THE FLASH shoots a scene for season 5 with Grant Gustin & Jessica Parker Kennedy - incl. Grant in his NEW SUIT
THIS BLOG POST IS FOR "THE FLASH" SEASON 5 EPISODE 4 (I believe.. could be 5), AND MAY CONTAIN POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON.
If you have not seen the episode, and do not want to see or read possible spoilers about it prior to seeing it, do not continue reading the article or viewing the photos below.
PLEASE LIMIT PHOTOS YOU POST ON YOUR ARTICLES, INSTAGRAM/TWITTER/OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA SITES POSTS TO FOUR MAXIMUM & credit this post (not just my twitter/instagram handle). Too many people in the last season & a bit have got comfortable with just posting ALL the photos & thus eliminating traffic from coming here. If you want these updates to continue this season, this has to STOP. I will be aggressively reporting those who opt to ignore this info from here on out for DMCA notices, or more.
The Flash was shooting scenes for season 5 in downtown Vancouver last night. They were in an area known as Plaza Of Nations, which during its heydays used to be an entertainment area with an outdoor concert venue, a couple clubs and a casino. Nowadays, its mostly just a couple large empty buildings and an empty courtyard where the outdoor concert venue was. While many productions have used the facilities over the years, I THINK this is the first time I can recall The Flash there.
Fair warning, the photos below are NOT the best quality. I never really found a good spot to shoot from. One side was bad because of the large white screens which gave everything a sort of "shadow" look, and even with all the brightening in the world, they still are pretty dark. On the other side.... just too much foot traffic in the way, plus the actual extras in the scene.
Early in the day the cast & crew shot inside the building with Grant Gustin dressed as Barry Allen. I DID NOT see any other cast confirmed to be in there, but I did see Jessica Parker Kennedy and her double around there, dressed as XS. Whether they were inside filming or not, I cant say. Later, the shoot moved outside, where a crowd of maybe 50 people all well dressed stood, staring at a building in shock and horror. Grant, now dressed as The Flash in his NEW SUIT, was there with XS in the crowd. Suddenly he darts off, leaving his daughter to watch the building, which was dressed up to look like Central City Picture News. Was Iris there? I cant say. I did not see her around, but she could have been there, there was a lot of background people, it was dark, and I was far enough away that outside of those in superhero constumes, couldnt really be sure who was there.
As for what I noticed about Grants new suit. Definitely sleeker, seemed less bulky. Seemed a bit brighter to me too, more in tune with how the John Wesley Shipp era Flash suit might have looked. Also, it looks like the top part of his head piece is separate from the rest. How it will look on scree, is still a mystery to be figured out. Guess we'll have to wait till October for that.
Based on the date, these SHOULD be for episode 4... but theres a small chance they are for episode 5.
The Flash airs on The CW in the U.S. on Tuesdays and to CTV in Canada starting October 9th, 2018
