The December 5, 2014 issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine – now hitting newsstands – features a profile on Greg Berlanti, the executive producer of many current hit shows including Arrow, Flash, and The Mysteries of Laura. It’s a fascinating article about his approach to the different series, talking about his origins in the business with shows like Dawson’s Creek and his one comic-based project that wasn’t so much of a hit, the Green Lantern movie.
As has been mentioned before, one of Berlanti’s new projects is a Supergirl TV project for CBS, which he is developing with Ali Adler and Sarah Schechter. There’s a section talking about what’s currently going on in production, and there’s a very interesting nugget within:
Later in the afternoon at his other office on the Warner Bros. lot, Berlanti meets with fellow producer Ali Adler and Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood to go over looks for their upcoming revamp of Supergirl. The show will follow 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, and with a twist that that could melt fanboy brains, Berlanti says it’s possible this Supergirl could enter the worlds of Arrow and The Flash.
Interesting, eh? While it would certainly be more possible, considering Berlanti is involved in all three projects, in the past, other projects on other networks – like Constantine and Gotham – have been kept separate.
Hopefully we will have more details on Supergirl soon. The EW issue with the Berlanti profile is available now, and it’s worth a read.
