CW Wants Slater to Reprise Supergirl Role in ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’

Wow! By this point, it would be quicker to list the names of DC icons who haven’t been linked to the Arrowverse’s upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover than those that have. 

On that note, while it hasn’t been confirmed just yet, there’s at least one more star that the producers are trying to get on board: Helen Slater, who featured as the Girl of Steel in 1984’s Supergirl movie. EP Marc Guggenheim has been open about the crossover, teasing that no one’s off the table when it comes to “Crisis,” with the exec himself hoping to get Slater back as Kara Zor-El.

Of all the DC stars that might be tricky to land for “Crisis,” Slater should theoretically be one of the easier guest stars to get involved. Like Brandon Routh, who’ll feature as Superman, the actress is already part of the Arrowverse as a different character – she’s played Eliza Danvers, adoptive mother to Melissa Benoist’s Kara, since Supergirl‘s first season. So, you’d think it wouldn’t be too difficult to build on this working relationship they already have with the star to bring her in for the event. Especially when the producers have already pulled off bigger coups that we never thought would happen.
