It seems Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer) will be getting a proper supersuit sooner rather than later. In the preview for next week’s episode, Ralph is clearly seen wearing the simple gray costume Cisco designed for him a few months ago. But photos of the next episode released by The CW confirm that the character will get a more fashionable look which is consistent with the overall Ramon design aesthetic.
It even sort of echos the proper Elongated Man bodysuit with the stripes and the piece kit taking the place of the EM logo over the left side of his chest. Which is definitely good enough for now. I’ve been critical of The CW’s costume design of late thanks to that weird black get up Mon-El (Chris Wood) wore in the most recent episode of Supergirl, but it seems even that will be corrected in upcoming episodes.
It’s a little blurry thanks to the video itself, but that is a red-and-blue one-piece costume with cape. When compared to the black version, I’ll take this any day. Now can we get Brainy (Jesse Rath) to a greener turquoise skin tone, please?
I kid, of course. Both Supergirl and The Flash have been pretty faithful to the characters, even when they get massive overhauls. But Ralph’s first costume and Mon-El’s initial Legion uniform certainly gave me pause. Glad to see the makers of both shows had a bigger plans in mind.
Supergirl airs Mondays, while The Flash airs Tuesdays, on The CW.
