Season 4 of The Flash Teases Changes For Wally West

Set photos have surfaced today of Keiyan Lonsdale’s Wally West will have a major costume change this upcoming fourth season of CW’s The Flash.

As you can see from the photos above, Wally West has been seeing wearing the iconic superhero suit previous worn by Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).

Screenrant reminds viewers of the show why Wally would be wearing the suit rather than Barry.

[SPOILERS FROM SEASON 3 FINALE BELOW]

At the end of season 3, Central City was rocked by an earthquake and a multi-colored lightning storm. Barry instantly realized that it was due to an imbalance in the Speed Force, seeing as Jay Garrick was freed from its prison but no speedster took his place. A peaceful Barry willingly goes into the Speed Force, viewing it as penance for causing a mess with Flashpoint.

When season 4 begins, six months will have passed and Barry is still in the Speed Force, so the city is under the protection of speedster Wally West.

These set photos come contrary to Lonsdale’s own comments that he will not become the next Flash after Barry’s departure to the Speed Force. Screenrant speculates that “Wally is wearing The Flash costume to honor Barry’s legacy and/or to make sure evildoers know that The Flash hasn’t left the city unprotected.”

Season 4 of CW’s The Flash is currently in production.
