Last night I found the cast & crew of Batwoman in New Westminster filming a couple scenes for an episode. I BELIEVE it was for episode 202, but I dont know that to be for certain.
The first set, at the Anvil Centre in downtown New West, saw the building dressed up to be Gotham General Hospital. A TV crew was there doing a report, and it seemed to be about the line up of people there seemingly waiting for something. That something? An antidote for "Bat Toxin". Yep, Batwoman is writing in a story line about some Bat themed issue that is poisoning people, and people lining up to get a cure to it. Considering the point we are at currently in the world, this seems like a bit risky to me. While there, I saw a Gotham Ambulance, as well as a Hamilton Dynamics truck parked there. Which made me wonder.... who runs them now, since Catherine died. Mary? Someone else?
Last thing I noticed at this location, was that 1 of the transportation vehicles for cast actually had a custom license plate that reads "BAT-WMN". Would be nice if more shows did this lol. Make it easier for me when I am just passing by to know which production it is, without having to stop and look around.
After this scene wrapped, the crew moved about 2 1/2 blocks away to their night shoot location.
For the evening shoot, the crew had moved over to a produce market on 10th street. There they had a scene where a couple of attempted masked up thugs went into the store looking to rob it. Unfortunately for them, someone else was in the store. This would be my first look (and I believe the public as a whole) at Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder, aka... the new Batwoman.
The scene (to the best of my interpretation, gotta remember, they dont always film things in order) seemed to have these two barge into the store, try to rob it, before Ryan throws a bottle at them, causing a scuffle that generates a bang, before Ryan gets tossed across the floor, and the thugs leave without any money, or even their guns.
Is this altercation what inspires her to become Batwoman?
Later, there was a short scene with Ryan still there, and a CROWS guard now also there, and she seems to look at him with a look of confusion or annoyance before she goes over towards where the cash register area is, and the CROWS guard follows suit. Not long after that, they wrapped the night.
So, about the Batsuit. Unless her Batsuit is going to be a blue jacket over an orange shirt, with 1970s yellow & brown pants, and some gold & white Nike shoes..... I am guessing this wasnt it. Maybe next time?
Lastly. This was the first full film set I got to really observe in action. While I had been to a couple of other productions so far, I never really got to see fully how sets are working around the new COVID-19 era restrictions. First observation I made, I was really impressed with the vigilance of the crew to wear their masks at all times. I fully expect to find some slackers in that department, but I never saw any.... or maybe they've already been weeded out since this is week 3 for them now. I also got to see 1 of their coronavirus testing areas at the set (didnt go into it, but saw the precautions needed to be in there), and that as well looks like they really are taking this seriously, as each person who went in was in head to toe PPE just to get their test done. I also got to learn a bit about the "zones" that everyone has now. Each crew member has a different coloured badge, and can only work with people with that same colour badge. As for cast, as soon as their scene was completed, they immediately had masks back on till the next take. There was sanitizer almost everywhere you went. No more just casually going from 1 place to another because it might be most convenient for you. If you arent allowed in a space, you cant go. From what I heard from the few crew I chatted with, it does not seem (yet) to be causing any delays with filming. So hopefully things can remain this smooth throughout. Lastly, 1 crew member when I asked about working with Javicia compared to Ruby, while they didnt comment on Ruby specifically, they did say they love working with Javicia.
So we finally have our 1st look at the future new Batwoman. We get to find out that there is some sort of "Bat Toxin" that people are desperate to get an antidote for. What will all this mean?
In the next couple days, there may be some short video from set to post. Just need time to edit it. So check back later this week for that.
