CW's The Flash has a New Costume!

One of our favorite t.v. shows at What’cha Reading is, none other, than CW’s The Flash.  The first season remained one of the most well done and reverent of comic book based programs.  There aren’t many angles for The CW to improve upon as the first season was regarded by fans and critics as an incredible accomplishment.  Yet, just released July 20th, is a new photo of Grant Gustin as The Fastest Man Alive – AND he’s wearing a slightly altered outfit!  See below.

While there aren’t many changes to the costume, one difference that is noticeable is the lightening bolt emblem on his chest.  The classic logo for The Flash has a slightly larger, rounder, and all white background that brings the costume even closer to the comic books.

The new suit comes from Maya Mani, the costume designer responsible for the new costume Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen will be wearing on the upcoming season of “Arrow.”  Colleen Atwood previously designed the original costumes, along with Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl costume for CBS.

The Flash returns for season two at 8 PM ET, October 6th on The CW.
