CBS’ Supergirl has been the talk of the internet this week. Along with the excitement and trailer analysis going on there’s also been some hype and rumor on what crossovers we might expect. It’s already been announced that Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow will be crossing over next season. Since they’re all a part of the DC Universe, Supergirl joining the crossover frenzy seems obvious, right?
Greg Berlanti, Supergirl’s producer, has officially popped the crossover speculation bubble. He confirmed to Variety that our brave new heroine, Kara, won’t be visiting, or getting visited by, any other DC Entertainment properties in the foreseeable future.
The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves. I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see (a crossover). I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.
While Supergirl isn’t in the “CW Universe” of DC Entertainment, fans were hopeful that because Berlanti is a producer on all four shows that maybe he could work some magic to make it happen. As usual, the reality of TV shows on separate networks is a harsh one, and, for now, the answer is “No.” Berlanti does seem a tad bit hopeful that success for Supergirl might make such things more tangible in the future.
You won’t catch us complaining, though. So far, Supergirl is shaping up to be everything we could want it to be. Maybe in the future we’ll get to see her interact with Barry Allen or Oliver McQueen, but right now we are happy to see her forge her own path in the ever expanding world of television superheroes.
Don’t forget to check out the six-minute trailer for the new Supergirl TV series set to premiere on CBS at 8 pm on Mondays this November.
