carmine Infantino, with significant input from editor Julius Schwartz; he made his first appearance on May 12th 1960 in The Flash vol. 1, #112.

Ralph Dibny played a central role in the events of Identity Crisis, with the main storyline revolving around the DC Universe’s response to the murder of his wife Sue Dibny.

The healthy, stable relationship between Ralph and Sue, and the events that led to and resulted from her death, were used as primary narrative devices throughout the series for examining the respective personal relationships of other JLA and JSA members (and to a lesser extent, members of the supervillain community).

The effect of Sue’s death on Ralph (compounded by the fact that Sue was apparently pregnant at the time of her death) would come to shape his character significantly in the events following Identity Crisis.
