If you're a fan of the show "Batwoman," you might want to stay out tomorrow night.

The Warner Brothers TV series entitled "Batwoman" will be filming tomorrow in Downtown Vancouver and the shoot involves "significant action."

A resident notification letter from Renraw Production Services states that filming will take place at the intersection of Melville and Thurlow Streets on Thursday, Nov. 7. The letter notes that minimal crew will prepare for the set throughout the day, and that after 8 p.m. they will begin filming stunt scenes. These scenes call for the use of exposed weapons, a van that crashes into a motorcycle, and atmospheric smoke. However, there won't be any gunfire.

Exterior driving and stunt scenes will be filmed at the 1000 block Melville St, the 500 and 600 block Thurlow St. Affected areas will also include the 1000 block Dunsmuir St, the 500 block of Burrard St, the 600 block of Hallstone St, as well as the laneways north and south of 1100 Melville St. As a result, motorists and pedestrians can expect delays moving through these areas.

Vancouver Police will assist with intermittent traffic control between 8 and 9 p.m. and there will be a full road closure after 9 p.m.

Filming is set to continue overnight until 6 a.m. Friday, Nov. 6.

On Nov.1, the City of Vancouver warned residents that there would be another film shoot with highly visible graphic content in Gastown.

The shoot, which involved multiple mock dead bodies and even a mock dead police horse, transformed the city streets into a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Based on the horror novel The Stand by Stephen King, the set design for the TV series “Radio Nowhere” calls for a great deal of disturbing imagery, dialogue and noise.

Have a look at some of the images from the weekend shoot.
