'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' to have a crossover with 'Supernatural' where the team meets Baby
The 'Legends of Tomorrow' and 'Supernatural' crossover is finally happening, though not in the way anyone was expecting
Spoiler alert for 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 Episode 9 'Zari, not Zari'
With the 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' pulling in nearly every DC franchise in film and television history, fans have been wondering what the next crossover will be. They need look no further. 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' will be crossing over with 'Supernatural' — though not in the way you might think.
After The CW released photos from the set of an upcoming 'Legends of Tomorrow' episode 'Zari, not Zari', fans noticed that a car in the background was the same one used by Sam and Dean Winchester on 'Supernatural'. The 1967 Chevrolet Impala was complete with the spray-paint demon trap and license plate that proved beyond the doubt that it was 'Baby', the car featured in 'Supernatural'.
Unfortunately, the episode is not quite the crossover fans were hoping for. The Legends will merely be visiting the sets of 'Supernatural' as it's as popular a TV show on Earth-Prime as it is in our universe. Phil Klemmer, one of the showrunners for 'Legends of Tomorrow', spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the soft crossover.
"From the beginning, we knew that we wanted to set an episode in modern-day Vancouver because directly following the crossover that was all we could afford… I’m kidding, sorta, not really. Anyway, we wanted to do a spooky, Predator-style skulk-around-the-woods episode and at the 11th hour decided to have the Legends intersect with the crew of Supernatural. This was the inspired choice of our producing director Kevin Mock, I believe," Klemmer said. "In our world Supernatural is a TV show, not a real thing. Sorry, Supernatural fans."
Klemmer also said that the car wasn't even the one used on the sets of 'Supernatural', but one faithfully recreated by a loyal fan.
The episode description for 'Zari, not Zari' reads: "MEMORIES - Sara (Caity Lotz), Constantine (Matt Ryan) and Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) find themselves in British Columbia searching for another piece of the Loom, but they run into a problem they couldn't have foreseen. Zari (Tala Ashe) has been having trouble feeling like herself, so she goes on meditative journey at the suggestion of Behrad (guest star Shayan Sobhian). Meanwhile, Ava (Jes Macallan) volunteers to try and help Rory (Dominic Purcell) with a personal problem. Nick Zano and Olivia Swann also star. Kevin Mock directed the episode written by Morgan Faust & Tyron Carter."
The next episode of 'Legends of Tomorrow' airs on March 17 on The CW. 'Zari, not Zari' airs on March 24.
