AceShowbiz - Upcoming season 4 of "The Flash" will feature new Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) as well as new costume for the Scarlet Speedster. A photo of The Flash's new suit has found its way out online, offering a good look at the updated costume.
Taken by an Argentinian journalist during a set visit this summer, the photo features the suit being put on a mannequin. While set photos taken back in July only gave a look at the upper half of the costume, the new photo offers fans a full look at it.
From the previous set photos, fans noticed that the new costume featured more leather-like accents on the chest and upper body portion. In the new photo, it can be seen that the new costume will be lighter in color, though it doesn't seem to be as bright as the Flash costume which Barry donned when he traveled to the future last season.
Concept artist Andy Poon has also taken to his Instagram account to share the photo and appears to confirm its authenticity. "Found this on instagram, I did not release this photo, seems legit though! I present you Flash 3.0 @cwtheflash @grantgust #barryallen #speedforce #future #futureflash #upgrade #mayamani #costumedesign #concept #illustration @thisjustinonline," he writes in the caption.
The upcoming season 4 will see Barry facing off against primary villain of the season, The Thinker (Neil Sandilands). Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explained, "He'll finally marry Iris West [Candice Patton], and he'll take on the primary antagonist of season 4, The Thinker. We tend to think of the Flash as an athlete, like a runner."
"So much of his previous seasons have been about training harder, 'I have to run faster,' but he's up against a villain this season that he can't outrun. It's somebody he has to out-think, and it's going to take him and Cisco and Caitlin and a few other surprise people to be able to get one step ahead of the Thinker," he continued.
"The Flash" returns for season 4 on Tuesday, October 10 at 8 P.M. on The CW.
