Greg Berlanti Gives New Tease Of 4-Part DCTV Crossover

Ever since it was announced that Supergirl would be moving to the CW, everyone soon began hoping for a 4-part crossover between CW’S ever expanding DC Television Universe. This crossover was soon confirmed, and Greg Berlanti himself has now confirmed that they are just about to start work on writing the crossover episodes. While Berlanti wouldn’t reveal much, he did tease that the plan is “to probably try to have one unifying threat, as opposed to different things on different ones, which is what the first year was”.

So it looks like this year’s mega crossover will be similar to last years, which set up Legends of Tomorrow, and have one villain across all 4 episodes. Based on the fact that apparently Supergirl will be the unifying link for the crossover, it seems possible the threat could be from her universe.

Who do you think this villain will be? Sound off in the comments below.

  • It’ll be the Anti-Monitor, and his destruction will merge Supergirl’s world into the Arrowverse.

      That would be incredibly cool, but I’m still hoping for a massive Crisis story line that would run through both movies and TV shows some years from now, after the DCEU is firmly established.

    It’s a damn shame that The Berlanti-Verse interpretation of DC (in scope and ambition) is runnin’ rough-shod and circles around dceu.

    • The Arrowverse is in the DCEU. It’s an “Extended Universe,” not simply or only a “Cinematic Universe.”

      The films are simply one reality in the multiverse, which includes all the films that came before which exist in their own universes, as well as the animated shows and the comics themselves.

      And I actually really liked Suicide Squad. While I had problems with the theatrical cut of BvS that was vastly improved by the UE, Suicide Squad is actually very good. I honestly don’t know what the critics are smoking, and if they had problems with this film then I might have to start really wondering about if there’s some kind of Journi-List that critics belong to where they decide how to grade films, because this was not a bad film. At all. And Man of Steel remains one of the greatest superhero films of all time.

      So, Man of Steel, the UE of BvS, and Suicide Squad actually make for a decent pairing.

      Better than Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man 2, by my reckoning.

        Thank you for saying this. This is precisely what I’ve been saying for months now.

        Not only that, but when Flash showed the Multiverse in one episode, didn’t we see a scene from MOS, along with Supergirl?

        • I don’t remember that. I do remember a scene from the JWS Flash show.

            LOL! Don’t mind Sammy-rai…he be wishcraftin’ again.

        Still doesn’t negate the fact Berlanti-Verse is a far more superior and cohesive product than its “ALLEGED” theatrical counter-parts.

        • Dude, you’re trolling up the wrong tree. There is no this vs. that. That garbage only exists because of loudmouth trolls, while the majority of fans want to enjoy everything.

          How “cohesive” was the MCU after Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man 2?

          Because that’s where we’re at right now with the DC films in the DCEU.

          Marvel did Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk (which was connected to the MCU after filming with a tacked-on Stark cameo), Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, then The Avengers.

          DC will have Man of Steel, BvS, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, and Justice League.

          For everyone talking about “rushing” things, that’s only one less movie until the big team-up movie.

          Yes, there were major issues with the BvS theatrical cut. It probably should’ve been two films; a Man of Steel sequel in 2015 and then BvS this year, as there was enough plot for two films. So that’s a mistake.

          But Suicide Squad was awesome. Way more fun than the Iron Man film masquerading as a Captain America/Avengers film from earlier this year.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Suicide Squad was popcorn fun in the same way that THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN was fun, but once your dc fangurl oxytocin levels subsides, you should’ve came to the realization that s.s. was a sloppily scripted mess! – It’s only saving grace was Viola Davis’s performance…That’s why the bad word of mouth resulted in a whopping 41% drop in ticket sales from Friday to Saturday. This PLAN 9-LIKE train wreck will be lucky to make over $500 million globally.

          • Again, you’re trolling up the wrong tree. I enjoyed my time with Suicide Squad, and I’ll be paying to see it again. And then I’ll buy it on Blu Ray. It’s the second most fun I’ve had at the cinema this year. Shane Black’s The Nice Guys remains No. 1.

    Not a fan of Arrow lately but I’d watch it for this crossover
