Full Costume Revealed in New Image from The CW’s THE FLASH

Just over a week ago, The CW unveiled the first image of Grant Gustin in costume for its The Flash TV series pilot.  It was a constrained look as we only saw Gustin’s face, but fans were simply happy to get a preview of what the character will look like in the anticipated superhero show.  However, the network has decided that fans don’t have to wait long to see the full costume, as The CW today released a full-body image of Gustin as the DC Comics character.  The costume was created by Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland), who is also responsible for the principal costume in The CW’s Arrow.  Production is currently underway on The Flash pilot, so we should hear word regarding a series pickup (or a pass) by May as The CW puts together its Fall 2014/15 schedule.

Hit the jump to check out the new image.  The cast for The Flash also includes Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order), Tom Cavanagh (Ed), Danielle Panabaker (Shark), Rick Cosnett (The Vampire Diaries), Candice Patton (The Game), and Carlos Valdes.

Here’s the logline for The Flash:

Through a freak accident, scientist Barry Allen is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive, in THE FLASH.

    Looks like Ben Affleck’s Daredevil.

    • LEM

      re-purposed.

  • http://mattedscreen.blogspot.com/ TheMattedScreen

    Yup – this is pretty much confirming what I’ve believed for awhile now – THIS is the kind of creative team we need building the DC Cinematic World – if there is to be a Justice League – they need to pull in these established characters

  • Bona

    Is Zack Snyder the Director? Costume looks like it’s from Man Of Steel

    • brNdon

      Why? Because it has texture?

  • szadkowski

    The costume is really fan-boyish. Which makes sense because the CW’s Barry Allen had a hard-on for the Arrow and he’d want to do something “flashy”. The bright red chest crest feels a little odd. I wish it was integrated into the costume a little more. It makes it feel more like a costume than a suit. And what’s with the Napoleon Dynamite boots?

    costume looks fine. i think it’s just a really terrible angle and the dude looks like a dork in it

    • Jonboy

      heh…I was just gonna comment that he looks kinda dorky… big head under that mask.. his position is also a bit weird.. I think he’s just launching himself from start position.. but it looks more like he’s just fallen from ice skating… They should have him running…

  • Todd

    Ah, I always wondered what a twink would look like in a professionally designed superhero costume. I guess we have our answer.

    • Warriorscribe

      You wonder that?

      How often? lol.

  • gar216

    The flash costume has not of the same difficulties of Captain America. If you stay true to form, it looks ridiculous, and if you try to modernize it, it just never looks like its supposed to. I will say that I’d prefer a brighter red.

  • PB_2014

    At the end of the day the story is going to be poor. But the suit is pretty nifty. The thing I cannot see past (in foresight) is that the CW is doing it. THEY USE EVERY CINEMATIC CLICHE IN ALL THEIR STORIES. It makes for good background noise when I’m working on stuff though.

  • God’s Diamond

    Personally i like the s lightning bolt better, but overall the suit is cool in this pic imo. Hope john Wesley shipp gets a cameo role in this. And I hope the suit is brighter. I didn’t like the muted blue of the man if steel suit and I hope the flash suit is a little more vibrant

  • Unique Jenique

    Am I the only one who loves the suit?! :D

  • Jack le Critic

    Is that it? :s

  • Cosmourge of Collider

    Fuck Nolan. He’s respectably pioneered the overhauling of the modern onscreen superhero – not least of all the new superhero aesthetic – for far too long!

    Impulse gets me sprung hard…yaaaargh….

  • herpderp

    The suit is fine. Anyone who think its “nolanized” or like man of steel need to have a reality check and look at all of the failed 90s comic book adaptations that went for the straight up colorful costumes. It looked like shit.

    The only thing that will either make or break the series for me is how they treat his super speed. Will it be some shitty smallville like blur? fuck that

  • Colin Christian

    So, is he going to run in the show? If I remember rightly in the books Green Arrow shoots a lot with his bow,buddies,family gossip,who’s dating who and what’s his best friends sisters cousin was up to was on the back burner while he was SHOOTING ARROWS. I’ve not seen that much arrow type shooting in that show so I’m presuming The Flash wil be….? I dunno,drinking Starbucks extra fast? Running hard for a taxi? Preventing his cousins best friend from dating the wrong guy? Excited.

