‘The Flash’: John Wesley Shipp On Bringing His Original Costume Back

The Flash The Present Mark Hamill John Wesley Shipp

John Wesley Shipp thinks there might be a chance we could see him suit up in his original costume on The Flash if the fans can get a movement going behind it.

Shipp said this at DragonCon, which Heroic Hollywood’s very own Jeff Grantz is covering this weekend. Here is his tweet with Shipp’s full quote:

Fans know that Shipp played The Scarlet Speedster in the 1990s television adaptation of The Flash. While we have seen Shipp suited up as Jay Garrick, the original Barry Allen costume from his first DC television turn has yet to make an appearance.

Seeing as Mark Hamill’s turn as The Trickster was brought back from the original series, perhaps a costume wouldn’t be such a hard thing to pull off? If you want to see it, be sure and get tweeting, and as always follow Heroic Hollywood for all the latest updates.

You can read the synopsis for The Flash season four below.

Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.

The Flash Season 4 will premiere on October 10 at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW.
