Grant Gustin's Flash Pays Homage To Comic Book Original
Oh we like this a lot. CW have released the first image of Grant Gustin in his Flash outfit and it looks like they have absolutely nailed it! Of course there isn't a great deal to go on, but if this first headshot is anything to go by then the TV version of the Scarlet Speedster is going to be incredibly complimentary to the comic book one. And that is exactly as it should be. The Flash is one of THE classic comic book characters, so it is a relief to see that CW haven't tried to do anything, errr....'flashy' with his outfit.
Here's the press release stuff from the folks at CW...
"The costume for The Flash was designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who also designed the costume for Arrow and whose motion picture credits include Academy Awards for her work on Alice In Wonderland, Memoirs of a Geisha and Chicago, as well as seven additional Oscar nominations for films such as Snow White and the Huntsmen, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and Sleepy Hollow."
