With the announcement that Netflix has ordered two seasons of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, fans of The CW’s Riverdale have been hoping that a crossover between the two Archie Comics-inspired shows would be an inevitability. It may be time to put the breaks on those expectations, at least for now.
Chris Hayner, who co-hosts Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast, reveals that he spoke to CW president Mark Pedowitz and that there are currently no plans to have a Riverdale/Sabrina crossover event in the same vein as the network’s Arrowverse. As Hayner explains, the priority is to successfully launch Sabrina:
“Based on what he said, they are completely focused on getting Sabrina off the ground on Netflix and not thinking about crossovers at all, but they hope there might be a possibility sometime in the future. But they want to establish Sabrina as its own entity on Netflix before they even start thinking about it.”

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, set to be a much darker take on the Archie Comics character, is now in development set to be released in either late 2018 or 2019. The series will be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Lee Toland Krieger, with the series being co-produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The show will be executive produced by Aguirre-Sacasa, Krieger, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.
B-List DC Comics Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movies
DC Comics are ripe of amazing characters with potential. If Marvel can successfully make an Iron Man movie, something that was considered a bad idea at the time due to the character’s unpopular status, then DC can do something similar with a different character. Batman and Superman are great, but they don’t deserve all the attention in this fascinating universe.
With so many DC-themed movies on the horizon over at Warner Brothers, it makes sense for producers to dig through back issues to search for interesting stories about characters who aren’t necessarily known by the full public to adapt. There are no such thing as bad characters — sometimes certain writers just aren’t able to bring out the character’s full potential in various stories. Even the best heroes and villains can have bad movies (I’m looking at you Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), so all these characters need is a strong, passionate filmmaker to come around and turn them into a hit.
