By the set decoration it was clear, they were filming a Christmas time themed episode.
No shocker, in Central City even Santa Claus isn't a nice guy. But who is Santa in Central City? Why the Trickster of course. Star Wars icon Mark Hamill was in town to reprise his role, along with Spartacus star Liam McIntyre reprising his role as Weather Wizard.
The pair shot a scene with Grant Gustin as The Flash. In the scene Gustin is hold what looks like an oversized Sonic Screwdriver, which the Weather Wizard coaxes out of the Scarlet Speedster before blasting The Flash to who knows where while The Trickster sits by reveling in the events.
Getting a Mark Hamill guest spot just a week & 1/2 before Star Wars VII The Force Awakens hits theatres cant be a bad feather in the cap of the comic book hero series.
A video of the scene has been added below the photos.
As Mr. Hamill walked to his trailer, I caught up to him before he got close to the crowd and he happily signed my Star Wars photo, featured here on my new Instagram account.
As he got near the trailers, the crowd noticed & stopped him. Mark stopped, took the time to make sure everyone got him....then went to grab his lunch. After getting his lunch he went inside, ate, came back out, and signed MORE items for the waiting crowd and took more photos.
Spartacus star Liam McIntyre also stopped for fans. He at one point walked past the mass of people standing around Mr. Hamill and just had a look of interest and maybe a bit of admiration for the way the year old handled all of the attention.
