The Flash, a new TV series detailing the small-screen adventures of DC Comics' super-speedster, is coming to CW later this year. The network has just released the first images of Grant Gustin as the title hero in a costume designed by long-time Tim Burton collaborator Colleen Atwood.

Production is scheduled to begin on the show next week.
Made of a darker leather and with a less obtrusive headpiece than in the comics, the new design fits with the show's grittier aesthetic. For comparison, here's a look at artist Bruce Timm's interpretation of the Flash from the Justice League cartoon:
