Storyline details have not yet been disclosed, but Grant Gustin‘s speedster will make tracks for Supergirl and join forces with Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel on Monday, March 28, CBS announced on Wednesday.
“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl,” Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, executive producers on both series, said in a statement. “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,” the statement continued. “It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”
Indeed, just weeks ago at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the possibility of The CW’s superhero series crossing over with CBS’ Supergirl was a hot topic. “As a fan, I would love it… but a lot of things would have to go right, a lot of people would have to say yes, for that to happen,” Berlanti shared. And to take place during this TV season, “It would have to be figured out soon, in the next month or so.”
And apparently it was.
How do you think Barry Allen/The Flash will make his way to National City and meet Supergirl, seeing as none of The CW’s DC Comics series have acknowledged the existence of Superman or his cousin? UPDATE: Does the episode title offer a clue?