      You probably haven’t seen the show much this season, have you? It’s true the show was guilty of that early on, and it still has its “soap opera” moments now, but there’s A LOT less of that now and it’s getting more and more “comic book-y” (I mean that in a good way) each week.

      Last week’s episode with Ollie learning Slade is still alive was fan-freakin’-tastic. The show’s given us Deathstroke, Ra’s Al-Ghul is coming, and next week’s features the beginnings of the Suicide Squad.

      Seriously, Arrow’s gotten really good. It’s a shame more people are still watching goddamned SHIELD than Arrow.

  • ervin

    looks like a ski jumping suit. now i remember why i don’t watch this show.

    • Loso_Rocks

      Or maybe you don’t watch this show because it hasn’t even aired yet.

      • ervin

        my bad, i was thinking about arrow

      • Guy Smiley

        If you’re not watching Arrow, you’re missing one of the most fun things on TV right now. Or any time recently, really. The show’s come a long way from its shaky start.

        If you’re still wasting your time on Agents of SHITE but not watching Arrow, you should change your viewing habits now.

      • ervin

        not watching that crap either my friend

      • cimmerian

        Thinking’s probably a strong word.

      • ervin

        this is mainstream watered down smallville/heroes/stargate/the fallowing/etc. type of tv for children and tasteless mass. and you’re actually right, arrow is the last thing i think about, when i think about what’s good tv. it would have been fine 10-15 yrs ago, i can give you that much, but now it just feels outdated in what is probably the best decade in tv history.

    Total nerdgasm here … The suit looks great and Grant is going to be great in this role. I am excited. I am glad they didn’t go with an older actor and I think all people watching are going to be surprised how good a job Grant can do assuming the story is written well. He has a great supporting cast too.

  • Theodore Trout

    The suit actually looks really good, it’s just not believable that anyone could run fast in tight leather pants.

  • pussyriotwhenishowup

    Ah the CW tackles the flash. Cue twenty twenty somethings that look like they’re 12, playing characters in high school. Gallons of hair gel, have the plot revolve around high school romances (because I give a shit about kids fucking each other) and you have a winner. If you held a gun to the people running the CW and told them to write a show about something besides pretty kids trying to fuck each other…there’d be fucking murders.

    • herpderp

      Or itll be like arrow you know.. good.

    • cimmerian

      Sure. Because that’s been the plot of every episode of Supernatural and Arrow.

  • orianalianna

    The suit looks great but he needs to fill out more the way a runner looks specifically around the legs – it is the Flash after all. The guy needs to look like he packs on and hard as he burns.

    • ʝoe ßloggs

      That would rule out just about every other superhero actor who needs to “pack on”.

      I’d trade that for someone who can act and is physically adequate for the role.

      • orianalianna

        No argument there AT ALL. I would agree on that completely I just hope that as this character evolves he starts to actually fully develop as the speedster. Right now he looks like he can snap in half to be honest.

  • LEM

    He isn’t a rich guy yet he has a fully formed costume but Oliver took a couple seasons to finally get a mask. I hope they have felicity deliver this suit to him compliments of Oliver.

  • Guy Smiley

    Agreed on the actor… He doesn’t strike me as Flash at all. At the very least, he should be Wally and not Barry. He doesn’t look or act anything like Barry, but if he bulks up a bit he might make a good Wally.

    The network bothers me too, but Arrow’s really gotten its act together. Easily my favorite thing on TV right now, and I say that as a long time Green Arrow fan (especially the Grell run)… I am not a fan of the usual CW trash, nor was I fan of Smallville.

  • Cosmourge of Collider

    Banjo? Racist! Tha’s streight-up racist, dawg!

    (And the only thing I’ll smoke is a Nolan impersonator’s pole.)

  • Sweet Pea

    Agreed. They missed a trick not making him Wally West imo.

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    “streight”?
    Is that a cigar brand?
