The Supergirl/Flash Crossover Gets a Poster, a Plot and an Easter Egg

CBS has released a  poster and plot details for the much anticipated Supergirl/Flash crossover episode. The plot synopsis reads:

“Worlds Finest” – Kara gains a new ally when the lightning-fast superhero The Flash (Grant Gustin) suddenly appears from an alternate universe and helps Kara battle Siobhan, aka Silver Banshee, and Livewire in exchange for her help in finding a way to return him home, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, March 28 (8:00-9:00 PM) on the CBS Television Network.

This confirms what we all pretty much suspected. Supergirl and the Flash live in different dimensions. It’s a great solution that explains why Supergirl never pops in to help the Flash, but still leaves the door open for occasional meetings between the two.

The  poster for the episode doesn’t give us much new information, but is a fun Easter Egg for comic book collectors with long memories. It recreates the classic cover of Superman #199 from 1967 drawn by industry legend Carmine Infantino,.

“Worlds Finest” airs on Monday, March 28 on CBS.


Warner Bros. releases animated trailer for Vixen

As part of Warner Bros. massive television panel at San Diego Comic Con, the CW premiered the trailer for Vixen, a digital only cartoon coming this fall featuring DC Comics first African-American female superhero to headline her own title.

Megalyn Echikunwoke will voice the titular Vixen, owner of the “Tantu Totem,” a mystic artifact that gives the wearer the ability to copy the powers and abilities of any nearby animals.

Vixen will be released online via CW Seed, and will feature appearances by Flash star Gustin Grant and Arrow‘s Steven Arnell reprising their television roles. Echikunwoke will return the favor, guest starring as Vixen on CW’s live action superhero shows next season.

Vixen will premiere Aug. 25 online on CW Seed.

Editor’s Note: Story was corrected to reflect that Vixen was the first female African-American superhero to get her own comic at DC. Bumblebee was the actual first female African-American superhero at the company.
