With The CW’s The Flash and Arrow crossover episode, Flash vs. Arrow, coming up, it’ll probably come as no surprise that Greg Berlanti is aiming to put his upcoming Supergirl TV show in the same realm as well. CBS only first made the straight-to-series commitment a little over two months ago, but during a recent interview, Berlanti revealed that he’s already working on the show with producer Ali Adler and costume designer Colleen Atwood, and also that he’s hoping to bring Supergirl into The Flash and Arrow’s world.
Hit the jump for more on this possible The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl shared universe.
EW did a profile on Berlanti for their latest issue titled “The Man Behind the Mask.” The piece is a good read and well worth checking out, but here’s the bit focusing on Berlanti’s plans for Supergirl:
“Later in the afternoon at his other office on the Warner Bros. lot, Berlanti meets with fellow producer Ali Adler and Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to go over looks for their upcoming revamp of Supergirl. The show will follow 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, and with a twist that that could melt fanboy brains, Berlanti says it’s possible this Supergirl could enter the worlds of Arrow and The Flash.”
I’m already getting a bit tired of the term “shared universe,” but Berlanti is in the position to put the concept to good use. Arrow’s given this world a solid foundation and I’m hearing Flash vs. Arrow is a blast. Why not kick things up a notch and put Supergirl in the mix? Plus, wouldn’t it make sense for Berlanti to introduce Supergirl in The Flash much like they did with Barry Allen in Arrow?
So far, what we know about the Supergirl show is that it’ll include Kara Zor-El, aka Kara Danvers, and Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, but Berlanti also added this little bit on what happens to the title character in the pilot episode:
“The events of the pilot get her to finally emerge as the true hero she was meant to be.”
It seems likely that Supergirl will wind up a fall 2015 show, so we’ve got a long way to go until we get to see how it all comes together, but at least we’ve got that Flash/Arrow episode coming up.
