THIS POST CONTAINS PHOTOS & A BREIF DESCRIPTION OF SCENES SHOT FOR EPISODE 108 "THE FLASH VS ARROW" A FEW WEEKS AGO. If you have not yet seen the episode, and do not want to read or see any possible spoilers from it... please to don't continue reading the article, or viewing the photos
So, as everyone reading this likely knows. Episode 8 of season 3 of Arrow, and season 1 of The Flash will be a cross over episode in which characters from both shows will be featured on each episode, starting with The Flash next Tuesday night & concluding the night after on Arrow.
A few weeks ago, several scenes were shout downtown for The Flash episode, titled "The Flash VS Arrow". I intended to have some of these up sooner, and put up the final batch this week...but I got sidetracked. So, heres 1 whole megapost of pics from the 3 days of shoots.
The 1st day was the only day I saw any members from Arrow on set shooting. Of course, it happened to be THE ARROW. Stephen Amell and his stunt double Simon Burnett were on the set shooting a scene with Grant Gustin & his stunt double Cody Laudan for the episode. I never really got a chance to SEE much of the scene, but it seemed to be some type of confrontation between the two heroes, which makes me think Flash VS Arrow is going to have some friction between the masked men.
The next day saw scenes done in a building that featured Jesse L. Martin as Joe West. I also saw the stunt doubles of Grant Gustin & Stephen Amell around that day, but not sure what the scenes entailed since they were all indoors.
On the final day, they had multiple scenes happen.
First off was a scene where they had The Flash star Grant Gustin running into what seems to be the ONLY bank in Central City (and 1 that seems to have a lot of bad luck). They filmed a couple other scenes in & around the bank with guest star of the week Paul Anthony (aka Roy G. Bivolo aka - Chromo) who did a solo scene a block over earlier in the day that I'm guessing was of him getting ready to enter the bank....then he moved over to the actual bank set where he enters the bank and soon after scenes were shot where a scene like something out of the WWE Royal Rumble took place where everyone in the bank just started fighting each other. I honestly don't know what the scene will look like on camera, but from outside it looked pretty wild & funny.
After the bank scene was shot. Grant Gustin poked his head out the door in his Barry Allen attire, waved at the fans standing across busy Pender Street. Then, in what has so far in the time The Flash has shot here, been a rare occurrence, a few seconds later, came back out and came across the street to meet the handful of fans before he headed off to lunch.
After lunch, the crew & cast returned to a side street around the corner from the bank scene for a night stunt scene involving Grant Gustin, Rick Cosnett & Candice Patton and their stunt doubles.
The scene seems to have The Flash using his body to slow down/stop a car from hitting Eddie Thawne who was standing in the middle of the street. After Eddie jumps out of the way, The Flash comes over to him to confront detective pretty boy as Iris comes running in from the distance. This scene was an interesting one for me, because I never really thought Grant could muster up a menacing volume of speaking, but the verbal tongue lashing he put on Eddie there was quite intense. Needless to say if Iris was close enough to hear his conversation with Eddie, she would HAVE to know its Barry now after what he said, and as loud as he did.
During 1 of the re-positions of the scene and equipment Grant came over to a couple of fans still waiting at the set in the early hours of the morning. He briefly chatted with them, but said he couldn't take photos while in the suit. I asked him if he could once the show airs (it had not aired yet) and he said "maybe".... so far, I haven't had the chance to test that. Shortly after, we were moved back further & I felt there was not much more I probably would see worth sticking around at such a late hour & went home.
The Flash is currently up for several BEST OF TV AWARDS 2014 going on right now HERE.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and CTV in Canada. The Flash/Arrow cross over episodes will air December 2nd for The Flash, December 3rd for Arrow.
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 107 OF "THE FLASH". Please do not continue reading, or viewing photos if you do not want to read or see any details of the episode prior to airing.
Back in mid September I caught The Flash shooting in Burnaby for a scene that will be in episode 107.
The scene was unusually overly blocked with umbrellas and scrims to prevent the public from seeing what was going on.
Even despite their best efforts to block most of this scene from the public seeing it despite shooting it on a public street, some quick glimpses of the scenes being shot gave us all enough to put together that the scene has Grant Gustin as Barry Allen (aka - The Flash) walking along drinking a coffee when he is grabbed & held at gunpoint by a mugger who clearly is not good at picking easy targets. Barry looked cocky in the interaction & proceeded to disrobe the attempted mugger with his super speed.
The Flash is up for several awards in the 2014 Best OF TV Awards opening round of voting that is going on right now HERE.
The Flash airs Tuesday Nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
Grant Gustin films a few scenes for an upcoming episode of THE FLASH in August with Candice Patton and his stunt man Cody Laudan
Better late than never, right?
Back in August THE FLASH shot a few scenes for an upcoming episode that I BELIEVE is tonights, or next weeks judging by when it was shot.
The scene didn't have much to describe since a crew member felt it was their goal in life to block off the entire scene from public viewing despite no cast or crew complaining even once about me prior to him doing so.
I can confirm Grant Gustin as Barry Allen did a few scenes in the Flash suit, and later did scenes with Candice Patton. His stunt man Cody Laudan also did scenes as The Flash.
THE FLASH returns tonight after its 1 week hiatus for the U.S. mid-term elections on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
The Flash is nominated for several awards including Best New Show at the 2014 Best Of TV Awards taking place now thru early January 2015 Here.
