Don’t blink: The first image from The CW’s superhero project “The Flash” has been released, featuring Grant Gustin in costume as the titular speedy hero.
The costume was designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, whose credits include “Alice in Wonderland,” “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Chicago.”
Based on DC Comics characters, “The Flash” — which is being produced by Warner Bros. Television — tells the story of scientist Barry Allen, who’s transformed into the fastest man alive by a freak accident. “Arrow” team Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter are executive producing the pilot, with Berlanti and Kreisberg writing along with DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns. Nutter is directing.
Production on the pilot begins this week.
