Shooting The Flash!


In my previous blog “Flashing The Flash” I wrote that I would be watching the pilot episode of The Flash on Tuesday, 14th October 2014.  I did!  I was literally blown away! [She jokes].  Seriously the effects were amazing and I enjoyed the storyline.  No wonder the ratings were so good.


Yes I’m keeping score and I will continue to do so because I’ve a vested interest in this show i.e. Wentworth Miller.  I’ve a feeling when Wentworth’s character Captain Cold aka Leonard Snart bursts onto our TV screens “The Flash” ratings are going to soar!  You mark my words.  I mean take a look at the links below and perhaps you’ll catch my drift.


I enjoyed reading the following interview:

NYCC: JOHNS TALKS EARLY "FLASH" TV SUCCESS, SEEING CAPTAIN COLD IN LIVE-ACTION

You just mentioned Wentworth Miller -- what kind of emotions have been stirred by seeing one of your favorite characters, Captain Cold, in live-action for the first time?

When I was on set, and he first came out -- it's just really cool to see him hold that cold gun. There was a huge debate about, "Does he hold the gun with two hands or one hand?" Glen Winter, who directed it -- he directed some "Arrow" episodes I wrote, and some "Smallville" [episodes] when I first started writing TV -- I've known him for a long, long time, and we got to talk a lot about Barry, and Snart, and what it all meant emotionally. There are some really cool emotional arcs in that episode that make Cold even stronger of a character, and he represents a lot in the show when you see it. I don't want to ruin the surprise.

It was great to have these debates about why he would hold it with one hand. It wasn't just because it looked cooler, it was because of the confidence he has when he touches that cold gun for the first time. It's almost like, "Oh my god, where have you been all my life?" The way that Wentworth portrayed it -- he evolves from this very intelligent and driven criminal, and then he's in a city where a streak is showing up, and it's causing all these problems, and he realizes he's got to evolve himself. This is the first step of his evolution. We talked a lot about the character, his attitude, where he's going to go. To be able to sit there on set and talk with Wentworth and Glen about Captain Cold -- that's heaven, y'know? Especially when you're working with an actor this talented, talking to the prop guys that were making the gun about what it should look like -- I hope people enjoy the episode. I'm really happy with how it turned out.


Check out the “behind” the scenes of The Flash on a freezing cold night on Thursday, 16th October 2014 in VC., BC., Canada with Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heatwave (Dominic Purcell) and Flash (Grant Gustin) .



No wonder they called these scenes “behind” the scenes.  I must say Went looks very cuddlesome in his Parka from behind wouldn’t you agree?  I could just give him a good ol’ polar bear hug!

… And then we get a glimpse of the “front” scene.
 

… And also the “side” scene.


You might be wondering why I’ve been writing in this fashion? It just so happens that as I’m writing about this event the information and pictures are popping up on the Internet.  It’s now apparent that the photos of Went were taken from various photographers at different scenes and angles.

It’s so good to see Wentworth and Dominic acting together once again.  It sure brings back such wonderful memories for me and I guess for you and everyone involved … Wentworth and Dominic.
 
I have another three episodes of The Flash to see before Captain Cold makes his debut.  I can tell you that my excitement and anticipation of seeing Went on TV is certainly raising the temperature in the Southern Hemisphere to boiling point. Talk about a “Heatwave”!
