Supergirl Universe Won't Merge Yet

In an interview with Andrew Kreisberg, Entertainment Weekly was able to confirm that any plans for the Supergirl universe to merge with the Flarrow universe are not in the cards, at least for now. Kreisberg was quick to say that Kara's ability to go back and forth from the two universes will be very possible but Arrow and Flash meeting Superman, Gotham, and the good folks of National City may not happen so far. That doesn't mean that there isn't a way that the characters won't be able to interact with one another but put simply, in the Flash's universe, Kal-El and Kara didn't make it to Earth for some reaason. Here's exactly what Kreisberg had to say:

As revealed during The Flash-Supergirl crossover last year, Supergirl hails from a different universe. Are you planning on bringing Supergirl into our universe?

Not for her entire world, but Kara will be traveling from her dimension to our dimension, “our” being the world that The Flash, Arrow, and Legends lives in.

The interview with Kreisberg continued and shared many interesting tidbits. Here are a few that stood out to us. Read the full interview here.

What brings Mon-El (Chris Wood) to Earth?

He’s brought to Earth because he’s from Daxam, just as in the comics, which was a sister world to Krypton. The destruction of Krypton also resulted in a very bad day for Daxam. That’s how he escaped that cataclysm and came to Earth. What’s interesting about it is that Kara has always had mentors, whether it was Laura [Benanti], or it was the Danvers, or whether it was Cat, or Clark, but now she has somebody to take care of, she has somebody to mentor. He’s fresh off the boat — as far as he’s concerned. He got into a pod on Daxam and then the next day was on Earth. She says to somebody in one of the early episodes that she wasn’t sent to Earth to be Supergirl, she was sent to Earth to watch Clark, take care of him and to be a protector. In a way, Mon-El coming here, she’s finally now getting to fill that original mission.

Can they trust him?

Can you trust anybody? You’re very bright. [Laughs.]

What’s up for Alex (Chyler Leigh) this season?

In the first two episodes, Alex is struggling with Clark being in town. It sets up this interesting dynamic where she has been everything to Kara; she’s her family, and she has a little bit of a chip on her shoulder about Clark. She loves him, he’s family and she knows he loves them, but he left Kara on their doorstep. Kara is so excited to see Clark and so excited to be with him, but it’s almost a little bit like Alex feels taken for granted, because she’s the family member who’s put in the time. It sets up an interesting conflict between her and Kara in the first couple of episodes.

Will Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan Tatum) return?

We hope so. We don’t have any immediate plans, but that’s not because we aren’t in love with Jenna.

Is Laura Benanti coming back at all?

Yes, she is. She’s coming back as the A.I. hologram. But it’s actually a funny scene with the A.I. hologram, which we didn’t get to do last year, so it was very fun to write that scene.

Pretty awesome stuff! Who's excited now? Let us know in the comments below and in the forum. Also keep this site advertisement free and visit our support page!
