Melissa Benoist Talks Supergirl/Flash Crossover, Possible Flarrow Appearance
Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh took the stage today at C2E2, and the first question on everyone's mind was, of course, the highly anticipated crossover between Supergirl and The Flash. Benoist assured fans that the episode would not be a disappointment, and previewed the already-apparent chemistry between her and Grant Gustin:

"I just have a feeling you guys are really going to like the episode because we had so much fun making it. Grant and I would have these moments looking at each other like 'This is so cool.'"

Possibly the most exciting part of the crossover episode will be the footrace between Supergirl and The Flash, which EP Andrew Kreisberg said was a nail-biter. The Flash is the "fastest man alive," but Supergirl is both a woman and an alien, so who knows if that applies to her. When asked by a fan which hero is faster, Chyler Leigh immediately said, "Supergirl," but Benoist seemed to disagree:

"She can fly faster than.... I broke the sound barrier at one point. But it's probably The Flash."

Benoist also stated that she hoped this crossover was just the beginning of her involvement in the rest of the DCTV universe. When asked whether she might appear on The Flash, she said:

"I hope so. That would be so fun. I would love to see Supergirl in the Flarrow world."

And when asked which DC characters they'd like to see on Supergirl, Leigh said that she hoped Alex would eventually become some version of Batgirl.

Opening quote
"I know that DC already has a Batgirl... But I think with all the technology the DEO has, she should have some gadgetry... It could be Batgirl-ish."
Closing quote

Supergirl airs on Mondays at 8:00pm on CBS. The Supergirl/Flash crossover debuts on Monday, March 28.
