How will the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow react to Supergirl when they finally meet her during the upcoming four-show Invasion! crossover?
Well, it's a bit of a mixed bag, according to showrunner Andrew Kreisberg, who teased a little bit of what fans might expect from the crossover during a recent talk with reporters.
“I think some people like Barry already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her. I think some people are instantly charmed by her — I think Sara’s got a little crush on her,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told a group fo reporters during a screening of Supergirl's next episode. “[John Diggle], as always...just when he think she’s seen it all, you know? There’s a moment in it where somebody says 'This is Supergirl,' and it’s like 'What’s so super about her?' She just lifts off the ground and Dig’s like, 'I’m convinced.' With Oliver, part of Oliver’s journey in these episodes is, he’s kind of hit his breaking point with things he’s willing to accept. He’s had Mirakuru soldiers and the Lazarus Pit and magic with Damien Darhk, but flying aliens who can incinerate you with their eyes is beyond the pale for him. So he sort of keeps his distance, which is a very Oliver thing to do. He keeps his distance, and Kara comments, 'Does he not like me?' And Barry’s like, 'No, that’s kind of how he treats everybody.' There’s fun interactions, and it’s exciting. Every time we get those dailies and we see them all together, it’s just insanity.”
Earlier this week, Rick Gonzalez -- who plays Team Arrow member Wild Dog on Arrow this season -- told ComicBook.com that he will be participating in the crossover as well.
“Wild Dog will be in the crossover, and he has a huge dislike for metahumans,” Gonzalez said. “So we’ll definitely see him not exactly rub well with The Flash and Supergirl and that’s just another glimpse into his psyche and his ideas and thinking about the world and the idea that there are people out there who have these sort of powers and who they are. Instead of saying ’Wow, these people can do these things,’ he says, ‘no, I don’t like you because this is what you bring to the table. This is what you represent to me.’”
Supergirl airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
