Looks like the movement to jumpstarting some serious superhero crossovers and fanservice has just picked up, as two sets of rumors via Bleeding Cool may just be the kick that fans of Supergirl, The Flash, Constantine, and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow need!
According to Bleeding Cool's first report, CBS may be looking to join forces with The CW for an ACTUAL Flash/ Supergirl crossover sometime in May 2016. This would propel CBS then to option for nine more episodes for the first season of the new superhero show starring the "The Girl of Steel", and it would add a tremendous ratings boost at the same time if The CW's Grant Gustin and friends paid Melissa Benoist a visit. It would be a reunion of two Glee stars... And it would technically add Supergirl to the Arrowverse proper as well.
The second report from BC is a pretty interesting story as well, as the report suggests that Matt Ryan may actually return to reprise his role as John Constantine as a series regular for DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 in 2017! Following his one-time guest appearance in Arrow Season 4's fifth episode "Haunted" to restore the soul of the resurrected Sara Lance/ Canary, many fans have clamored for the fan favorite's return in his own show. As the rumor suggests that Legends of Tomorrow is looking to shuffle and change cast members with each season, adding Constantine would be a very welcomed compromise. The story also suggests that a new role may be cast for "The Vampire Diaries" star Steven R. McQueen, who wasn't shy about wanting to be cast as Nightwing.
All that aside, these are just rumors on Thanksgiving week, but happy ones for DC Comics fans to read about! Catch the Arrow/ Flash crossover next week!
