Last week I caught the crew of Supergirl working on their portion of the 4 episode Arrowverse crossover episode. After some earlier scenes including their cast, they did a scene later in the day wth members of The Flash and Arrow for a scene at a wedding.... but who was getting married?
Early in the day, before they started shooting, they had changed the sign at St Andrews Wesley Church to read
THE WEDDING OF
BARRY ALLEN & IRIS WEST
TO THE HAPPY COUPLE"
After I tweeted that, they changed the sign literally 10 minutes later, changing Barry Allen & Iris west to be a jumbled mixture of their letters mixed up & some placed upside down. Of course, when they went to go shoot the scenes, they had to change them back anyways.... so dont know why they even bothered.
Well, unless youve been disconnected from the internet for the past month or so, you likely already have seen the promotional poster for the cross over event featuring right smack dab in the middle, Barry Allen & Iris West in a wedding ceremony.
On this day, they filmed scenes for Barry & Iris ATTEMPTING to get married.... yes, I said attempting. See, this was their first attempt, which gets stopped after an attack by villains. Will they EVER get married?? That answer can be found in this blog post on The Flash blog section.
On set for this shoot was The Flash stars Candice Patton as Iris West in her wedding dress, Jesse L Martin as Joe West, and Patrick Sabongui as David Singh. Also on set was Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak. So where are the rest of the expectant characters, namely Barry Allen? Probably battling whatever forces are trying to stop this wedding.
The scene they shot was Iris, Joe, David & Felicity guiding wedding guests out of the church as flashes of light went off inside the church. They did 3 total takes of the scene, then moved on. After that, they did a stunt running scene with some of the guests where they were pretending to dodge, or get hit by things falling from the sky.
