The first filming pics from the Vancouver set of The Flash have emerged, revealing that there will be a mysterious new speedster in Central City. And we also know who the man behind the mask is.

Spartacus and Vampire Diaries star Todd Lasance has been spotted on set filming alongside Keiynan Lonsdale, who was suited up as Kid Flash, and Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. The actor was seen without his mask by keen-eyed viewers and identified, although The CW hasn’t officially confirmed the casting yet. I’m pretty sure it won’t be long, though.

I don't know about you guys, but this new speedster looks an awful lot like Black Racer from DC Comics' Justice League: Darkseid War. The Black Racer was the embodiment of Death who would hunt down those who possessed the Speed Force. If that is indeed Black Racer, is he there to hunt either Wally or Barry?

Now the question is: Will this new speedster be the main villain for the whole of Season 3, or will his stint be limited to the show's Flashpoint storyline (we're not sure how long this arc will last) that created an alternate universe when Barry went back in time to save his mother Nora at the end of the Season 2 finale? That remains to be seen. Check out the images below, and let us know what you guys think.
