Last week, 1 of the other local autographers & I had a conversation with Grant Gustin about his upcoming role as Barry Allen aka - The Flash. The topic of promotional images for the show came up, and Grant said he didnt know when there would be some full suit ones. I told him, whenever they do a public shoot with you in the suit, there will be 1 that same day. I don't know if he thought I was serious or not, but I was.
So it comes as no shock to me that coincidentally today there was a promo image of The Flash in the full outfit (a previous one was out of just the mask) which Grant himself tweeted a pic of it with the hashtag #TheFlashIsComing . I say coincidentally, because this just happened to be the 1st day that Grant Gustin was seen in public in The Flash costume. Hmmm.
The scene was simple enough. The Flash runs through a courtyard that has been used by countless productions over the years and jumps off a stair case, lands, then proceeds with his run. But it was the 1st chance the public got to see of the DC Comics legendary character out on location for the Pilot filming.
Grants day at this location started off a bit scary as he cracked his head quite hard on the crane they had the camera mounted on because the crew that were escorting him to his spot didnt warn him. They were so busy trying to keep him covered from the mound of fans & paps across the street waiting to see the scene (WHY who knows...he was gonna be seen for an hour after that in the outfit), they didnt cover off their 1st rule of their job, make sure the star is safe.
Fortunately, after getting looked at by someone, he proceeded with his work day & did the scene without any more issues (at least that I saw). When his day was done, he got out of his costume & was hurried into an awaiting van.
Here are some unofficial behind the scene photos of Grant doing his 1st public scene in the Flash costume.

As well here is as a short video of him doing a preparation run.
The Flash, based off the DC Comic Book by the same name, is a spin-off of another Vancouver shot DC Comics show Arrow. Which Grant had a 2 episode guest star arc to introduce Barry Allen (aka - The Flash). The Flash should begin airing on The CW this fall.
Earlier today I knew about a film shoot for the new pilot that The CW is shooting based on the comic book hero The Flash.
Grant Gustin, who previously had recurring roles on "Glee" & "90210" before getting his big break as Barry Allen for 2 episodes of "Arrow" is the lead character in this CW adaptation of the comic book icon which was introduced to The CW viewers thru his 2 episode arc on Arrow.
I will go more into depth about the series in another blog. One where Grant is actually featured. But this one, the 1st blog in this section is for a spectacular stunt scene.
In the scene, a car comes down the street & crashes into a car that's already upside down on the street (how does someone NOT see that?). The result is a pretty amazing crash & explosion scene.
The Flash is currently filming its pilot in Vancouver, Canada & is already expected to get at least a 13 episode season on The CW coming out this fall.
