Kid Flash is coming to The Flash!
DC Comics unveiled a first look Keiynan Lonsdale as Kid Flash, Wally West’s heroic alter ego, which features the classic yellow suit. This new reveal hints that we’ll be seeing Kid Flash on The Flash‘s upcoming third season.
In The Flash‘s season 2 finale, Barry Allen made the decision to travel back in time and save his mother from dying at the hands of Reverse Flash. The decision effectively changed history as we know it. To what extent we don’t know.
But in the months following we received confirmation that the show would be moving forward with Flashpoint, a popular comic storyline where Barry finds himself stuck in an alternate timeline. Perhaps Flashpoint is the reason we’ll see Kid Flash so quickly. Back in the timeline we know, Wally West was just Joe West’s son and Iris West’s brother. But all of that is about to change.
The Flash season 3 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8/7c on The CW.
