First Look At Keiynan Lonsdale As Kid Flash On ‘The Flash’

It looks like the events of The Flash season two finale (titled The Race of His Life) will have a major impact on the upcoming third season. The CW has unveiled our first official look at Keiynan Lonsdale fully suited up as Kid Flash and he looks absolutely awesome.

In the closing moments of The Race of His Life, Barry Allen made the decision to travel back in time to save his mother from being murdered by Eobard Thawne a.k.a. Reverse-Flash, meaning that we’re going to see a lot of changes for some of the main characters of the series. We’re obviously getting a loose adaptation of the Flashpoint comic book series once the show returns this fall, so this could definitely be a Wally West from an alternate timeline, but it’s still cool that we’re finally going to see him in full costume.

The network has also revealed that Lonsdale will make his debut as Kid Flash in the first episode of the highly anticipated third season, which is fittingly titled Flashpoint. The show will return on Tuesday, October 4, at 8/7c on The CW.

    Hopefully this isn’t just for the Flashpoint stuff.

    Cool. Faithful design but it’s funny that most of the costumes in the CW’s Flash have the zipper/leather jacket motif. Even Zoom, on an alternate earth, had a leather jacket/zipper costume design. I guess it’s the multiverse’s answer to spandex.

    • SAMURAI36

      Not sure why that’s such an issue.

    Home run.

  • Ruben C Barron

    I like it, but I wouldn’t mind an alternate similar to his New 52 design.

  • Looks great!

    Let’s hope the writers do a much, much better job than last season. I won’t be revisiting very many Season 2 episodes in the future.

  • Brennan Klensch

    The only thing that ever bothers me with the Flash is that the Masks are never flush-fit to the actors face. I can’t imagine this costs a lot more than an all leather costume already costs.

    • S.W.

      I agree with you. This show has — hands down — some of the best digital effects on TV. But I always groan when The Flash (Zoom or Reverse Flash) put on or take off their masks and the director/editor does the fake-out cutaway to another shot because it’s actually a cumbersome cowl and not a collapsible mask. Though they did finally stop the fakeouts in Season 2 with Zoom and at least showed him pulling off the full cowl. They had one other great non-fakeout shot in Season 2 when Zoom unmasked the Flash for the first time. The CGI effects are not as distracting as the sleight of hand unmaskings. LOL.

      • Brennan Klensch

        Exactly! But. lets not forget, they’ve, to this point, avoided the absolute, “this-has-to-be-fake-or-a-joke,” embarrassment Arrow faced with Diggle’s truly terrible helmet

        • S.W.

          Yep. LOL. Helmetpocalypse.

    • SAMURAI36

      Sorry man, but this just seems like a silly thing to nitpick about. Considering the fact that aside from Batman & Nite-Owl, we’ve yet to see how any face masks would fit in real life, this comics-to-real life transliteration has been pretty good this far.
      There has yet to be any established standard for how you think face masks are supposed to work.
      Moreover, if that’s your biggest complaint, then I’d say they are light years ahead of the curve, especially on a TV budget.

      • Brennan Klensch

        well that’s just it – it is a nitpick. I wasn’t trying to complain about the show on the whole and should’ve made that more clear. I love The Flash! (can’t say the same for the rest though). And all I’m really saying is, if you can figure it out on Batman, you can figure it out on others 😉 Helps that I’ve had some background in this stuff and know it’s possible if you’re willing to spend the time and just a little more money (just a little, truly)

    Looking good.

    Another home run for DCTV.
