Keen-eyed DC fans might’ve noticed this little tidbit about The CW’s new Flash series already, but did you know the set designer snuck in an awesome little Justice League nod?
Entertainment Tonight spoke with head production designer Tyler Harron about the look and feel of Central City — especially the throwback-cool, 1940s-inspired police department. As fans already know, the department is framed around a massive, golden sculpture featuring the Greek gods. But did you notice those “gods” are actually representative of superheroes?
While designing the massive sculpture, Harron decided to covertly turn the Greek pantheon into DC’s pantheon to have a little fun with the set:
“When I found out that I was going to do this show, this was the first thing that I designed. I’ve always been a huge DC fan and so it was really easy for me to say that I need to put this one Easter egg in here. All of the sets were based off of this…I wanted to do a deco [themed] set and [the sculpting style of] bas-relief in the deco era was rampant and so was the Greek mythology in their sculptures. So I said I'd like to put in an Easter egg that represents all each one of the Justice League members.”
If you need a little help with the below photo, there is: Superman as Zeus (Jupiter), Batman as Hades (Pluto), Wonder Woman as Hera (Juno), the Flash as Hermes (Mercury), Green Arrow as Apollo, Aquaman as Poseidon (Neptune) and the Green Lantern as Hephaestus (Vulcan).
