Stephen Amell Thinks a ‘Supergirl’ and ‘Arrow’ Crossover Will Happen

After a premiere season on CBS, last week came the news that Supergirl would be getting a new home, moving to The CW for its second season and joining the ranks of Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The move certainly makes a lot of sense – the network’s resident DC Comics mastermind Greg Berlanti was a producer on the first season, which featured a crossover episode with the hugely-successful Flash series.

So with four DC-related titles on the same network, does that create opportunities for more interaction between Supergirl and the other members of the DC roster? After all, the aforementiond crossover episode established that Supergirl and The Flash take place in alternate universes, which makes for a pretty big obstacle.

But Arrow star Stephen Amell doesn’t seem too concerned about that little detail – in fact, he thinks an Arrow and Supergirl crossover is inevitable. When asked if he could envision a team-up, he told Loaded:

“Do bears you-know-what in the woods? I think that it’s highly likely that if you have four DC superhero properties on one network, that is an opportunity that may not exist again and certainly hasn’t ever existed in the history of television. I would expect that we would do something.”

Granted, this isn’t exactly a confirmation that we’ll see Kara Zor-El popping up in an episode of Arrow, or that we’ll see Oliver Queen standing on a rooftop when Supergirl flies past. But the shared universe between The CW’s existing lineup of DC adaptations has worked extremely well thus far, so don’t be too surprised if the creative minds behind Supergirl find some way to bridge that gap and create some additional opportunities for their heroes to share a little bit of screen time.

No word yet on when the new season of Supergirl will premiere, but as always, we’ll keep you posted.
