The TV show ‘Heroes’ is getting a reboot.
The ‘Heroes Reborn’ trailer was debuted at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and while the show is being revisited, so is a dark spot of Vancouver’s history.
The TV show’s trailer features a mix of scenes depicting crowds in chaos, and one of those scenes just happens to be a shot from the 2011 Stanley Cup riots here in Vancouver.
The shot comes in around 1:36 seconds, and shows a flipped cop car burning the corner of Hamilton and Georgia streets, with the CBC Vancouver building behind it.
The TV show’s editors slightly altered the scene by altering the signs held up by the crowd to read things like “powers are evil” and “God hates Evos”… but any true Canucks fan can recognize that blue and green jersey from a mile away.
Check it out.
The revamped TV series is set to make it’s debut on September 24th, 2015.
