CW release full body photo Grant Gustin in ‘The Flash’ costume

EW published the first full-body photo of The Flash in costume in a new March 11 article.

The Flash Alex Ross DC Comics photoThe CW previously unveiled a close-up of The Flash’s helmet, but this is the first time fans see the entire costume.

The CW has already started production on the Arrow spin-off pilot, which stars Grant Gustin as the fastest man on Earth.

The suit was designed by award-winning designer Colleen Atwood.

Atwood has three Oscars under her belt, winning the Academy Award for her work on Chicago in 2002, Memoirs of a Geisha in 2005 and Alice in Wonderland in 2010.

I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash’s iconic suit,” director David Nutter said in a release.

Fans will obviously note that the suit is a darker red than the previous incarnations of the suit. The lightning bolt on the chest is there. The ear wings that didn’t look like they protruded in the previous helmet profile shot apparently do indeed stick out a little.

The Flash will also star Jesse L. Martin, John Wesley Shipp and Tom Cavanagh.

Production is underway in Vancouver with a fall premiere increasingly likely.
