Denizens of the CW network’s Arrowverse — the fictional universe that encompasses the CW television shows “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and now “Supergirl” — have seen a lot in their time, but nothing quite like Kara Zor-El, Supergirl. The network is planning a massive crossover event for this fall, though, so some viewers are naturally curious about how the only bonafide alien in the crew is going to be received.
According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Supergirl — the orphan Kryptonian played by Melissa Benoist — is greeted with a mix of intrigue and uncertainty by her peers. And then she starts flying around.
“Some people, like Barry [Grant Gustin], already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her,” said “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her. Diggle [David Ramsey], as always, just when he thinks he’s seen it all, there’s a moment in it where somebody says, ‘This is Supergirl,’ and they say, ‘What’s so super about her?’ and she just lifts off the ground. Dig’s like, ‘I’m convinced.’”
Despite “Supergirl” only recently making the jump from CBS to the CW, the character is already a known quantity to some in the Arrowverse. Last year Grant Gustin, who plays the lead speedster “The Flash,” guest starred on an episode of “Supergirl.” It was Supergirl’s induction into the CW’s Arrowverse.
Details surrounding the crossover remain scarce, although it is known that the villains of the event will be the Dominators. The crossover is expected to air in December.
We are less than a week away from the return of the Emerald Archer to television. Many people are realistically not that excited about the upcoming 5th season and its some what understandable.
Sure the 1st season had to work to grab and keep viewers but it did enough to make them want to watch season 2. Then the full on conflict between “The Arrow” and “Deathstroke” was built up so well until what many felt was a less than climatic final fight between the two. Season three almost lost EVERYONE with the full on story of the League of Assassins but hey this Super Villain enjoyed the story of Nyssa Al’Ghul. Season Fours story of magic was so underwhelming but the arrival of Matt Ryan as Constantine brought in a little bit of hope only to once again deal out another non climatic battle. This time with the fully dubbed “Green Arrow” taking on Damien Dahrk (even though Neal McDonough was AMAZING). Oh yeah lets not forget the death of Laurel Lance/Black Canary which many people took to social media to exclaim their COMPLETE AND UTTER DISDAIN.
But last come to present day where we are at the cusp of a brand new season. With a new season once again there are a lot of changes. Thea and Diggle have left the team (but they are for sure coming back) Oliver (Stephen Amell) is recruiting a new team in Wild dog, Artemis, Mr. Terrific and Ragman. But what should make straying fans and those losing hope feel a bit of solace is that this time the bad guy is just a REGULAR BAD GUY. There’s no super powers, no crew of ninja assassins, no magic just a straight up badass in Tobias Church (Chad L. Coleman) and I for one am SUPER EXCITED.
Oh yeah i forgot to mention this is the last year for the Oliver Queen flashbacks.
But you need to know if nothing else can get you a little bit fired up for this season which premieres Wednesday October 5th on the CW (cheap plug) this two-minute promo posted by Stephen Amell himself should do it.
“Arrow” star Stephen Amell tweeted out this epic pic which may be a precursor of things to come on the EPIC 4-night crossover event featuring all of the shows within the “Arrow-verse” (Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl).
Now its way too early for them to be filming those particular episodes. So this may mean a select handful of heroes have been brought together for something (a photoshoot most likely) before that all goes down.
As seen above , Stephen Amell has shared an image of some famous feet as we see the footwear worn by Oliver Queen, The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), White Canary (Caity Lotz), and The Atom (Brandon Routh). This is a pretty fun tease of what’s to come on The CW, and with any luck, we’ll get to see what this impressive group were brought together for sooner rather than later.
