The Flash filmed some scenes in downtown Vancouver earlier in July for the season 2 premiere.
The first day they shot scenes in a large park in the West End for "Flash Day" in Central City. I missed all the actual filming, but I did get there in time to see Carlos Valdez on lunch and meet Adam Copeland (aka Edge from WWE) who was guest starring in the episode.
A couple days later, I caught up with them shooing in an alley a block from BC Place. There was very little to be seen there due to the way the alley was set up.
Again Adam Copeland was on set, along with Grant Gustin dressed in his standard Flash suit with the red logo still being repped (spoiler alert for those not on the internet in the last 3 weeks and this is the first thing you are seeing... a change is coming to the logo SOON).
The most interesting thing from this shoot wasn't the actors on set. It was a new prop that I'm assuming the CCPD has. As much as I love the Flash, I am a little disappointed to see them so blatantly rip off an idea from another superhero show. The Flash now has his own version of The Bat Signal.
I also added a few pics of the cast of The Flash going to & returning from Comic-Con weekend. Grant, Carlos, Tom Cavanagh, Victor Garber and Candice Patton.
The Flashs season 2 begins October , 2015 on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.

The Flash shoots scenes for episode 122 with Grant Gustin, Tom Cavanagh, Robbie Amell and a Guest Star in a VERY Spoilery Outfit.
THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 122 OF "THE FLASH" If you have not seen the episode and do not want to view or read any potential spoilers for the show, do not continue reading the blog post, or viewing the photos below.
Wednesday night the cast and crew of the hit DC Comics superhero show The Flash took over the entire B.C. Place Stadium building and grounds. Shooting started early in the day with several cast members inside the stadium. I never saw anyone but Jesse L. Martin go in or out, but another fan tweeted about seeing Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker & Wentworth Miller leaving.
In the early evening crews moved outside to an entranceway on the eastern side of the building. There they had a large crane and several cars parked on the ground, giving the illusion that the walkway was in fact a parking lot outside of S.T.A.R. Labs. The crane then hoisted a stunt man in full Reverse Flash attire up several stories, before he was dropped down into a pile of awaiting mats while attached to a safety harness. Then another stunt man followed, doing the same jump in a dark black outfit and beige vest. I never got any shots of that one, as I wasn't ready for the 2nd stunt mans fall.
After a couple of other scenes back on the ground, out of the way of any viewers because of the unique angle that the platform holds in comparison to any viewpoint other than the viaduct that goes past it, which the crew, with the permission of the Vancouver Police Department closed off from pedestrians (despite it literally having no safety concerns) while they shot the scenes.
After shooting those scenes, the crew moved to the front of B.C. Place to shoot in Terry Fox Plaza. The unique art work in the plaza of the famed 1 legged runner who ran to raise money for Cancer research gave the set designers an idea, they used the growing in size statues as places to put "S.T.A.R. Labs" signs.
As the evening started to pick up, the cast showed up in a few SUVs. first was 1 that caught me off guard, as Arrow star Stephen Amell arrived wearing some odd clothes. Grant Gustin and Robbie Amell then arrived, with Tom Cavanagh showing up slightly after them.
It didn't take me long to realize Stephen was dressed oddly because he was not dressed like Oliver Queen or "The Arrow" but as a member of the League Of Assassins. I'll even go as far as to say he was dressed like Ra's al Ghul.
This probably had something to do with why the crew, which does already have a lengthy history in their short existence of trying to flex their muscles over watchers & regulars alike even in situations that they clearly have no rights to, doing so often this night. No less than 5 times were the TWO people who were there for any length of time me, and a professional photographer were "asked" (more like "strongly insisted") to move from public spaces despite not being in the view of the cameras.
The scene itself did not reveal TOO much. It seemed to be a face off between Reverse Flash & Ras Arrow Ghul, Firestorm & The Flash. Perhaps the stunt scene I saw earlier is the end product of the battle? Hard to say without seeing more than a few seconds of the filming.
The Flash is on Tuesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
