The Flash Season 5: Official Costumes Released!


The Flash is up for Season 5 and now not very far away from the season’s premier, some images of Flash Suit from the newest season were leaked. Although, the trailer for Flash was released in SDCC this year, the official costume reveal wasn’t done in the SDCC which made fans think that maybe the suit will be changed. Since The Flash began, the suit that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) wears in the show has changed slightly season to season, as the character himself has grown and developed as a hero. The suits also change as the Flash’s team build more impressive suits for their leader, equipped with new and helpful gadgetry for him to use in the field.

Season 5 will also see some changes made into the suit and therefore when the photos were leaked, they seemed a pretty good real deal. Fans were already hyped to see the full costume.

Now, however, Gustin has shown the suit as it should have been seen from the start, in an ‘official’ (and much better looking) photo via his Instagram. The photo was posted on Friday, August 10, with the simple caption ‘First OFFICIAL look at Barry’s new threads for season 5’. The suit itself appears to be the same as the one in the leaked photo, without the leather, and with far more of the hero’s chin exposed.

The capitalised word ‘Official’ hints that the costume which was in the leaked photos is not the one the fans are going to see in this season. There are much details in the costume Grant released on the Instagram. However there are some differences as well, No leather and more of chin is exposed in the official costume.

Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?
