‘Justice League’ Movie: First Look At Flash’s and Cyborg’s Original Costume Concept That Didn’t Make The Cut
Warner Bros. continues to tease fans by releasing new information on the highly-anticipated and talked-about "Justice League" movie. The film brings together DC Comics' prized superheroes in one theatrical spectacle.
Costume design is perhaps one of the most thought-about aspects of film making. After all, it's that one element that puts the actor in character physically and visually. Costume designs go back and forth through several phases of editing and alteration before the final output makes it way to the movie, and to give a sneak peek into "Justice League," Ironhead Studio shared a few costume designs for Flash and Cyborg that didn't make the cut.
The photo, first seen on Flickering Myth, gave a first-look at the initial prototype of Flash's and Cyborg's costume.
The original concept for Flash's costume is particularly more modern than how his comic book counterpart or the TV series version of himself looks. The suit, which was originally considered for Ezra Miller's cameo appearance in "Batman v Superman," looks more like a bulky armor with a heavy-looking helmet. It definitely didn't scream Flash. If we were to consider Flash's primary ability, which is his super speed, the suit would just drag him down or weaken his strength.
Flash's costume, as seen on the first "Justice League" trailer, is more toned done. Although it's still more modern than the speedster's uniform in the comics, it is more streamlined to fit his abilities, plus it comes in bright red.
The original idea for Cyborg's outfit, on the other hand, would put him inside a full, robotic face mask and robot-looking suit. Unlike the final suit where his half of his human face is masked with metal, the original prototype would have his face fully covered and he would almost look like a villainous robot than a superhero.
According to /FILM, Ironhead Studio is also the same design company that worked on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Thor," "TRON: Legacy" and "The Avengers."
"Justice League" will premiere in theatres on Nov. 17, 2017. According to the official synopsis, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince work together to form a team of metahumans that would defeat an even greater threat.
