It’d be too much to ask for Supergirl to start crossing universes with every CW show, but we might have the next best thing. iZombie star Rahul Kohli will guest star in an upcoming episode as a notable DC villain (and Lena Luthor’s ex), but new word suggests Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant might not return for Season 2 after all.

Supergirl’s ability to call on the full Superman cast has been difficult to chart; whether introducing its own Man of Steel after a season spent teasing him, or recent references to Lex Luthor.

The logistics of getting Supergirl to interact with Arrow or The Flash are never easy, but fans have often wondered if the “Earth-1” we follow has a doppelganger Kara Zor-El out there, or if Supergirl’s universe might have an Oliver Queen to facilitate easier appearances.

The Flash’s “Attack on Gorilla City” understandably only had so much capacity to display the CG city and its expensive inhabitants, but will next week’s conclusion to the two-part event fare any better with a whole army of them?
