DC seems to be saving their comic book Flash news for Friday’s “New DC Universe – Justice For all” panel, and their TV news after Saturday night’s giant WB TV block featuring Arrow, Flash, Gotham, Legends of Tomorrow and Vixen.
But an exhibit on the convention floor has generated a lot of online discussion. Check out this tweet by @FlashTVNews:
It’s part of a display featuring costumes from Arrow and The Flash, including the Reverse-Flash Costume, Captain Cold’s jacket, Jay Garrick’s helmet and more.
The fact that the circle around the Flash emblem is white, rather than red, has a lot of people speculating that the costume is getting a redesign in Season Two. That’s certainly possible…but it’s also possible that they just put up the version of the Future Flash costume that we saw in the time travel section of the Season One finale.
For what it’s worth, the merchandise and promotional material — including Legends of Tomorrow posters, and a booth wall featuring leads from Arrow, Flash, iZombie, Gotham, Supergirl, Lucifer and Legends of Tomorrow — all feature the red circle we saw throughout Season One.
What do you think? Would you like to see the TV show switch to a white symbol for season two, or do you like the distinct look for the character?
Update: At Saturday’s press conference Grant Gustin confirmed that the costume is changing: “That’s a thing, yeah, I shot in the suit on my first or second day of filming in the red emblem. But, yeah, I will be in that suit pretty soon.”
