I don’t know if it’s the idea that we can find more inside us than we suspect, or just the fantasy of all the special abilities we see across the many comic book universes, but comic book super heroes have held my attention as long as I can remember.
I watched every season of Smallville, and I’m completely up-to-date on Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.
When these characters are brought to life on TV well, when they bring a humanity to characters who were in the past only two dimensional, it still gets my engine revved up.
News comes to day that The CW’s The Flash character will be making an appearance on the March 28th episode of CBS’s new show Supergirl. I think it helps that, while on competing networks, the shows share the same executive producers.
From Entertainment Weekly:
Details on the episode are being kept under wraps. There’s also no word yet on whether Melissa Benoist will return the favor and appear on The Flash. However, here’s why this crossover is important: If Barry Allen can make his way to National City, that means so too can Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in the future.
Though the Emerald Archer is missing from this initial outing, having The Flash first crossover with Supergirl seems a little more plausible considering they’re both metahuman and superhero-heavy shows. But since Barry Allen lives in a neighboring town to Oliver Queen, that means that Kara Danvers (Benoist) hails from the same universe. Therefore, the possibility for a future crossover with Arrow isn’t improbable — it’s just not happening right now.
“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl —The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!” said The Flash and Supergirl executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.
