Among the polarizing reviews and critiques DC's The Flash has been met with since its summertime theatrical release, one topic the Scarlet Speedster has seemingly been unable to run away from are remarks on their super suit.
It appears impossible for the franchise to craft a visually appealing Flash suit for the hero, for Ezra Miller's hero's debut Flash suit within the DCEU in 2016's Suicide Squad, and 2017's Justice League, was met with a split consensus amongst fans as well.
Now, The Flash film has presented a more modernized - high-tech version of attire for the Scarlet Speedster to fight crime in - courtesy of Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne, however, it is still not the best live-action Flash suit to date.
From what we have seen in recent weeks, concept art from The Flash has showcased different - if not better designs for Ezra Miller's Barry Allen - the newest design today being an alternate helmet design for The Flash:
Still aiming to achieve the same concept for a Flash helmet design, artist Ed Natividad demonstrates a more "proper" alternative to the Crimson Comet's cowl.
The helmet appears more form-fitting on Ezra's face, as the final version of the suit would awkwardly "box" the actors face with whatever had been exposed in certain shots - looking relatively goofy overall.
Natividad's design shows the helmet resting against the bottom of Miller's chin, as from there the gold the iconic Flash wings would begin to trail to the sides; giving a more streamlined and organized look to the colored augments.
What do you think of this alternate Flash helmet design?
Worlds collide when the Flash uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change the events of the past. However, when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, he becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation. With no other superheroes to turn to, the Flash looks to coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian -- albeit not the one he's looking for.
