At the CW Upfronts, Mark Pedowitz basically made all our wildest superhero dreams come true: It looks like Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow are all teaming up!

This better be one hell of a bad guy.

On Thursday morning, CW boss Mark Pedowitz confirmed what we’ve all been waiting and hoping for: With Supergirl ‘home’ on The CW, the network is planning a “mega-crossover” of all four of its DC dramas.

Via IGN’s Eric Goldman:

This has been confirmed by EW, who also brings a direct quote from Pedowitz:

“Just imagine what our superhero crossover episode is going to look like come December. [I’ll be] our biggest one ever.”

Whether this means all four shows, we don’t yet know — but we sure hope so!

Not only does this mean that Kara will (probably) meet Oliver Queen, but it also confirms that, however they plan to sort this whole Supergirl being on another Earth thing, they’ve got a crossover plan in motion that includes the latest member of the CWDC team.

Considering recent events on Legends of Tomorrow (whose series finale is tonight), we’d also be very interested in seeing how a certain Captain Cold could factor into this whole thing. For not to mention Katie Cassidy’s Black Siren, who may or may not be popping up as well.

Of course it’s all speculation at this point, and who knows how The CW will be able to pull it off?! But we’re already psyched. We wonder if this will take place across a whole week (with one bit of the episode in each of the shows’ timeslots), or if one or two of the shows will be bringing in the main cast members from everywhere else.

The News

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
