CW ‘Riverdale’ Boss Hints at ‘Supergirl’ Crossover in New Photo
Anyone who knows Archie comics knows the Riverdale gang has met just about every other comic character, so might Riverdale itself follow suit? A new set photo from Season 2 of the CW hit seems to show Supergirl hanging out in Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe, so what does it mean?
Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa dropped a cryptic new tease of either series’ return, showcasing suited-up Supergirl star Melissa Benoist joining Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) for milkshakes. Before we start speculating that Riverdale takes place on Earth-38, or that Barry somehow royally messed up the timeline again, we’d guess the appearance belongs to a fall CW promo, just as we’ve seen Supergirl joining Arrow and The Flash for some promo fun:
That said, Riverdale Season 2 is said to skew a little more supernatural in its second season, so flying Kryptonians may not be so out there as they seem. Perhaps Supergirl even dropped by in search of Brit Morgan; actress behind National City shock jock Livewire, who plays “snake charmer” Penny Peabody in Riverdale Season 2.
In the meantime, Riverdale Season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, October 11, while Supergirl returns two days prior on October 9. Watch the Riverdale Season 2 trailer below and stay tuned.
