While Greg Berlanti has gone on record numerous times to downplay and dismiss rumors of plans for two of his DC Comics-based shows to cross over, the Executive Producer now indicates that there’s a shot — a long shot, to be sure — that “The Flash” and “Supergirl” might meet this season.
“It would have to figured out very soon,” Berlanti told Entertainment Weekly over the weekend.
“I would love it, a lot of things would have to go right and people would have to say ‘Yes,'” he explained. “It would all have to be figured out in the next month or so. As it remains right now we’ve talked internally about how cool it would be, but we haven’t had official conversations. [The CW chief Mark Pedowitz] is supportive.”
Supportive or not, EP Andrew Kreisberg earlier comments regarding a CW series interacting with one airing on CBS should temper the optimism expressed in his latest statement. “First of all, we don’t even know if we could, legally,” Kreisberg said in Dec. 2015. “Quite frankly, just making the ‘Arrow’-verse which is what we call ‘Legends,’ ‘Flash’ and ‘Arrow’ work and then making ‘Supergirl’ work, it’s enough of a challenge without having to add a fourth player.”
“Supergirl” airs on Mondays on CBS; “The Flash” and “Arrow” air on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, respectively, on the CW.
