If there was one CBM released this year that had so much potential - it was DC's The Flash film - better now known as one of the biggest financial flops in superhero film history.
This film was adapting one of the most infamous - and recent might I add, Flash storylines which has already been adapted before, although set to be told on a much bigger scale.
Say what you want about the final product, but the film took several insane turns on a bumpy road of mediocrity: bringing back Michael Keaton as Batman, Ben Affleck as Batman one last time, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Michael Shannon as General Zod, and more!
Aside from those points, the film did not truly live up to the expectations of those who were elated to view it on the silver screen, for perhaps maybe if the costumes in the film were just a tad bit better, fans would look upon the financial flop of a film with slightly more favor.
This new concept art created by concept artist Ed Natividad, reveals two different super suits considered for The Flash: a slightly different Flash suit, and a different Batman motorbike for Ben Affleck.
Though the concept Flash suit strikingly resembles that of the finished product that was worn by Miller in the film, the suit features an indented portion below the chest area – not much else from this concept art looks to be different compared to the official suit in the film.
The next piece of concept art features a different design for Ben Affleck’s Batman’s motorbike – though the suit worn by the Caped Crusader appears to resemble the one worn by the bat in Batman v Superman.
While the bike did not play a pivotal role in the film, potentially seeing Affleck wear the Batman v Superman suit again (arguably one of the best Batman suits) one last time in The Flash, would have been a treat.
What do you think about this concept art from The Flash?
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.
