Todd Lasance Joins THE FLASH as New Villain The Rival

Todd Lasance joins The Flash as one of the new villains in town!

Vampire Diaries alum, Todd Lasance, will face off against Barry (Grant Gustin) as The Rival. The Rival is a black suited speedster who in DC Comics lore was a rival of Jay Garrick, not Barry Allen. The comics version of the character became insane after spending too much time in the Speed Force and went on a cross-country killing spree.

Barry will also have to face Mirror Master (Grey Damon), Magenta (Joey King), The Top (Ashley Rickards), and yet-to-be-cast Dr. Alchemy, and Savitar, a god-like speedster with a cult following.

The Flash returns for Season 3 on Tuesday, October 4th at 8/7c on The CW.
