Fan reportedly gets autograph from Violett Beane while filming in costume
Salt shakers at the ready: a new rumor suggests that The Flash co-star was seen filming scenes for Season 3 in a full Jesse Quick superhero costume. There is no photographic proof, so the story is based on one person’s word thus far.
Twitter user Canadagraphs posted earlier this month that he or she met Beane while filming and received an autograph, and that she was indeed wearing a Jesse Quick costume:
Got an autograph tonight from #TheFlash star Violett Beane on set.
Spoiler alert…. Jessie Quick was in costume.
Sorry, no pics today.

Even though the tweet in question is almost two weeks old, it seems no one really noticed it until this week. Canadagraphs is a self-described “autograph hound” and is normally a reliable source for set photos/videos in the Vancouver area.
When questioned by other fans to describe the costume, Canadagraphs admitted that he or she doesn’t read the comics, so they were unable to compare Beane’s costume to the original version. They did say that Beane was wearing read pants similar to Grant Gustin’s Flash costume, but couldn’t recall the top, other than to say that it wasn’t blue.
With Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) finally debuting as Kid Flash in the Season 3 premiere, it was only a matter of time before Jesse Wells gained her own speedforce powers and became Jesse Quick. After all, both Wally and Jesse were hit with speedforce energy near the end of last season. The real question is what role the Flashpoint storyline will play in Jesse Quick’s new powers — will she only have them in the alternate reality, or is the new normal for her character?
We’ll find out when The Flash returns on Tuesday, October 4 at 8/7 on The CW.
