The Flash and Supergirl posed for a photo for the latest issue of Variety. We get to see Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speeder and Melissa Benoist as the Girl of Steel. Standing between them is Greg Berlanti, one of the minds responsible for the creation of both shows.

With both Gustin and Benoist dressing in costume for the photo shoot, fans have been wondering if we’ll get to see them crossing over to each other’s episodes.

“The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves,” Berlanti said. “I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see (a crossover). I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.”

The Flash is part of The CW, a network owned by both CBS and Warner Bros. Supergirl is part of CBS, so I think that the network should be able to collaborate together.

Supergirl will be airing starting in November on Mondays at 8 p.m. PT/ET. Joining Benoist are Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw. It will also star Dean Cain and Helen Slater, both rumored to be playing Supergirl’s parents.

Based on the characters from DC Comics, Supergirl will follow Kara Zor-El. Born on the planet Krypton, Kara escaped amid its destruction years ago. And since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

The Supergirl pilot is written by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash). They will serve also serve as executive producers with Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros. TV.
