Each season, The CW‘s Arrowverse pulls off a serious crossover occasion that brings collectively most of the universe’s heroes in a battle towards a wide range of threats. Usually, nonetheless, these threats and crossovers have main affect on all of the Arrowverse reveals besides Supergirl and for good purpose. Supergirl takes place not on Earth-1, however Earth-38, a world fully separate from Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. When Crisis on Infinite Earths hits this fall, although, Supergirl will see a larger affect than in years previous, at the very least based on showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner.
In a current interview with IGN, Queller and Rovner teased that the upcoming Crisis is a bit completely different throughout for Supergirl. That consists of how the present leads into it in addition to the penalties the occasion may have as soon as all the mud settles.
“We’re teeing up Crisis in our means, which is a little bit bit completely different from the means Arrow and The Flash are doing it,” Rover mentioned. “But it’s all interconnected, and the Monitor will be a part of that storytelling.”
Queller illuminated a bit about the affect of the crossover and the way it’s kind of larger than earlier years.
“In general, it has more impact than our crossovers usually do,” Queller mentioned. “It filters into the rest of our season where normally the crossovers are standalone.”
“The world shall be shaken up and there shall be fallout, post-Crisis,” Rovner added.
For followers, the greatest expectation they’ve for Crisis is that Supergirl might lastly be part of the “main” Earth after the occasion. In comics, Crisis on Infinite Earths served to streamline DC continuity, with the occasion successfully bringing the disparate worlds of the DC Universe into one when the Anti-Monitor is unleashed on the multiverse, destroying varied worlds. In the finish, solely 5 Earths remained, in the end merging right into a single shared universe. With that in thoughts, followers suppose that the Arrowverse Crisis will see Supergirl lastly introduced into “continuity” because it have been — one thing that be an enormous shakeup for that present.
Of course, Supergirl is not the solely present that followers hope Crisis will deliver into the major Arrowverse. Black Lightning, which has so far existed fully separate from the Arrowverse, is ready to make its first shared-universe look in Crisis on Infinite Earths, one thing that was confirmed final month — although the extent to which Crisis will affect Black Lightning is one which followers must wait a bit longer for. The crossover does not kick off till December.

Supergirl‘s fifth season will start Sunday, October sixth at 9/8c on The CW.
