We saw the Fastest Man Alive traveling back in time to save his mother from Eobard Thawne in the closing moments of the second season of The Flash, so it’s only fitting that the premiere of season three will be titled “Flashpoint.”
Grant Gustin made the announcement on his personal Twitter page after revealing that he just read the script for the first episode of season three. The star of the CW series wouldn’t reveal the title at first, but he later changed his mind after being given permission by producer Greg Berlanti. You can check out the tweets below.
@grantgust I’m cool with you telling them the title

It’s currently unknown how the events of The Race of His Life will affect the series moving forward. After all, some of the major players of the Flashpoint comic book series such as Thomas Wayne, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, as well as many other popular DC characters aren’t even part of the show and it’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever get to see them in the ever-growing DCTV universe. It’s also going to be interesting to see whether or not there will be any changes on Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
