New Speedster Spotted On The Set Of ‘The Flash’ Season 3

We recently got our first official look at The Flash star Keiynan Lonsdale fully suited up as Kid Flash for the upcoming third season of the series and now the actor has been spotted on set filming alongside Grant Gustin and a mysterious speedster. While there hasn’t been an official announcement, it’s believed that The Vampire Diaries actor Todd Lasance is the man behind the black and orange mask.

You can check out the set snaps below.

So, who could this mysterious speedster be? The character looks an awful lot like the Black Racer, who made his return in the Darkseid War storyline a few months ago. He’s pretty much the Grim Reaper of the DC Comics universe. The Black Racer possesses the ability to bring death with a single touch, so if that’s indeed him, then it’s safe to say that Wally and Barry are in big trouble.

Along with yesterday’s reveal, The CW confirmed that Lonsdale will be suiting up as Kid Flash in the season three premiere (which is titled Flashpoint), so we’re probably going to learn the identity of the new speedster in that episode. The show will return on Tuesday, October 4, at 8/7c on The CW. Are you excited?

  • The Black Racer is who Zoom turned-into in the S2 Season Finale. At least, that’s what he looked-like, almost exactly.

  • Joey Wabi-Sabi

    The suit looks a lot closer to the Daniel West version of Reverse-Flash, rather than the Black Racer.

    • SAMURAI36

      I actually wouldn’t mind that at all.

    Oh joy. Another speedster. (Yawn). How original.
