The other day, we received a handful of DC television rumors. The first said that, if Supergirl is given a full season, then a crossover with The Flash will happen. The second suggested that John Constantine would be a series regular on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season two, if it happens. Now, Bleeding Cool has added some updates on these rumors, offering new details on one and seemingly debunking the other.
Regarding the additional nine episodes of Supergirl, CBS may be required to do a Flash crossover if the network orders them. The crossover would mark a cross-network collaboration between CBS and The CW; the latter is co-owned by CBS and Warner Bros. Currently, Supergirl is set for 13 episodes, but if it is ordered for a full season, the total will rise to 22 episodes.
As for what the crossover will be about, Bleeding Cool suggests that it will focus on the New Krypton storyline. Basically, thousands of Kryptonians are freed from the bottled city of Kandor by Brainiac and come to Earth. Meanwhile, a new planet is being created for them. It is unknown how much of this plot, if anything, will be incorporated into the show.
Meanwhile, Bleeding Cool backtracks on the Constantine in Legends of Tomorrow rumor. According to the site, it is unclear if The CW is keen to renew the show, since it is “incredibly” expensive. Instead, the network may opt to air a new show in its place. The recent trailer definitely suggested that the series will be on a huge scale with stunning visual effects, particularly on a CW budget. However, if this rumor is true, then it shows that there’s still a limit on what they can do.
Again, this is all rumor, so take it with a pinch of salt for the time being. Hopefully, we will receive official clarification on this soon.
