After months of speculation and feverish fan dreaming, it’s happening. Grant Gustin will appear as Barry Allen/The Flash on an upcoming episode of Supergirl! For all of the details surrounding the announcement, read on!
In a surprise announcement by Executive Producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, the long gestating rumour of Supergirl living in the Arrow-verse has become official. Set to appear in an upcoming episode of Supergirl is The Flash‘s very own Grant Gustin.
While specifics on the crossover are under wraps, Berlanti and Kreisberg had this to say on the big unveiling.
“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! 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.”
As stated, exactly what the crossover is set to entail remains a mystery, but given that The Flash is currently neck deep in the multi-verse, it wouldn’t be out of the question for that to carry over.
