WB Reveal First Photo of Grant Gustin As The Flash

New Flash Costume

After all the excitement and anticipation, as well as two episodes of Arrow to introduce the character, CW’s The Flash pilot is due to go into production next week, so in the run up to that, Warner Bros. Television has just released the first picture of star Grant Gustin in costume as DC Comics iconic superhero.

The image shows a side on view of Gustin’s head in what appears to be a very faithful adaptation of the scarlet speedster’s costume, although it does appear to be a slightly darker shade of red than used in the comic books. So far Gustin has appeared in two episode of Arrow in The Flash’s civilian identity, Barry Allen.

The Flash costume for the TV series has been designed by Colleen Atwood, a three-time Academy Award winner, who, incidentally, also designed Stephen Armell’s Arrow costume. The Flash pilot, currently in contention for a series on the CW’s 2014-2015 schedule, will be executive produced by Arrow’s own Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and David Nutter. It will also be directed by Nutter and written by Berlanti, Kriesberd, and DC chief creative officer, and Flash comic book writer Geoff Johns.
