Emily Kinney may follow fellow The Walking Dead veteran Audrey Marie Anderson to The CW's DC Universe.

According to news and rumor site Vixen Varsity, Kinney is headed to Vancouver to appear on The Flash, where she'll play The Atom villain the Bug-Eyed Bandit in the forthcoming episode "All-Star Team Up."

She's been in Canada, according to various Instagram and Twitter posts, since February 5 or so.

The episode will feature guest appearances by Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), who head to Central City to get S.T.A.R. Labs' help working on Ray's A.T.O.M. Exosuit.

Vixen Varsity also notes that The Flash series lead Grant Gustin recently started following Kinney on Twitter; while hardly definitive, it's a compelling piece of information when lumped in with everything else.

There's been nothing official from Kinney's social media accounts, and as of press time, The CW hasn't responded to an inquiry from
