The CW’s Arrowverse is at a small transition period. After the franchise’s flagship series, Arrow, came to a finish, shows such as Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman, and also the newly-announced Superman & Lois were placed to select the reigns, however things haven’t always worked out that way. Late last year, The CW declared Supergirl’s sixth season are it’s last, leaving the Girl of Steel’s future from the Arrowverse up in the atmosphere. Luckily, the eighth season of The Flash will give an opportunity for Kara Danvers to get the send-off she deserves.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic complicating production and also the huge scale of “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” that the Arrowverse went without a crossover this year. Things will return to normal this autumn, however, as The Flash will begin season 8 using five event-like episodes that contain Barry Allen teaming up with other personalities. The characters set to combine with the Scarlet Speedster have yet to be shown, but if there is anybody that deserves an additional crossover, it is Supergirl.
Back after Supergirl was still on CBS, Barry made his way to Earth-38’s National City to aid Kara in a mission to shoot down Livewire. In recent years that followed, Supergirl only became more and more a part of their annual crossovers, to the point at which she was just as interchangeable with them since the Flash and Green Arrow. Unfortunately, less than a year following the hero formally joined the Arrowverse’s equivalent of the Justice League at”Crisis,” it had been disclosed her series was coming to an end.
But without a crossover this season for Kara to say proper goodbyes to another Arrowverse heroes, it seems as though her story will probably be pristine, creating a possible crossover with The Flash even more significant. By joining Barry on one last mission, Supergirl can go leave the franchise during an event, like Oliver Queen did in”Crisis” – well, possibly without needing to lose her life.
Having Supergirl yield for a crossover after her series endings opens the door for future looks. Even though the first season of Superman & Lois had minimal relations into the larger Arrowverse, things will change moving forward, and that better to drop by the Kent Farm compared to Kara. Supergirl may be coming to a conclusion, but it does not indicate that the Girl of Steel must say goodbye for good.
Supergirl celebrities Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Nicole Maines as Dreamer and Jesse Rath as Brainiac-5. The show returns Tuesday, Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
