A story just broke from ComicBookResources.com reporting that Grant Gustin will be making an appearance on CBS’s Supergirl and he will be appearing as The Flash, The episode is reported to air on March 28. Sadly, all that is being reported is that The Flash will find himself in National City, but the actual reason he’ll be there, or any other information regarding the plot of the episode has yet to be revealed.
Speaking in a joint statement, the executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg had this to say:
“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! 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.”
Speculation has been hot and heavy regarding the possibility of having anyone from the “Flarrowverse” actually appear on CBS, and since the CW properties are being produced by those on CBS, many fans were hoping that this would be an indication of both series actually taking place in the same TV cinematic universe, and up until now it was thought that this would never happen, at least in this first season for the Girl Of Steel, with reasons ranging from purely creative to points on the legality of such a crossover.
As stated above, no storylines have been revealed as of yet, but one possibility being floated out there is that with the big reveal that there are now alternate universes that perhaps this is how Flash will end up meeting Supergirl. In any case, the mere thought that now Supergirl and Flash could potentially team up to fight off a menace certainly has DC TV fans squeezing with pure delight!
Supergirl airs on Monday at 8:00 PM, on CBS.
Okay then, how does THIS news grab you? Are you as stoked as the TG Geeks are??? Is this a good move on CBS’s part, and what does it signify in terms of how the network is looking at Supergirl? Does this also mean we might get to see Supergirl appear on any of the three CW DC shows?
