Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

The overly superhero-y stuff (i.e., random lightning bolts) perhaps could have been done without. But, to me, they fit Barry Allen's character as it's been established so far. So I think it's ok overall.

Without any proper lighting it looks awkward





Very TV budget looking

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

They need to ditch the Ronald Mcdonald yellow shoelaces super quick. In fact, with that outfit, I think some chunkier looking boots would look better all round.

Predicting that if it goes to series we'll see a better suit real quick.

ETA: Actually, a couple of those shots in that last link look pretty good. The upper half of the costume looks really good close up.

That was my first reaction. I'm still confident that this won't turn into The Phantom TV pilot though.

Look at the pics in the link Samurai8472 posted. The costume will quickly grow on you.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

^ Perhaps, but right now I'm liking the 1990s costume better. Something along the lines of that speed skater outfit in Mark's post would have been ideal.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

In an earlier shot, it did seem more like running pants, while there it seems more like a leather suit. The top third is quite good, though.

Although, if you embrace the logo, you might as well embrace everything and anything, so I can't really fault this suit.

I know there's a joke somewhere about the suit looking better in motion

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I like it. I think it's also worth keeping in mind that stuff always looks better once it's gone through post, and they've played with the colors and stuff. Stuff never seems to look as good in the behind the scenes shots like these as it does in the final show/movie we see on screen.

I see that as a positive. Movie superhero costumes are generally too elaborate and overthought. This actually looks like a functional piece of clothing that a person can move around in.

Although it looks like I was wrong about the textured parts being breathable fabric. It does look like it's just the kind of decorative texture that movie superhero costumes tend to have. That's a shame -- it would've been nice for the texture to be functional.

Those aren't laces, they're ridged panels.

That may be what they are, but what they look like are yellow Ronald McDonald shoe laces.

I'm hoping this turns out to be an early version of his final look. The leather look doesn't seem to match the material of the outfit in those 1st two released pictures. Maybe he starts out channeling the Oliver Queen look a bit.
Then later, he'll wind up in something...flashier.

It doesn't look too bad but I think it would have looked better if they had carried the smooth part on his chest all the way through his midsection to join the belt, just leaving the textured part on the sides.
