Think back to when you were in high school. Do you remember that whenever you would return from spring break or summer vacation there were always a fair amount of people rocking new hairstyles and whatnot? Or, if you’re a pro wrestler who wants their comeback to be more impactful after sitting on the sidelines for six months or more, you might upgrade your threads. Likewise, The Flash will seemingly employ that very same logic upon his liberation from the Speed Force.
Actually, we have seen Barry Allen’s new costume before, but with a bit of a twist. You see, when he traveled to 2024 last season in “The Once and Future Flash,” he met his future self who happened to be wearing the very same suit we’re discussing today.
And while we’ll no doubt see this getup in various trailers, it’s not quite the same as being able to take in all the details as you would from a photo. Luckily, costume designer Andy Poon is here to save the day with a couple pictures displaying the Scarlet Speedster’s new duds – which we’ve included in the gallery below along with the one that was released earlier this week of Barry’s new beard.

In the first image, we see Barry’s eye-catching new costume adorning the mannequin at S.T.A.R. Labs. What’s funny is that Poon admits to having come across this image on Instagram, but now feels comfortable sharing it himself – and we’re thankful that he did.
As for the second, it’s technically a shot of a collectible, but is no less cool. Here, we see the head and upper chest area of one of Icon Heroes’ soon to be released statues. Already known for making detailed and affordable DC related items, it stands to reason that they may see a surge in pre-orders now.
The Flash returns for its fourth season on Tuesday, October 10 on The CW.
