Default Re: Keiynan Lonsdale is Wally West

Hmm...Just a thought, but since Barry is known in the comics for sacrificing his life and Wally taking over, I wonder if that could ever happen on the show (perhaps before Barry makes his big screen debut in Fall 2017, since we do know that WB isn't fond of having two versions of the same hero going on at the same time).

As much as I like Gustin's Barry, I think the idea of a show switching lead characters halfway through would be ballsy and keep things fresh.

What if he's a relative from the future? Could that explain it?

I also hope they put him in High School as well.

I hope he isn't from the future since that's Impulses whole storyline.

What about different points? Like have Bart Allen from the 31st Century and Wally could be 20 years from now?

No way

Just make Wally the son of Iris' estranged sibling.

Agreed. I'd love it if Wally became Flash at the end of season 2 or 3

That feels a little forced in if you ask me.

Well, Wally being anything but Barry and Iris' nephew doesn't work for me. It's an unnecessary change.

Pretty sure they won't. Gustin's Barry is quite popular and Barry Allen is Johns' favourite, I doubt that Wally will become the main speedster in the next three to four seasons, if at all. WB will be fine with it as long as the money is right and I don't see why there can't be two Barry Allen around, especially if you consider Multiverse and such, which is an important part of the whole mythos. Fans of the show will probably have little trouble accepting such a thing.

I wouldn't mind Barry to stay "the" Flash for the rest of the series, Gustin is doing a great job with him and there is no reason to kill him off. Wally could grow in a partner roll with time and doesn't always have to stay Kid-Flash, but I don't see why he should have to replace Barry.

There's no way they are going to replace the main character. Absolutely zero chance of it ever happening.

Doesn't even need to be that. Cousins don't have to be that directly involved like a sibling.

Point is I don't want Joe to be that kind of a guy. Black man with multiple children by other women. In most cases that's a bad thing.

I like the cousins idea but I still hope that he may be Joe's son from an parallel earth.

Regarding him being Joe's son from the actual Flash-verse, I don't think it would be really that bad if they go that route, at least in regard of Joe and him staying likable. He is just a human and accidently fathering a child happens even to the nicest guys and we don't know whether Iris mother has even still been around when Wally was conceived as she seems to have been out of the picture for quite a while. I just wouldn't like it if he knew that there was a son of him lurking about and not taking care of him but I doubt they would do it like this.

I'm glad Wally is coming to town! Now how is he going to become Kid flash, will it be a regular lighting strike or something else that'll light up this speedster

The problem is that that's a problematic cliché/stereotype that exists both in pop culture and in society as a whole. And I'd prefer that they not bring it in here AT ALL!

I was thinking, in the comics RF erases Barry's best friend from existence before he kills Barry's mother. What if in the show his best friend was Iris' brother, Wally? Then Wally somehow comes to this timeline. It could be Zoom who erased Wally since he's the Big Bad of the season .

There this theory going around that Zoom is really
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Future Barry Allen Zoom ran down the street that leads to where the Allen's used to live, there's also this arc in the new 52 where Wally dies and Barry goes over the edge traveling back into time to stop Wally's death while also killing off his foes, Future Flash shows no mercy he's just a guy full of vengeance.

So maybe Barry Zoom is from a timeline where RF killed Wally so RF erases Wally from this timeline to prevent that.

But that arc ended like 3 months ago.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
in the trailer Zoom ran down the street that's leads to the Allen's old home, the streaks Zoom makes are similar to the ones Future Flash makes in the comic arc, and I found it interesting they haven't casted someone to play Zoom. Also they said Zoom wants something from The Flash and his motivation is different from Eobard's.

The actor is 23 and looks it. Can they use the Kid Flash moniker for Wally now? They should have went with an actual kid. The young actors and Gotham do a great job with the material they are given. Wasted opportunity.

Wally is Iris' nephew not her brother.

Joe had a kid years ago, but he was a bad seed. He ended up having a boy named Wally, but Iris' bro abandoned the boy when he was young, and Iris' bro hasn't been seen by Joe, Iris, or Wally in years.

Wally is as old as Iris because Joe had Iris' brother so young.

It'd be easier to do Wally if they explained Iris' sibling situation more in s1.

Feels kinda forced, just make Wally her cousin. Less drama that way.
