Since Supergirl was announced fans have wondered what if any connection it would have with the rest of the DCTV shows. Last year in the Supergirl/The Flash crossover we found out that Kara is a part of the Arrowverse, but not in the Prime Universe, but in the Multiverse within it. New hope came when The CW announced that they will be picking up Supergirl for season 2 after CBS opted not to renew it. Fans went into overdrive with theories on how they work the show into the Arrowverse Prime Universe with The Flash doing Flashpoint this season, an epic 4-part crossover, as well as a musical crossover between Supergirl and The Flash were announced. Now through an interview with Entertainment Weekly we finally have our answer.
As revealed during The Flash-Supergirl crossover last year, Supergirl hails from a different universe. Are you planning on bringing Supergirl into our universe?
Not for her entire world, but Kara will be traveling from her dimension to our dimension, “our” being the world that The Flash, Arrow, and Legends lives in.
This should end speculation on whether or not Flashpoint would unite the universes. The Flashpoint storyline that kicked off the third season of The Flash, centering on an alternate timeline triggered when Barry Allen traveled through time to prevent his mother’s murder. Even though The Flash set things right by allowing his mother to be killed by Reverse Flash the world he returned to wasn’t exactly the same. The series introduced the concept of a multiverse in Season 2, with The Flash journeying to Earth-2 as well as Supergirl’s world, that fans have since dubbed Earth-CBS.
Even though Kreisberg has shot down that theory it doesn’t mean that the two universes may never merge. Since season 1 of The Flash they have eluded to Crisis on Infinite Earths, a comic event where Barry Allen died saving all of reality and merging multiple Earths in the Multiverse into one unified Earth. The only problem is that isn’t supposed to happen until 2024, if you believe what you read in newspapers from the future.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 pm ET, and stars Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as James “Jimmy” Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers and Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, with appearances by Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant and Tyler Hoechlin as Superman. The second season makes the leap from CBS to The CW October 10, 2016.
