The first trailer for the upcoming fifth season of The CW's The Flash showed Barry Allen finally receiving the iconic costume ring, a staple of the hero's comic book history. But a new leak suggests Season 5 will introduce a new costume that forgoes the leather-clad aesthetic in favor of a more vibrant, comics-accurate look.
An artist's interpretation of the purported new design was uploaded to the Real World of Flash Instagram page, accompanied by a caption that reads, "The Season 5 suit will consist of no leather at all. It's now all textured spandex and made up of panels sewn together... Boots are red with more gold around the top."
Insider info ⚡️⚡️ - - CORRECTION: his neck doesn’t show. It’s under his chin that does! I was speechless for a good half hour that i couldn’t type correctly. I was able to see a test photo of the suit and i really liked it. When they reveal that promo pic for the suit reveal, it is gonna feed me for a good 2 months until the show is back. However, One thing i didn’t like with how the new suit looked was how small the emblem was on his chest. But everything else made up for it. Also it’s just a test and i hope they modified that. This suit looks amazing and i can’t wait for everyone to see it!!! ⚡️ - - Art on right by @andypoondesign
