Producer Andrew Kreisberg teases an even bigger DC crossover event next season
Big things are in store for The CW‘s small screen DC Comics universe. EW caught up with DC series executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who teased a major DC crossover that is already being planned for next season! While the recent “Invasion” crossover delivered an unprecedented DC crossover between Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, the Supergirl episode ended up only featuring a connection in the final moments.
“Because we weren’t aware that we were going to switch ‘Supergirl’ from CBS to CW and it was really going to be part of it — that was the one show that didn’t have built-in shut-down days, so all the other ones did,” Kreisberg tells the outlet. “Melissa [Benoist] ended up being heavily in Flash and then in Arrow, so Supergirl was the one we needed to shut down the most and it was the one that we didn’t have any opportunity to. Now that we’ve gotten the early pickup and we’ve started designing the seasons, we’re building in those dark days, and actually more dark days on Supergirl than the other shows, to make it a little easier… Next year, we’re hoping to do a true four-way crossover.”
The Flash and Supergirl are already set to deliver a much-anticipated musical crossover episode next month that will feature Darren Criss as the Music Meister. As for what will eventually bring all four shows together again, only time will tell. Check back for updates as they become available!
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramo, Tom Cavanagh as Dr. Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West.
