Grant Gustin Shares Another New Look At The Flash’s Upgraded Suit

A few days ago saw an image of The Flash Season 5 leak online, which caused all kinds of drama and controversy, but now the official look has been released.

The Barry Allen actor dropped the first-look image on Instagram Friday. I took this shot late last night during our night shoot. "Other kids who are build like me and thinner than me should be able to feel the same way". "I truly love this suit", he said. The new suit streamlines the speedster's look and does away with Barry's chin strap. Without his mask, though, this BTS image lets us see the bodysuit a little better and for one thing, it's clear that the new spandex material gives it a different shape than the old leather design and again, looks closer to the body-hugging outfit from the page. Gustin definitely seems to prefer it, too, going by his caption.

Test photos had leaked earlier this week from The CW series revealing that the new season would see its eponymous superhero change to a more comic book-accurate version of his iconic scarlet uniform. Some things need work and they will be worked on.

Riverdale announced at Comic-Con they would be doing a special flashback episode in which the young stars would be playing their own parents.

The Flash returns Tuesday, October 9th on The CW and stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Hartley Sawyer, Danielle Nicolet, Tom Cavanagh, and Jesse L. Martin. That's what pisses me off. "I've had my own journey of accepting it". That's a awful photo that I was unaware was being taken, much less posted.

"There's a double standard where it's ok to talk s- about a dudes body", he continued. Stress is something that ebbs and flows for me throughout a season.
