First Look: Grant Gustin as ‘The Flash’

THE FLASH First Image

Hello lightning bolt!

Warner Bros. TV has released the first image of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash. The image looks darker and more Daredevil like than that of the cheesy felt costume I’m used to from the John Wesley Shipp days.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for this newer, darker look designed by three-time Oscar® winner Colleen Atwood, who also designed the costume for Arrow.

Production on The Flash for The CW begins next week and is produced by the team behind Arrow; Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Davi Nutter.

The pilot follows scientist Barry Allen, who through a freak accident is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive.
