Here are my thoughts on the suit:


I give the suit a 5.5, maybe a 6 out of 10.

They CW'd him a good bit, here's what needs fixed:

- Needs the white behind the logo instead of red, also the lightning bolts should be symmetrical instead of the bottom end being shorter than the top part.

- Needs the right ear pieces like how Ethan Van Sciver draws them as seen below:



- Needs the gold lightning trim on the forearm area of the costume and the waist/"belt" area.

- Although I'd love to see the gold boots, I know CW doesn't have the balls for that, so gold lightning trim on the top of The Flash's boots right where they meet below his knees would be ideal.

- Suit should look less busy, and that bigass belt buckle NEEDS to go.

- Make the "red" areas on the suit crimson/scarlet instead of burgundy.

Other than that the rest is fine. I really hope this suit is just the Mark 1 and we will see some big improvements in later episodes, there's definitely room for them. Oh and the chin strap doesn't bug me too much, I think it's stupid but I can take or leave it.

But how will it affect the story in any way?

Don't know....half these characters are visuals anyway. We've already got black-psychologist-step-sister-childhood-sweetheart Iris West taking care of affecting the story department for us...lol.

It sucks that DC characters are so frequently screwed up. Reynolds' Green Lantern costume looked bad, Palicki's Wonder Woman looked bad... now The Flash isn't looking too good either.

The writing on The Flash will be good, Arrow Season 2 is high quality. But the suit is a huge turn off...I expected something movie quality. Something that wouldn't look out of place alongside Cavill's Superman. I had unrealistic expectations.

Well I think that looks cool, especially for CW.

Considering how their other costumes look (Arrow, Canary, Huntress, etc), I don't know why anyone would expect something on the level of Man of Steel.

Besides, it's also a set-photo. Remember TASM's set photos?

I suggested Dan Stevens before. Stevens is supposed to be badass in upcoming film The Guest.

Hmmm... well, it's not quite what I was expecting but I think we do have to take into account that these suits do tend to look at least a little different on camera than they do in set photos. I'm not as crazy about it as I wanted to be; not sure that I like the loose-fitting "jacket" look or the belt. It does remind me a bit of the Daredevil costume, although I liked that suit, so that's not necessarily a bad thing, IMO.

The mask is by far the best part of the costume. I think they'll tweak it over time and we'll eventually get something more akin to Captain America's Avengers costume or the Amazing Spider-Man 2 suit. However, it could certainly be a LOT worse (see: cancelled Justice League TV show suit).

At least it's a better look than that awful Quicksilver costume in X-Men: DOFP.

Fanboy overreaction much? Palicki and Gustin's costumes are on TV budget so that's kinda expected. Reynolds's was on poor CGI rendering. If his was practical like Cavill's then it definitely would have been better.

And that can only be your fault.

It's funny how it features the zipper jacket thing like I predicted/ sarcastically said it would, and while it might not mean much, you're right, I agree, it's still much better than FOX's Quicksilver suit, lol.

I think it looks good but it's not as good as the MOS suit.

Not going to judge the suit until I see some actual footage and not set pics.

I like the material they used for Hunger Games and Ender's Game...they should go that route for the suit IMO. Less leather more micro-fiber and poly-fabrics.

I'm all for a new actor as Flash. Anyone but Gustin. Gustin makes a fine Barry Allen. But i don't want that cheap ass looking suit to be considered in the same universe as MOS.

The cheapness of the suit is a major turn off. I definitely don't want a united universe. A cheap tv version of Flash doesn't deserve to be in the same universe as MOS, it just wouldn't look right.

If this is the best costume they could pull off on their budget, then i don't look forward to seeing the running effects :/

Calm down, brah. Like totally harshing my mellow cause you're totally like freaking out at a suit meant for a television show. Sure it looks like a Flash-themed motorcycle suit, but that's how the CW rolls.

I might have spoken too soon though. In a few months we might find out that Barry actually has crimson hair under that cowl.

Why are you guys talking like it's going to be in the same universe as the movies?? Did i miss an announcement or rumor?

I doubt this will be connected. It better not be. CW plus a bad suit for Flash and an actor who is what? 21 years old? Yeahhh i dont think that's connected to Justice League.

If they aren't connected than how come Grant Gustin had a cameo in Man of Steel?
