Arrow & The Flash Renewed

During the CW's panel at The Critics Association today, it was announced that Arrow and The Flash have both been renewed for season 4 and season 2 respectively.  During the panel, it was asked if the teams on both Arrow and The Flash were aware of 'Supergirl'.  Both are completely aware and most likely will work with some crossover.  When asked why CBS was developing the show and not the CW, TV guide tweeted:

Why #Supergirl being developed at CBS instead of The CW? Pedowitz: "We were aware of it. You don't want to become just one thing." #tca15

Being that the CW is half owned by CBS and the other half by Warner Brothers, cross-over is not going to be a problem.  In fact as we reported eariler,  its written in the contract that Supergirl gets to exist in the Arrow/Flash universe.  So now we are wondering, could Supergirl get her start in a season finale of Flash or Arrow, much like how Flash started on Arrow?

TVline is reporting the possibility of more costumed heroes and cross-overs in the wake of the Flash and Arrow success:

With Arrow and its offshoot The Flash flourishing in the wake of their two-night crossover, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “We are having some preliminary discussions about expanding [that] universe, but we have not vetted them out.” Stressing the need to be “judicious” about adding more DC Comics fare, he posed, “Could there be another hour in that universe? Possibly. As long as there’s no audience fatigue.

No direct language here about Supergirl being in the mix but since Flash got his start on Arrow, it isn't impossible.

What do you think, would you like to see Supergirl get her start in a season finale on Arrow or The Flash before her first episode on CBS?  Comment below and let us know what you think.
