Also as a result of Supergirl’s show moving from CBS to The CW, it might lead to more crossovers with DC Comics Shows like Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW, said that this year’s annual crossover event will be the biggest one ever. It remains to be confirmed if Supergirl and Superman will join this event.

Supergirl is scheduled to appear in Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, but whether Superman will join her is unknown
During and interview with CBR during Comic-Con in San Diego Guggenheim revealed the core structure of how the crossovers from Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow will work.
“It’s an external threat from outside the shows that will involve Supergirl coming over to The Flash, then Arrow, then Legends of Tomorrow,” said Guggenheim.
Due to the schedule mentioned before it is very likely that the threat will appear the first night of the week, and it will be dealt with throughout the whole week on each DC Comic show. Guggenheim did not reveal what kind of threat this would be, but he referred to it as an external one It is likely that it will be one different to any villain introduced in any show.
Thus far The CW has had two crossover events between its superhero shows. One had Oliver Queen and Barry Allen fighting alongside some members of the Legends of Tomorrow against Vandal Savage, while the other crossover had Barry Allen and Oliver Queen going to each other’s cities to fend off villains.
It is also unclear what will happen during The Flash Season three which trailer debuted on Comic-Con where Reverse-Flash makes an appearance. Also on Legends of Tomorrow Matt Letscher’s Reverse-Flash will help the Legion of Doom.
Regarding the Reverse-Flash suit he joked about getting his own suit for this new season, as he previously had to use one designed for Tom Cavanagh.
