With The Flash ending its third season on a shocking cliffhanger, many have wondered what will become of the Speed Force-trapped Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin), as well as the rest of Team Flash, when the show returns in October.
And judging by new set photos, Barry might make his way out of the Speed Force sooner than later – and with some new duds as well.
Set photos captured by YVRShoots.com show Gustin on set during July 28th, wearing what appears to be a new Flash suit. This comes after Gustin shared a photo of part of the suit on Instagram, and spoke about his desire for a new costume during an interview with ComicBook.com at San Diego Comic-Con.

Interestingly, the suit is appears to be almost identical to the suit worn by the 2024 version of Barry Allen, which was briefly seen in last season’s ‘The Once and Future Flash’.
It’s safe to assume that when the suit is shown in Season 4, it won’t be worn by 2024!Barry, as his dark future time was erased after the defeat of Savitar. If anything, this feels like a case of Team Flash not fearing the future, similarly to when Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) gave Barry some foretold suit upgrades in Season 2.
Either way, Barry’s newest upgrade is certainly welcomed by quite a few fans, and will be fun to see outside of the dark aesthetic of the 2024 timeline.
