The CW's THE FLASH Set To Begin Filming In Vancouver In March

We've learned that the pilot for the potential Flash TV show is set to be shot in Vancouver in March. Plus, more potential cross overs with Arrow are likely! Read on for the details.

As we all know here at, Grant Gustin has been given his own series as Barry Allen by The CW, following the character's awesome live action appearances in Arrow's 8th and 9th episode this season. The show is set to begin filming its Pilot in March of this year in Vancouver, the same city where Arrow is filmed. It is likely that the studios and production teams will shared between the two DC Comics based shows. So it was not surprising when Stephen Amell hinted that a future crossover between Arrow and its upcoming spinoff The Flash is still possible as both shows will be filmed in the same neighbourhoods.

Arrow star Amell recently had this to say to Access Hollywood about his character Oliver Queen and Barry Allen crossing paths again:

"It's always possible," he explained. "I mean, originally he was supposed to be involved in our 20th episode, and that's not happening." The actor continued, "I know that it's less likely that he comes back this season because I think [they] rightly want to save his story for his show, but if his show is successful and is on the air, I can't imagine that we wouldn't use the opportunity to do crossover events so to speak."

Amell also said that he really enjoys working with Gustin.

"Grant was great and he gets a lot of credit too," he said. "He was the star of episode eight." He went on to say, "It was [Grant's] story and he nailed it and that's an incredibly difficult thing to do to come in as a guest and really take ownership of an episode and he did it. He killed it. It's why they took it from episode 20 and made it a pilot because they're banking on him and they should be."
