    I thought it was great, too, though I never got into the red boots and the sculpted muscle look feels pretty dated. I kind of hated the current suit until I saw it in the Don't Blink teaser and I think it really works in motion. It's a nice counterpart to the Arrow suit as well. It could use some fine tuning but it's grown on me.

    Likewise :).

    I've actually seen some comic art of the live-action suit, particularly by artist Francis Manapul, that look pretty great :D.

    Considering who's showing up, and the more comic book feel of the series, I'm hoping for some great costumes from the future heroes and the Rogues ;).

    He has the cold gun! And the shades! And the parka :D!!!

    Can't wait to see how he looks once he has the hood on ;).

    Some new info from a TV Guide interview and a press event:

    THE FLASH Producers Won't 'Wait Around' on Story Ideas | Newsarama.com

    Details On How Public Reacts To THE FLASH, 'Reverse-Flash' And Avoiding A "Freak Of The Week"

    - The mystery of what happened to Barry's mother, and the identity of the Big Bad (likely Reverse-Flash), will be revealed over the course of the series.

    - There are definite plans for Firestorm and Gorilla Grodd.

    - Flash will start being called by his codename later in the season, and eventually will have this big debut to the people of Central City (maybe while fighting a Rogue?) and afterwards the city will come around to him and start calling him The Flash.

    - Not all the villains will be Metahumans, some like Captain Cold, Heatwave, and Pied Piper will use technology.

    So far, pretty good. I hope he'll be shown to be a credible threat for the fastest man alive.

    A piece of promo art for the staff has surfaced, showing the Reverse Flash.

    Reverse-Flash looks awesome, definitely looking forward to when the show finally gets around to his fight with Flash :D.

    Can't wait for a better look at that pic :).

    The Flash suit actually looks more like the New 52 suit with that lightning surrounding the suit :cool:.

    I could imagine Zoom to be either Thawne guy from the precinct, or a different Thawne.

    Yeah, considering the time travel aspect of Flash is probably going to become a bigger element going forward and especially as we get more Reverse-Flash, Booster or even Rip Hunter popping up seems like a must. Considering the tone of the series, Booster would be a good fit I think :).

    Yes! I felt a modern Flash series without Garrick just seems wrong. Now, to get really geeky, it is very possible they could get Johnny Thunder in LoT, but this pleases me enough.

    I thought it was extremely likely to happen once we saw his helmet pop out of the time portal, but it's still awesome to know Jay will be appearing in season 2 :D.

    Can't wait to see who ends up playing him and how he'll factor into the show. Maybe Barry pops into an Earth-2 styled dimension featuring the Justice Society, and with Jay as the Flash, complete with 40's stylings :cool:?

    Now I'm waiting for some Wally, Mirror Master, and Hal Jordan news ;).

    The one guy for us geeks I can imagine is The Greatest American Hero himself, William Katt. He's only slightly older than Barry's father in reality, but in universe he should be around 80 or 90.

    Depends how they want to do it, but Jay shoulda been running with the JSA back in 1940's.
