Hang onto your seats, folks, because this news is super: The CW four-way crossover event is coming! It’s been announced that the CW will be doing a giant crossover event with its four inter-connected shows: Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and (newly moved from CBS) Supergirl. Fans were hoping something like this would happen. Now it’s official! This article from Entertainment Weekly provides the details:
Ahead of its upfront presentation on Thursday, CW chief Mark Pedowitz touted Supergirl’s move from CBS to The CW. “Just imagine what our superhero crossover episode is going to look like come December,” he told reporters, later following up by calling the event “our biggest one ever.”
Pedowitz then made it official during The CW’s upfront presentation. “Next season, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and now Supergirl will join forces in our annual crossover event, our biggest ever,” he said.
How will they make it work?
We knew this was a strong possibility thanks to a previous announcement that we’d be getting a crossover every year. But it’s still very exciting to have this epic event confirmed. As many know, Barry messed with the timeline in the Season Two finale, and that opens up a world of opportunity. A world of opportunity that could lead to Supergirl’s Earth. Time travel and world hopping is next to common in the CW’s shared universe, so I’m sure the showrunners will find a clever way to get Supergirl in the mix.
Time (whether it be past, present, or future) will tell how they tie the strings together. In the meantime, we’ll have to patiently wait for more details to be revealed. No doubt we’ll be getting previews and teasers soon. Maybe we’ll get another great video of all the heroes and villains sparring together while some fun music sets the pace.
Are you excited about this four-way crossover, or concerned that having too many shows involved will lead to a mess? Let us know in the comments!
