The Flash, Arrow Renewed Early, So Here Is Firestorm's Costume

Flash vs Arrow

The CW's hit series won't be relegated to re-runs anytime soon. Get it? Runs?

Great news for people who, like me, are convinced the CW has secretly figured out how to do the DC universe better than the people in charge of the DC films! The network confirmed over the weekend that it has already renewed The Flash for a second season, despite the fact that it's still less than halfway through its first. (Via Deadline.)

The decision makes absolute sense of course. The Flash has been a critical and ratings success for the network - the pilot was even the most watched television episode in CW history, with a total of 13 million views, including video on demand. Further, it has maintained a healthy average of about 4.5 million viewers since then. More interestingly, it does slightly better than parent show Arrow, not a bad feat considering the history of concurrently-aired spinoffs.

Speaking of, Arrow was also renewed for a fourth season, guaranteeing that fans of what is currently the most satisfying-ever incarnation of the DC universe will get to live in almost sybaritic joy for another full year.

I'm obviously thrilled, as you all should be, and to celebrate, let's have a look at costumes we'll be seeing in upcoming episodes of Arrow and The Flash. (Via IGN) The costumes were seen during a Television Critics Association press tour, and reveal how both Heat Wave and Firestorm will appear on The Flash, and how the new Black Canary will look on Arrow. Enjoy.

I'm really enjoying these shows so far, so I am really glad that they got renewed for another season. I wonder if these rumours about an Atom series are true.

Not necessarily Atom: could be Firestorm that gets his own series.

Based on the quality of Arrow and Flash I would be happy with either.

Before that though we get a Vixen animated show for their digital role out. Yeah. An animated show that takes place in the same universe as this and its Vixen. How cool is that?

I'm not sure Canary has enough buckles.

Yes, less buckles, more guns and pouches

The Firestorm costume looks pretty nice... not so much for the Heat Wave outfit.

No poofy sleeves? FIRESTORM RUINED FOREVER.

I remember when a coworker told me to watch Arrow. I was like, "eh... I love comics, but how good could it be". I stuck it out and it turns out better than most DC movies in the last... ever. Then Flash just blows my mind with how good they have made it. Something interesting is always happening in that show. I can't wait for this hiatus to be over.

It's not really that much of a secret. Remember the CW used to be the WB. They have had a lot of luck with putting this material of on the small screen. The WB was responsible for it's fair share of the DC Animated Universe. Also, despite what people like to say about it, Smallville was a success. And I do think Smallville did a better job with Superman then the recent movies. I think the biggest issue with the movies is that Warner Bothers refuses to let the film makers and everyone else interact. Most of the small screen stuff does turn out to be decent.

I think first we need to see how Atom turns out. I suspect we can look forward to that while

Those silly buckles are a big improvement on her usual outfit.

There was one Birds of Prey story where the Penguin hallucinates a bunch of heroines into tacky stripper outfits, and hers is exactly the same, but with a top hat and monocle. Um...

I hope that Black Canary will have her sonic scream attack and not those silly little noisemakers.

I'm not sure Canary has enough buckles.

Looks like this will be the first time in my life I ever find Firestorm interesting. (I didn't even like the Gail Simone series about him. That's saying something, what with me being Scandinavia's biggest Gail Simone fan.)
