When almost wasn’t quite good enough.
Spurred by the success of its competitor Marvel, DC is eager to stay in the rat race of Superhero revivals. Although tons of projects have been announced, only a few have actually made it to theaters, and really only Wonder Woman has been DC’s real success.
In the most recent DC revival, Justice League, we saw the official introductions of characters like Aquaman, Cyborg, and Flash. The latter played by Ezra Miller and a new concept image recently posted on Instagram shows off a very different costume for the Scarlet Speedster than what we saw in Batman vs. Superman. Check it out.
Thoughts? Artist Jerard S. Marantz posted this concept model on his Instagram and we can’t help but wonder if we will see this costume brought to life in the upcoming The Flash movie. Currently in production hell, this live-action film hopes to give DC the reset it so desperately needs.
First introduced as a smart yet inexperienced young metahuman, Barry Allen struggled with his naivety and lack of battle experience. Maybe this new costume design is a sign of things to come as the DC universe grows and, fingers crossed, Barry Allen. With Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill rumored to be leaving their roles as Batman and Superman, DC may have to start investing in its other established heroes like Flash and Cyborg. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to Ezra Miller’s Flash, and what costume the young hero wears on his next adventure.
The next installment in the DCEU is James Wan’s Aquaman, set to premiere December 21st, 2018.
