The Flash shoots scenes for their season 3 cross over episode with cast of Legends Of Tomorrow and Arrow also on set.
THIS BLOG POST IS FOR "THE FLASH" SEASON 3 EPISODE 8. If you have not seen the episode, and do not want to see or read about any spoilers, please do not continue reading or viewing the photos below.
The 3rd annual all-DC Comics programs on The CW Cross Over event is about to happen. This time, 4 shows join the mix, as Supergirl joins on with last years additions to the party Legends Of Tomorrow. Of course they will team up with the original 2 from the first cross over, The Flash & The CW's pioneer of this superhero themed show push, Arrow.
On a night in October, I managed to catch The Flash filming scenes outside B.C. Place (aka - the exterior of S.T.A.R. Labs) for their portion of the cross over. On set was a variety of characters from 3 of the 4 shows. From Legends Of Tomorrow was Mick Rory (Heatwave) & Sara Lance (White Canary). From Arrow was Oliver Queen (The Green Arrow), John Diggle (Spartan) & Thea Queen (Speedy) and from The Flash was Barry Allen (The Flash) and Wally West (Kid Flash).
While I was told that ALL the actors of these characters were going to be on set the night of this shoot, I cant confirm ever seeing some of them. I saw Grant Gustin, Stephen Amell and Keiynan Lonsdale at various points. But whether or not Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, David Ramsey & Willa Holland ever were on set the night I was there is unknown. I certainly didnt stay for the whole shoot, as it was dark, cold and the only vantage point was from a bridge sidewalk nowhere near anything. MOST of the scenes I saw shot consisted of the stunt team doing work, with Grant, Stephen and Keiynan coming in for the required close up scenes.
There seemed to be a lot going on, and frankly I didnt make a lot of sense of what I saw. I know at one point the Green Arrow & The Flash are tossed thru the air, and another time Kid Flash gets tossed thru the air. But what exactly caused all the chaos, I dont know.
The 4 show Cross Over event starts Monday November 28th on Supergirl, followed by The Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday & finishing on Legends Of Tomorrow in Thursday December 1st, all on The CW.

The Flash shoots scenes in downtown Vancouver for tonights big crossover event with Arrow & Legends Of Tomorrow cast
THIS BLOG POST IS FOR EPISODE 208 OF "THE FLASH". This is the three show Crossover event episode with Arrow & Legends Of Tomorrow.
If you have not seen this episode and want to avoid possible spoilers, do not continue reading the post or viewing the photos.
As you are all aware by now, tonight The Flash will air the 1st half of a 2 part triple cross over episode with Arrow, and featuring cast from their upcoming combined spin-off Legends Of Tomorrow.
A few weeks ago, I caught them in downtown Vancouver shooting scenes for this very episode. On set this day was Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon from The Flash. Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen from Arrow. Along with Falk Hentschel and Ciara Renee as Carter Hall and Kendra Saunders.
There wasnt a lot to the scene that had the 5 of them together in it. They all just were walking along down a staircase. However, after Barry & Oliver part off from the scene, theres a scene where Carter & Kendra share a hug as Cisco awkwardly lurks around waiting for it to end. Then Carter leaves, leaving Cisco and Kendra alone. Cisco then presents Kendra with a pendant, and she eventually reaches out & kisses Cisco.... and thats it. That was the end of the scene there. After they wrapped there, My friends & I managed to get Ciara & Falk to sign some autographs, while a little fan got his photo with Carlos at his transportation vehicle. Grant was telling everyone he was quite sick that day, so he avoided interacting with anymore.
Later that evening, they filmed a scene at a location near the original location, with Grant, Stephen, Falk & Ciara. It was apparently on a roof top, but I never did find out for sure. After that, Stephen Amell came out and met a few fans there & chatted for a bit before heading off.

