Supergirl Dropped by the Riverdale Set to Hang with Betty and Veronica
By Keisha Hatchett,
Is the CW staging another crossover this fall? A new picture suggests so.
On Thursday, Riverdale's creator/showrunner and Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted out a photo of Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) hanging out with Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) at Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe with the caption, "Look who dropped in to #Riverdale for a visit! Worlds colliding!! Can a crossover be far behind??" So does that mean we're getting a crossover between Supergirl and Riverdale? It's possible but I wouldn't count on it.
While the teen soap feels more like a cross between Gossip Girl and Twin Peaks, it's still a series adapted from classic comics meaning that anything can happen. The show even made a loose reference to one if its more supernatural stories, Afterlife with Archie, by showing a zombie Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines) in a dream sequence last season. So having a caped hero drop by for burgers and milkshakes doesn't seem so far-fetched.
Plus, as we've seen with the CW's four-way superhero crossovers in the past, they're not afraid to bend the rules a bit in order to bring different shows together. However, this most likely is just a fun coincidence caught on camera since both shows film in Vancouver and are currently in production. Benoist has stopped by the Riverdale set before, albeit out of her iconic latex suit, so clearly she's a fan.
Besides, Kara will be pretty busy dealing with a new big bad -- Adrian Pasdar's (Heroes, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) ruthless real estate developer, Morgan Edge. The Riverdale crew will also be preoccupied with a darker season ahead that sees Jughead (Cole Sprouse) falling in with the wrong crowd and Veronica's ex Nick St. Clair (Graham Phillips) popping up to cause some drama.
Season 3 of Supergirl premieres Monday, October 9 at 8/7c on The CW. Meanwhile, Riverdale returns for Season 2 on Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 8/7c.
