Late last month, Warner Bros. Television released the first photo of Grant Gustin as “The Flash” — his head, at least. Today, the studio delivers a look at the full costume, designed by three-time Academy Award-winner Colleen Atwood. As the earlier peek suggested, it’s a largely faithful take on Barry Allen’s consistent and recognizable garb from decades of DC Comics history.
“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/executive producer David Nutter said in the press release.
Production of “The Flash” pilot is currently ongoing in Vancouver. The series has been discussed since summer 2013, with Gustin debuting in the civilian role of Barry Allen in two episodes of “Arrow” last fall.
The show, executive produced by “Arrow” veterans Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Nutter, is in contention for a spot on The CW’s 2014-2015 schedule. The pilot was written by Berlanti, Kreisberg, and long-time “Flash” comic book writer/DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns.
