The CW and DC Entertainment have confirmed that Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West will become Kid Flash on the upcoming third season of the network’s “The Flash” series. In fact, they’ve even gone so far as to release the first official costume photos of Lonsdale in his new outfit.
The third season premiere, titled “Flashpoint,” will be based in part on the popular event story from DC Comics and will deal with the implications of the finale of the second season when Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) saves his mother from death. It’s unclear what sort of changes will blossom as a result of Barry’s actions, but Wally having superpowers will probably be amongst them as Lonsdale is said to be suiting up in the season premiere.
“The Flash” returns to screens on October 4th.
