WB posted up a new promotional picture for THE FLASH season 2, and I immediately noticed something was different.  Honestly, it took me a few minutes to figure out what, and I had to bring up a picture of the costume from season 1 (on the left) to figure it out.

If you look at the lightning bolt on the chest, they changed the circle around the lightning bolt from red to white to bring it more in line with the comics.  This might be the first time in history that a TV show was changed to be more like the comic, than the other way around.  To be honest, I actually kind of like the red a little better, but this still looks great.

OH!  And in case you missed it, Stephen Amell had posted an image on his Facebook feed a few weeks ago showing Ollie is getting a new costume for the season 4 of ARROW.  Amell tagged it "The Green Arrow" suggesting that the character will finally get taking on his comic code name.  It sure beats calling him The Hood or The Arrow.
