Keiynan Lonsdale’s Kid Flash has joined Legends of Tomorrow…

January 22nd, 2018 by Marc Comments

As we reported a while back, it looks like The Waverider has gained another crew member… Kid Flash.

Fans of Legends of Tomorrow will know that just before the mid-season break the Legends lost Firestorm AKA Stein and Jax (Franz Drameh and Victor Garber), leaving them two members less and now they have replaced one of them with The Flash’s Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West AKA Kid Flash.

The actor will not be seen again on The Flash (well, for now) and will instead pop up in Legends Episode 11 (Feb 19th) and will become a proper member of the crew in Episode 13.

Legends executive producer Phil Klemmer had this to say: “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.”

While it’s going to be fun having a speedster on Legends, it should be interesting to see if the other seat on the Waverider will be filled… our bet is Killer Frost, though we really want it to be John Constantine.

Hey, a Nerd can dream, can’t he?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
