The Arrow-Supergirl Crossover is Real and Here’s the First Photo

Melissa Benoist and Stephen Amell

It’s real, it’s actually happening, and now there’s photographic proof. “Supergirl” and “Arrow” have crossed paths and nothing could be more exciting.

“Arrow” star Stephen Amell shared the photo of himself suited up as the Green Arrow, side-by-side with “Supergirl’s” Melissa Benoist in all her red caped glory. While fans saw “The Flash” star Grant Gustin appear on “Supergirl” as Barry Allen/The Flash last season, this is the first time Oliver Queen is laying eyes on the Girl of Steel.


Oliver and Team Arrow got their fill of special powers with Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) in Season 4, so there’s no telling how friendly he’ll be with Kara when she makes her appearance. Of course, the reaction fans should be excited to see is Diggle’s (David Ramsey). If he’s freaked out by Barry’s speed, we can’t wait to see what he’ll do when he sees Kara’s heat vision or watches her go up-up-and-away.

Throwing “Supergirl” into the mix makes for what is already a very interesting 100th episode of “Arrow.” Amell previously shared photos of Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) and a mystery character on set for filming. While it’s entirely possible Benoist was the mystery person Amell was keeping a secret, chances are there are a number of surprises in store for episode 100.

For instance, Echo Kellum (Curtis) has shared this fun little tidbit from the set, confirming that Cisco is making his way to “Arrow” for the crossover this year.
