First look at Grant Gustin in uniform for CW's The Flash!

02.28.2014

The first photo of Grant Gustin in the new Arrow spinoff series, The Flash, has been revealed!

Gustin first appeared as Barry Allen in Arrow, where he was later involved in the laboratory accident that left him with mysterious speed powers. Arrow left Gustin's appearance with the origin cliffhanger and now he's all geared up to make his first appearance as the superhero known only as The Flash, which is set to debut its pilot for the 2014-2015 season. The pilot is directed by Arrow alum David Nutter and written by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kriesberg and Geoff Johns. The new costume, which only reveals the head for now, is designed by three-time Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who is also responsible for Arrow's duds.

Take a look:

It's pretty cool to see The Flash back in live-action form, even if it's for the small screen, which isn't a knock. Arrow is doing exceptionally well and part of that reason is how much the show has embraced its comic-book roots, never afraid to venture into the more colorful designs from the printed page (although typically muted down). Other castmembers for the show include Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Candice Patton as Iris West, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, and original Flash star from the '90's show, John Wesley Shipp, who will make an appearance in an undisclosed role for the pilot.

What do you guys think? Will you be checking out The Flash when it airs?

Question because I honestly don't know...

I see folks musing how it would be cool to have John Wesley Shipp appear as the original Flash, but given that the 90's Flash show was on CBS, would the CW's Flash show even have the legal rights to refer to it?

The 'Original Flash' in question should be referring to Jay Garrick, the original DC Comics character who was the first character in DC Comics history (at least to my knowledge) who calls himself The Flash.

Would love to see a flash movie, imagine this. I always thought that flash outrunning a nuclear blast wave would make for an incredible big screen moment. Use creative angles and effects and you've got a very memorable scene. Anyway, really digging this headpiece, hope he and arrow can evolve into cinema.

Not only is it Flash, so who cares... but it's Flash on Arrow.

Costume looks cool. To be fair one of the major hurdles for this show will be representing his powers without looking too cheesy / ridiculous. If they can get that down this could be a great addition to DC's televisual universe.

Looks pretty great, interest in Arrow is definitely renewed, at least until Flash gets his own show.

Kinda wish the suit is a bit more red but this looks good. Need to see the whole suit though.

Kinda looks like a cross between Captain America and Daredevil. Hope we get to see the full suit soon, this looks alright.

I hope he isn't wearing leather pants or he's going to catch fire pretty quick from the friction.

Diggin it! I didn't realize Coleen Atwood was involved in the costume design for this and Arrow. Wow the street cred just went way up.

Flash Fact!

I'm very impressed. I really hope they follow some of what Geoff Johns did back before Flash Rebirth took the risk and darkness out of the character and his universe and bring in Murmur, Mirror Master, Captain Cold and the rest. The Johns Wally West era was the best run the character ever had and I'd love to see it as the framework for what they're doing here. That was back when the rogues gallery of the Flash was being used even better that the Bat villains because they were scarier, less well

The Arrow is awesome. The Flash origin on The show was very clever. The headshot above looks pretty good. Everything points to this show being very good.

*sigh*, of course Joblos love it... At least it's a hundred times better, and this is judging only from the head shot, than Arrow's (can't still f***ing believe they call him Arrow) very lame and uninspired costume. Let's hope the rest of Flash's costume is that, a costume, and that he is not wearing some dark red leather jacket and some Nikes...

John Wesley Shipp...

I would be so happy if they made him "Barry Sr", the original Flash 20 years before who has become an urban legend since he stopped putting the suit on. The new Flash would be his son, whose dormant "flash genes" got activated by his accident in the lab. In the original tv-show, a lot of people didn't believe that The Flash was real which led to some funny gags between two beat cops. I know, I know, the fanboy can dream, but wouldn't it be cool to see Wesley Shipp in the old costume ?

He looks pretty good. When I saw him on Arrow I was questioning how good he would look as Flash. But he does look the part.
Can't to see this in the fall. When it comes to TV, DC is at the top of their game right now.

Looks really good.
Considering how they're going with the leather suit motif, it'll be interesting to see how similar it looks to Ben Afleck's Daredevil costume when we get a full body shot.

The head portion does look very similar to Captain America's head in First Avenger. Obviously just a different color.

The suit (or at least the head part) looks great. Will definitely be checking this out and if it's half as good as Arrow, then we will have another great comic book show on television (unlike Agents of Shit).

And Danielle Panabaker involved in the cast is just extra points. Good actress and very beaitiful.

Soloist hasn't been down on Marvel. Just the one show, duhyeager. EdDangerous, he's outlined several times what he doesn't like about the show (I don't remember because I don't watch the show).

Agents of Shield isn't shit, it may not be the BEST superhero show, I do enjoy arrow, but AOS fits in well with the universe Marvel has set up.

Agents is soooooo boring compared to Arrow, plus Arrow actually embraces the fact it's a comic book show. I know Agents said it wouldn't have super heroes on the show but could we at least have characters named after their comic counter part?! Like Arrow who has used Harbinger, G-Force, the Royal Flush gang etc.

I'm just poking fun at the show. It's just disappointing that it's not better considering the quality that Marvel has put out time and time again with their films.

I'm more of a DC fan, but I love both DC and Marvel and Marvel definitely has the upper hand when it comes to their films. I just hope DC can follow suit with Superman vs Batman, Justice League, and whatever films they have planned after those.
