DC’s the Flash is easily one of the more recognizable characters that the studio has on their roster. He’s quick on his feet with a fast tongue and equally as courageous when the time calls for a hero. We got our first look at the Flash in 2016, and his eye-catching appearance was enough to set the precedence for what would come in the full-length Justice League film later down the line. His signature costume is one of the Flash’s highlights from the film as well, so, let’s get to know the designer behind it.
The original design work for the Flash, introduced first in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, was created by Jerad S Marantz who “has been working in the Film, Game and Television industries for over fifteen years,” according to his background description on Concept Art Workshop.
The desctiption reads, “Marantz started his career at an early age interning for Special FX houses. Trying a little of everything enabled him to narrow his focus to character/creature design. His acquired skills in sculpture, painting, illustration, Zbrush, and Photoshop all aide his unique sense of design.”
It continued, “Marantz’ s many Film credits include: Avengers: Infinity War, Justice League, Deadpool 2, Guardians of the Galaxy vol1 and 2, XMEN : Age of Apocalypse, Batman vs. Superman, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, West World, Grimm, American Horror Story, Gears of War 4, Clash of the Titans (Lead Character Designer), Sucker Punch (Lead Character Designer), Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, Green Lantern, Avatar, Snow White and the Huntsman, GI Joe: Retaliation, The Amazing Spiderman, Riddick 3 …ect.”
