One of the most iconic of structures in California, at least if you ask us, is the Warner Bros. Water Tower.  The historical landmark built in 1927 received a makeover which celebrates the DC TV Super Hero Takeover.  In a ceremony held on Monday, October 19th, Supergirl star Melissa Benoist, Gotham stars Erin Richards and Cory Michael Smith, and executive producers Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Ali Adler (Supergirl), Marc Guggenheim (Arrow), and Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon & John Stephens (Gotham) were all on hand to celebrate the super makeover.

The 100 foot tall and 100,000 gallon tank (it’s waterless) will proudly display for 90 days characters from Gotham, Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow on 22 by 20 feet aluminum panels weighing each more than 5,000 pounds.  The craftsmanship involved dozens of craftspeople in the design and production of the panels, with representatives from a number of Studio departments including scenic design, special effects, lighting, signs and graphics, the metal shop, electrical, rigging and engineering.  They were installed using a specially devised custom-pulley system during the October 17–18 weekend.  The cables for the reveal of the panels were held down by 8,000 pounds of cement.

If you’re not in California to see the Warner Bros. Water Tower, which the Animaniacs famously escaped from back in the 1990’s, check out the photos we’ve included below.
