You’ve seen the mask, but here’s the first full look at Grant Gustin in costume as “The Flash” on the “Arrow” spinoff.
The costume is far more faithful to the source material than you normally see from TV adaptations of comic books, with Gustin’s Barry Allen decked out in a full-body red suit. There are even a couple instances of that trademark yellow lightning bolt.
The costume was designed by Colleen Atwood, who is also responsible for Arrow’s look. “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,” pilot director David Nutter says in a release.
This version of Allen was first introduced in the “Arrow” Season 2 episode “The Scientist,” though he returned once after that. “The Flash” is targeted for the fall 2014 season on The CW.
