Before this, there was a confusion on who will play Rainbow Raider/Ray Bivolo in the Flash Arrow crossover episode as Comicbook.com received reports that Patrick Sabongui was the one who was cast for the role.
"The actor named for the part in the official write-up is Patrick Sabongui, who plays Captain David Singh in the series. We've reached out to The CW for a clarification, since it seems unlikely that they would cast him as a Rogue or turn the character evil without mentioning it in the text. It's more likely that there was an error in the text," the website wrote.
