Two weeks ago, Flash fans worldwide got an early peek at the Scarlet Speedster as embodied by Grant Gustin. However, today we’re treated to our first complete look at Gustin as The Flash!

The CW’s new pilot The Flash, from Warner Bros. Television and based upon characters published by DC Comics, is currently in production. The Flash’s costume 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 Huntsman, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Sleepy Hollow, among others.

“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,” said pilot director/executive producer David Nutter (Arrow, Game of Thrones).

The Flash pilot is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Nutter (all of whom also executive produce Arrow). Nutter is directing from a script by Berlanti & Kreisberg & DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.

The Flash is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, and is based upon characters published by DC Comics.
