With the sad cancellation of Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl ending last year, Helbing isn’t entirely confident that a ton of familiar faces will come to the show, but he’s not completely ruling it out.
“With General Lane’s speech there about Superman being the only hero, it might be a little difficult to do crossovers the way we’ve done them historically. I dont know. What will happen is when there is an opportunity. .. I love Grant [Gustin]said Helbing. “Grant is a friend. I have ties to this show [“The Flash”], but I’d say if there is one, ‘Flash’ would probably be my first call. It’s a bit difficult to do all of that right now, but we’ll see what happens.” While all the cameos would be different iterations of the heroes we love, it’s not outside the realm of possibility.
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” seemingly eliminated the multiverse, but it seems like that’s not exactly the case with this revelation. On how this twist will affect some of those storylines, and whether it’s safe to say that this Superman is different than the Superman we met in Supergirl and the crossovers, Helbing confirmed the assumption. “We are another planet, another earth. The Superman you’ve seen in all those crossovers isn’t the same as the Superman on our planet,” he explained. “It’s definitely a double. Part of how this all stacks up with DC in the grand scheme of things is ultimately a DC decision. I’m sure there will be more clarity in the future, but as of now we’re a different Earth DC Universe.”