The Flash shoots scenes for episode 122 with Grant Gustin, Tom Cavanagh, Robbie Amell and a Guest Star in a VERY Spoilery Outfit.
THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 122 OF "THE FLASH" If you have not seen the episode and do not want to view or read any potential spoilers for the show, do not continue reading the blog post, or viewing the photos below.
Wednesday night the cast and crew of the hit DC Comics superhero show The Flash took over the entire B.C. Place Stadium building and grounds. Shooting started early in the day with several cast members inside the stadium. I never saw anyone but Jesse L. Martin go in or out, but another fan tweeted about seeing Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker & Wentworth Miller leaving.
In the early evening crews moved outside to an entranceway on the eastern side of the building. There they had a large crane and several cars parked on the ground, giving the illusion that the walkway was in fact a parking lot outside of S.T.A.R. Labs. The crane then hoisted a stunt man in full Reverse Flash attire up several stories, before he was dropped down into a pile of awaiting mats while attached to a safety harness. Then another stunt man followed, doing the same jump in a dark black outfit and beige vest. I never got any shots of that one, as I wasn't ready for the 2nd stunt mans fall.
After a couple of other scenes back on the ground, out of the way of any viewers because of the unique angle that the platform holds in comparison to any viewpoint other than the viaduct that goes past it, which the crew, with the permission of the Vancouver Police Department closed off from pedestrians (despite it literally having no safety concerns) while they shot the scenes.
After shooting those scenes, the crew moved to the front of B.C. Place to shoot in Terry Fox Plaza. The unique art work in the plaza of the famed 1 legged runner who ran to raise money for Cancer research gave the set designers an idea, they used the growing in size statues as places to put "S.T.A.R. Labs" signs.
As the evening started to pick up, the cast showed up in a few SUVs. first was 1 that caught me off guard, as Arrow star Stephen Amell arrived wearing some odd clothes. Grant Gustin and Robbie Amell then arrived, with Tom Cavanagh showing up slightly after them.
It didn't take me long to realize Stephen was dressed oddly because he was not dressed like Oliver Queen or "The Arrow" but as a member of the League Of Assassins. I'll even go as far as to say he was dressed like Ra's al Ghul.
This probably had something to do with why the crew, which does already have a lengthy history in their short existence of trying to flex their muscles over watchers & regulars alike even in situations that they clearly have no rights to, doing so often this night. No less than 5 times were the TWO people who were there for any length of time me, and a professional photographer were "asked" (more like "strongly insisted") to move from public spaces despite not being in the view of the cameras.
The scene itself did not reveal TOO much. It seemed to be a face off between Reverse Flash & Ras Arrow Ghul, Firestorm & The Flash. Perhaps the stunt scene I saw earlier is the end product of the battle? Hard to say without seeing more than a few seconds of the filming.
The Flash is on Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.

THIS POST CONTAINS PHOTOS & A BREIF DESCRIPTION OF SCENES SHOT FOR EPISODE 108 "THE FLASH VS ARROW" A FEW WEEKS AGO. If you have not yet seen the episode, and do not want to read or see any possible spoilers from it... please to don't continue reading the article, or viewing the photos
So, as everyone reading this likely knows. Episode 8 of season 3 of Arrow, and season 1 of The Flash will be a cross over episode in which characters from both shows will be featured on each episode, starting with The Flash next Tuesday night & concluding the night after on Arrow.
A few weeks ago, several scenes were shout downtown for The Flash episode, titled "The Flash VS Arrow". I intended to have some of these up sooner, and put up the final batch this week...but I got sidetracked. So, heres 1 whole megapost of pics from the 3 days of shoots.
The 1st day was the only day I saw any members from Arrow on set shooting. Of course, it happened to be THE ARROW. Stephen Amell and his stunt double Simon Burnett were on the set shooting a scene with Grant Gustin & his stunt double Cody Laudan for the episode. I never really got a chance to SEE much of the scene, but it seemed to be some type of confrontation between the two heroes, which makes me think Flash VS Arrow is going to have some friction between the masked men.
The next day saw scenes done in a building that featured Jesse L. Martin as Joe West. I also saw the stunt doubles of Grant Gustin & Stephen Amell around that day, but not sure what the scenes entailed since they were all indoors.
On the final day, they had multiple scenes happen.
First off was a scene where they had The Flash star Grant Gustin running into what seems to be the ONLY bank in Central City (and 1 that seems to have a lot of bad luck). They filmed a couple other scenes in & around the bank with guest star of the week Paul Anthony (aka Roy G. Bivolo aka - Chromo) who did a solo scene a block over earlier in the day that I'm guessing was of him getting ready to enter the bank....then he moved over to the actual bank set where he enters the bank and soon after scenes were shot where a scene like something out of the WWE Royal Rumble took place where everyone in the bank just started fighting each other. I honestly don't know what the scene will look like on camera, but from outside it looked pretty wild & funny.
After the bank scene was shot. Grant Gustin poked his head out the door in his Barry Allen attire, waved at the fans standing across busy Pender Street. Then, in what has so far in the time The Flash has shot here, been a rare occurrence, a few seconds later, came back out and came across the street to meet the handful of fans before he headed off to lunch.
After lunch, the crew & cast returned to a side street around the corner from the bank scene for a night stunt scene involving Grant Gustin, Rick Cosnett & Candice Patton and their stunt doubles.
The scene seems to have The Flash using his body to slow down/stop a car from hitting Eddie Thawne who was standing in the middle of the street. After Eddie jumps out of the way, The Flash comes over to him to confront detective pretty boy as Iris comes running in from the distance. This scene was an interesting one for me, because I never really thought Grant could muster up a menacing volume of speaking, but the verbal tongue lashing he put on Eddie there was quite intense. Needless to say if Iris was close enough to hear his conversation with Eddie, she would HAVE to know its Barry now after what he said, and as loud as he did.
During 1 of the re-positions of the scene and equipment Grant came over to a couple of fans still waiting at the set in the early hours of the morning. He briefly chatted with them, but said he couldn't take photos while in the suit. I asked him if he could once the show airs (it had not aired yet) and he said "maybe".... so far, I haven't had the chance to test that. Shortly after, we were moved back further & I felt there was not much more I probably would see worth sticking around at such a late hour & went home.
The Flash is currently up for several BEST OF TV AWARDS 2014 going on right now HERE.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and CTV in Canada. The Flash/Arrow cross over episodes will air December 2nd for The Flash, December 3rd for Arrow.
