The Flash: First Images of Keiynan Lonsdale as Kid Flash
OctWhen Wally West was introduced on The Flash last season, there was one moment all comics fans were waiting for: the reveal of Kid Flash. And while that hasn't happened on the show yet, the arrival of Kid Flash is imminent, as The CW has just released the first concept images for Keiynan Lonsdale's costume as the beloved superhero.

This reveal is exciting, not only because the costume is fairly comics-accurate, but because it's the first significant announcement of changes to the show as a result of the Flashpoint altered timeline (unless you count the return of John Wesley Shipp and Tom Cavanagh). Last season, Wally West was affected by the same particle accelerator experiment that gave Barry his Speed Force back, but he didn't seem to develop any powers. Now, Barry is not going to have his powers in the new timeline, and will just be a regular Joe CSI, so does this mean Wally West is the new hero of Central City? It's possible that Central City will be without a hero for a while, and then some kind of inciting incident will give Wally his powers, but it's more likely that this is an immediate change from the new timeline.

The Flash returns for its third season on October 4 at 8pm on The CW.
