The CW's TV version of The Flash has become a crossover hit, but while the TV series and its hero have become iconic, there's competition looming on the horizon, as the Justice League movie will introduce actor Ezra Miller as the DC Films' version of The Flash, with all the blockbuster movie budget and special effects that go along with it.
So far, DC Comics fans have been generally pleased with the look of Miller's Flash movie costume, which has once again prompted discussion about the look of TV Flash (actor Grant Gustin), and whether or not his iconic scarlet costume is really up to snuff.
Comicbook.com had a chance to speak with The Flash cast (including Gustin) at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, and it turns out that the actor who has to wear the costume of the Scarlet Speedster is one of the most adamant about that costume looking good!
Speaking to us at SDCC (as you can watch above), Grant Gustin had something to say about his current Flash costume - in relation to the current storyline, where Barry has entered The Speed Force to fill the void left by Savitar: "If Barry gets out of the Speed Force, I think a new suit would be good."
The rest of the cast seemed to echo the sentiment that it time for Barry to suit up in a new costume - even if they couldn't agree on what that costume should be. Show producer Todd Helbring was put on the spot, on camera, to deliver something that fans (and apparently the cast) all want.
The Flash TV costume didn't get the best reception when first glimpsed in behind-the-scenes photos, but on camera, in motion, it has gotten a pass. As stated, however, the movie version of the character - with his high quality costume and visual effects, is making the TV counterpart start to look and feel a bit dated.
As for what kind of costume upgrade the show should do (or can afford), we leave that up to you fans to discuss!
