CBS announces Flash/Supergirl crossover

While it initially seemed far-fetched, The Flash will be making a run to National City as part of a crossover with Supergirl.

CBS made the announcement today that Grant Gustin’s CW Flash character is coming to sister station CBS’ Supergirl for a March 28 episode.

And finally, thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen,” the statement continued. “It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”

No news on if the rest of Team Flash will be making the trip as well, but I’d love to see a Cisco/Winn scene. And while I’m adding cast members, I’ll just go all the way and start wondering how soon before CW/CBS goes all the way and does a massive Justice League special with Green Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Firestorm, Black Canary, Atom and Hawkgirl.

What do you think of the news?
