    Perfect casting. I'm very excited for this. My favorite speedster is finally here. I hope they let him keep his Aussie accent. Just say he grew up there or something. No sibling mentioned for Iris. I wonder if they'll keep the nephew angle or just make them cousins. I can't wait for West family interaction. Love Joe, love Iris and I already love Wally.

    why do the Kid sidekick characters in these shows always look the same age as the Main hero?

    Because the main heroes are always aged down.

    Nice! All the more reason to have a musical episode. I like this casting.

    I've given Warner Bumbles a lot of heat for wasting most of the DC library over the last 10-12 years. They have been pitifully late with many characters and haphazard with others.

    However, I must give credit where it's due. WBTV has treated the Flash mythos with reverence, as is evidenced by the Flash Dynasty coming to fruition in Season 2 of this superb TV series. Hat tip to everyone involved in the conception of this.

    Are they gonna let him grow out facial hair? I hope not. Wally is supposed to look youthful.

    Really? With Barry not being blond, Iris not white... you're still hoping for things that don't really matter anymore? Let it go! ;)

    Good casting, hopefully they will use the character well.

    Well, yeah, I can hope, I'm allowed to do that, doesn't mean I'll throw a fit if he isn't a red head, I'm ok with it if he isn't.

    exactly, so if the heroes suppose to be still that young, then the sidekick should only be a child

    Hopefully we don't actually see him suit up for at least this season. Hint at it, sure, but I think it's too early to have Wally suit up.

    I'm curious to see what his connection to Iris and Joe are. I mean in the comics he's Iris's nephew. But Iris is much younger on the show and we've gotten ZERO hints that she has any biological siblings. So maybe he'll just be Joe's nephew or something?

    I think Wally will be Iris's brother. They were casting an African-American actress in her 40s to play a troubled friend of Joe’s named Olivia. She could be Wally's mom. Maybe Joe had an affair and Olivia didn't tell him about the kid because I don't see Joe abandoning a child. I also remember the writers saying S1 was more about the Allen family and the focus will be on the West in S2. They already have Garrick coming from alternate place. Wally coming from alternate reality or the future doesn't really bring on drama.

    They are hush hush on what actually happened to Iris's mother and between her parents. Do we even have confirmation her mother died. I know it was implied between conversation Wells and Joe had but did the writers confirm it.

    So yeah, I'm going with a newly discovered brother. Is a TV show, a TV show on CW. Some soap opera drama is unavoidable.

    Yeah, I also think Wally is Iris' brother and it will tie into the secrecy with her mom, who I don't think is really dead, by the way.
