Melissa Benoist talks SUPERGIRL’s place in ELSEWORLDS crossover

Supergirl (The CW)

The countdown continues to Sunday’s first part of the DCTV Elseworlds crossover. has an interesting interview snippet with Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist discussing how her character fits in to the story.

“What I liked the most about this year’s crossover, I think, more than any other crossover that we’ve done so far — aside from the musical episode, which was my favorite; I had so much fun doing that one — but this one was so fun in particular because it really was the triad, so to speak, the three of us,” Benoist said during a set visit. “Kara plays a really fun role in this dilemma that Barry and Oliver find themselves in. She’s the only one that really recognizes them for who they are in this Freaky Friday situation, and it’s really comedic. The whole thing. I think people will really get a kick out of it.”

Are you excited for Elseworlds? Will you watch each episode as it airs? Or, like us, will you wait until it’s over and marathon the three episodes?

Elseworlds will air for three nights and will begin with The Flash on Sunday, December 9 at 8/7c, continue with Arrow on Monday, December 10 at 8/7c and end with Supergirl on Tuesday, December 11 at 8/7c.
