CW’s “The Flash” has finally revealed a full look at the costume for the titular character. The costume designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood is definitely set in a darker red. I suppose we have to be open to the idea that it’s a modern take on a comic book character adapted to a live action character with an actual suit. The practicality of the leather materials might also be a bit of a challenge when travelling at top speeds. Does anybody else think this costume looks a lot like Ben’s outfit in “Dare Devil”? Anyway, Atwood also designed Arrow’s costume so I’m sure Flash will look fantastic when they unveil the pilot episode for the anticipated spin-off series.
“The Flash” will branch off the “Arrow” universe story arch and will be filmed as a traditional stand-alone pilot. CW initially planned a backdoor pilot but Barry Allen’s “The Flash” will receive his own grand opening! “Arrow” co-creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and series scribe Geoff Johns will pen the pilot. “Arrow” helmer David Nutter will serve as director. Gustin is supported by Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton and Carlos Valdes.
