Mark Pedowitz’s presentation in the Television Critics Association press tour was full of revelation and announcements. People focused on the possibility of a “Supergirl” crossover in other DC comics.
According to Pedowitz, the producer of “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and the upcoming “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” Greg Berlanti will make the final call regarding the crossover with Supergirl.
Pedowitz said Tuesday in the event, “I leave that to Greg Berlanti and his team. If they can make it work, that’s great. If they cannot, that’s fine. We are open to crossovers,” adding, “That’s Greg’s call because he understands his shows better than I do because he’s there.”
CBS Entertainment chair Nina Tassler also has plans to have a “Supergirl” crossover as mentioned by Variety. However, Pedzowitz decided not to comment on the same. CBS currently have newcomer TV series “Supergirl” to its credit.
When asked, he said, “I can’t address CBS’ perspective on that, but I can address ours. We had ‘Arrow’ and ‘Flash’ and we were not planning to do another DC character.”
While referencing “Legends of Tomorrow” Mark said, “Last year at this time, we had no intention of doing another DC project,” adding, “What happened is as the characters were introduced in ‘Arrow’… and in ‘Flash’… we began to realize this is a great opportunity, and DC agreed…this gives up the opportunity to look at a lot of characters.”
Pedowitz also made a mention of comic-inspired “iZombie” from Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, noting the network is extremely proud of its freshman run and is looking forward to Season 2. Another comic coming to life at CW is Archie’s “Riverdale,” which is currently in development for 2016-17 with Berlanti at the helm.

CW currently has “Arrow” and “The Flash” from DC comics and it is soon going to telecast “DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow.” It could not get a place for “Supergirl.” It seems that the channel has some amount of regret and this “Supergirl” crossover can possibly make it light.
