Especially the Flash costume. Ironhead Studio gave everyone a behind-the-scenes look at the early concept builds for the Flash and Cyborg costumes. Thankfully, they stayed just that. Early concepts.

Let’s take a look.

Here’s a closer look at the Cyborg costume.

Ok, the Cyborg costume doesn’t look too different from the final version. Here’s what it looks like now.

We still see the red on the chest plate, but Ironhead Studio nixed the full face mask. That was a good call. The full face mask almost gives it a Deathstroke vibe. And since Deathstroke is confirmed to be in the standalone Batman movie, it’s probably best to make sure each character stands out as much as possible.

But that Flash costume? Thankfully, it didn’t make the cut. Apparently, it was going to be used during the Batman nightmare sequence in Batman v Superman.

The suit itself looks good, but not for The Flash. Where’s the red?

Mass Effect? Sure. The Flash? Not so much.

Here’s how The Flash will look in Justice League:

Both final suits look much closer to how they are portrayed in comic books. Still, it’s great to get this behind-the-scenes look at the process of bringing comic book characters to life.

Black Panther. Spider-Man. Snake Eyes. Batman. Those are just a few of the characters Ironhead Studio brings to life on the big screen.

Tested chatted with founder Jose Fernandez about all his work back in May. Movie companies often tap the studio because of their incredible helmet work.

Fernandez’s work isn’t limited to movies. Earlier this year, Elon Musk reached out to Fernandez to design a helmet. Yep, the same Elon Musk running SpaceX.

In an interview with Bleep, Fernandez first thought it was for a film. He didn’t know who SpaceX was and just assumed it was another movie gig. Fernandez had just two weeks to present Musk with a space suit.

“I told them I couldn’t do a full suit in two weeks but that I may be able to do a helmet,” Fernandez said. “There were four other companies working on bids as well and at the end of the process, he hated everything except the helmet. I worked with him for six months and at the end of that, we created a suit that they are now reverse-engineering to make functional for flight.”

Now you’ll know the folks behind the badass looking armor the next time you watch a Marvel or DC movie.
