The Flash Season 3 Set Photos Reveal More Kid Flash and a New Speedster
We're all looking forward to seeing Keiynan Lonsdale suit up as Kid Flash next season after that big costume reveal yesterday, and it looks like we won't have long to wait. Fans have already caught the actor in his Kid Flash costume on set while shooting the third season in Vancouver (as well as Grant Gustin dancing between takes, as per usual):
But even more intriguing is that there's apparently a new Speedster in town. Further set photos showed Kid Flash with a superhero (villain?) who's wearing an all-black version of the Flash costume:
It's difficult to tell who's under the mask from these pictures, but many fans are already speculating that it could be Tom Felton, who has just been added as a series regular. His character has been described as "a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there's more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation," which doesn't necessarily sound like he's a supervillain, but they could just be keeping it under wraps.
But equally important, which character is it? If it's a comics character, which it likely is, then it could be Black Racer. Black Racer is an avatar of Death in the DC universe, and hunts people who are affiliated with the Speed Force (which would explain why he doesn't seem to be going after Barry). And his costume looks pretty similar to the speedster in the set photos:
The Flash returns for season 3 on October 4 at 8pm on The CW.
