The Flash Season 3 Photos Tease Reverse-Flash's Return, Barry and Wally in Costume
Yet another speedster villain is coming to The Flash season three—but it's not a new one. In addition to the return of old hat villains Gorilla Grodd and Captain Cold, Matt Letscher's Reverse-Flash will be making an appearance as part of the Flashpoint storyline.

In these photos from the season premiere, Eobard Thawne is seen behind bars, which is in keeping with the Flashpoint timeline, since Barry saved his mother from being murdered by Reverse-Flash. Further photos from the premiere confirm other plot points, some of which we saw in the trailer, most notably the return of Nora and Henry Allen, who are alive as a result of Barry's time meddling.

But the strangest part of these photos is seeing Barry and Wally suited up at the same time. When Wally put on his Kid Flash costume, we just assumed that he would be taking over for Barry in the new Flashpoint timeline, especially since Grant Gustin was wearing civvies in those set photos with the speedster villain we now know to be The Rival. Perhaps Barry hasn't given up being The Flash in this new timeline at all, although we know that he'll start to forget his powers eventually.
