THE FLASH: New Concept Art Reveals Alternate Costume Design

New concept art from The Flash film showcases an alternate version of The Flash suit, as this depiction differs in color, material, and even a different cowl

The Flash film starring Ezra Miller, was the most recent live-action adaptation of the infamous Scarlet Speedster, meaning it was also the latest Flash costume design that had been on-screen. After receiving his suit as a gift from Bruce Wayne, Barry Allen sports a rather interesting take on the speedster's suit.

Departing from the rather original suit design that was featured in the Justice League film, this Flash suit worn by Ezra Miller's Barry Allen is a newer take on what had previously been worn by them.

Now, unused concept art for the main Barry Allen's Flash suit in the film has been released by concept artist Jerad S. Marantz, showcasing a Flash suit which looks as if it has taken inspiration from previous suit-adaptations.

This interpreation of The Flash suit is dazzling in gold all throughout, which becomes most prominent around the arms and belt area. An extremely comic-accurate touch. 

The Flash chest-emblem is larger, and the backdrop where the iconic lightning bolt rests is a more accurate shade of white. The red color is another change, as this time the suit contains both a dark and bright shade of red which makes it pop-out more aesthetically, when comparing the singular shade of red the final suit in the film had.

Lastly, the cowl has been perfected, as its shape clearly indicates it would have fit Ezra Miller's head more comfortably. The earpieces are smaller, and reminiscent of The Flash suit from Justice League, which the overall cowl looks to be a copy of in some aspects.

This version of The Flash suit looks to have drawn inspiration from The Justice League suit, The Injustice 2 Flash suit, and Grant Gustin's The Flash suit.

Whoever approved of the final designs for Flash and Batlfeck needs to check their eyes

@Fares -

It was the director. The guy sucks and even intentionally wanted the special effects to be awful. Massive fail.

He is directing Gunn's new Batman film🤡
ProfessorWhy - 7/8/2023, 1:38 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - I don't Believe that's going to happen.... Gunn will sign a director who is more of a sure thing after The Flash
AmazingFILMporg - 7/8/2023, 1:44 PM
@ProfessorWhy -

For now we can only go with what the CEO has said and its a horrible decision 😐

@AmazingFILMporg - I know, I've read the same quotes but, I took that as Muschietti regurgitating a 'studio-approved' excuse for the bad and underdeveloped special/visual effects. In no shape, manner, way or form would I think he "wanted" the CGI to look exactly like what we got for the film. 🫤

@Fares - All of Affleck’s suit have varying degrees of shit. Keaton looked awesome though.
AmazingFILMporg - 7/9/2023, 1:45 PM
@SuperiorHeckler -

But that's what he said. I can only go with what the director said he wanted to do and did. When someone shows you who they are believe them💁

Now you're just making up stuff in your head to justify his shit decisions💁
Th3Batman - 7/9/2023, 2:31 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - He's not directing anything after this flop. He'll leave over "scheduling conflicts".
emeraldtaurus - 7/9/2023, 3:29 PM
@ProfessorWhy - hopefully Affleck. It's a no brainer !

They look creepy in that cowl
TheVengeance - 7/9/2023, 11:44 AM
@JFerguson - it’s only one person

@TheVengeance - use of a singular “they” dates back hundreds of years. I doubt you object to usage of a singular “you” rather than “thee” or “thou”, you’re just being intolerant behind the veil of policing people’s grammar
TheVengeance - 7/12/2023, 1:10 PM
@The72nd - what? It’s a singular person and not plural so why is it referred to as they?
ProfessorWhy - 7/8/2023, 1:36 PM
Needed an alternate script, lead, SFX standard office
dracula - 7/8/2023, 1:38 PM
Looks better than what they went with

Although freaky ezra still doesnt pull off the cowl
BritishMonkey - 7/8/2023, 1:52 PM
Why does he look like Robert Pattinson?
Madman - 7/8/2023, 5:12 PM
Some minor adjustments to the cowl and this would be miles beyond the scrotal/brain matter textured suit with the acrylic bowling ball helmet in the film
TheVengeance - 7/9/2023, 11:44 AM
@Madman - haha I can’t un see it now

Why is a Flash suit so hard to make
DalekCraigWasson - 7/9/2023, 11:24 AM
@GhostDog - Because it is a suit based on simplicity, stark red with sparing yellow, and CBM costumes always super overdesign things.
GhostDog - 7/9/2023, 1:51 PM
@DalekCraigWasson - facts
DarthAlgar - 7/9/2023, 10:25 AM
Whomever designed the film's suit and god-awful cowl deserves a swift kick in the ass.
Origame - 7/9/2023, 10:29 AM
Looks...basically the same as what we got. Just more muted colors.

Something we need to remember is costumes drawn don't always translate to looking good in real life.

Just look at the concepts for the flash season 5 suit. That suit actually looked really good in concept.
TheVengeance - 7/9/2023, 11:42 AM
@Origame - yup that’s why Burton’s reinvented all black look for 89, the all black DKT suits and The Batman shit all over the goofy ass looking BvS exact suit translation

Fixed that for you.

Starts : One of the best comic book movies of all time

Ends: The biggest comic book movie flop in movie history

and Ezra Millernis still a scumbag
TheVengeance - 7/9/2023, 11:40 AM
@WakandaTech - and they’re both by far the two best DCEU movies
MuadDib - 7/9/2023, 10:43 AM
What Flash wears in the film is obviously too thick and clunky looking. Only contributes to the trash quality of the film.

GotG may be great films, but I have reservations about Gunn leading the way for DC, after DC / AT&T / Discovery have made so many bad decisions over the past few years. You would think that they would learn from their mistakes, but they don’t.

Fingers crossed DC can turn things around, bc they have so much potential. The current state of the DCU is so sad.

Too bad we couldn't get an alternate movie with an alternate star instead.
