Fan response to Grant Gustin’s suit in the upcoming Flash show has been mixed – some people love it, some people hate it. The suit is a slight reimagining, changing some classic elements but staying faithful to the source material. In a recent interview, Gustin dished on his thoughts of the suit, confirming it has been tweaked, and dropping some other hints as to what will happen in the show!
“You don’t want to hear an actor complain about being a superhero, but yeah, it’s not the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn. But it’s maybe the coolest thing I’ve ever worn, which kind of makes up for it. And we’ve since made some slight modifications to make it more comfortable,” Grant said of his costume. So, no confirmation that these are visual modifications, but don’t be surprised if the suit continues to evolve – it took over a season for Arrow’s Oliver Queen to get a mask, after all.
Meanwhile, Rick Cosnett spoke about his character, Eddie Thawne, saying: “He’s a star detective and he’s new. He just got transferred from Keystone City to Central City. Everyone loves him in the precinct because he swoops in and does a really good job. He’s a very able man. He’s really nice. He is very good at his job. He doesn’t have any weird addictions or anything…  And I think much to the dismay of Barry because they are friends, and there may or may not be a girl who gets in the way. There’s a lot of tension.” What’s that – a girl? Could this be a love triangle forming? Well, Grant went on to confirm that “Barry’s in love with Iris, so that will be another fun dynamic.” Yep - love triangle.

After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become… The Flash. The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne, Jesse L Martin as Detective Joe West, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells and John Wesley Shipp as Henry Allen.

Give him the right logo, lightning trim, and ear pieces and we're good.

Get rid of belt and belt buckle.
NetmanTripleSec - 6/6/2014, 7:38 AM
Replace with lightning trim like the comics.

Agent Carter will be better-well less mediocre-than this.

Less leather maybe? Suit looks cool but who runs in leather? Makes you musty.
DarthCMPunk - 6/6/2014, 7:51 AM
I swear to god if Reverse Flash hates Barry becuz of a girl almost exactly like Deathstroke hates Oliver no thank u. Either way this is still my most anticipated show ever so I guess I'll get over it lol

Remember that fan-art we saw a while back and we were told that was his official suit? I hope they go that route. That was an awesome suit 2.

Pasto - 6/6/2014, 8:06 AM

I like the suit but it could be better, and much redder

But looking at what they've done with the effects I would understand if he were running around in a red tank top and some old retro Chicago Bulls shorts

This show looks epic

Jungle Fever is no joke though....

Some serious joo joo.
MrNiklander - 6/6/2014, 8:33 AM
Love triangle oh shit not this again.Smallville anyone?
0megaDaGod - 6/6/2014, 8:36 AM


That sucked for Lebron last night.
Snooper - 6/6/2014, 8:41 AM
Guys. The Reverse Flash they showed in the show has the exact same costume as the comic version. That means Barry's costume is obviously going to change a lot closer to the comics.

@McGee..lmao reminded me of this..
