The CW has unveiled the new Flash costume for Season 2 of their breakout hit. The new suit was created by Arrow’s costume designer Maya Mani, who is also responsible for designing the costumes for Arsenal (Colton Haynes), Black Canary (Katie Cassidy), Speedy (Willa Holland) and Ray Palmer’s A.T.O.M. (Brandon Routh) on the CW’s other hit series. This sneak peak comes just 8 days after Arrow’s new costume for season 4 was revealed. The notable difference is the new Flash costume compared to the old is the white circle as opposed to the red from the first season, which is a nod at the comic book version. Check out the new Flash costume below:
The Flash follows a young and awkward crime scene investigator named Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). As a boy, Barry witnesses an unbelievable event that led to the death of his mother and the imprisonment of his father. Fourteen years after the incident that changed his life, he now works for the Central City Police Department, drawn to solving the unsolvable. One night, Allen is struck by lightning from an experiment gone horribly wrong. 9 months later Allen wakes from a coma to discover that he has the ability to move at superhuman speeds. Barry joins forces with Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), the scientist responsible for the failed experiment and vows to use his new found powers to protect the people of Central City.
