Fans of The CW’s corner of the DCTV universe have grown to eagerly anticipate the crossover events that occur each fall. And while last year’s crossover, “Invasion!”, was met with a warm response from audiences, some felt that Supergirl, the newest show to enter the fold at the time, had not had a large enough significance in the full crossover story.
But according to those involved with the show, fans can expect that to change with this year’s crossover. While speaking to ComicBook.com at San Diego Comic-Con, Supergirlshowrunner Robert Rovner hinted at the crossover truly being a four-show event. Check it out in the clip above!
“It’s a true four-part crossover that will start [with Supergirl] and be on this fall,” Rovner revealed. “And that’s all we can say about it. It’s going to be super.”
“It’s going to be awesome!” echoed co-showrunner Jessica Queller. “Best crossover ever!”
While the crew were decidedly mum about the crossover’s plot, the cast began to joke about the massive scale of the crossover – and the potential of bringing other shows into the fold.
“We’re going to have a new series called Crossover.” joked Mehcad Brooks, who plays Supergirl‘s Jimmy Olsen/Guardian. “And it’s only going to be crossovers. Like Jane the Virgin [would become] Jane the Super Virgin.”
“Just every show in Vancouver,” added The Girl of Steel herself, Melissa Benoist.
While it’s safe to assume that those crossovers won’t occur, fans are set to experience a DCTV crossover unlike any other – which will be led by Supergirl, on The CW later this fall.
Supergirl season 3 will premiere on Monday, October 9th, at 8/7c, on The CW.
Based on the DC Comics character, Supergirl AKA Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero who she was always meant to be on The CW series, Supergirl.
