Later in the afternoon at his other officeon the Warner Bros. lot, Berlanti meets with fellow producer Ali Adler and Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to go over looks for their upcoming revamp of Supergirl.
The show will follow 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, and
with a twist that that could melt fanboy brains, Berlanti says it's
possible this Supergirl could enter the worlds of Arrow and The Flash.
I don't watch Arrow but I do watch the Flash. And it is the upcoming crossover of those 2 shows that will lead me to finally watch an episode of Arrow. The idea of a continuity, a universe, is appealing ... just like it is in comics.
The thing going against this happening is that Supergirl is on CBS and Arrow and The Flash are on the CW. I can't imagine that one network wants to lead viewers to another. But that only needs to happen if there is a true crossover. I can see things like supporting characters and super-villains appear on the other shows. As long as there isn't a 'To Be Continued' on another channel, things should be okay. That would be fantastic.
But the other thing that got me here, that wasn't mentioned in the coverage, is Colleen Atwood helping with costumes. Atwood helps on Arrow. But I expect Supergirl to be more colorful, splashier, a daytime Superhero show rather than Arrow's nighttime street level costumes. Atwood did costumes on Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland, Big Fish, and Lemon Snickety's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The costumes there were fantastic.
I wonder just what she'll do for Supergirl's costume? There better be a classic S-shield.
And given the hint of a Flash/Supergirl team-up, I have a review in mind for next week!
