Andrew Kreisberg Sheds Some Light On How Green Arrow And The Legends Will React To Supergirl

It was recently made clear that Supergirl is not going to become part of the Arrowverse, but the Girl of Steel is still going to swoop in for the planned four night crossover event this winter on The CW, which will also incorporate characters from The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.

How Kara Danvers will end up finding her way from her world to theirs isn’t clear just yet, but in a new interview, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg shed some light on how the different heroes are going to react when they meet Supergirl. After all, no matter how many powerful and colourful heroes and villain live on their world, none of them are in the same ballpark as a Kryptonian.

Barry Allen has already met the hero, so Kreisberg pointed out that he’s “completely cool with her,” but what about the Green Arrow?

“Part of Oliver’s journey in those episodes is he’s kind of hit his breaking point for things he’s willing to accept. He’s had Mirakuru soldiers, the Lazarus Pit, magic, and Damien Darhk, but flying aliens who can incinerate you with their eyes is one beyond the pale for him. He’s keeping his distance, which is a very Oliver thing to do. Even Kara comments, ‘Does he not like me?’ Barry’s like, ‘No, that’s kind of how he treats everybody.’”

A sneak peek of the two meeting has already been revealed, so they’ll no doubt end up getting on fairly well. As for some of the supporting characters, it sounds like both Sara Lance and Diggle will have very different reactions to meeting Supergirl. Based on past experience, the latter’s will no doubt end up being very funny indeed.

“Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her. Diggle [David Ramsey], as always, just when he thinks he’s seen it all, there’s a moment in it where somebody says, ‘This is Supergirl,’ and they say, ‘What’s so super about her?’ and she just lifts off the ground. Dig’s like, ‘I’m convinced.'”

The CW has not yet announced when this crossover begins, but as mentioned above, it’s set to take place over four consecutive nights. With any luck, this is going to be the first of many crossovers, especially after that brilliant Fight Club 2.0 video gave us an idea as to what we should expect from it.

For now, Supergirl airs every Monday night on The CW.
