With a successful TV show already getting critical acclaim and great ratings, the upcoming DC cinematic Universe “The Flash” movie needs to be different enough to not confuse fans, by reaffirming that these universes live separately.
According to a source who talked to Den of Geek one way for the movie version to this is by having a deliberately different more ‘tech-based’ costume.
The source goes on to say the suit has taken inspiration directly from the “Injustice: Gods Among Us” video game, with costume looking more like armour. This would back up what Ezra Miller who will star as The Flash/Barry Allen said last month when he described the costume as “post apocalyptic”.
“The Flash” film will open in 2018 and will be written and directed by Seth Grahame-Smith.
