For fans of the DC universe on The CW, there is an announcement that solves a lot of issues that people had with feeling that Kid Flash was being wasted on The Flash.
In the aftermath of losing Firestorm earlier this season, it’s been announced that Kid Flash actor Keiynan Lonsdale will be joining the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news that the actor would be taking his Wally West character to the corridors of the Waverider. Executive producer Phil Klemmer commented on the casting decision by saying;
“We loved working with Keiynan in our series premiere — the episode in which we learned that in between seasons 2 and 3 he had been fighting crime in Central City with Nick Zano’s Nate Heywood. So when his character stepped away from Flash to go on walkabout, after being dumped and feeling somewhat estranged from his family and team, we knew that Wally West would fit in perfectly on Legends, After all, our show is about a collection of unlikely heroes who all began their journeys questioning who they are and where they belong — only to find those answers while traveling through time and having wacky adventures. So now, Wally West is not only back in the company of old friends from the Arrowverse, he’s fighting alongside a former enemy and career arsonist Mick Rory/Dom Purcell. By the end of this season, Wally will learn that the Legends have a different definition of what it means to be a hero.”
Legends of Tomorrow returns February 12th on the CW.
