After the time-bending season two finale cliffhanger, The CW’s The Flash seems to be bolting towards the mayhem of the alternate-universe heavy Flashpoint story arc of the comics.
While this means Barry Allen will most likely grapple with a universe lacking a Superman and gaining an unhinged Thomas Wayne donning the Batman cowl, it appears from The CW’s newly released photos (included below) that Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) will hold down Central City as Kid Flash.
So far, it’s only been confirmed that Kid Flash will appear in season three opener “Flashpoint,” which premieres on Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. EST on The CW. Hopefully, the character won’t be forced to make a speedy exit.
