According to various outlets, Lasance will come on board the beloved series as The Rival, a character from the DC Comics universe who is a self-made, black-suited speedster.

Look for him to make his debut on The Flash Season 3 premiere, which is set to sprint away on Tuesday, October 4 at 8/7c.

Aside from The Vampire Diaries, Lasance’s television fumes includes Spartacus: War of the Damned and Home and Away.

The Rival is simply the latest addition of foes who will go up against Barry and company this fall.

We previously reported on Grey Damon stopping by the series as Mirror Master, while Dr. Alchemy has not yet been cast.

The Flash will run up against Savitar, it was confirmed earlier this month at the Television Critics Association press tour.

The CW has released a new trailer that actually gives us our first glimpse of Savitar, another speedster with powers that transcend Barry’s and, therefore, elicit a cult following.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.

Barry

Barry: I love you, Iris.
Iris: Oh. I love you, too.
Barry: When we were kids I loved you before I even know what the word love meant and then my mom died and I had to go live with the girl I had a crush on. Look. There were so many times I wanted to tell you; Jr. Prom, when I went away to college, when I came back from college, nights that we stayed up talking, all the birthdays, all the Christmases, but I, I never did. I kept it in. After I lost my mom and my dad, I was afraid that if you didn't feel the same way, I would lose you, too. That's the irony. I was so scared of losing you that I did. I know I've had our whole lives to tell you this and you're with Eddie now and I know that and I know my timing couldn't be any worse, but I just... I couldn't lie to you anymore. I'm sorry.
