A Melanin Increase in the ‘Arrow’/’The Flash’ Universe

Keiynan Lonsdale - The Flash

It looks like the producers of The CW DC universe is upping its melanin count. Earlier it was announced that Echo Kellum has been cast as Mr. Terrific in Arrow. The Arrow version is Curtis Holt, a tech inventor at Palmer Technologies, who also happens to be gay.

The West family in The Flash will also get an addition in the form of Wally West, known in the comics as Kid Flash.¬†Keiynan Lonsdale will be donning the role. He will enter The Flash as a series regular. It will be interesting to see what his connection to the West family will be since he was Iris’s nephew in the comics. Maybe he’ll be Joe West’s nephew or his estranged son. I guess we’ll see.

Season Two of Arrow premieres October 7 at 8/7c on The CW.
