First Look At Grant Gustin As THE FLASH In The CW’s Upcoming Pilot

After much anticipation, we finally have an official glimpse of Grant Gustin suited up as The Flash in The CW’s Arrow spin-off. While it isn’t a full bodyshot, the following first-look image offers a good shot of Barry Allen’s headgear as the Scarlet Speedster. As expected, it’s a great modern reinvention of the mask donned by The Flash in the comics, and it increases anticipation for a shot of the suit in its entirety.

The Flash costume was designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who previously worked on Alice in Wonderland and Snow White & The Huntsman. She was also behind the design of The Arrow’s costume for Arrow. It has also been confirmed that the pilot will begin production next week. And if ordered to series, The Flash will debut on The CW next fall.

The Flash also stars Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Michelle Harrison as Nora Allen, and John Wesley Shipp as an unknown character. We also have a press release accompanying the image.
