Director Andy Muschietti is continuing to tease The Flash by sharing glimpses of the super-suits worn by the movie’s many heroes on social media. He’s previously revealed the chest emblems of both Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster and Michael Keaton’s Batman, and today he did the same for Sasha Calle’s Supergirl. Calle is getting her big cinematic break with this gig, which will see her serve as the first big-screen incarnation of the Girl of Steel since Helen Slater in 1984. There was a lot of pressure on this film to get her suit right, then, and so far it looks like they managed it.
We’ve only seen the torso of the suit, so it’s currently unclear whether the DCEU Supergirl will go for pants or a skirt, but we can see that it’s very closely connected to the costume worn by Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, with the same Kryptonian symbols decorating the S-shield. The big innovation, though, is the use of red section around the neck and shoulders. Fans are definitely liking what they’re seeing, with #TheFlash trending on Twitter as users react positively to this first glimpse.

This suit tease has led to a few theories developing over which comic book look The Flash movie is influenced by. For one, it could be Kara’s design in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
OH DAMN THEY'RE MIXING THE MAN OF STEEL DESIGN WITH THE CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS ONE ?

Alternatively, Calle’s current short dark hair has put some in mind of the Cir-El Supergirl. So maybe she won’t be playing Kara Zor-El at all.

One thing seems to be certain, though. She must be from the prime DCEU universe like Cavill’s Kal-El.

This team-up would be pretty good too.

Could a look at Batfleck and/or the Reverse-Flash be next?

Either way, Muschietti is doing a darn fine job of getting us hyped for his movie.
