So unless you’re new to this site, you’ll know that Grant Gustin’s Flash is set to crossover with the Supergirl TV series later this month (March 28th, to be precise).
And we got the very cool poster above last week (read more about it here) which had us wondering if the two heroes would actually race in it.
And now we know, thanks to Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist, speaking at PaleyFest LA’s Supergirl panel: “I’m excited for you guys to see the race!”
While we were pretty confident it would happen, now we’re definitely excited for it. As for Flash’s appearance on the show, the actress said when Supergirl sees him, she says “Oh my God, it’s someone like me!”
It was also hinted at that Barry Allen and Kara’s relationship (Flash and Supergirl in case you didn’t know) will be a bit flirtatious and rubs James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) up the wrong way as he has romantic feeling for Kara. Hmmmmmmm…
In related news, executive producer Greg Berlanti, has been talking about why they decided to cross Flash into Supergirl’s universe: “We needed to create a way to do it. We had to introduce Superman since you’ve heard about him and you’ve heard about Supergirl, but in the worlds of Arrow and Flash, they didn’t exist in that world. We introduced the multiverse in The Flash this year, and that was always our way in.”
Pretty much everyone figured out right away that it was going to be a multi-verse story, but we just love the idea of all these character coming together, and we don’t care how it happens…
The Flash and Supergirl crossover airs March 28 at 8 PM ET on CBS.
