I have seen images from the sets of The Flash season 3, showing a man in a black costume. Is there any secured information if this character is supposed to be the Black Flash known from the comics? Will we see three speedsters in season 3?
So far, there have been three speedsters confirmed for season 3.
- Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, the Flash.
- Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, the Kid Flash
- Todd Lasance as The Rival
Lasance's character, wearing a black suit, was previously unidentified, but people were able recognize the actor, who wasn't Teddy Sears (Zoom/Jay Garrick/Hunter Zolomon/Black Flash)
So what of the rumors about The Black Flash?
We will see The Black Flash - we just don't know exactly when yet.
Are we going to see Black Flash on The Flash in season 3? — Peter
Potentially. “Obviously we did that on purpose,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “We love working with Teddy [Sears]. He’s such an amazing actor and amazing person, and was so much a part of the success of this show last season. There aren’t any immediate plans for that, but you can’t keep a good Black Flash down, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing him in the future.”
Yes, the Black Flash has been confirmed and in fact as of now, already has made an appearance on the Flash. Now, for the specific episode, I'll be posting that information under spoiler protection:
Into the Speed Force, Ep. 16 during the time that Barry is being "tested" by the Speed Force so he can rescue Wally.
