Its been a super week for Supergirl and it looks like the television season of 2016/17 will her getting around a bit more.
This last week seen a few announcements for CW’s plans for ‘Supergirl’ and one thing made absolutely clear is that we’ll being seeing a lot of crossover.
In a recent interview for Slashfilm Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim talks a little about how ‘Supergirl’ will be crossing over into ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, and ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’.
“It’s an external threat from outside the shows that will involve Supergirl coming over to Flash, then Arrow, then Legends of Tomorrow,” Guggenheim said.
The CW has been pretty much teasing the possible crossover since shortly after taking over production of ‘Supergirl’ from CBS.
However, Guggenheim was keen not to play up the characters involvement in these story-lines to much.
“I don’t like to oversell,” he noted. “She is going to be coming over but we’re not going to do a full-on Supergirl crossover episode. I don’t want to give you the wrong impression.”
Network president Mark Pedowitz didn’t specify who would be involved in this year’s annual crossover special, but said it will be “the biggest one ever” after ‘Supergirl’ moved from CBS to The CW for its second season.
In other related news. Fans got their first look at Tyler Hoechlin in his Superman suit, which we’ll see more of in the forthcoming second series of ‘Supergirl’.
Hoechlin will make his debut in Supergirl during the early episodes of the former CBS drama’s sophomore season when Superman/Kal-El/Clark Kent will visit his famous cousin, Kara (Melissa Benoist), in National City. Season two debuts Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
The Superman costume was designed by the show’s costume designer, Kiersten Ronning.
“It’s definitely incredibly surreal,” Hoechlin told fans at Comic-Con about taking on the iconic DC Comics character. “I know the character represents so much to so many people. This is not a generational thing. This is something literally spread across so much time. There is a lot of responsibility with this character. I’m really excited. I have not tried on the suit yet. That will be a moment for sure.”
