Comic book fans are starting to get a clearer picture of what 2018’s The Flash is going to look like. For a year now, we’ve known that The Stanford Prison Experiment’s Ezra Miller will be playing Barry Allen on the big screen. Then we learned earlier this year that 21 Jump Street writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller penned the treatment. Finally, it was reported on Monday that Pride and Prejudice and Zombie writer Seth Grahame-Smith is in negotiations to direct the feature. Behind the scenes, things are shaping up.

However, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the DC Extended Universe’s interpretation of the Flash -- namely, what his costume will look like -- but we may have just gotten a few hints in the wardrobe department. Den of Geek has posted several tidbits of what The Flash movie is aiming to have the Scarlet Speedster’s costume look like. While the site acknowledges that things could change over the next three years, for now here are the suit upgrades they say we can expect to see, and why they are necessary.

Needs To Be Different From The TV Show

The Flash, which began its second season on The CW earlier this week, is without a doubt one of the most popular comic book shows on television. Part of its success is its willingness to embrace many of the standard superhero tropes, including having Barry Allen wearing a costume that’s adjusted, but still faithful to what his comic book counterpart wears. While movie Flash's suit undoubtedly will retain several classic elements, The Flash filmmakers are trying to avoid comparisons with the "well-received" TV costume designed by Colleen Atwood. In other words, you won’t be seeing movie Flash wearing a repeat of the "burgundy leather outfit" that Grant Gustin dons each week.
