UPDATED - OCTOBER 20, 2019 - 10:00 PM - Video added to the bottom of one of the scenes described below.
The massive 5 episode, 6 TV show Arrowverse cross over Crisis On Infinite Earths has begun filming in Vancouver.
On this day, Supergirl was shooting a variety of scenes in downtown Vancouver, that also included a short scene for Legends Of Tomorrow's episode that was being piggybacked off their unit to save time & $$.
At 1 location, there were scenes inside the Butcher & Bullock Pub. They shot scenes in there for Supergirl AND Legends. Essentially with the same cast for all of it with 1 slight change between the two shows scenes. The pub was on Earth 1, and in Star City.... but I didnt catch if it had a name.
In the opening scene they shot, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance and Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer (not Superman) were sitting in a pub playing trivia when Audrey Marie Anderson comes in as Harbinger and recruits them for Crisis. This scene was for the Supergirl episode.
The later scene had Ray & Sara still there, but this time David Harewood as J'onn J'onnz was there with the pair, still in the same pub, just with J'onn there now instead of Harbinger. This scene seems like its after Crisis has ended, and maybe the pair were put back where they were found? But why is J'onn there now? This scene was for the Legends Of Tomorrow episode.
I didnt really get a chance to photograph any of the people for that portion as I was busy trying to do my other part of this job there, getting autographs. I did snap a couple quick pics of David going in when he arrived. But that was it from there.
Over at the other set, which was much more public. The early scene, which I missed because I was busy trying to cover off that other location, plus I had to leave for half an hour to cover a non-filming related thing, had a scene I sorely am disappointed to have missed. I saw the rehearsals for the scene, but the on screen actor was not there for it yet, just a stand in, with a large dog. Thankfully local set watcher TheMysciraBound caught the scene, and was generous enough to allow use of some of her photos below.
The original Robin from the Batman TV show in the 1960s. Burt Ward was on set. He was decked out in Robin colours, and I am sure a lot of people want to theorize that hes a retired Robin living the good life walking Ace the Bathound. But I found out, his character name is literally "Burt Ward". He is on Earth 66 (the same year the series debuted... this will be a recurring theme I suspect as we already know 90s Flash came from Earth 90.... and another easter egg in the next scene descriptions below.). He looks up in the sky while walking a dog (no name for the dog was heard), and blurts out "Holy crimson skies...." (there was more, but the person I got the details from didnt hear it all)... and that was it. Burt was done for the day, and possibly the series.
One other detail I can confirm about this scene. It will be in the first few minutes of the episode, as they show things going on with the different earths.
A scene was then done out in the middle of the street at Oceanic Plaza (a very busy & popular filming location) that consisted of Ruby Rose as Batwoman fighting members of a gang in bunny masks. At some point she gets the upper hand, she has a gun type decide pointed at the gang as they are running around being a menace. We then find all the bunny guys on the ground motionless as she moves in towards 1 of them, a bright light appears and Harbinger is there. She tells Batwoman she is needed for the Crisis, and BW chalks her up to just another crazy and throws some batarangs at her, which do absolutely nothing. A few of the Harbinger shots at the beginning come from an anonymous fan who allowed me to use their photos. They had a much better vantage point than I found, so I am grateful for their efforts.
A bit later, they did a stunt, and while they were prepping to do that stunt, on a different part of the area, they did a small quick scene with Robert Wuhl reading a newspaper, and he looks up into the sky. This scene takes place on Earth 89, and if you are confused by why that is, you obviously did not watch the 1989 Batman movie. Robert plays Alexander Knox, a reporter in that movie. I unfortunately was too exhausted to wait out that scene, but I did see them rehearsing it with a stand in sitting on the bench in his place. But it looked like they might be awhile till they were filming it, so I called it a night.
When I have more time this weekend, I may have some video from the Batwoman scenes. But for now, here are photos of the scenes.
Lastly, a little bonus. I am sure some fans want me to talk about the scoop I broke that honestly, crippled my twitter mentions. I'm aware theres a rabid fandom for this show & character, but really, I did not expect anywhere near this impact.
You may have seen this tweet from me....
So, by sheer fluke I stumbled across The Flash filming at a studio that Arrow uses. While much of the crew there were terrific, one particular driver there decided they were going to flash their high beams right at me and a crew member when the cast was leaving theer trailers to get into the vehicle as a way of trying to prevent me from seeing them.
Well joke was on them, because I had actually seen the scene shot in part a couple takes inside the alley way they have at the studio. In it, I saw Matt Ryan as John Constantine, and Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak there with of all peopel Tom Ellis dressed as Lucifer Morningstar. If you are an Arrowverse fan unfamiliar with Lucifer Morningstar, he is a character from a DC Vertigo property named "Lucifer". I also saw David Ramsey at the set, but from the angle I was at, I never actually saw him IN the scene. But there was literally no other reasons he would have been there, so I have to believe he was in the scene from an angle I could not see from the 2/3 of a city block away angle I had. All I know of the scene is, they walk out of a building that has a sign above it that says "hotel". I am sure some want photos. But its a private business, and shooting a scene in there would be at the least, a small problem morally, and depending what argument they wanted to go with, legally... So all I can do is report on it. ONLY reason I reported on it at all, is because of that 1 driver. I was completely willing to let that this slide by since I had no photos of it, but he tried to be a jerk on purpose, so, there it is.
I also found out a couple other scoops this week. HOWEVER.... they are on things I did not witness myself. Thus why I am not including them in this blog post.
