The CW is hosting what’s sure to be an epic four-way crossover between
, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed how some of the characters will react to Kara, a.k.a. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), given she’s one of very few aliens — if not the first — that they’ve come across.
“Some people, like Barry [Grant Gustin], already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her,” Kreisberg says, referring to
crossover from last year. “Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her.
