IGN recently had the chance to sit down with The Flash star, Grant Gustin, ahead of his show's mid-season premiere this Tuesday. While teasing the return of the Scarlet Speedster, along with the arrivals of a few new characters, he was also quizzed about CBS' upcoming Supergirl TV show - currently being developed by The Flash & Arrow's very own Greg Berlanti:

"Supergirl, yeah. It also is exhausting to think about. But, if they’re like, “Hey we’re doing Supergirl now and we want the Flash to be on a Supergirl episode,” I’m going to get excited about that and then after that worry about how we’re going to make it work. But yeah, of course! I’m down. I’m down for any type of cool crossover as long as we can make it work."

Ever since he first nabbed the role of Barry Allen, Gustin has always shown incredible enthusiasm for this whole process. From the looks of it, he's certainly up for making more crossovers in the future. That said, it's also nice to see him a little concerned about the feasibility of the idea - making sure they can get it right, without comprimising either character.

What do you guys think? Are you excited to see The Flash and Supergirl crossover, or do you think they should just stick to their respective shows? Let us know in the comments below!

It would be cool if the shows crossed over, but I'm not dying to see this happen.
marvel72 - 1/18/2015, 2:20 PM
I didn't think this was happening at all,something about it being on a different network.
dcmarvel10 - 1/18/2015, 2:20 PM
Yeah im not excited to see them crossover.

Its going to take time..

Supergirl needs to be a fairly strong hit on it's own before a cross-over would happen. I'd say this would happen sometime after the 10th episode of the season. If the ratings are fairly strong, then this would be win/win for both shows.

But if Supergirl is struggling out the gate, then a cross/over would be pointless.

It could work, but hopefully the budgets match up.

He is such a nice guy, that grant gustin. so enthusiastic and full of life
bigdannymac - 1/18/2015, 2:23 PM
Keep in mind, if they don't cast Supergirl within the next month, the show won't be made. I'm not holding my breath.

I'd rather they focus on building the Titans show.. and introduce Supergirl as a character in the universe.. if people love her, THEN giver her a show.

Kind of like ATOM. People now love the character, and he'll get his own show in 2016
DannRamm113 - 1/18/2015, 2:25 PM

I can see how youd think that, but he is a tv actor. He probably can't handle the stuff it takes to work with a movie. that takes monthes of training, major acting skills, monthes of shooting, and major stunts. Plus publicity and potential "he's gonna suck" comments. Better stick to tv for now. Ezra will do fine

@bigdannymac I have a question for you since you said you work kinda to WB/DC and my question is how do you think WB/DC is handling with their comic book movies and shows so far?

The guy surprise me as the flash, either way i still prefer wally west because i grew up with the jl cartoons
dcmarvel10 - 1/18/2015, 2:35 PM
I kinda don't want arrow or flash to be connected to titans, i feel they wouldn't fit because of starfire and raven. They brought superpowers into the CWverse but not aliens and Demons and magic, that would take two more seasons from both shows to get to that concept.
DannRamm113 - 1/18/2015, 2:37 PM

I didn't mean he would suck. I mean he isn't ready.
batmanvsuperman - 1/18/2015, 2:38 PM
They should bring everyone from superman to batman that would be cool how can u do supergirl without superman or nightwing with out bats u cant just do it Scott admins for batman and Jensen ackles as green lantern and Jared padalecki as superman
dcmarvel10 - 1/18/2015, 2:39 PM
Grants doing fine on the flash, plus they get their own justice league on tv. But the guy is only known from Glee and now flash and other teenage CW stuff, and didn't have a lot of parts in those as well. He should stick to tv. im fine with the multiverse that geoff johns said is happening.

I think seeing Flash and Supergirl teaming up would be cool. The real question though is who would be the villain they would fight. Maybe have Monsieur Mallah, Brain, Ultra-Humanite & Gorilla Boss working together. I'd add Grodd, but I see him more working by himself. Maybe even Abra Kadabra because of the time travel that's on Flash. You need someone that could do damage to Supergirl and I don't think WB has any plans on using these characters for the big screen, so they should be okay on the small screen. Shade's another villain of Flash's that could also be a villain of Supergirl's. He isn't really used anymore in the comics, so he could work too.

@batmanvsuperman i think they said superman and batman can't come to tv because they are in the movies just like wonder woman can't come because shes getting her own movie same with aquaman. but with supergirl i think thats in its own universe or unless they ask tom welling back.
dcmarvel10 - 1/18/2015, 2:47 PM
WB obviously like her and she must have done great at the audition because if she did terrible A.) she wouldn't have gotten the part and B.) she wouldn't be getting her own movie and they wouldn't have hired a director and a screenwriter already.
grif - 1/18/2015, 2:56 PM
not interested at all.why not make a superman show.

and not that syfy krypton shit
Pasto - 1/18/2015, 4:20 PM
Agreed. Imagine if WB recast him as Wally West...

That'd be pretty dope.
MightyZeus - 1/18/2015, 10:29 PM

Well Marvel cast Chris Hemsworth who was a TV actor. He is well known for being in a crappy TV show called Home and Away and he's been in some bad movies too before Thor. Same can be said for Anne Hathaway who played Catwoman.

So obviously Gal Gadot did well in the audition.
MightyZeus - 1/18/2015, 10:57 PM

I was replying to your comment towards Gal Gadot

"Yeah, you would have a great argument there if it wasn't for the fact DC castes Gal Gadot as Wonder Women who can't even act as well as a T.V. actor."

I just want the DC universe of TV to become what the Avengers one is in the movies
capaware - 1/19/2015, 2:47 AM
One thing Flash and Supergirl have in common is that they were both killed in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. Since the "Crisis" has been alluded to in THE FLASH TV series, a crossover could have them fighting the Anti-Monitor!
JasonBlue - 1/19/2015, 3:54 AM
I would rather that Supergirl crosses over with TITANS.
