Although we had heard in November last year (here) that Supergirl in Greg Berlanti’s new show over at CBS could be the same universe as Arrow and The Flash despite being on different networks, the idea now seems to have been given even more weight…
Producer Marc Guggenheim, talking to THR, confirmed that a crossover event was certainly not out of the question when he was asked about it by a reporter. The exchange went like this:
THR: Marc, CBS is doing Supergirl. What is the possibility of a crossover?
MG: It’s possible.
THR: I actually heard it’s in Greg’s deal, that Supergirl can cross over with Flash and/or Arrow.
Guggenheim didn’t answer this but reports are saying that his reaction seemed to agree with what was said.
Add to this yesterday’s report that Batman could conceivably appear in Arrow and we could have a very, very exciting TV DC universe coming.
Interestingly, the guys at Comicbook point out: “Since CBS is a co-owner with Warner Bros. of The CW, almost no one has claimed it was outside of the realm of possibility for such a crossover to take place,but if THR is right that it’s actually built into the contract, one assumes it’s something they’re planning for.”
