Calling all Speedsters, Arrowheads, Legends, and Karaphiles! This is not a drill!
This week, the CW announced it's new schedule- featuring the newly acquired Supergirl, plucked from the hands of CBS to join her DC comrades. But the good news didn't stop there! CW president Mark Pedowitz announced that it's DC universes won't stay separate for long.
That's right- this year's annual crossover will be the biggest yet, with heroes from Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl coming together in one epic event. Go ahead and pinch yourselves, DC fans, but I promise you're not dreaming.
Of course, this development shouldn't come as a total surprise. As the hotspot for all-things DC, the CW has a proven track record for cross-promoting it's shows. The Flash's Barry Allen was first introduced as a bumbling CSI, adorkably chasing the supernatural in an effort to find his mother's killer. Likewise, Legends of Tomorrow characters Kendra Saunders, Carter Hall, and Ray Palmer, each appeared first on The Flash and Arrow, respectively.
And with such an overlapping fanbase, the network would be crazy not capitalize on the...well... craziness!
Of course, this proposed crossover does present a few logistical challenges. Fans who watched the Supergirl/Flash crossover episode earlier this spring (originally broadcast on CBS), will recall that Kara's story actually takes place in a separate universe from that of the CW's original Big Three. This brings up the question of where this super-party will take place. Will Kara somehow wander onto another Earth? Or will Barry make his way back to National City with a fleet of superheros in tow? Looks like the writers will have to get creative!
One thing's for sure: This episode (or string of episodes, morelike) is bound to be a ratings goldmine. And I, for one, couldn't be more excited to watch the madness unfold.
So what's your take on this superhero soiree? Any ideas who the villain will be? Sound off with your theories in the comments!
