I caught up with Supergirl shooting just outside of downtown Vancouver, at an area that the locals know as "the old Molson Brewery", but now is just a mostly abandoned factory. This was the same location that my 1st shots late last year were of Superman & Lois filming a night shoot of Tyler Hoechlin in his new suit.
As with that set, I saw almost none of the actual filming here. The only scene I actually DID see, was a scene with a bunch of guest actors getting out of a panel van & walking towards a building. Thats it. But the bigger thing I did see obviously that day, was David Harewood, and his stunt double on set in their Martian Manhunter outfits, as well as Jennifer Clarke in her Supergirl outfit. But that was all secondary to the thing all the fans were most anticipating. Melissa Benoist was on set as Supergirl publicly for the first time since she gave birth to a baby, and since the pandemic shut down production less than 2 weeks short of a year ago (you can see their last public shoot set HERE). At one point they were using a drone to shoot a scene, but again, I saw nothing of what the drone was seeing..... wish I had its view.
The first photos of Melissa Benoist since March 12, 2020 on set outside of the studio. Since the shows return from the hiatus that was caused by the ongoing pandemic, the cast & crew of Supergirl have been rarely on location, and to date, none of those locations seemed to be with Melissa (if she had 1 prior, no one found it). So for the eager fans of the actress, this was their 1st real chance to see her out & about in a year.
On Thursday, the production moved to New Westminster, about 1/2 hour outside of downtown Vancouver for a scene at an autobody shop. They were using their courtyard to shooting a scene (thankfully with the gate open) with a huge rig that had been torn apart through the middle.
Again Supergirl & Martian Manhunter were in the scene. It starts with Martian Manhunter standing infront of the torn hull of the container, Supergirl then "lands" and walks over. They talk about it, before MM leaves for a moment, then comes back with a piece of paper. The pair read the paper. In 1 take MM did a jump up as if to fly away, but I never saw him do it in another take, so I dont know if he did it as an improvisation, or if he was asked to do it once by the director. But it wasnt something I saw in any of the other takes they did.
This was of course the first ACTUAL location scene anyone would see Melissa Benoist shoot this season.
Video will come later this month. Sorry for the heavier than usual watermarks. But some of the fans from this fandom like wasting their time removing them, posting them, and losing their social media account over it. Weird hobby, but, I thought I would make it at least a little harder for them this time. Be sure to thank them for the heavier than usual watermarks.
