The long rumor/speculated team-up between the CW’s Scarlet Speedster and CBS’s Girl of Tomorrow is finally official. Grant Gustin will blur the grand cosmic barriers that separate cable tiers to appear as Barry Allen/The Flash in an upcoming episode of CBS’s Supergirl (staring Melissa Benoist,) later this spring.This ends long time speculation that started when the Girl of Steel’s solo TV debut was announced last year, speculation that was well founded due to the production sharing the same creative team as the CW superhero show.
While there are no official details on how the March 8th crossover will happen, Flash and Supergirl executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg released the following statement:
“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!” the statement reads. “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.”
With Supergirl connecting to The Flash that connects to Arrow (that recently brought NBC’s canceled Constantine into the fold) all spinning around the new super team TV show, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The DC Entertainment TV universe seems to be growing quite nicely. Hopefully over the next few months we’ll catch word of more characters making the leap from the page to the small screen.
(come on, a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle buddy/buddy show is cash in the bank! CW? CBS? If one of them wore a cowboy hat would CMT be interested in it?)
