Earlier this morning Warner Brothers TV released an image previewing what the costume for The CW’s show The Flash will look like. The costume for The Flash is being designed by Colleen Atwood, who also designed the Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow costume for Arrow. The image of The Flash revealed a mostly traditional look, incorporating darker shades of red and gold to stay in line with the darker feel of the new shows.
The Flash will be played by Grant Gustin. Viewers of The CW’s other DC superhero television program Arrow may remember Gustin’s appearance as Barry Allen, The Flash’s civilian identity. The Flash will start with a pilot episode later this year. Original plans had called for Gustin to appear in a third episode of Arrow as a sort of backdoor pilot, but the standalone pilot was chosen instead. Additionally, John Wesley Shipp will appear in the pilot and is to play a recurring role should the show make it to series production.
