#1 Supergirl May Appear With Arrow And The Flash

Despite the upcoming Supergirl TV series being made for CBS, a different network to Arrow and The Flash, its head producer is Greg Berlanti, the same producer as the latter two shows. This stretch further with CBS part-owning The CW, where The Flash and Arrow currently reside. So a crossover is entirely possible.
When pressed on the matter, Berlanti had this to say: “Later in the afternoon at his other office on the Warner Bros. lot, Berlanti meets with fellow producer Ali Adler and Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to go over looks for their upcoming revamp of Supergirl. The show will follow 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, and with a twist that that could melt fanboy brains, Berlanti says it’s possible this Supergirl could enter the worlds of Arrow and The Flash.
