From virtually the moment it was announced that Arrow and The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti was developing another DC project in Supergirl, there’s been speculation about a potential crossover between the shows.
However, given that Supergirl will air on a different network to her fellow DC superheroes, it would seem the chances are slim, and indeed CBS chairman Nina Tassler confirmed as much back in January. Still, Berlanti himself hasn’t quite given up hope, telling Variety that:
“The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves. 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.”

You ain’t slick, Grey’s Anatomy. This week, the show tried to move us past the shock of Derek’s death and the “aww” of Ellis’ birth by distracting us with another of the mega-calamities for which the series is infamous. But did it work? Read on, then we’ll discuss.

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s… super good news! Ahead of the upfronts next week, CBS has officially granted a full series order to Supergirl.
The series – developed by Arrow and The Flash producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg along with Chuck alum Ali Adler – was given a series commitment last fall, and has picked up quite a bit of buzz ever since. Where it will wind up on CBS’ schedule hasn’t been announced, and likely won’t be until the aforementioned upfronts next week, when the network unveils all of its plans for the upcoming fall television season.
Despite sharing a creative team with the CW DC shows, Supergirl is expected to stand independently from The Flash and Arrow - though I guess crossovers are never out of the question in today’s superhero-driven climate. The show stars Glee‘s Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, »

In what amounts to a news story we all saw coming, CBS has officially given Supergirl a series order. The show – developed and written by Arrow and The Flash showrunners Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with Chuck and No Ordinary Family alum Ali Adler – went into development last fall and was given a series commitment shortly thereafter.
The show stars Glee alum Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, who escaped Krypton’s destruction and has been in hiding on Earth and keeping her powers a secret ever since. The series will pick up when Kara is 24 years old and ready to “embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.” Her famous cousin, Superman, is expected to show up in a small capacity, but the Supergirl will mainly focus on Kara’s solo adventures and coming-of-age journey into heroism.

Heroes Reborn is continuing to add to its already large cast before the series premieres this fall, and the revival’s newest additions include two familiar faces and one very well-known name. Per Deadline and The Wrap, The Mentalist‘s Pruitt Taylor Vince, The 100‘s Eve Harlow, and Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint Eastwood—she’s been in a few films and guest starred on an episode of Perception last year) have all joined Heroes Reborn. The Wrap reports that details on Harlow’s character are being kept under wraps, and while not much is known about Vince or Eastwood’s roles either (although it has been confirmed that they will both be recurring), Deadline states that Vince will be playing an “unassuming but persuasive guy,” with Eastwood’s alter ego being a “manipulative young woman.” Vince, Harlow, and Eastwood join a Heroes Reborn cast that is already filled with many new faces, »

It’s gearing up for a hell of a finale, but female characters don’t come out of this week’s Gotham very well…
This review contains spoilers.
1.21 The Anvil Or The Hammer
Holy sexism, Batman! Only last week, Barbara’s Ogre strand was feeling like a breath of fresh air – a disliked supporting character was given a chance to bounce off a new villain before the main cast got to him. Good times. This week? Not so much. There wasn’t much of anything likeable in her portrayal this week, unfortunately.
We had high hopes that Barbara might get a heroic moment, wrong-footing the murderous misogynist villain at the crucial moment, and thus playing her part in the Batman-pre-empting crime-fighting action of the series.
Gotham Season 1, Episode 21: ‘The Anvil or the Hammer’
Written by Jordan Harper
Directed by Paul Edwards
Aired Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox
The penultimate episode of Gotham superbly closes the Ogre arc and sets the table for what appears to be an exciting, grand season finale. The last couple of episodes have shown Gordon shaken and dead set on taking down the serial killer the Ogre, as he has threatened to victimize his loved one. The discovery that the loved one in question is his former fiancé only makes him more resolute in his undertaking. This episode does an excellent job at showing how determined Gordon is and the wear it takes on him, with Leslie and Bullock reminding him that he needs to take a break before he burns out, but Gordon doesn’t let up. Ben McKenzie is in top form in this episode, as he »
