What was once only a dream of the fans finally came true when it was announced The Flash would crossover with Supergirl, in an episode where Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) travels to another Earth and meets Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist). Having already done crossover episodes with Arrow on multiple occasions, The Flash is no stranger to these sorts of team-up adventures, and having also introduced alternate dimensions this season, the show is well equipped to send its star from one Earth to another (and from one network to another) and have it all make perfect sense.
The special crossover episode of Supergirl airs on CBS March 28, and is titled "Worlds Finest"; which is a nod to many a great team ups from DC Comics history, but especially those of Superman and Batman. However, within this now inclusive DC television universe (where Gotham sits as the odd show out) it could be argued the architects of these series -- most notably, Greg Berlanti -- are creating a new DC mythology. One where characters like Green Arrow, The Flash, and now Supergirl form something of a trinity, and perhaps even later, a league.
But that kind of thinking is years off. First, let's enjoy what looks to be a real treat of an episode, with Barry and Kara feeding off each other's upbeat attitudes and having what Supergirl exec producer Ali Adler refers to as "quite an adorable banter."
Check out a collection of photos from the forthcoming Supergirl episode -- featuring The Flash -- below:
As you can see from this smattering of images, the Supergirl/Flash crossover sees The Flash helping Supergirl take on both Livewire and Silver Banshee, whom it appears have kidnapped Kara's boss, Cat Grant. The episode marks a return for Livewire (Brit Morgan), who's already faced off against Supergirl earlier in the season, as well as the debut of Banshee -- better known to audiences as Kara's office rival, Siobhan Smythe (Italia Ricci). Not that Kara should really need Barry's help, but then what's the point of there being so many superheroes on TV if we don't get to see them fight alongside each other?
