The Flash is adding a few new bad guys to its roster for season three. One of them will be played as Todd Lasance, best known for his role on The Vampire Diaries. He will be switching CW shows to play The Rival on The Flash, according to TVLine.
In the DC Universe, The Rival is a self-made man who is seen sporting a black version of Flash’s suit. He first appeared in Flash Comics #104 and his real name is Dr. Edward Clariss.
The Flash will also be adding Savitar, who makes an appearance in a recently released promo for the third season. In the Flash comics, he was a cult leader obsessed with speed. His name comes from the Hindu god of motion.
Another bad guy joining next season is Dr. Alchemy, who is voiced by Tobin Bell, perhaps best known as Jigsaw in the Saw film franchise. This is the first time that the series has had more than one major villain on the show simultaneously.
See how Barry juggles all these villains when The Flash returns Tuesday, Oct. 4 and check out the first promo for season three below.
