"Flash," "Supergirl" EP Dismisses Crossover Rumors

Following a press screening of this week's crossover between "The Flash" and "Arrow" earlier today, a reporter asked Executive Producer Greg Berlanti about whether a different crossover might be in "The Flash's" future.

Given ever-present speculation that his new series, "Supergirl," might receive a visit from Barry Allen (or see some type of interaction with the Arrowverse) in its freshman season, a reporter asked if even initial discussions have occurred regarding a crossover. Berlanti told the gathered press, including CBR News, "No, only because we just received the pick up. Not at this point."

From the day "Supergirl" was announced, speculation has run rampant about the show crossing over with "Flash." In a January 2015 interview with Tara Butters and Marc Guggenheim, the "Arrow" EP said that such a crossover was "possible," with THR stating outright that it had learned that a crossover between "Supergirl" and either "Flash" or "Arrow" was written into Berlanti's deal.

An interview Berlanti did with "Variety" in May also fueled crossover rumors, as the photos accompanying the piece featured the EP flanked by stars Grant Gustin (The Flash) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl).

"Supergirl" received its full season pick up earlier today, with CBS ordering seven more episodes. The news arrived just five weeks after the launch of the DC Comics-based action-drama, which premiered on Oct. 26.
