Here's what Flash and Cyborg could've looked like in Justice League

So anyone else still excited about JUSTICE LEAGUE besides me? Because I understand the "three strikes you're out rule" (my love of MAN OF STEEL has been documented many times on this site, although for many people SUICIDE SQUAD was their last straw), but goddamn if I'm not an easy lay for DC shit. WONDER WOMAN looks amazing (still iffy on the whole WWI/she eventually gives up being a superhero at some point thing, but the film as a stand-alone, divorced from future plots, looks badass) as does JUSTICE LEAGUE (which finally has jokes!)

However, I have to admit, even though I liked most of what I saw in that trailer, the costumes have been meh so far (beyond Wonder Woman and Batman, who I think both look great). Flash's costume in particular just looks too f*cking armored and busy. Flash should be streamlined and sleek, not bulky and cumbersome.

But it could've been worse! Here are some prototypes of the costumes:

 

Oof. To be fair, Flash's might've been used for the "Knightmare" sequence in BATMAN V SUPERMAN (judging by the way the helmet seems to pop open like in that scene), but it's still not great regardless. And it's even more bulky and de-saturated than the one we ended up with! And Cyborg, while it's actually not a bad design on its own, I still do prefer the one they ended up with. It's always better to be able to actually see the actor's face (or a part of it) to help empathize with the hero. And, unlike something like Iron Man, it looks like that would be Cyborg's head and not a helmet that you could just cut to an insert of the actor's face with.

Though, I will say, as designs out-of-context, these designs do look cool. However, they just don't seem to really fit the characters all that well (which is par the course for these Zack Snyder films, even major parts of  MAN OF STEEL *cough*breaking necks to learn not to kill*cough*).

Anyway, what do you guys think? You prefer the costumes seen in the trailer? Or are you a crazy person and actually like these prototypes?

I'm fine with it for the first movie...

Cyborg is okay, but it's tough to be sure until we see him moving around more in the trailers. Flash made his own costume (and obviously on a budget), so it's okay that it looks like it does They can improve it as they move on to his stand-alone movie. It would have been worse if they'd pulled the same crap as Civil War and had Peter leave for Germany with his "onesie" and land with Stark's new battle suit. People overlook that shit because it's Marvel, but it was really stupid and every

DC movies have enough strikes against them to have Batman making everyone's tech in 15 minutes like that.

The Flash looks fit for traveling at light speed

Still kinda worried about Cyborg's look in the trailer. Hopefully, there is a performance from him that can make me overlook that.

The Flash costume they used is still too armored I'd say, Cyborg's costume in the trailer looks fine; I just always think of him as a Teen Titan, not a dude to be alongside Batman or Superman.
