Kara Zor-el aka Supergirl and Barry Allen aka The Flash are bound to meet this coming March. Executive producers Greg Barlanti and Andrew Kreisberg have officially announced that after finding a proper venue, both superheroes are joining forces.
They told Entertainment Weekly, “We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we started making Supergirl The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!”
Although crossovers among DC comics-based TV series ? namely “The Flash,” “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow” ? have already been expected and are already happening, Forbes cited that it will be different now that Supergirl has been put into the picture.
Meanwhile, it has been reported in Deadline that only “The Flash” is able to crossover. This is in line with his plot wherein the dimensional drift paves the way for opening Earth One and Earth Two, which may only be traversed by someone with super speed.
The crossover episode will air March 28, but its arc is yet to be revealed.
“Supergirl” is played by former “Glee” actress Melissa Benoist. Alongside her are Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, and Calista Flockhart.
In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, Benoist shared her relief upon finding out that series has been received so well.
She said, “There’s always trepidation. Especially when something’s being pushed. We were advertised everywhere. That was the only moment that I felt any trepidation like, ‘Oh God, that’s going to be embarrassing if no one likes it.’ I never reall had any true fear.”
Though both “Supergirl” and “The Flash” air in two different networks, anticipation is now high for their upcoming encounter. Currently, “The Flash,” which is televised on The CW, is its highest rated show while “Supergirl” ranks sixth on CBS, according to TV by the Numbers.
