Flash to the rescue Flash costume CW series Grant Gustin

This morning we revealed the first teaser here at borg.com for CW Network’s Fall TV series, The Flash. The general consensus seemed to be that the preview, first shown on Wednesday night’s season finale of Arrow, and the new Flash costume was underwhelming.

Never fear.

The CW Network just released a full-length trailer for The Flash.  It’s no Arrow, but it has promise.  Seeing Grant Gustin walking down a city street with Jesse L. Martin will have you thinking Law & Order is back.  Tom Cavanaugh appears to have a much bigger role than initially expected.  Danielle Panabaker looks as if she can fill in for the Felicity Smoak energetic friend and Candice Patton’s Iris West looks like she will step in as Barry Allen’s love interest early on in the series.

So check out this first real trailer for CW Network’s The Flash:

THE-FLASH-First-look

The CW Network released this first look at the new Flash costume and announced that filming of the pilot episode will begin this week.  This time around, the supersuit developed by Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood seems to have kept with the modern design continuity of her costume for Stephen Amell’s Arrow while possibly pulling in some inspiration from Chris Evans’ Captain America costume from Captain America: The First Avenger, with that 1940s leather football helmet look, complete with chin guard.

Captain America–inspiration for the new Flash supersuit helmet?

The primary red-colored suit from the decades of comic book artist renderings has been cast aside for an edgier, dark look, also perhaps taking the lead from the darker mood of the Arrow series’ new DC universe that the new Barry Allen/Flash springs from.  The color also resembles the classic Flash series that this new series will be undoubtedly compared to, possibly the best incarnation of a costumed hero to appear on TV or film, worn in 1990-1991 by actor John Wesley Shipp, shown here:

The original Flash–a supersuit that can’t be beat.
