With production on The Flash starting up next week, Warner Bros. TV has released a first look of Barry Allen’s alter ego, in costume.
In the Arrow spin-off pilot, scientist Barry Allen (played by Grant Gustin) is given the power of super speed, through a freak accident — thus transforming him into the fastest man alive aka The Flash.
Check it out, then read on for more:
The costume for The Flash was designed by three-time Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland, Memoirs of a Geisha and Chicago,) who also fashioned the costume for Arrow‘s titular vigilante. Atwood’s other film credits include Snow White and the Huntsman, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Sleepy Hollow.
In addition to Gustin, the cast for The Flash includes Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order), Tom Cavanagh (Ed), Danielle Panabaker (Shark), Rick Cosnett (Vampire Diaries), Candice Patton (The Game) and Broadway’s Carlos Valdes.
