The Flash is just over two months away, and popular digital artist BossLogic has redesigned Grant Gustin’s new superhero suit for the series ahead of its return.
Glee alum Grant Gustin made his debut as The Flash in a season two episode of Arrow that aired in December 2013. This was the first time the Scarlet Speedster was on a live-action television series since John Wesley Shipp played Barry Allen in 1990 on CBS. Now, Grant Gustin’s The Flash is racing towards its sixth season on The CW. BossLogic recently took to Twitter to share an awesome piece of fan art for season six, featuring Grant Gustin in a redesigned suit with the chinstrap that his character sports in the comics. Check out the artwork below.

The CW dropped the first official trailer for The Flash season six during San Diego Comic-Con, giving fans a first look at Grant Gustin’s return as Barry Allen and the show’s new villain, Bloodwork, played by Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy. The trailer includes footage from the upcoming season, with Ramamurthy performing a voiceover as Bloodwork.
Aside from working on The Flash, Grant Gustin will soon be seen in Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The movie has a massive cast and will feature cameos from many Arrowverse actors. Gustin’s role in the movie is being kept under wraps.
What do you think of the redesign? Are you a fan of the added chinstrap and the longer lightning bolts on Grant Gustin’s suit for The Flash? Let us know in the comments!
The Flash season six premieres this October, with the series becoming The CW’s main DC Comics drama and Barry Allen seemingly leading the other Arrowverse superheroes forward after Arrow completes its final 10-episode run this fall. Season six is shrouded in secrecy, but the creative team is said to be casting a “socially awkward” scientist to appear opposite Grant Gustin. Filming is currently underway.
The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
The Flash airs on Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Grant Gustin series!
