'The Flash' maybe on hiatus, but that hasn't stopped Grant Gustin from keeping DC fans entertained and giving them something to look forward to. The actor took to Instagram to post a picture of a black Flash suit and honestly, it looks bloody damn awesome!  And even better, Gustin loves it too! 

He captioned the image: "I know there’s no new Flash for a while, so I thought I'd share this. This was from a fitting for the Season 5 suit during our hiatus between Seasons 4 and 5. I have like 30 pictures from this day because I was so excited. I flew to Vancouver for about 4-5 hrs for this fitting and then home to LA the same day. This was before they had the actual fabric for the suit, hence the black. After I saw it like this I kinda wanted a black Flash suit though..."

Fans on Instagram gave it a thumbs-up as well with some calling it the coolest thing ever. "Omg, that looks so cool", "Give us the black flash suit CW!", "I absolutely love it!" were some of the largely common responses. The image at the moment has over 900,000 likes and we're sure it'll only increase over time. 

As far as the comic background goes, a Black Flash does exist. Created by writers Grant Morrison and Mark Millar, and artist Ron Wagner, the character had cameos in The Flash (vol. 2) #138 (June 1998), before appearing in full in The Flash #141 (September 1998).

The character basically plays the same role as death for those who possess speed on the DC Universe. On the episode front, 'The Flash' fans, unfortunately, will have to wait for a good couple of weeks.

Titled 'So Long and Good Night', the official synopsis reads: "After Black Hole hires Rag Doll (guest star Troy James) to kill Joe (Jesse L Martin), Singh (guest star Patrick Sabongui) suggests he go into Witness Protection but Joe refuses to stop investigating Carver (guest star Eric Nenninger).  While investigating Carver with Cisco (Carlos Valdes), Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) runs into Sue (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss). Iris (Candice Patton) becomes suspicious of Eva (guest star Efrat Dor)."

'The Flash' Season 6 will be back on April 21 at 8 pm on The CW.
