Look...quick...the full costume of ‘The Flash’ has been revealed by Warner Bros. TV!
At the end of February, we got a glimpse of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen in his red-hot gear, but now we have the first full view of what the fastest man alive will look like in action. Of course, we’ll have to wait until the pilot to see how he handles his new powers and his new apparel.
The costume just didn’t appear out of thin air -- like The Flash -- as three-time Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood designed the outfit. She’s also known for fashioning Oliver Queen’s vigilante costume on CW’s hit series ‘Arrow,’ starring Stephen Amell.
As most of us already know, ‘The Flash’ focuses on Barry Allen who suffers a freak accident and is then transformed into one speedy man. In addition to Gustin, the pilot will also star ‘Law & Order’s Jesse L. Martin as Allen’s mentor Detective West, Candice Patton as Barry’s best friend Iris West, Tom Cavanagh as Harris Wells aka the creator of Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator, Carlos Valdes as engineering genius Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow and ‘TVD’ alum Rick Cosnett as Detective Eddie Thawne.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see this pilot in action, and judging from Gustin’s tweets, he’s excited as well. Just after the full revealing of the costume Gustin tweeted, “Thanks for the enthusiasm!! This process has been so fun and exhausting. Every night I feel like a 10yr old after a full day at Disneyland.”
He then added, “Alright, time to go put it on and continue making a kick ass pilot that i truly believe will make Flash plans so stoked and proud.”
