The CW has released the first official look at Grant Gustin as The Flash in their upcoming pilot.
In the series, scientist Barry Allen (Gustin) has a freak accident that gives him the power of super speed and transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive. Allen was introduced on the CW series Arrow, but he won’t make his debut as The Flash until the pilot, production on which begins next week.
The Flash costume was designed by Colleen Atwood, a three-time Academy Award-winner who also designed Stephen Amell’s “Arrow” costume. “The Flash” pilot, in contention for a series spot on The CW’s 2014-2015 schedule, is executive produced by “Arrow” vets Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter, directed by Nutter and written by Berlanti, Kriesberg and DC chief creative officer and former long-time “Flash” comic book writer Geoff Johns.
