First Image of Grant Gustin as The Flash Released

The actor appeared in 'Arrow' as Barry Allen, but now it's time to see how he looks in the speedster's costume!

Grant Gustin made his debut on Arrow as Barry Allen and the show even revealed how he gets his powers. We've yet to see his swift abilities in action, but that's because it's being saved for his very own pilot episode. However, today we're lucky enough to get our first teaser image of Grant Gustin in the Flash costume!

Production of The Flash pilot will start next week and Barry Allen's costume was designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood. The pilot will be directed by David Nutter and the script is by Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.

Viners, what do you think of the costume and are you pumped for the pilot? Don't be shy, speak your mind below.

Looks great so far! They are definitely going for a grounded look to the costume, which explains the dark red as well. I can't wait to see it in action.

ehhhhhhhhhhhhh. Still not sold on the actor based on the fact he bears no resemblence to Barry and DOESNT HAVE BLOND HAIR.

Looks good.

Wow, they actually pulled off the ears and helmet--at least from this angle.

AWESOMESAUCE.

The texture and colors remind me of Man of Steel.

I wonder how long it will take for fans to splice him into Justice League fan trailers.

Hmmm looks very much like Cap. America's movie helmet, idk if I like it yet but I gotta see the rest of the uniform to really tell

Soooo glad they went with a deeper red and not something bright. Still worried about the rest of the costume because it's not an easy one to pull off for live action.

Ehhhhh I don't like it I can't put my finger on why but I just dont

Looks like the costume could be pretty cool after all! I'll admit, I was a little worried at how it might turn out.

Can't wait for the pilot!

His antennas are the only thing im worried about besides the fACT THAT HE DOESNT LOOK LIKE BARRY

Edited by ARMIV2

Very interested in seeing the rest of him.

My god comic fans are impossible to please. I love it myself. Was not expecting the cowl to look that great. Can't wait to see more!

Edited by TDK_1997

Looks pretty good actually.

Posted by Captain13

A fan made a theme song for the new show. It's cool listening to it while looking at the image, IMO.

For your entertainment:

@scarlet_spider_forever: Neither does Ollie, Roy's hair isn't Red, etc. DC just doesn't care about the hair color when it comes to live action characters.

Looks great, I'm looking forward to this

Posted by patrat18

Sweet.

So pumped for this show.

I don't see why it even matters.

Hm, I remain skeptic. The Flash's costume looks as it does and it's hard to make it look realistic in TV or film, I get that. But I don't really like the "armor" look, the suit is too think. Also, not sure about the actor. I would have loved someone who looked a little older.

Agreed. Based of this single picture, I think it looks to be one of the most accurate and most appealing representations of a hero's suit.

Better than I expected.

Is it because he looks more like Kid Flash in Flash's costume?

Looks weird. Should be a bit brighter. But overall a pretty good design.

Yah thats it :D

Edited by JakeN7

@lcazt1996: Because it's part of the physical characteristics of a character that is being adapted for live action.

Looks great. I was skeptical, cause the Flash costume imo, is the hardest to pull off in live action.

Posted by MrMazz

IT looks good obviously we're going to have to wait and see what it looks like in motion, and how VFX are used but overall I'm confident in the production. David Nutter is an excellent pilot whisper.

Maybe if he was more buff and the costume highlighted his pecs more people will like it.

One problem, don't like the chin

Posted by The Stegman

Looks great. I think the Flash's costume is the hardest to portray in live action, they did a good job.

Posted by manwithoutshame

it looks pretty cool and retro.

Posted by NightFang

I need to see the rest of the costume before liking anything yet.

Posted by JakeN7

@nox_arc: For sure. Only slight issue (no it's not the chin, I like the chin) is that it looks like he's wearing a dark red domino mask instead of having it all one piece. Still looks great though.

Posted by reaverlation

Awesome. Freakin Awesome. Already can't wait for Arrow's next episode now this?!

Posted by Jphu8414

I personally think it looks fantastic, just how I imagined it would be

It is like Barry costume in comics

@jphu8414: That meme has become so meta now it's crazy.

Nothing special but nothing terrible.

@black_arrow: No, that's almost always been one piece. An extension of the cowl, not an overlaying domino mask.
