Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg held a press conference Monday just after the season premiere of Supergirl on The CW where he revealed to all those in attendance how some of the pre-existing DC heroes initially react to the new kid/alien on the block, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), seeing how she is one of the few aliens that the group has actually encountered.
“Some people, like Barry [Grant Gustin], already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her,” Kreisberg stated, referring to the previous Flash/Supergirl crossover. “Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her. Diggle [David Ramsey], as always, just when he thinks he’s seen it all, there’s a moment in it where somebody says, ‘This is Supergirl,’ and they say, ‘What’s so super about her?’ and she just lifts off the ground. Dig’s like, ‘I’m convinced.’”
But, of course, everyone in the CW sandbox doesn’t want to play nice. Specifically, Oliver. I know, shocking, right? “Part of Oliver’s [Stephen Amell] journey in those episodes is he’s kind of hit his breaking point for things he’s willing to accept,” Kreisberg said. “He’s had Mirakuru soldiers, the Lazarus Pit, magic, and Damien Darhk, but flying aliens who can incinerate you with their eyes is one beyond the pale for him. He’s keeping his distance, which is a very Oliver thing to do. Even Kara comments, ‘Does he not like me?’ Barry’s like, ‘No, that’s kind of how he treats everybody.’”
If Oliver’s got issues with Kara being an alien, he’s going to shit an eggroll when he discovers that their adversary in this colossal crossover are a technologically advanced race of aliens, of course, known as the Dominators. And if that’s not enough to put a crimp in Oliver’s quiver, the fact that the Dominators are bringing other races of aliens with them to invade Earth to eliminate metahumans will.
Expect The Arrow-Flash-Supergirl-Legends of Tomorrow crossover in November.
