Here's our first look at the full Flash suit that actor Grant Gustin will be wearing in the upcoming new superhero series on The CW.
Surprise! It looks exactly like The Flash would look. The costume was designed by Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, who also helped create the look of the Green Arrow for the CW series Arrow.
The director of the pilot episode, David Nutter, had this to say in a statement:
“I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash’s iconic suit."
I'm really curious to see how the character looks when he's running at super speeds, and I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. In the series, scientist Barry Allen (Gustin) has a freak accident that gives him the power of super speed and transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. Allen was first introduced on Arrow, but he won’t make his debut as The Flash until the pilot episode of his solo series, which is currently in production.
