Grant Gustin On Set In The Flash Costume

In the last week DC and the CW has released two glimpses of
Grant Gustin in the Flash costume from the CW’s new fall show The Flash. The
first image we got was a head shot showing Gustin in the Flash cowl with his
trademark lightning bolt ear wings. DC followed that image up yesterday with a
pre-running stance pose. Both images utilized lighting to highlight certain
parts of the costume while keeping other parts a bit of a mystery.

Now with filming underway it was just a matter of time
before onlookers would get pics and videos of the actor in action and in
costume, so it wasn’t really a big surprise today when both popped up on social media.
The pictures and videos show Gustin as the Flash in action
running (sans special effects) revealing a full view of The CW’s Flash
star in costume. The suit looks a bit looser than it did in the pic DC
released yesterday. Gone is the white in the Flash chest emblem as well as a
reduction in size. Also missing is the Flash’s trademark lightning bolt belt
and in its place is a solid red belt with lightning bolt accents on the costume.
I like the costume as I stated on last nights Frontline Live
it reminds me a bit of a Smallville flavor to it. I could see this as a natural
progression of Bart’s Impulse costume from Smallville.  Yes there are somethings I would have done different
but overall I think this is a nice modern representation of the Flash costume
that stays true to the comics while makes it functionally appropriate for the
real world. Now all we have to see is how it looks with the special effects and
how DC can top this costume for the upcoming Justice League movie.
