The leather look doesn't seem to match the material of the outfit in those 1st two released pictures.
That's just the difference between a candid shot in natural lighting and a posed, polished shot in studio lighting.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I don't know why they're doing the muted colors - felt the same way about the "Man of Steel" suit.

I can see it for Arrow where the hood is ostensibly camo - does the Flash need to hide in some way? Does Superman?

overly bright colors look cartoonish in live action.

The 90s series suit didn't look too bad.

I don't think the colours are all that muted. They look fine to me.

Yeah, but that suit was also darker than the comics' version. Remember, the show came out only a year after Burton's Batman, so initially it was all about presenting the Flash as a dark, driven avenger of the night.

Yup. The way the show was shot the suit tended to look fairly dark as I recall. I'm really going to have to re-watch it one of these days.

Look 2 pages back in this thread, you'll see it's nearly the same shade as this new costume.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I agree it might be a bit over-designed, with a few too many strange design elements thrown in. But overall I think it still works pretty well.

And let's face it, coming from the Arrow team, this is about as "superhero-y" as we're probably ever going to get.

^It's worth pointing out that, now that Oliver has started wearing a domino mask, his costume is quite close to the version the comics' Green Arrow sported starting in The Longbow Hunters.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Oliver's costume has its roots in what he wore on the island. The greasepaint/mask was for practical purposes.

The 90s show had the suit be the only clothing that wouldn't disintegrate when Barry ran that fast. It was originally a Russian deep diving suit at S.T.A.R. Labs, wasn't it? I forget why they added the symbol and headgear 'wings'.

I wonder what the justification for the "bangles" on this Flash costume will be.

(not that there need be any)

I think the helmet wings in the 90's version contained communications didn't it?

^Yes they did, police scanner and such so Flash could hear what was going on. I am ok with the suit right now. Lets hope the rogues get some good looks as well.

Now I see where Tom Welling's position on a costume was coming from.

Might grow on me, it does have an old-school pulp look to it.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I have to admit though, this version found online does look a lot cooler.
