THE FLASH Begins Production Today And We’ve Already Gotten Our First Easter Egg


flash bannerEarlier this week the partial reveal of Grant Gustin‘s Flash costume whipped fans into a frenzy as filming on the highly-anticipated pilot was getting ready to begin. Today production on the show has begun in earnest, so hopefully we get a full costume reveal and maybe a few set pictures in the coming weeks. With production starting, there are plenty of Twitter teasers from the crew starting to hit the web. Show developer/Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg and stunt coordinator Jon Kralt were the first to send out some interesting little Twitter teasers today.

Both Kreisberg and Kralt sent out shots of the show’s clapboard to show that filming has truly started on the series. The first roll of film is in the camera and the first take for scene 31 has started. The clapboard shows a Flash logo and a comic book version of the character, but we shouldn’t take this as a sign that it’s the show’s official logo. I would say it will be something similar to the one that will be used, but don’t take it to the bank just yet. Regardless, it’s just nice to see some teasers as work begins.

Kreisberg also sent out another Twitter pic that may just serve as the show’s first Easter Egg. Arrow is ripe with Easter Eggs that give a nod to certain parts of the DC Universe, so we should expect no less from Flash. Kreisberg asks if “anyone is thirsty” by using a pic of CC Jitters coffee. In the comics there is a Jitters Coffee on almost every corner in Central City. You can see a comic book page featuring a Jitters shack below. Arrow has expertly peppered in little nods to the comics throughout the series, so it will be interesting to see what the Flash show’s Easter Egg style will be. What do you think about the Twitter teasers for the show? Do you hope we see some set pics this week?
