Andrew Kreisberg Talks Impact From Crossover On ‘Supergirl’

supergirl-crossover-bannerFans of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow will be having the best week ever as the 4-show crossover is starting properly tonight on the Scarlet Speedster’s show. The heroes of those CW shows will be fighting the alien race known as the Dominators from the DC Comics storyline known as “Invasion!”.

While the events of the crossover will surely have some impact on The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, post-crossover, it doesn’t seem that it will affect Supergirl that much in the second half of Season 2. During a CW Q&A, Comicbook.com chatted with Andrew Kreisberg, show-runner of all the DC shows, who revealed that the Girl of Steel’s show won’t be affected a lot by the crossover.

“It doesn’t really have that big an impact. She’s the one who brought the light. It was really Barry and Oliver who had to go on the journey and she brought the charm and the fun and the kick-ass-ness.”
