The Flash has now officially come to life.
The Arrow spin-off stars Gustin as scientist Barry Allen who, after a freak accident, is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. Although Barry was struck by lightning during Arrow's midseason finale, we've yet to see his superpower and costume in action.
After being introduced in the two-parter, the initial plan called for Barry to return in Episode 20, where we'd presumably see him in costume. The CW instead ordered a pilot, which will also star Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Candace Patton and Carlos Valdes.
The costume was designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who also designed Stephen Amell's costume for Arrow. "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," executive producer David Nutter, who also directed the pilot, said in a statement.
What do you think of the costume?
