When Supergirl landed at at CBS, fans of Greg Berlanti”s take on the DC Universe were a little disappointed. Yes it was great to have a female-driven superhero show! But with the rest of the DCTV world on The CW, it became unlikely that Kara would ever get a chance to mingle with the rest of the Arrow-verse. Not that is stopped fans from hoping, fueled by some adorable photos of Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin from a promotional photoshoot last year.
This outtake is the best. Just some superheroes doing superhero things. @melissabenoist @gberlanti #TheFlash #Supergirl
Now it turns out that not even being on competing networks can stop the juggernaut that is Berlanti Productions” shared DC Universe! This March, Gustin will make his debut on CBS as The Flash speeds over to National City for a very special episode of Supergirl. Fan dreams really do come true!
Details about the episode are currently under wraps, but executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg were over the moon about making this team-up a reality:
“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!. We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone's enthusiasm and support.”
The crossover episode of Supergirl is slated for Monday, March 28 at 9/8c on CBS.
