CW Kid Flash 1

CW has released two publicity photos of Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West on the Flash TV show) in full costume as Kid Flash!

No word yet on when he’ll gain his speed, whether it’s part of the Flashpoint storyline or something that will happen as the timeline is repaired. (via Flash TV News)

Update: According to Entertainment Weekly he’ll debut as Kid Flash during the season three premiere, “Flashpoint.”

So what do you think? Love the costume? Think it needs work? Are you looking forward to seeing Wally West in super-speed live action? Sound off!

    Now that I’m done geeking out over LIVE-ACTION WALLY WEST IN COSTUME!, it occurs to me…maybe they should find a name other than Kid Flash for a guy who gained his super-speed as an adult.

    In the Flashpoint timeline he could just be The Flash, actually — if Barry isn’t a speedster in that timeline, Wally might be the first.

    Not a fan. With the original Kid Flash and Impulse, it made sense to let their long hair fly free in the wind. But with this Wally’s short hair, his mask looks awkward and unnecessary.

    The only thing that bothers me is the top of the mask. Just looks awkward. But I can’t wait to see Wally in full costume and super speed glory!

    Pretty goofy lookin’ in my opinion.

    Suddenly I realize the Kid Flash costume really was designed for a kid. Every time I see a grown man in that thing (DC Universe: Rebirth #1 included) it just looks goofy as can be.

    Having a total nerdgasm seeing this. 🙂

    LOVE that they have produced Wally West’s Kid Flash costume with minimal tweaks to the comic version.

    Very happy geek here.

    Looks pretty cool! I’ve heard rumours that this is indeed a Flashpoint thing, but honestly I’ve learned not to put a whole lot of stock in them. However, it’d be interesting if the Flashpoint timeline has Wally as a protege to Barry, or is even the prime Flash.
