Warner's big screen version of The Flash to have a more 'tech-based' costume

Since Warner Bros.' big screen movie version of The Flash won’t be out until 2018, there’s nothing to really sink our teeth into news-wise yet. Or is there?

Unless you count the recent shocking announcement that Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) will be making his directorial debut on this BIG BLOCKBUSTER OF A MOVIE, and that he’ll also be penning the script based on a story originally written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. This could go sideways faster than you can say "Josh Trank."

However, the good folks over at Den of Geek have learned, thanks to an inside source, that the makers behind the superhero movie have a specific look in mind as they’re designing the Scarlet Speedster’s outfit to avoid “any comparison to the well-received TV version.”

Because the TV costume already looks totally awesome, they're looking to create a more “tech-based” costume that will look different from the one designed by Colleen Atwood for The CW’s The Flash. And so we're told the movie’s version will look more “like armour.”

Considering that not too long ago Flash actor Ezra Miller apparently spilled the beans regarding the look of his costume when he described it as “post-apocalyptic,” the news seems to fit the bill.

Which kinda sorta reminds me of the futuristic-looking suit Barry Allen wears in the videogame Injustice: Gods Among Us. Not only does it really look cool, it somewhat fits Ezra Miller’s “post-apocalyptic” comparison, as well as an insider’s description of a “tech-based” costume. 

It would also appear that Ezra Miller's Barry Allen will now be something of a “tech geek,” along with spending his days as a forensic scientist.

What do you think? Would you like to see The Flash movie's outfit look similar to the one in Injustice: Gods Among Us?
