Crossover Between ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl’ Confirmed

After much speculation, DC has confirmed a crossover between The Flash and Supergirl.

The report states that Grant Gustin will play the Scarlet Speedster on an episode of Supergirl, set to air March 28th.

“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl—The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!,” said The Flash and Supergirl Executive Producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.  “We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”

DC also asks fans who they think would win in a footrace between the two heroes. Could they be teasing something that will play into the actual episode? Barry was known to race Kara’s cousin in the comics, sparking a friendly rivalry between the two.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8pm on CBS; The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8pm on The CW.
