Mr. Oliver Queen himself, Stephen Amell, just uploaded the following image on his Facebook page with the caption, "There seems to be a new show infringing on our crew park. HOW DARE THEY!!!"

Now that the cast is seemingly complete, the pilot for ARROW's spin-off show, FLASH will begin filming soon. As previously reported, filming will begin in March, and the show will be set in Vancouver, with the Canadian city portraying both Central City and Starling City.

Thanks to the behind-the-scenes photo from Amell we know that studio lots will also be shared between the two shows. This will make it simpler for characters and actors to switch over or guest arc in each show. As previously reported, Emily Bett's Felicity Smoak is expected to appear on FLASH for a guest arc in season one should the show get picked up.

As you know, Grant Gustin has been cast as Barry Allen, the man who will ultimately become The Flash. Also cast in the series is Law & Order’s Jesse L. Martin and The Game’s Candice Patton, who will play Detective West and his daughter Iris. The cast also includes Rick Gosnett as Central City Police Detective Eddie Thawne, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow, Tom Cavanagh as S.T.A.R. Labs CEO Harrison Wells, Michelle Harrison as Nora Allen, and John Wesley Shipp, from the original "The Flash" TV series, in an unspecified role.

Hopefully there's a lot of CCPD investigations. Hopes and stakes are high for this show. Can't wait.

As someone who lives in Vancouver I can tell you it's actually closer to LA.
