Supergirl major shoots scenes for the season finale with Melissa Benoist, Tyler Hoechlin and Mark Gibbons.
The cast & crew of Supergirl shot scenes at Robson Square over two nights with a few of the shows bigger stars & guest stars. On the first night, they shot a couple scenes involving the shows lead Melissa Benoist, with the shows most notable recurring guest star Tyler Hoechlin as the Man Of Steel, Superman. Also on set was new addition to the cast Mark Gibbons as General Zod.
I posted a youtube video of Melissa shooting a scene with Tyler earlier.
But here are some of the photos from that same night as well, including some from other scenes.
The night started off with a stunt where the crew blew up a Police car. A little later they had Melissa come on as Supergirl and do a scene where she jumps off the car. When she first got up on the car, she noticed the couple dozen fans standing on a higher level balcony over the set & waved at all of them before getting back to work.
A bit later, Zod did a scene where he angrily looks off towards something. I never quite got the idea what he was exactly looking at, but his intense, intimidating look, and voice which is just as intense & and intimidating clearly showed Zod wasnt messing around.
They then moved to doing a scene of the stairs where Supergirl is ducking and trying to fight off being attacked/hit with something while Superman watches on behind her.
The last scene of the evening was the coolest. It had Supergirl do a stunt where she was laying on a National City sign and being flung across the courtyard while Superman followed behind. Considering what I saw the next night with the full on fight between these two, cant hel but think Superman is the one who sent her flying (ps- I havent seen the episode..... so obviously all of YOU know if thats true or not already since its aired now). Throughout the night, even as it started to cool off, Melissa seemed to be in a really good mood.
Perhaps my favorite moment of the night, and 1 many of the crew laughed at too, was when a costume person went over to Melissa to move her cap to the side to show off more of her leg and Melissa made a comment about it which I didnt quite hear, but it was clear it had something to do with the additional skin being showed off for the scene, and Tyler replied to her "well, it is the CW", and everyone laughed.

Well, this will be a pretty short blog post. While there was more shot at this set, I didnt stick around to see it all..... so all I managed to catch was the scene where Tyler Hoechlin shot a scene with a Martian Manhunter stand in and a bunch of "soldier" type guys holding alien looking spears. I'll be honest, I havent watched the back half of Supergirl, so perhaps these characters are well known... but they arent anyone I knew of before I stopped watching.
Since this episode has already aired, I am sure you already know what happens.
One thing I found amusing was the licence plate. I dont know about where you live, but here in Canada the Provinces give out licence plates, not cities..... kinda humourous to me to see that "National City" has their own licence plates for some reason.
there will be a couple more blog posts from this days shoots coming up......but for now, here is a few photos from the daytime snoot.
