A new piece of Justice League concept art has surfaced online showcasing the Flash's homemade suit. The next installment in Warner Bros' burgeoning DC Extended Universe looks to unite the world's finest heroes - Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and the Flash (Ezra Miller) - against the villainous Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) and his army of Parademons.
Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman have already had their origin stories told on the big screen, whereas the other three Leaguers have yet to see their stories grace the big screen. One of the main characters that Justice League introduces audiences to will be Barry Allen, aka the Flash, who's recruited by Bruce Wayne to join his superhero team. Aside from Bruce recruiting Barry, the Scarlet Speedster's costume has been glimpsed multiple times throughout the Justice League trailers, as well as in various other marketing materials - but now fans can take an even closer look at the superhero costume.
Concept art showcasing Barry Allen's homemade superhero costume appeared on Twitter earlier today, providing fans with a full-body view of the suit. The concept art (below) was designed by Michael Wilkinson and illustrated by Ian Joyner. Although the actual Flash suit heavily resembles the concept art, the image appears more fitted compared to the suit that Miller wears in the film. Check it out:

The above photo showcases the costume that audiences have seen Barry wear throughout all of the film's marketing material; however, it's worth noting that Barry will reportedly wear another costume designed by Wayne Tech at some point in the movie as well, one that falls in-line more with the flick's original, more comic-accurate Justice League concept art that was revealed last year. Still, despite being gifted a second suit, Barry primarily wears the superhero costume that he created himself in his not-so-secret lair.
Aside from the costume's overt differences from the comics, one of the main things that the character's live-action costume hasn't incorporated from the source material yet is the Flash ring. In the comics, Barry's suit is stored inside his ring. However, that little gimmick doesn't translate well into live-action; therefore, the creatives behind the upcoming blockbuster have chosen to omit the feature altogether.
In addition to introducing audiences to the Scarlet Speedster, Justice League will also briefly acquaint moviegoers with Barry Allen's life and family (though his girlfriend, Iris West, has reportedly been excised from the film), which will be further explored in his highly anticipated solo film, Flashpoint. But first, he'll need to help his fellow super friends defeat the New Gods in Justice League this November.
