It's been a few months since we first found out that Keiynan Lonsdale will be portraying Wally West in season two of CW's "The Flash." When we first heard this exciting news, it was unclear whether or not we would see Wally before or after he acquired his powers, but thanks to Comicbook.com and Candice Patton, we may have our answer:
"Wally is coming. Keiynan Londsale who's been cast to play him is a great Australian actor. We're really excited to have him. He's not there yet so we don't know much about what kind of role Wally will take in season 2, but I'm sure it'll be good. We'll end up having three Flashes on one season, which is really amazing, if you think about it. Jay, Barry, and Wally West."
Wally West, better known as Kid Flash (who would later become the primary flash after the death of Barry Allen) is the nephew of Barry Allen's love interest, Iris West. He is a founding member of the Teen Titans and a sidekick to Barry Allen. Wally also had a very notable superhero career of his own, both as Kid Flash, and The Flash.
With a third speedster joining Team Flash, its clear that this show is going to take it to a whole new level. Season one showed us that the writers of the Flash take their work very seriously, and I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us in season two!
