Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you look up into the sky only to see the infamous Bat Signal. This bright and recognizable beacon was seen in a very popular Canadian city over the weekend.

But don’t get your hopes up. The city didn’t purchase the Bat Signal because Vancouver is in need of a masked vigilante. Rather, The CW is filming their new Batwoman TV series right here in Vancouver! And if you ask me, that’s equally as cool.

The Bat Signal was not the only cool thing Vancouverites saw this weekend. The Vancouver Art Gallery got a complete makeover for the TV show. From top to bottom, the gallery was covered in huge banners that read "Mayor Atkins" and "Gotham." Also on set for filming was a huge red carpet that was laid out over the gallery steps.

“Batman, and all things Batman, make my inner child get all excited, and this was pretty awesome,” wrote Singh in his Instagram post. “soon as I got wind about this, I had to head downtown!”
