After months of anticipation -- including a two "Arrow" episodes introducing the character last fall -- The CW's "The Flash" pilot is set to begin production next week, and in advance of that, Warner Bros. Television has released the first photo of star Grant Gustin in costume as the iconic DC Comics superhero.

Though the photo only shows Gustin's head, what's revealed certainly appears to be a faithful adaptation of the character's recognizable and enduring appearance, albeit a darker shade of red than most comic book portrayals. In the two "Arrow" episodes featuring Gustin, he only appeared as The Flash's civilian identity, Barry Allen.

"Arrow" Team Calls Grant Gustin "The Perfect Flash"

The Flash costume was designed by Colleen Atwood, a three-time Academy Award-winner who also designed Stephen Amell's "Arrow" costume. "The Flash" pilot, in contention for a series spot on The CW's 2014-2015 schedule, is executive produced by "Arrow" vets Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter, directed by Nutter and written by Berlanti, Kriesberg and DC chief creative officer and former long-time "Flash" comic book writer Geoff Johns.
