Did you spot some superheroes in the city last year? 

It isn't uncommon to spot a Hollywood star decked out in super-attire in Metro Vancouver. In fact, multiple TV shows based on popular DC comics have been filmed in the city including Peacemaker, Batwoman, SupergirlThe Flash, and more. 

But there was a noticeable lack of eye-catching characters in the city in the past month. 

Multiple TV shows took a break from filming locally over the winter holidays and resumed filming in the new year. However, some shows delayed their return to production due to rising cases of the Omicron variant in B.C., according to Hollywood North Buzz

Now in its eighth season, The Flash is CW TV show is about a superhero who assumes his awesome powers after being struck by lightning. Filming for the popular show commenced in early January.

Locals noted that there were filming trucks near Burnaby's Central Park along Boundary Road. 

A Metro Vancouverite also took to Twitter on Jan. 21 to share a masked-up selfie he snapped with actor Robbie Amell. The Canadian actor plays Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm on The Flash. 

Production for The Flash has involved some massive sets in the city over the past year, including blocking traffic to the Georgia Viaduct and at the Vancouver Convention Centre
